Better Days Radio broadcast – Episode 313 (audio links)

This is one of my favorite weekly broadcasts. Doug Lang hosts Better Days on CFRO Radio (Vancouver BC) each Thursday night. Since he’s two time zones away I usually end up listening on Friday morning. It’s always a treat to see what he airs each week – his taste is eclectic but superb. Not only will you find a mix of new releases and an abundance of treasures, Doug will often share his own talents via in studio performances of his songs or spoken word recitations. I’m going to make an effort to make sure I pass on the listening links and playlist each week as I think there are many TCB readers who would enjoy the programming as well. Here is last night’s episode for your enjoyment titled “Transient”
