    From the 1930s to '50s, Yiddish radio was popular from coast to coast. By 1985, it was all but forgotten. Then musician and historian Henry Sapoznik discovered a few dozen acetate-coated aluminum discs at a rummage sale.

    "Who Cares?"
    Overall

    Scott Simon, as any NPR listener knows, is an intelligent, articulate guy. Unfortunately, he apparently fails to realize that almost no one cares about Yiddish Radio. I, and I'm confident, many other listeners tuned out this program when it ran on NPR. Public radio content should be eclectic, but should meet some standard for potential listener interest. New York is not the whole world despite the confusion of many New Yorkers.
