The Country Yossi Show 20121126


It's almost December and that means it's almost time for Heshy's birthday. And that means it's time for Country Yossi to crack wise about getting older.

Next we enjoyed some Country Yossi music: "Elan Elan."

And one good song deserves another, so we also heard Kivi and Tuki's "Who is He?"
Dov Shurin checked in with the latest news from Israel, and Grand Prizes were flying out the door like generators after Hurricane Sandy!

And speaking of Sandy, our thoughts go out to the residents of Far Rockaway who recently got their power back, meaning they're no longer immune from the weekly agony of The Country Yossi Show.

By the way, the release of the Chanukah issue of Country Yossi Family Magazine is so close you can taste it. Come to think of it, that might be better than actually reading it!

Join us next week, when we'll almost definitely be coming apart.

Tonight, Heshy "The Wonder Child" Walfish shared some of his post-Sandy storm tsores. Then Country Yossi shared some musings on music and more miscellany.

We took a break for a little Country Yossi music: "Elokai Neshama," performed by reknowned MBC soloist Simcha Koch, from Kivi and Tuki's Greatest Hits.

Then we heard all about this Saturday night's Friends For ALS Benefit Concert Featuring 8th Day.


And Dov Shurin checked in with the latest news from Israel. Not to mention the crowning of some Grand Prize Winners!

The final touches are being put on the Chanukah issue of Country Yossi Family Magazine. If you'd like to be a part of it, call 718 851-2010.

See you next week!

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Heshy "The Wonder Child" Walsfish was rendered completely speechless. Not! Nothing could be further from the truth! In fact, Heshy was ranting like it was going out of style, touching on such hot topics as the Hurricane response, the election results and government in general. Sit back and listen to the sparks fly.

Eventually, Country Yossi was able to get a word in edgewise and proceeded to launch into an endurance test of doctor jokes. Can you survive the assault?

Looking for the perfect Chanukah gift? Country Yossi has the perfect suggestion: the new book from noted author Barcha Goetz, and master artist Yeshaya Suval:
Then it was time for a little Country Yossi music:"The Rabbi."

Then, before we had a chance to busy-out the phones, Dov Shurin called in with the latest news from Israel.

Up next: Rosh Chodesh Bentsching with Yossi's father, Chaim Toiv, who's currently resting comfortably in Maimonides Medical Center. Please keep him in your thoughts. 

Finally, Heshy chimed in with his Chanukah gift suggestion: The new CD from Moshe Dovid Weissman:

We got to hear the first cut, the very catchy "Mikdash Melech."
Now, what's the only thing we have left to do....? Oh, right! Take your phone calls! Sorry, the show was so action packed, there was no time for such frivolity. Better luck next week, eh?

After the Storm of the Century, it's a totally unplugged version of The Country Yossi Show as Country Yossi phoned it in even more than usual. And the gas shortage kept Heshy at home  listening from the sidelines.

In tonight's special pre-Election Day episode, Yossi was joined by Senator David Storobin to discuss his re-election campaign. Country Yossi reminds you to Vote Early and Vote Often!

We heard a little Country Yossi Music in the form of  "Mitzvah Dance."

And of course we had a generous dose of your phone calls, and a smattering of grand prize winners!

Look out for the November issue of Country Yossi Family Magazine which incredibly hit the street as scheduled last Friday despite hurricane,  flooding, gas shortage, and black-outs!

What will next week's show sound like? Who can tell? You'll have to tune in to find out!
