WNUR Conference of the Birds, 2011-02-01

“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. You can subscribe to the podcast with this URL (click here to subscribe in iTunes). You can also see one jumbo list of my past playlists (back to 9/2008 when WNUR started online playlists), for easier searching.

I’m not really sure I can boil down today’s show into anything particular, so just listen and enjoy!
