Country in the Country 20140810

August 10, 2014

It's the penultimate Country in the Country show, and tonight Country Yossi welcomed back the music in a big way now that Shabbos Nachamu has come and gone, but not before we give you this important reminder:

You're invited to honor the volunteers who are improving communities throughout Sullivan County at the 2014 Sullivan Renaissance Awards Ceremony tomorrow, Monday, August 11. The event is being held in the Events Gallery at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. with light refreshments; the program begins at 6:45 p.m.

The Awards Ceremony will recognize all of this year’s projects and award additional grants between $1000 and $25,000 to those judged the most successful in completing their beautification efforts. The winner of the contest for seasonal communities will receive Community Mitzvah Awards of $10,000, $5000 and $3000. Country Yossi will announce the Community Mitzvah Award winners on our last show of the summer next Sunday night.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation. Sponsors include Bold Gold Media Group/Thunder 102, FisherMears Associates, Kristt Company, Robert Green Dealerships, Sullivan County Democrat, The River Reporter, Thompson Sanitation, and WSUL/WVOS.

Out first hour featured a plethora of Country Yossi music interspersed with phone calls. We heard: "Seven Little Kids," "Hello Mameh," "Nebich of the Shteeble" and "Phantom of the Shteeble."
And the ever-popular "Kurrybone."
In hour two, a special request from your humble podcaster (who wrote the lyrics,) "Is This the Way to Monticello" by Marc Hoffman and the Bungaloafers. Listen to it right here and download it for free by clicking the song title below: 

Then some more Country Yossi and the Shteeble-Hoppers music: "Tick Tock."
And from Country Yossi's latest album with The Shteeble-Hoppers, "I'm Proud to be a Part of Am Yisroel" and later in the show, "Elan Elan."
Our broadcast would not be complete without a visit from Rabbi Moshe Meir Weiss and his gevaldigeh divrei Torah.
After that, a final sprint of quickie calls before we called it quits. And you called it a miracle.

Join us next week for one more summer show, if you can stand it.
