Radio Broccoli

Most of the week, Wicklowman, Duncan McNiff sells millions of dollars worth of broccoli from San Francisco.

On Fridays, he does something different: he takes a small audio recorder out and accosts people around California.

He's looking for good stories and interesting sounds.  Here are a few examples ... and here.

The Curious Ear is produced by Ronan Kelly,

March 2012

Note:  Duncan McNiff died in 2016.  Our condolences to his family and friends.
