What's All This Then

Why should I care what this guy has to say?

The correct answer is that you shouldn’t. We’re all entitled to our opinions. Develop your own. I try to be sane and rational, but that may change with the level of caffeine intake. I’m just telling my stories in the hopes they may amuse and/or inform others. And... I Confess... I'm showing off my bitchen collection a bit.

Having a Jewish Party vs. Having a Polish Party

It's Party Time.  Pick your ethnicity.   Whether you do the hora or the polka, there's a record for you!




Both of these records feature traditional music accompanied by party sounds.  I'm not sure why these were made.  If you were having an actual party you wouldn't want the party noises piped in, you'd want to make your own.

Perhaps it's a duck call to all of the same ethnicity to come in and join the party.  Say a Pole was walking down the street and heard polka music with lots of whoops and hollers.  Wouldn't he be curious and check it out?  Others may join the fun.  Poles may call their friends.  Pretty soon you're having a real Polish Party  - just by playing a record.

Same goes for the Jewish party.   Of course you'll put on a pot of coffee and have some noshes available.    

So whether you're sitting alone in a schmata drinking Manischewitz or wearing one of those colorful Polish vests drinking vodka - just put on one of these records and you'll soon find yourself surrounded by people ready to party.     Then you can take off the record.  You'll be all set.   

I don't remember where I got the Polish one.  The Jewish one has a sticker from Record Trader - a store that used to exist in Reseda, California.
