WNUR Conference of the Birds, 2013-10-08

“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).

In classic WNUR style, the stream went down because the person who paid for it is no longer around and the credit card expired. So I don’t think you’ll ever hear this one. Feel free to clamor: I could probably reconstruct it minus my narration if there are things anyone was really longing to hear… or I could just play those tracks on future shows.
