Sounds Jewish 

An eclectic mix of Jewish music from klezmer to hip-hop to indie rock, hosted by quirky Jewish expert, Andy Muchin.

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. 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's nothing like it anywhere else!
