The Future Is Now

Praises to The Most High!  The first episode of Shir Bliss is going to be airing this Wednesday night (2.18.09) @ 1am on WGOT-LP 94.7 FM. Don’t go to bed.  Tune in instead.  You’ll be better off because of it.  I promise.

Ironically, an encore presentation of this first episode may be aired this Saturday (2.21.09) at 5pm.

Don’t get too complacent though, my gevaldik gainesvillians.  This is not going to be the regular time slot for the show.  Not exactly sure when yet, but plan on keeping your Monday nights open.  Or plan on engaging in some activity that lends itself to listening to the radio.  Either way, Monday seems significant.

I’m madly in love with your light, chevra

I Lied

Shavua Tov my holy hipsters

In an ongoing effort to bring it to the people, I decided to let WordPress whore herself out to me and pay for her services.  But it was done for the sake of kedushah, to reveal just a little more light into the world, to aid in the global consciousness shift towards love and unity and Jewish music that you mamash feel down in the kishkes.

Thus, I give you the first episode of Shir Bliss.  Still not sure when it will be aired, and it may not sound anything like this once it makes it to the radio waves, but the music will all be the same, so the basic idea is still there.  Happy listening, chevra.

Praise The Name!  The first Shir Bliss has been uploaded.  I’ll let you know when it will be aired soon.  In the meantime, here is the playlist for the first show.  I was going to upload the first show in its entirety onto this post and then proceed to chastise you all for not supporting local radio and undermining the very idea of broadcast radio, but it appears as though WordPress wants to charge me to put my music on my webpage.  So I guess all of you who need your Jewish music fix will have to wait until the show airs.  Stay tuned and stay holy, chevre.

Good Shabbos Good Shabbos

This is the website of the soon-to-be radio program Shir Bliss on WGOT-LP 94.7 FM in Gainesville, FL.  Shir Bliss plays Jewish music that doesn’t suck. From happy hasidic jams to holy free jazz to cantorial death metal, we’ll give you the best in both new and old Jewish music. Shir Bliss strives to play music that lifts your soul and assaults your ears, or at the very least trys to convince you that klezmer music isn’t all that bad.

Stay tuned for show announcments, playlist uploads, and other shit that may be relevant to you purveyors of righteous religious rhythms.
