WNUR Conference of the Birds, 2015-01-20

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).

For some reason the stream archive cut a little short, so you get most of the David Boykin track but not the ones after.

That said, there’s plenty of great music until then.
