“Sunday Simcha”

Gail Wartell and Michael Atleson are alternate hosts of “Sunday Simcha,” a fifteen-year-old Jewish music program airing every Sunday morning from 6:30 to 8:30 am on WMPG, Greater Portland Community Radio, 90.9 and 104.1 FM, also streaming live at www.wmpg.org. Gail has been a host of the program for about 7 years. The program features an eclectic blend of Jewish music from across the diaspora, including traditional, sacred, Sephardic, Eastern European, folk, rock, and “cutting edge” jazz and klezmer. They also provide news and announcements for the Maine Jewish community and occasionally mix in a dose of Jewish humor. Gail and Michael can be reached at WMPG-FM, 96 Falmouth Street, Box 9300, Portland, ME 04104-9300, or you may contact Michael via e-mail at michael.kate@rcn.com.
