Hi everybody!  So here we are with another great show for you to listen to and enjoy! This is the program of May 27th which was a “combination platter” of sorts. The way the calendar worked out, we had to put the Shavuos program first which left over this very nice program of music for Yom Yerushalayim and the American Memorial Day. Lots of rare and priceless music for the two holidays. Here is the playlist for the show:


Part One-Yom Yerushalayim

Sissu Et Yerushalayim-Darom Duo-1975


Yerushalayim Shel Zahav-Danny Kaye (1913-1987) accompanied by the Zamir Chorale. From the very rare album “Stars Salute Jerusalem”-1973

Part Two-Memorial Day

For Memorial Day, we go back to the treasure trove of vintage radio broadcasts for recordings from the World War II years. Great recordings, all with Jewish connections.
