WNUR Conference of the Birds, 2009-04-07

“Conference of the Birds” is my weekly radio program on WNUR-FM.  It airs on Tuesdays from 5-7:30 am Chicago time (UTC-6). And, of course, when technology cooperates, you can just come here for the archives.

Archiving is back this week!  Note that CotB favorites Louie Belogenis and Karl Berger both appear on the “Old Dog” album… The Gil Evans tune is one of his many arrangements of Jimi Hendrix compositions…  and the briefly mentioned expansion of CotB to 3.5 hours will not be happening next week, or at any foreseeable time in the future.  There was some miscommunication about scheduling during the show.
