Episode 144 of 797 episodes

On our All Songs Considered blog we recently asked listeners to tell us about a favorite band that few people have ever heard. Think of it as "a band to call your own" — an artist or group you love and want to keep all to yourself, even though you know it'd be cool if they got the attention they deserve. We got a lot of suggestions. On this edition of All Songs Considered we share some of the standouts. You can read about more "bands to call your own" on our blog.
