A PLAYLIST UPDATE AND SOME OTHER ITEMS
You will notice that the playlist for Sunday Simcha appears on the right hand bar. For easier viewing I shall post them in this format starting next week--both for Traditions and Sunday Simcha.
The picture on the left is of Eric Bibb. We honored some requests today to play from his new CD---a wonderful tribute to Paul Robeson that he did with his father Leon Bibb.
Now for a few more updates on the various programs:
TRADITIONS: On January 14 I will be welcoming Erik Balkey as my guest for some live music and also to talk about an upcoming appearance in Jersey City with the multi-faceted David Buskin. In addition, Martin Luther King Day will certainly me commemorated in song and in speech. Some quite rare.
SUNDAY SIMCHA: A potpourri of music and a request for your opinion on one piece that will be played. The question will be what you think of this style of music---an "updating" of traditional Jewish music.
The other 2 pieces of news are that I am delighted to be able to welcome Laurie Nieves to the program on January 21 for some of her original compositions done live in the studio. Then at Passover time---looking ahead now--we will be having Rabbi Jonathon Kligler and Kim and Reggie Harris in the studio to talk about the common bond we all share historically and have music from their Passover CD.
TABLETALK: The award winning author, Daniel Silva, is my guest on the January 14 program.
