Asher & Miriam sing along

Yeah, it’s Who Better Than Me by Phil Collins with the Turk and Tarzan names changed but it covers just about any two closely aged siblings IMHO:

Miriam
You’re one of a kind, I can’t explain it.
You’re kind of cool, in a wonderful way.
Though you’re weird, you can make it.
And who better than me to teach you.
Who better then me to set you on your way. (Mhm)

This could take some hangin’ in there
Though with persuasion I can take you on up
Make you grow up, beside the others
And who better than me to lead you
Who better than me to take you all the way (Hey hey hey yeah)

Asher & Miriam
Struggling along for years and years

Miriam
Until I came along for you
Now its all comin’ together

Asher & Miriam
And together will see this through
You for me and me for you


Asher
I can learn, I can listen
I know there’s something
Deep inside but
I need assistance to go the distance

Miriam
And who better than me

Asher
To teach me

Miriam
Who better than me

Asher
To tell me all you know

Miriam

Who better than me

Asher
You reach me

Miriam
Who better than me

Asher & Miriam
To show them all we know!

Can’t find a working RSS feed for the “Too Jewish with Rabbi Cohon” podcast? Here is a working RSS feed that is updated every Monday morning!

A long time ago when I used iTunes on my WinXP laptop I was able to subscribe to the Too Jewish with Rabbi Sam Cohon & Friends podcast through the iTunes Store.  Since my main desktop runs Ubuntu Linux 9.04 and the RhythmBox Music Player is unable to retrieve podcast from the iTunes Store, I was at a loss as to how to listen to the podcast.

I sent numerous emails to the webmasters at toojewishradio@yahoo.com requesting a RSS feed of the podcast to no avail.  So… I wrote a small Perl application to create two RSS feeds:

  • All Episodes
  • Last 10 Episodes

Please note that I’m only generating and hosting the RSS feeds and NOT the podcast files.  The podcast is a product of Temple Emanu-El.
Update: The source code is available at  Source code for scraping the website of Too Jewish Radio program to create two RSS feeds (audio podcast)
