A forgotten segment of the age of radio in America has been found by diligent searching in attics and basements. Enough of the collection has been restored to offer some of the stars of Yiddish radio programs to our ears again. Scott Simon of National Public Radio is the host of the two- hour disc, and some of the translations are read by Carl Reiner and Eli Wallach. For the listener who remembers the era from the 30s to the 50s, it is a nostalgic trip back. For the younger listener (younger than 50), it is a history lesson in the possibilities of communication in the America that was considered the melting pot of scores of diverse cultures.
