6:30 to 8:30 a.m., Sunday Simcha
Sunday Simcha has been on the air for almost 20 years and is the only Jewish music program in Maine and northern New England. It is one of only a handful of Jewish music radio shows in the United States and one of only a very few to feature modern, diverse, and cutting-edge recordings.
Sunday Simcha features:
* An eclectic blend of Jewish music from across the diaspora, including klezmer, Sephardic, ladino, traditional, sacred, folk, rock, classical, and jazz.
*News and announcements for the Southern Maine Jewish community
*Occasional Jewish humor

It is the most comprehesive collection of contemporary popular Jewish artists from the US and Israel ever put together. All sales of the CDs go to aid Israeli victims of terrorism. The CDs include an inspiring QuickTime movie as well as hours of music.For Individual sales click here. Cd's can be ordered for group fundraisers.
