Your Cabin Primer - Airs June 15th
We'll be spinning some phonography again; an LP titled Voices of the Loon put out by the National Audubon Society and North American Loon Fund in 1980. Many consider this to be THE definitive loon recording (and rumor is that these are the very recordings used in the film On Golden Pond.) First up, a fascinating lesson of our state bird's calls and then we'll dive into some wonderful field recordings at the end of the program. Voices of the Loon was written and produced by William Barklow. Narration and loon call identification is provided by Robert Lurtsema. This recording was re-released in 2007 on Minneapolis' Swallowtail Records. You can order it on compact disc right here.
