The Joys of Yiddish
Radio 4

Michael Fenton Stevens and Kerry Shale presented this Late Night Opening series themed around the ethnic Jewish language, mixing sketches, traditional jokes and light-hearted language discussion, and described as “a selection of linguistic bridge roles, garnished with stories, anecdotes, epigrams and Talmudic quotations”.  The script, by Jeremy Front, was based on Leo Roston’s book of the same name.
