Shortwave | shtetl turns two

The terrible two’s are here and Shtetl is ready! After two years of being that cute kid with the crazy big cheeks, Shtetl on the Shortwave is now a mature and sophisticated… toddler.This week we’re going to celebrate what was with a “Best of Shtetl” -at least what I can manage to fit into one hour, plus, music by The Barry Sisters, Boogie Balagan, Regina Spektor, Kinky Friedman, Rotfront and a LIVE performance inYiddish by Brona Levy.

Thanks to everyone for listening and especially to the folks who sent birthday wishes and even birthday gelt (Yiddish for dinero)! With all the presents, Shtetl will soon be the owner of her very own recording equipment. Thanks for supporting independent radio with a Jewish twist! We’re gonna do our best to keep searching for interesting stories, to continue learning, and to keep you listening!
