The Forgotten Works ,

A magical auditory present every week.

I truly look forward to Cope's weekly gift to the world. So many thoughtful things placed in there...

Conference of the Birds Smokes!

Like a weekly Radio show, Dr. Cope arranges this podcast of international music and jazz with care and dedication. As an avid listener and player of music, this show receives my highest regard. It is complimentary, so check it out. Take a trip through South America, the Middle East, Africa and then proceed into outer space with the jazz selections. Get on board. There is so much music and so little time!
