THE KARAOKE CHANNEL

Israeli TV rocks!

For 13 shekels a month (chump change--this can't be right!), the 50,000 subscribers of The Karaoke Channel, who were already enjoying the sing-along goodness of classic Israeli songs, will now be treated to expanded choices for their Semitic warbling:

Hundreds of songs will be added, including contemporary classics and modern-day pop. Guy Karni, head of content for the channel, says the new additions - especially those of Spears and the like - are aimed at attracting teenagers to the station. More mature adults need not worry, though: the classic Hebrew Israeli songs will also continue to run.

Phew. I'm breathing a sigh of relief that "Yerushalayim Shel Zahav" is still safe, and now can be followed by a Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan tune. Just the way Israel's founders would have wanted it.
