This is Urbaign Conversation

Varietal issues examined objectively through a local lens

3 March 2006

We have taken the audio of our past programs offline, but if you should like to obtain them for any reason, please e-mail Sid.

2 November 2002

Unfortunately, one of us has become too busy to continue doing the program, as he is working intently on his PhD dissertation, so Urbaign Conversation will be taking a short hiatus whilst Sid evaluates the direction in which he should like to proceed.

We recommend using WinAmp to listen to this program, so that you can listen to it as it downloads and seek around.
