WNUR Conference of the Birds, 2009-07-14

“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.

This weeks’ show archived mostly, but it appears that the network throughput clogged up during the Atomic School Days number (which is a shame for you if you haven’t heard it, ’cause that’s a great tune…)  The Don Pullen track was also nice but you’ll have to take my word for it (or get your own copy…)

DKV trio is playing tomorrow (Wednesday) night at the Hideout, which is always a wonderful thing.

Enjoy what was captured from this weeks show, and as always, your feedback is welcomed…
