Face the Music 1.31.13

This broadcast was conceived as a celebration of Jewish music.
Part of the methodology involved assembling recordings
that would have bothered Joe Goebbels: George Gershwin, 
Richard Rodgers, Irving Berlin, Benny Goodman,
Artie Shaw, even a team of harmonizing Chassids!
Also a nice opportunity to air lots of Ziggy Elman.
