American Jewish music began to change radically and regularly in the early 1960s – crossing genres, eras and borders. Join radio host, journalist and cultural programmer Andy Muchin for an audio tour through the ever-diversifying American Jewkbox, featuring recordings, anecdotes and analysis of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, Debbie Friedman and their minyans; the klezmer revival; Radical Jewish Culture; the Sephardic resurgence; singer-songwriters including Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Kinky Friedman, Basya Schechter, Matisyahu and Alicia Jo Rabins; the Grammy-winning Klezmatics; and the rising stars of the American Jewish music scene. Spoiler alert: the Bay Area features prominently in this story.
