WNUR Conference of the Birds, 2014-11-11

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-6). 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).

Don’t be startled, there’s no technical difficulty: this week’s show starts with Kathleen’s voice—she’s the host of K Theory Radio and she ended her show this week with a track that seemed like a natural for Conference of the Birds, so I kept it in the archive.

Otherwise, there may be a bit more of a rock vibe in this week’s show than most weeks, but still pretty balanced, I think.
