Put on Your Yarmulke, Here Comes Radio Chanukah!
Put on Your Yarmulke, Here Comes Radio Chanukah
http://www.xmradio.com/hanukkah /

December 6th, 2006 by Esther

Radio is impossible these days. Every station has become Christmas Central, with the occasional inclusion of an Adam Sandler song to keep the Jews from rebelling. What the world needs now is a whole week of Chanukah radio, with all of our Chanukah songs in heavy rotation.

According to the JTA, were lucky enough to be getting a Chanukah radio station of our very own on XM Satellite Radio: Focus will be on the holidays music and traditions, and featuring the musical (and non-musical) stylings of Jewish celebrities and politicians, including Barenaked Ladies, Matisyahu, Al Franken, Kinky Friedman, U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), Neil Sedaka and Dr. Ruth Westheimer.

The normal free trial of XM Radio Online lasts only 3 days, but miraculously we have been able to extend it to cover all eight days of Radio Hanukkah.

Here's a hint for those who've forgotten the special promo code. It is the title of a famous Chaim Potok book about two friends Danny and Reuven. Take the two-word title of the book and enter it as one word as the special Radio Hanukkah promo code.

1. E mail I sent to XM Radio thanking
them for Radio Hanukkah

"Thanks for offering Radio Hanukkah during the eight days of Hanukkah! Please take this as an opportunity to offer an entire channel dedicated to Jewish music and culture. This channel would compliment the four Christian themed channels already offered by XM."

I loved those books when I was a teen, many years ago.

8. What would an atheist music station play?
John Lennon's "Imagine" over and over? ;)

Seriously, are there a lot of atheist songs out there?

9. No songs with a deity mentioned in it. Maybe a lot of Monk and
Miles Davis. Or Cleo Laine or Tony Bennett.

7. Be careful
The fundies would likely claim that every week during the months of Jan-November are "atheists weeks". :eyes:

10. Naw, there's god mentioned in tons of songs, so that would debunk
that claim. Any song that has "pray" in it would be out.
