If you’ve never listened to XM/Sirius Radio, you can get a free trial here. Why would you bother? Because they have awesome programming, including a certain segment tomorrow you may find worth your time. It’s a conversation between a poet laureate and a daughter of Jewish immigrants who also happens to be a three-time presenter at Jewlicious Festivals. The topic? American Jewish identity… just in time for the 4th of July.

The show airs tomorrow, Wednesday, July 1st, at 1 pm or 7 pm EST at XMRadio.com. Tune in to Channel 156, Oprah Radio, and hear Dr. Maya Angelou discuss how she appreciates and identifies with the tragedies and triumphs of the Jewish people in her own inimitable way.

FYI: The show lasts about an hour and this Jewie segment comes on about 20 minutes before the close.

If you’d like to hear a sample or have only five minutes to spare, check out this snippet of the program online. There’s no XM subscription required for this sample.

Again, if you want a free trial, you can sign up here. Best of all, it’s economic downturn-worthy. No credit card required.
