A music special from Public Radio International: More than two thousand years ago, in the days of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, the religious life of the Jews was brought almost to a halt by the ancient Greeks. But rather than give in to the pressure to assimilate, a band of Jews who practiced their faith in secret returned to their holy city and rededicated the Temple. Their courageous act and its aftermath form the focus of Chanukah, the Jewish Festival of Lights. Mindy Ratner and Bill Morelock offer a program which explores the customs and music of the holiday: Dec. 9 until Dec. 16.
"Theme Attic," the radio show that picks themes and plays music from a variety of genres about selected subjects, usually has a playlist that's twice as long as the show. That means that a lot of GREAT music gets left out. This week's show takes care of some of that problem, as some songs that were accidentally left off of other themes get their chance. There will also be some seasonal songs as well. Join host DJ Phil Maq on Thursday, December 6th, at 10:00AM for his clever and unusual takes on music!
