WNUR Conference of the Birds, 2014-10-14

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).

The archive is back. I hope you dig it. I had fun. Not a proper feature, but things led pretty well down a South American route, with late 60’s stuff from Peru, Brazil and Uruguay, among other things.
