Here is a second edition of the diverting and successful Jewish review, first broadcast in June last year. As before, music, artists, chorus will all be Jewish ; many of the words in Yiddish. But in case those who do not understand Yiddish might hesitate to tune in, let it be said that everything in Yiddish will be explained by the compere and everything will be understood. The central item will be a musical fantasy ' Day-Dreams ', written and composed by Joseph Halter , with interpolated items from the works of Saint-Saens and Anton Rubin stein. The most important item is the Epilogue, to which every Jew especially should make a point of listening. The title Almonds and Raisins is the name of a well-known traditional Jewish melody.
