WNUR Conference of the Birds, 2013-11-05

“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).

I was pleased to come home last night to my pre-ordered copy of “Wood Flute Songs”, an epic eight-disc anthology of live recordings from the William Parker Quartet and some extended groups based on the quartet. With eight discs, it was no problem to spend all of today’s show listening to selections from the set.

You can get it in stores next Tuesday (November 12) and hopefully if you like what you hear on today’s show you will!

Enjoy!
