Listener comments!

  5:55pm listener james from westwood:

happy tuesday and mazel tov, all!
  5:56pm Doug Schulkind:

Rabbi James from Westwood!
  5:58pm ndbob:

evening Doug, James - and Happy Chanakauh
  5:58pm listener james from westwood:

as maimonides once said, sit down, take a load off, listen to some nice music!
  5:59pm Doug Schulkind:

Howdy ndbob, not too many temples out by you I'm guessing.
  6:01pm ndbob:

nope - 100 miles to the nearest one
  6:02pm listener james from westwood:

that could be a helluva walk. maybe a shabbos goy with a bus is in order for that area!
  6:03pm Doug Schulkind:

Is that your Monides, James? I thought it was mine.
  6:03pm ndbob:

my guess is there are no more then 10-15 Jews here in a town of almost 15,000
  6:04pm ndbob:

nice collection here Doug
  6:06pm Doug Schulkind:

It's only gonna get nicer, ndbob. Guess who, later in the show, will sing "My Yiddeshe Mama," Billie Holiday or Tom Jones?!
  6:07pm listener james from westwood:

could be both!
  6:07pm ndbob:

I'd bet on a medley:)
  6:08pm ndbob:

great to hear this - i've read about these recordings
  6:09pm Doug Schulkind:

Listener James and ndbob—I love you.
  6:11pm ndbob:

and we love you too Doug:)
  6:11pm listener james from westwood:

aw shucks.
  6:13pm Doug Schulkind:

Guess its just us three tonight. And the said a threesome wouldn't work.
  6:13pm listener james from westwood:

it's actually been a long time since i've had a latke. a jewish deli out in livingston makes lovely ones, but i always forget about them in my mad rush to the spiced, cured meats.
  6:14pm Doug Schulkind:

Latkes are really good with pork and shellfish.
  6:15pm listener james from westwood:

bizarro world kosher!
  6:16pm listener james from westwood:

some folks might be engaged in hanukkah doings. others may be getting an early start on winter solstice.
  6:17pm Doug Schulkind:

This next track is the first I ever played live over the air from Pittsburgh.
  6:18pm ndbob:

any idea when this was recorded?
  6:19pm ndbob:

I've read about the "Jewface" collection, but I don't have it
  6:19pm Doug Schulkind:

The Joe Maneri was probably mid-'60s. Monroe Silver is 1920.
  6:29pm ndbob:

This is from a great collection with a very informative booklet.
  6:32pm Doug Schulkind:

For true.
  6:48pm listener james from westwood:

ahh, there's one of the covers!
  6:49pm Doug Schulkind:

Oh James, you and your "one of the" covers comment! You show much confidence in me.
  6:53pm listener james from westwood:

if anything, i now dig paul robeson even more.
  6:54pm Doug Schulkind:

Look at the title I gave this playlist from 1997:
  6:57pm listener james from westwood:

as true today as it was in the 90s.
  6:58pm listener james from westwood:

of course, out of reflex, i scrolled to the bottom to see the comments. d'oh! as yet but a gleam in's eye.
  6:59pm Doug Schulkind:

OK, I held up my end of the bargain!
  6:59pm ndbob:

excellent show Doug!.. and here's Tom!
  7:00pm listener james from westwood:

you've done a musical mitzvah, my man.
  7:01pm Doug Schulkind:

Had fun fellers! Thanks for lighting the candles with me.
  7:03pm listener james from westwood:

a happy and peaceful hanukkah to all in squirrel hill and beyond. thanks muchly, doug!
  9:48pm glenn:
