In the midst of our simkhe celebrating movement from oppression to freedom, Avi and Malcah catch up with Mark Gunnery over the phone from Baltimore. Gunnery is a veritable Yidisher kemfer with a lot to share about radical Jewish community building…Tune in to hear about Purim protests and Human Rights seders, the Yiddish-zine “Fun Yidishe Reyd Ken Men Zikh Nit Opvashn Tsen Vasern (Ten Washings Won’t Cleanse You of Jewish Talk)”, reclamation, folk and klezmer, and the all-seeing state in a subversive Jew Town near you.
Gunnery has six albums available through through the Riot Folk collective. This week’s show includes the tracks “Government is War” “Destroy all Dreamers” “Kineahora” “Jew Town” and “Anarkikes”. (original air date: March 2009)
