I do hope I will be seeing many of you this Sunday at The museum of the Jewish Heritage in NYC (Battery Place).  Should be a great show and we have played much music from it on SUNDAY SIMCHA,   

A few thoughts about some of the artists that have appeared on both of my programs---SUNDAY SIMCHA & TRADITIONS.   I want to offer my thanks for being able to play, for you, such wonderfully talented people.  As someone once said to me---" and your voice are so wonderful radio--"  NO--it is the talent I able to present and the wonderful conversations with the truly talented people that appear on both programs.

You may note that I never "share" them with you---I present them.  The difference, and the point. is these are the talents and I am honored to present them to you.  Hopefully you appreciate them as I do.  

For some future references----I am planning to have some interesting guests on both TRADITONS & SUNDAY SIMCHA---as they say TBA.   You know that, recently, we have had the filmakers of KOCH and HAVA NAGILA (hope you saw this---a joy)   

NOW---if you have any suggestions for St. Patrick's Day music (TRADITIONS) do let me know---I have a few and we do start with Allan Sherman---our one listener who finds such selections objectionable is not a listener I hope to attract---I want to attract out listeners w/ a sense of humor and an appreciation of variety,

One final thought regarding TRADITIONS.   Many years back there was a fellow on the station---Larry Hopper.  I do not claim any Hank William expertise.  Only a love of his talent.   Should you want an hour devoted to some rarities and some popular items let me know---we will, as it is said, work it out.

Some Updates and Coments

I am glad you skipped over here from the Playists.   Frankly,  I could have put this on that site but why dilute what should be only for the playlists and the commentary.   So---let me present a few thoughts and observations about some upcoming events and about both of the programs----

I do hope you will be coming down to the Museum of The Jewish Heritage on 3/10 (2 PM) for a terrific show that will be musically directed by Zalmen Mlotek---Ghetto Tango.. I will be there.  Please stop and say hello---or goodbye---whatever your choice.  

Some comments now about the 2 programs---SUNDAY SIMCHA & TRADITIONS.  A joy to be able to present them both to you on, probably, the only station left that allows such free-form and creative radio---WFDU.   Your support of that and the programs was truly appreciated.

I do now have a few questions which I hope you will be able to respond to--

1) SUNDAY SIMCHA----I am truly appreciative of the support and the folks tuning in (I could have said "listenership) but this sounds nicer.   I get more e mails and comments on that program than I do at TRADITIONS.  My question---Why?   You also get more freebies in the form of CDs there.
2)  TRADITIONS----Many times I ask for requests---comments, etc;   Nada.  I assume you like my choices of music and also the features.  Should you want to comment---please do.   Here or my e mail at

The only other item is to say what I always do at Sign Off Time----Stay in Touch and Stay Well---I am your Jewish Mother---do not disobey that edict.
