The Yiddishe Cup Klezmer Band talks about Ashkenazi culture and its continuing impact on the Jewish community. Plus a little about their "rebbe" comedian Mickey Katz, Harvey Pekar and the history of Cleveland, Ohio. Tune in for a mix of "meshugeneh mambo" and some serious klezmer talent. Plus Don Byron, and a classic 1950's ode to the Stare of Israel by Benny Bell.
