Shtetl on the Shortwave is Jewish radio out of Montreal. Usually quirky, sometimes irreverent, never nasty in tone. Tune in for great music and interviews with rock stars, rabbis, circus performers, politicians, filmmakers, cantors, and just your average Jo with an intriguing story to tell. There are few places on the airwaves where you can hang out with a drag king named Shabbosdic’ and moments later hear a live rendition of the Kol Nidre prayer. Jewish or not, Shtetl is your home for yiddishkeit with an edge. www.shtetlmontreal.com
