Today's program will feature 4 Israeli folk melody instrumental selections by the Kol Yisrael Radio Orchestra conducted by Moshe Wilensky:

1) Im Hashahar, At Dawn, is very spirited.

1:18 - 6:64* 2) El Ginat Egoz, To The Nut Garden, is a languorous melody. *

3) Erev Shel Shoshanim, Evening Of Roses, is gentle in its flowing sound. 7:25 - 12:48*

4) Mizareh Yisrael, The Disburser Of Israel, is a very exciting song.*
