Podcasts and audio collected by the Jewish Webcasting Guide

I'm pretty proud of my 'Podcasts and Internet Audio' link list. But I've just met my match. The Jewish Webcasting Guide has a dozens I've never heard of and can't wait to check out. I'm pretty shameless and plan on pilfering a bunch of links. Here are a couple that I'm particularly excited to check out...

This is a delightfully creative music station that is produced daily by Yosi & Tzvia in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania. They welcome mix tapes, station ids, demos, audio tapes, etc. and will incorporate them into their shows.

Online Reggae Radio Station - Live365 Internet Radio - Israel
Playing the very best Israeli reggae music, Israeli dancehall music, Jewish reggae music, and reggae music with linkage to Israel, made by Israelis and international reggae artists, producers and bands, enjoy!

Traditional Jewish music. This station is broadcast over live365, an Internet multi- channel webcasting service.

Jews and Blues: Inside Out
A radio program from WBUR in Boston, an NPR station. The program originally aired in the summer of 2001. Researched and narrated by Michael Goldfarb, it shows how Jewish and African-American music merged in America. The entire documentary can be heard on WBUR's website.

Moroccan Tunes

Jewish melodies and tunes from Fez, Tangier, and Casablanca.

Play It Again, Maurice
A few years ago in Marseilles, a DJ put out a techno dance track that sampled the piano playing and singing of an older musician born and raised in Algeria. The track became an underground hit. In 2003, FRONTLINE/World sent a reporter on a journey to this cosmopolitan city to meet the man at the source of this compelling old-meets-new sound.
