Spinnin' like a Dreidel

I'm off in a few minutes to do the usual radio gig, but since tonight is the start of Hanukkah, I thought I'd drop a little gift for those who celebrate and/or appreciate that Jewish tradition. Somehow I missed Songs in the Key of Hanukkah when it came out last year, but I'll be making up for lost time this season. It's a great album from Erran Baron Cohen (yes, the brother of Sasha "Borat" Baron Cohen).

As a little taste of the album, check out Orthodox Jewish rapper Y-Love's re-imagining of the traditional song "Dreidel."

For more on the album, see www.songsinthekeyofhanukkah.com -- or you can buy it at Amazon. (If you don't need the physical CD, you can download the whole schmear for just $1.99)

And here's the video:
