Description

Music, comedy, melodrama—what’s not to love at this afternoon extravaganza drawn from the tradition of Yiddish radio? The afternoon includes pulled-from-the-vault broadcast scripts not heard in over sixty years, classic klezmer, original skits, and commercial jingles by Anthony Russell and Jeanette Lewicki, with musicians Sheldon Brown (clarinet), Rob Reich (accordion), and Richard Saunders (bass). Hosted by Harvey Varga (100 Yiddish Words the Average Puerto Rican New Yorker Knows).

Created in conjunction with KlezCalifornia and co-presented by The Jewish Daily Forward.
