Welcome back to another weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat! Our very special guest on the show this week is Geoff Berner, the celebrated klezmer radical and Vancouver’s own Whisky Rabbi. Geoff has a new album out now, called “We are going to Bremen to be Musicians” on Coax Records. We caught up with him on the phone from the west coast to talk about many things, including the recent Canadian election, the slow and painful deaths of Stephen Harper and Ariel Sharon, the history of klezmer music, and much more. Enjoy, dance, and celebrate!

Also, we’re in the midst of our ANNUAL FUNDING DRIVE at CKUT radio. This is the one time of year where we turn to you, our listeners, to support all the amazing work we do at the station. None of our programmers get paid. All money goes to CKUT community radio. Pure love. If you are a subscriber to the podcast, or listen on the FM, please donate today. No amount is too big or too small.
