Abstract: The Prepare the Way Radio Broadcast is believed to be the first Cleveland, Ohio, Jewish content non-commercial weekly radio program. The first program aired on station WJW AM-FM in 1965, following an offer for airtime by that station's program director, Bruce McDonald, to Rabbi Daniel Litt of Beth Israel-West Temple. Weekly program content generally consisted of music provided by local musicians, cantors, and synagogue choral groups; literary reviews; poetry; dramatic readings; interviews; summaries of international, national, and local Jewish news; and announcements of community events. The final program aired in 1969. The collection consists of a list of contents of each broadcast, news releases, and a program history. The list of broadcast contents and participants indexes the audiotapes of the broadcasts.
