What was Serge Gainsbourg’s big “Jewish” hit song? Why did Jazz legend Willie “The Lion” Smith speak so much Yiddish? In the mood for some North African trash-pop? Check out this episode of Shtetl on the Shortwave. It’s a music special juste pour toi!

You may be asking yourself, “What is kosher gospel?” Tune in to hear Shtetl’s live interview with the man who originated this form of Jewish musical expression, African-American cantor Joshua Nelson.

Jewish Gospel King, Joshua Nelson will be making an appearance in Montreal this month.

Tune in for Shtetl’s tribute to music that’s BLACK & JEWISH. From old tunes you’re sure to recognize to ones that will surely be new. Happy Black History Month people!!
