Five Tiny Desk Concerts You Have To Watch On NPR's New Roku Channel http://ualrpublicradio.org/post/five-tiny-desk-concerts-you-have-watch-nprs-new-roku-channel A big perk of working at NPR is front-row access to the <a href="http://www.npr.org/series/tiny-desk-concerts/" target="_blank">Tiny Desk Concerts</a> filmed at <em>All Songs Considered </em>host Bob Boilen's desk. They are delightful, intimate performances from artists you know and others you haven't heard before.<p>"But I don't work at the NPR HQ," you say? You can watch all the Tiny Desk Concerts online and in our mobile apps, though we know it just isn't quite the same as being three feet from Adele.
