"On the Air!" features the "Yiddish Radio Hour" of October 12, 1969 #yiddish


You can now listen to my next "'On the Air!' rebroadcast" of the "Yiddish
Radio Hour", created and led by the husband-and-wife-team of Zalmen and
Celia Zylbercweig, first broadcast on October 12, 1969 >from their home
studio in Los Angeles, California. Zalmen was the editor and engineer behind
the multi-volume "Lexicon of the Yiddish Theatre", which I am currently
translating (seventy percent done) into English >from the original Yiddish.

The aforementioned half-hour radio program is in Yiddish, of course, and
contains news, commentary and song. It will be especially interesting to
those of you who can understand Yiddish by ear, though someone who has a
better ability to do this that me has created a summary of the program in
English, which I have supplied on the same webpage on which the link to this
broadcast appears. One can hear the program at
http://www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/yw/radio/zz/ota-02.htm . Here you can
hear at least one song in Yiddish >from the play "Di kishufmakherin (The
Witch)", which was to be performed in Beverly Hills that year.

Also for a time, my first " 'On the Air! rebroadcast", featuring the Los
Angeles City Council's presentation of an award to Zylbercweig for his work
on his "Lexicon of the Yiddish Theatre" (English and Yiddish). This can be
found (for a short time) at
http://www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/yw/radio/zz/ota-01.htm .

I plan on changing "rebroadcasts" every months or two, until I run out of
recordings. There is more music, commentary, events, etc., that will be
featured in future "rebroadcasts". I am hoping to find more volunteers who
are willing to "preview" future program recordings and summarize them, as
this last volunteer has done.
