A rebroadcast of our Jan 16 2011 show on Jews and Metal, with a tribute to the cult rock doc Anvil. Host Jenny Romaine talks with violinist and composer Alicia Svigals and with freelance journalist Mike Rubin.  Svigals, a founder of the Klezmatics and of the all-women band Mikveh, is considered by many to be the world's foremost klezmer fiddler. Rubin writes about music for The New York Times, Tablet and other venues.

Here's the list of what we played today:

Ain't Talkin' 'Bout LoveVan Halen

Master Race RockThe Dictators

Hot Rails To Hell, Blue Oyster Cult

Sister RayThe Velvet Underground

Now I Wanna Be a Good BoyThe Ramones

HatikvahMarty Friedman

Avinu Malkenu (Our Father Our King), Mogwai

Correction:  We've since learned that the melody for Hatikvah is not by Grieg.  According to Wikipedia, it has been attributed to a Roumanian folk song, and to a 17th century Italian song.  Smetana
