Two posts in a row, posted within 10 minutes of each other, that reference Yiddish. It's not coincidence, it's Shmetafilter!

I looked at the FPP title really quickly, thought it was "Yiddish song of The Whelk" and was like "Man, that guy's everywhere."

The bandleader of the Cleveland-based band Yiddishe Cup also has an entertaining and educational blog, although it's less purely music-focused.

There is occasionally even more in-depth discussion of the Yiddish Song of the Week posts on the fairly high-traffic Jewish Music Mailing List.
