WNUR Conference of the Birds, 2011-08-09

“Conference of the Birds” is my weekly radio program on WNUR-FM. It airs on Tuesdays from 5-7:30 am Chicago time (UTC-5). 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 once again see one jumbo list of my past playlists (back to 9/2008 when WNUR started online playlists), for easier searching.)

Again, a theme-free show, ranging pretty widely from jug band to Stereolab and Ali Hassan Kuban to TV on the Radio.

The archiver successfully grabbed the first full track from John’s show (a number from the recent William Parker Organ Quartet album) so I’m passing that along to you at no additional charge.
