All Songs Considered, the NPR podcast and radio show hosted by Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton, has been fostering public-radio listeners' musical discovery for 16 years. To celebrate, the two picked their favorite song from each of those 16 years to spotlight in a recent episode of the show.

Here, Boilen joins World Cafe to play five of those picks and discuss the evolution of the show, which began when he received a great response to the music he'd chosen between the stories as director of NPR's All Things Considered.
