Adam Sandler's certainly not the only one with a Chanukah-themed song that can make listeners laugh. Fans of the beloved Prairie Home Companion radio program will recognize this piece and smile. Lehrer takes you through the Jewish year and around the country with some very clever lyrics - did you realize that “Shavuos” rhymes with “East St. Louis?” - and the type of arrangement we've come to expect from Joshua Jacobson does not disappoint. A sure-fire winner.
