Jewish Waves: What they're listening to in Wisconsin

WTKM 104.9 out of Hartford, Wisconsin, is my kind of station. Polka first. Polka second. And then everything else. And that everything happens to include Jewish Waves, a weekly radio show hosted by Marge Eiseman and Andy Muchin. Jewish Waves provides a "blend of music, commentary, interviews, maybe a recipe, a story or a studio visit with a musician." Those of us not in the Wisconsin listening area can listen to recorded shows. Right now the website only has about 15 shows from February 2007 to May 1 2007. I'm going to email them and see their still on the air.

I heard from Marge Eiseman, one of the show hosts, and they are still broadcasting. They'll either catch up on posting their shows or switch over to a podcasting format sometime soon. By the way, it turns out that Eiseman is singer with one album sold-out on CD-Baby and available for download on OySongs and a new one on the way.

Here's a playlist from their March 4 show. (note the Kinky Friedman. I love these folks!)

(By the way, I grew up a bit south of Hartford, Connecticut which is the Connecticut state capital. I was always amused that name Hartford is just a polite way of saying 'damp deer crossing'. Yes I know that's a really obscure joke. I was an English major in college and it scarred me. Maybe some day I'll tell joke about the cat and the comma. Or maybe not...)

Q: What's the difference between a cat a and a comma?

A: One has claws at the end of it's paws, the other is a clause at the end of a pause.
