Sounds Jewish is a weekly program hosted by Andy Muchin for MPB Music Radio. Andy’s encyclopedic knowledge of Jewish music of all different genres creates a unique sound for Sunday afternoons. In one program, you might hear a traditional klezmer piece, a stand-up comic routine from the 60s, Israeli hip-hop and the gentle tones of a singer/songwriter. There is nothing like this show anywhere else! Listen to Sounds Jewish, Sunday afternoons at 3 on MPB Music Radio.
