There was a time when the airwaves were alive with the sound of Yiddish. The world of Jewish music, commentary, radio dramas, and commercials is brought back to life on The Yiddish Radio Project, as featured on National Public Radio. Featuring the lights of Jewish entertainment in the '30s, '40s, and '50s, from the Barry Sisters to Dave Tarras's klezmer to cantor Moishe Oysher -- shilling for Stanton Street Clothiers! -- this collection charms and surprises. As downtown speakers became entranced with the uptown sound of jazz and swing, a whole new genre of Jewish music was born. With track after delightful track of Jewish jive and hilarious advertisements, The Yiddish Radio Project captures a lost world for posterity. In English and Yiddish, it's a mechaieh for the whole family.
