Rockiah Band Rocks out Jewishly

Interview with Yehuda David of Rockiah, a rock band from Beit Shemesh that combines power pop rock with Tehillim and other Jewish lyrics. Yehuda talks about how he ended up getting into Judaism, making aliyah, why you can still rock at age 40 and the time he got a tomato thrown at him at a rock show in Tel Aviv.

Plus, great new tracks from Ehud Banai, David D'or and Patric Sabag, Amir Benayoun, and Astrix.
