Yiddish Culture in the US #general

I know that this only distantly related to genealogy, but I hope you will
nonetheless publish this message. National Public Radio is currently running
a series about Jewish Radio in the period in the 1920's and 1930's. These
are based on acual recordings of the programs on radio stations, probably
mostly in New York. These contain Yiddish music of this time, ads for
products that immigrant Jews would have been interested in, Jewish soap
operas and more. I heard the first program today, Tuesday, the 19th of March
and I was very moved by this glimpse into another lost world, the world of
Jewish immigrants. This series will last for 9 weeks on each Tuesday. There
is also an announcment of this on NPR.org.
