Episode 60: On Holy Ground
March 5, 2012

For this year’s funding drive show, radio613 features a conversation about The Klezmatics: On Holy Ground, including an interview with the film’s directer, Erik Greenberg Anjou. The film has recently been released on DVD with extra bonus footage. This radio613 episode includes some great clips from the film in which the band members and others share their thoughts about politics, Yiddishkeit, Klezmer renewal, and operating as a non-hierarchical, consensus-based band.

Featuring some wonderful music, including: a live version of Barikadn by the Klezmatcs, Joshua Nelson, The Well by the Klezmatics with Chava Alberstein and Im Ninalu by Watcha Clan.

Episode 55: Sukkos fly on the temporary wall
October 30, 2011

This year, the radio613 collective survived the rain and cold in our beautiful little sukkah WITH a recorder! Tune in to hear our rituals, thoughts, readings and discussions. With beautiful music from Steven Bernstein, the Afro-Semitic Experience, the Klezmatics, and the Shondes. If you are sad the simcha is over and want to spend a little more time relishing in the wonders of sukkos, you can also give a listen to our previous sukkot shows from 2009 and 2008.
