The Yale Whiffenpoofs

We hear the sounds of Yale University's 100-plus year old a cappella group the "Whiffenpoofs." Four "Whiffs" join us to talk about their musical stylings and how they turn pop songs and classics into a cappella gold. We also discuss the rich tradition behind a cappella at Yale and how that tradition has come do define a way of life at the school.

Guests:
Sam Hafer, World Tour Manager
Michael Lavigne, Business Manager
Jerry Lieblish, Emcee (known as the Ham in the Whiffs)
Keiji Ishiguri, Pitch-pipe

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
