Question:

Thank you Rabbi for your help and kindness in answering my shailos.
It makes me happy and I derive some joy from listening to music and listening to talk (discussions, etc.),and also watching entertainment on the radio and via other media sources.
Am I permitted to do these things on Chol Hamoed?

Answer:

If it is being done for the enjoyment of yom tov, and there are no other prohibitions involved it is permitted
