The second episode of my radio show "Zing!" about Yiddish songs (in English!) is a tribute to the New York Jewish immigrant experience! With pearls from the Sound Archive of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research
It will be aired several times this week on Radio Yiddish Pour Tous - an incredible initiative lead with talent and love by Charles Goldszlagier, with the beautiful team of "Yiddish Pour Tous" - a recently born French-based Yiddish culture association, which started as this very lively facebook group :)!
