The books called יחוה דעת were authored by Rabbi Ovadya Yosef. In the title page, it states that these books are essentially transcriptions of a radio show called פניני הלכה, with small additions. Are these radio shows available for listening? I’ve been unsuccessful in finding them thus far.

  • I would totally go for that too! Great question! – Shalom Jun 6 '19 at 1:28

    I doubt they are, or even will become, available. If you haven't done so yet, you could try contacting Kol Yisrael, who aired the radio programs, or the Israeli Chief Rabbinate, as he was the Sephardi Chief Rabbi at the time. It may also be worth baring in mind that these radio shows were broadcast on Israeli Radio in the 70s and 80s. It may take a lot of effort, on the technical side, making them available to the public (assuming usable recordings even exist). – Tamir Evan Aug 23 '19 at 8:14
  • @TamirEvan Thank you. I haven’t really put much thought thus far into the practicality of this question. I had more assumed that it is already out there because of the significance, and it would just take the right person to view this posting. However, you comment may be very valid indeed. – Dr. Shmuel Aug 23 '19 at 13:27
  • Bonus points for demonstrating one of the pages in the book spoken in the original. – Dr. Shmuel May 24 at 22:38

The Shiurim from Rabbi Ovadia Yosef were from פינת ההלכה that were played on 'רשת א of רדיו קול ישראל. Although to the best of my knowledge I am not aware of all the Shiurim being available, you can obtain many Shiurim from Rabbi Ovadia Yosef on Halachic issues at this link.
