It’s been a tough summer but like Michael Franti says, “Everyone deserves music“.  This episode we’ll be playing lots of music featured at this year’s Montreal Jewish Music Festival happening from Aug 24th to August 28th.  Sounds of Iraqi pop, music from Pakistan, from Toronto, New York, Argentina, Yiddish gangster tunes and more. We’ll also have a short interview with Paul Estrin, recently resigned president of the Green Party of Canada who left due to controversy over a blog post he wrote about Gaza on the political party’s page.
