WNUR Conference of the Birds, 2012-11-20

“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).

I missed last week’s show, but on my travels I picked up quite a few goodies to share. I didn’t even manage to touch on all the new albums, so between those and more tracks from things I had today, that should keep things fun for a few weeks.
