Cantors/Liturgical Music

 

                                                                                                              September 5, 2010

Dear Mrs.  Falk:

 

     The liturgical music is splendid!  Thanks so much.  Please keep it coming.

     By the way, if you have any cookbooks left over after distributing them to your children, please make an announcement during the "The Yiddish Hour".  I would love to purchase some more for my collection.

 

     Happy New Year.

 

                                                                                                            Respectfully,

                                                                                                            S.E.  Halpern

Got up late. ;-(

 Hey, I missed the Yiddish Hour this morning. Is it archived? How do I find it to listen to? --DameEdithDivine@gmail.com

Old Show archives

Dear Dame Divine!

We don't podcast our regular music shows for legal reasons.  KBOO pays a license to broadcast and stream live over the internet, but not for later podcast so ... sorry.

If we produce content ourselves such as the comedy skits and interviews, that you can find via the audio link on our Yiddish Hour page.  We also post playlists in case you need to know what we played.   That show was by Barry ... the KBOO website is undergoing a revision and it might take a few more days before you can see the playlist from that show.

Of course, if you are clever you could set your computer to capture the live stream of the show to disk then play it back at your convenience!  It's just that we can't legally do this for you.

All the best,

Ed

Yiddish Hour - 9/6/09 show

A lively broadcast. Enjoyed Sheila Fox's voice and joyful klezmer music, a beautiful gift for Elul. Thanks to Liz for bringing this show to KBOO.

Ramon Tasat

Ed-

Who is Ramon Tasat? (Who is John Galt?!!?)

L

Ramón Tasat

Hello L ... I have posted comments on the playlist for today's show (Feb 8th) that should point you all in the right direction regarding Ramón Tasat. Sorry that I neglected to give you this basic biographical info on the air, but the Emergency Alert System procedures distracted me. Please give us your feedback about the Yiddish Hour, we are always looking to find out what the audience likes. As your program hosts, we have a great deal of flexibility in what we program...so if you give us feedback we can do a better job for you! Ed

yiddish hour

I like this fuzzy-quality, old-school stuff from the 1920's and earlier that comes up every now and then on the Yiddish Hour! My entry into Klezmer and other Yiddish music was through modern bands like New Orleans Klzemer All-stars and Rabbincal School Dropouts, definitely yiddish-infused but with a heavier, funky beat. It's cool to go back and hear the source. Thanks!

Old-school klezmer

Glad you like the archival stuff; it's some of my favorite music to play, too, precisely for the reason you mentioned. Also, nobody tears it up like Dave Tarras, IMO.

Zei gezint,

Liz

great program, shanda at Spertus

Hi Yankl,

Great show today!

I hope you had a great time in Chicago visiting your kids. I got to know Shainah when she joined the shul where I davened in Chicago. I moved back to PDX (my hometown) last summer, though I try to get back to visit the Chicago chevra at least once a year. I was hoping to see the maps exhibit at Spertus too when I get back there next, and think that censorship is generally an immature response to difficult questions. I hope you get someone from Spertus on the show next week so we can hear more about this.

Groisse dank,
Bracha

Portland Yiddish Hour

Hello,

I was looking for the set list for the May 11th 2008 show. There was a song that I heard at about 10:30 am that morning, entitled "Gefilte Fish and Matzo Balls" I think. I wanted to know who the artist was that performed the song.

Greatly Appreciated!!

Much Thanks,
Christopher

Gefilte fish and matzo balls

Thanks for getting in touch about our May 11 show. We had a sub that day, but I know (and love) the track that you're asking about, which was recorded by Slim Gaillard. He had a few other Yiddishoid records, such as the immortal "Draysik Sents".
