Tell Us A Tale Tunes

5 December 2010

Theme: Chanukkah

We celebrated the Jewish Festival of Lights this week, and played almost only live tunes.  But we also snuck in a few commercial recordings, including one from Woody Guthrie.  You can listen to the stories and live tunes in streaming RealAudio®.
