Some Misc. Program Notes

A few updates on some of the upcoming things on both TRADITIONS and SUNDAY SIMCHA as well as some other items.

Let us start with

TRADITIONS: This coming Sunday there are a few things you should know in advance. KATE CAMPBELL is not a featured artist (it is not the usual thing for TRADITIONS) but you will hear a lot by her because she is one of the most insightful and prolific songwriters and, as it happens, she touches so many bases on this week's program. That also includes a song about the Moon Landing that has been in the news this past week---and a whole different take on it.

DEBRA LYNNE will be another artist which, while it is not an introduction to her, will present you with some of her new work and, of course, some schmoozing from me on how I got to it and to meet her. Quite the charming person and wonderful songwriter. My never so humble opinion---why oh why do they say on the internet--IMHO---how about IMNSHO. Lots of letters but more truth. Sorry---here is Debra:

Lots of other things that I hope will surprise and also intrigue you this week including some requests with special attention to one that should be truly meaningful.

The Thrills of The Hills, The Best in The West, and The Tops in Pops is a bit longer this coming Sunday but, I believe, worth the time. Some nostalgia and some updating---sort of what that WPAT segment might be like today---and I feel you will pick up on the thread of it.

Speaking of threads. If you have an idea in any week what the thread was just e mail me at No prize---just a mention that you are a Traditions Treasure the next week---if it were SUNDAY SIMCHA--a Tzadick. That alliteration does not work with Sunday Simcha ---unfortunately.

Speaking of SUNDAY SIMCHA: This coming Sunday I am delighted to be able to present to you some wonderful new material from SUSAN COLIN as well as THE ALEXANDRIA KLEZTET .

Since the show ends each week with the pre-cursor of Stephen Colbert, Sascha Baron Cohen, and others---ANDY KAUFMAN. A comedian who never told a joke--always stayed in character (which Cohen does not always do and Colbert does) why not feature this brilliant artist in Comedy Corner---and there he will be.
