Ten years (and a bit) ago, we were visited by our own patron saint klezmer rebel Geoff Berner for episode 145 of our weekly radio program, as part of the promotions for our annual festival.  (It’s coming up this year also, but not for a couple months yet, so stay tuned for further details!)  At its original online home, it accumulated some 9540 listens, and we hope that current and future generations continue enjoying listening to it courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
