Listener comments!

  8:17pm vanya:

great yiddish tunes! and others! right on, MAC!
  8:20pm Dave in PA:

RE;the first tune - what was with that clacking percussion that was so prevalent on the early recordings? The knocking sound... you know... ???
Avatar 8:22pm MAC:

I think it is a woodblock
  8:23pm Scuttle:

Think this one was on Boardwalk Empire!
  8:52pm yayson:

sounded like he was saying 'broken record'
  8:57pm paul:

Thanks for the session. we grooved!
  9:00pm Iaphanteroteris:

Another two minutes and that soup'd be red hot.
  9:01pm Galganga:

So nice to hear your voice again Tom
  7:09pm conrad:

your welsh pronunciation was funny.
the Ys are pronounced like short Is. its more like a-berr-IST-wif and glin-DUR. (thought you might like to know for the future.)
male voice choirs are associated with churches, but im not sure if the songs are religious. aberystwyth is the name of a town.
  12:32pm Tomas:

Great show, loving the ethnic tunes.
