Some Upcoming Appearances and A Few Other Bits of Minutae
Some items for the various programs:
SUNDAY SIMCHA: As you all know Purim is just around the corner and we shall meet you with our "gregers" in hand and with some festive music. The big news is what is planned for PASSOVER .
The cover of a CD you see on the left is a must have in your collection and is put out by, to me, the record company that, in my opinion, is one of the rare entities that still releases meaningful material and not just the "pop" and commercial material.
On Sunday Simcha I am happy to say that I will be joined by three of the main artists that have put this together---Kim and Reggie Harris along with Rabbi Jonathon Kligler. We will devote the entire hour to this greatly anticipated and timely visit. It will be recorded at Rabbi Kligler's Congregation in Woodstock, NY and will cover music (from the CD) as well as a discussion of the common bonds all people have in this world. Be they Jewish, African-American, or of any ethnicity or religion. Passover seems a most appropriate time to present this program and we are honored to have these sincere, talented, and insightful people join the program for this program.
TRADITIONS: Some great programs in the offing now that Ron and I have gotten past the much needed fund raising efforts at WFDU to keep this eclectic programming on the air. Eclectic programming you will find nowhere else on the radio dial. That is not a mere BS statement---think about it. Dial around.
We plan to air our Traditions Showcase from NERFA and more material recorded there in March. In April Deborah Holland will be joining me in the studio. She is touring in this area at the time and we will recall her last visit to
Also---some live music in the studio from this greatly talented person.
AND NOW THE MINUTAE FOR SOME HUMOR --OR AS MONTY PYTHON SAYS---Something completely different:
Nice old Jewish Grandmother takes the little boychick to the beach and a huge wave washes him away. She looks to the heavens and pleads that she has been a pious and devout woman all her life---Why oh Why should this happen---please send him back to me.
Another huge wave delivers him safe and sound to the beach. After much hugging and kissing Jewish Grandmother looks to the heavens again--"...he had a hat".
Moving on: Man walks into a bar and says that he can identify any wine served to him while blindfolded and let us make wagers. The patrons and barkeep agree---1st one: Chateau Rothschild 1925---perfect. Next: Coppola 1992--excellent. This goes on until one of the inebriated pees into a glass and the hand it to Mr. Expert---he sips and says ---Ech! Urine. Yes---but by who and when?
If you have any jokes (PG rated) to share please use the e mail addresses for either program or post them as comments here.
And let us never forget the 3 musical notes that go into a bar---G flat, B flat, and A flat. They are thrown out because this bar does not serve minors.
