In this week's episode of All Songs Considered, co-hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton are joined by NPR Music's Stephen Thompson, who tries to find a solution to the problem of cell phones at concerts in light of The Lumineers stopping their international hit "Ho Hey" to tell people to put their phones down. Bob surprises everyone by having actually seen the 1980s children's movie Lars Gotrich uses to describe Aloonaluna. Also find out what Brookyln high school hip-hop collective is sampling the Carol Burnett show. Premieres include Elf Power and Bill Callahan.
