Yiddish Radio Project

All that survives from the “golden age” of Yiddish radio in the 1930s to ’50s are a thousand fragile discs, rescued from storerooms, attics, and even dumpsters. But what a story they tell! The Yiddish Radio Project is a celebration of these recordings and of the forgotten geniuses and dreamers who created them. The exhibits on this site feature the Yiddish Radio Project radio documentaries that were first broadcast on NPR’s “All Things Considered,” rare Yiddish radio clips, archival photographs, and various ephemera from a forgotten radio universe.
