This show is for the birds!

Birds! This week's show is all about one of my favorite sources of music - the birds of spring. From post-punk heavyweights Killing Joke and Public Image Ltd to recent cuts from Chris Mills and The Wheat Pool, all the songs are dedicated to our neighborhood avian singers. Sure, most of the music isn't as serene and beautiful as the tweets we hear outside but as a theme it pulls together quite well.
