    Thanks for one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite groups. Yes, and it’s a Chanukah song..if you can find the Adam Sandler Chanukah song, it’s also a fun one.

      You are quite welcome. You listen to all the Christmas songs so I wanted to post one for you.

    I’ve had this one in my head lately. Glad you posted it. My wife Jeri has a jazz program on WERU radio here in Maine, and she did a show last Monday eve with theme of “light.” We discovered a Peter Paul & Mary CD in our pile called “The Prague Sessions,” where the Czech Symphony Orchestra does backup for a lot of their songs, including this one. So that’s the version she played. When we checked it out first, I cranked the CD player on this song, and when Mary’s voice came in I just melted.
    weru.org if you care to check it out. A community station, pretty eclectic.

      Thanks, Ted,
      I have bookmarked the site. I love community radio. My favorite is from Provincetown, WOMR.org.

      On a previous blog entry light was my theme for all four songs. Other than Christmas, every day has a theme for me. I hunt for a long time sometimes.

      This does stay in your head!

        I’m listening to the Maine Public classical station right now. All Hanukkah music. They even had Leonard Nimoy narrating a story.

        I looked at WOMR’s schedule. Probably a lot of overlap with WERU, I see Democracy Now and Alternative Radio there. And you have a Grateful Dead hour! We have a Bob Dylan hour, Friday mornings. The host was a roadie with Dylan back in the day, and plays a lot of out-takes and bootleg stuff instead of the versions we’re used to.

        I am quite jealous of your Bob Dylan hour. I’ll have to listen on line. WOMR is so amazing local and uses amateurs, meaning someone just off the street, two reasons I love it. They often ask for new people and will give training. If it were closer, I might be tempted.

      • Ted Says:

        WERU gives training too and is all-volunteer except for the few people running the place. They will take anybody off the street, almost. It started in 1988, my wife got on with a jazz/blues host for a bit as a guest and then took the training. She has been doing this for most of those years. Took a little time off with the birth of our third daughter. She really loves hosting jazz, usually every other week, but with fundraising it comes to more than that. And she loves the on-air fundraising. You would be a natural.

      • katry Says:

        I actually gave some thought to volunteering, but P-town is a bit away from me for driving. I think I would enjoy hosting a program, maybe something eclectic.

  3. Ted Says:

    I think all shows are archived for at least a week, so if you wanted to hear Highway 61 – The Dylan Hour you could tune in at a more convenient time. Currently it’s 9am Fridays.

    • katry Says:

      I definitely would listen to the archived program. 9am is a bit early. I am a night owl.
