Product Description

The soundtrack to the Yiddish Radio Project is a musical voyage to the wonderful, and sometimes strange, Yiddish radio universe of the 1930s to '50s. The CD includes songs by the Yiddish Melodies in Swing Orchestra, the dueling clarinetists Dave Tarras and Naftule Brandwein, and Seymour Rexite, the Frank Sinatra of Yiddish radio, universally adored for his Yiddish versions of "Surrey with a Fringe on Top" and "The Battle Hymn of the Republic." Also featured on the CD are the unforgettable commercial jingles of Joe and Paul Clothiers, Manischewitz Matzo, and many more.
