Radio is impossible these days. Every station has become Christmas Central, with the occasional inclusion of an Adam Sandler song to keep the Jews from rebelling. What the world needs now is a whole week of Chanukah radio, with all of our Chanukah songs in heavy rotation.
According to the JTA, we’re “lucky” enough to be getting a Chanukah radio station of our very own on XM Satellite Radio: “Focus will be on the holiday’s music and traditions,” and featuring the musical (and non-musical) stylings of “Jewish celebrities and politicians, including Barenaked Ladies, Matisyahu, Al Franken, Kinky Friedman, U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), Neil Sedaka and Dr. Ruth Westheimer.”
What? No LeeVees?
