WNUR Conference of the Birds, 2014-09-23

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-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).

My home computer which archives the stream of the show melted down pretty seriously, so this show was not archived. Use your imagination!
