WNUR Conference of the Birds, 2012-09-18

“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).

Another week, another headache with the stream. They got it back up, but at a new URL, and I didn’t realize that until after the show, so my archiver was listening to the internet equivalent of “dead air.” Since this week’s show wasn’t thematic, and because I played a few things from the station that I don’t have at home, it’s just hard enough to fake it out like I did the last couple, so I’m going to skip that. I’m not sure anyone is going to miss it. But for the record, here is the playlist…
