Episode 72: Mayoral Monsters/Channukah 5773
December 16, 2012

Our 72nd episode fell on the 3rd night of Channukah this year. Tune in to hear us light the candles and celebrate, live on the radio. In the second part of the show, we join a creative feminist intervention into municipal politics. Reena Katz organized a live in person and web reading of the Cynthia Ozick novella: “Putermesser and Xanthippe.” We spoke to Reena about this project and tuned in to hear an excerpt of the reading.

With music by Klezroym (“Yankele Nel Ghetto”), DeLeon (“Ochos Kandelikas”), Y-Love (“Hanukkah, Oy Hanukkah”), Klezmer Conservatory Band (“O Ir Kleyne Likhtelekh”), Jerusha (“Latke Dance”)

Episode 10: ‘Tis the season…for assimilation and resistance
December 22, 2008

radio613’s Chanukah show! Malcah and Avi chat about the
“Chanukah Season.” Why is Malcah’s favourite Chanukah song a Christmas song? How do we connect the struggle against destruction of Jewish life, identity, and culture by the ancient Maccabees and our current struggle against assimilation? Lots of fun airing of grievances and Chaunukah stories.

Chanukah music by Rage Against the Machine, Daddo & the Ladino Voice, the Leevees, Theodore Bikel, and Yurodny.
