WNUR Conference of the Birds, 2014-04-22

WNUR 2014 T-Shirt design“Conference of the Birds” is my weekly radio program on WNUR-FM. It airs on Tuesdays from 5-7:30 am Chicago time (UTC-). 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).

This show commemorates the impending merger of my household with that of Faithful Listener No. 1. But definitely not all of the songs are thematic, so don’t try too hard.
