Face The Music 47: Freilach in Swing

arwulf arwulf is holding forth at WCBN-FM, Ann Arbor with a celebration of Jewish music this week in a program from 2013. Part of the methodology involved assembling recordings that would have bothered Joe Goebbels: George Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, Irving Berlin, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, even a team of harmonizing Chassids! Also a nice opportunity to air lots of Ziggy Elman.
