Brainwaves – April 11, 2017 – A show you don’t want to “pass over”

Brainwaves iconThis week’s Brainwaves is one you definitely don’t want to “pass over.” That’s because every song on the show has to do with this week’s Jewish holiday of Passover.  You’ll hear songs about Egypt, Pharaohs, slaves, princes, Israelites, snakes, frogs, hail, blood, bread, the desert and even a song about Moses. With bands including Neko Case, Morrissey, Oingo Boingo, Weezer, The Cure, Blitzen Trapper, Kishi Bashi and more.

Visit the Brainwaves page on andHow.FM for times to listen live or on-demand.
