Hukkin a Chainek with Steve Hirshon
Steve plays popular music from the 2nd half of the 20th century, and newer stuff, too; and speaks with guests on subjects of current interest.
On Thursday March 29, 2012 on the "Hukkin' A Chainek" program, Steve Hirschon interviewed jazz legend Ben Sidran about his new book: "There Was a Fire:Jews, Music and the American Dream." Steve and Sidran spoke about the historical, spiritual and cultural aspects of music and how Jewish immigrants had an outsized impact on American popular music.
Fascinating and thought provoking! WMPG is honored to have an artist of Sidran's caliber on our air.
