will take two forms as a daytime service and as a nighttime service.Daytimes on the station are devoted primarily to Jewish Music, Local Weather, News from Israel, programming from the World Radio Network, and syndicated programs from other Public Radio stations.Nighttime takes on a different twist with a more secular general service.
