Happy to discover this week that the syndicated public radio music show Upfront Soul added my song “Hanukkah Light” to their playlist for their Dec. 19 show, which is being broadcast this week on the program’s home station, WERU in Maine, and several other community radio stations around the US. You can tune in in your town, or listen to the program online through PRX.
Hanukkah starts on the late side this year (first candle Dec. 24), but it’s not too early to start thinking about Hanukkah music. You can hear my Hanukkah “carol” on Aaron Myers’ holiday album Snowing In Vegas. I created a video for the song this year to help spread the light. Enjoy!
Tonight we celebrated the first night of Hanukkah and the release of the holiday album I recorded with the superb Washington, DC vocalist Aaron Myers, “Snowing In Vegas.” While lighting the candles, we played my composition “Hanukkah Light” from the album, honoring the Hanukkah lights that warm our hearts and fight back the winter darkness.
I hope you enjoy our music throughout the holiday season and in every season.
Just in time for the holiday, here’s my musical tribute to Thanksgiving, which I had the joy of performing on Friday the 22nd with Barbara Papendorp and Russwin Francisco at my show at the Black Fox Lounge in Washington, DC. It’s called “Thanksgiving With Uncle Rob” in honor of my uncle by that name who is always so happy just to see the family get together.
