Better Days Radio broadcast – Episode 294 (audio links)

Here’s a great eclectic independent radio broadcast I listen to weekly. I inevitably learn something new, hear a song or an artist that was elusively waiting to be discovered and I am always glad I made the time to tune in. Doug’s recitations and live performances are particularly worth setting time aside for. Enjoy. (And remember you can catch Doug Lang/Better Days Radio live on each Thursday night at 10 p.m. PST)
