 The Sunday Simcha runs the gamut in Jewish entertainment and information: music, local announcements, weekly Dvar Torah, interviews, and the occasional political rant. The audience has grown over the years and includes many non-Jews as well. The music is an eclectic mix, including Klezmer, Chassidic, Israeli, Yiddish, Ladino, Mizrachi, and contemporary. The show is hosted by Kevin Frye and Shlomo Schwersky.

Rabbi Sholom Adler delivers a D’var Torah each Sunday at about 12:45. Rabbi Adler is spiritual leader at Chabad – Young Israel of Pinellas County.

News affecting the Jewish community and Israel is heard at 1:00pm.
