Ladies Day - and Night - on Radio Free Nachlaot


Today would have been Janis Joplin's 67th Birthday ...which for some reason is astonishingly hard to fathom (although it isn't hard to imagine her as a hard-cord Cougar in this day and age). The mind boggles to realize Janis was only 27 when she died of a heroin overdose in 1970, leaving behind a legacy of passion-fueled music, unfulfilled emotional yearning and estrogen-inspired angst which has inspired singers from Stevie Nicks to Chrissie Hynde and everybody in-between.
In honor of Janis we're dedicating our musical lineup today to The Ladies -
Lorelai's "Morning Dew for the Morning Dew" show is a tribute to Janis, with other artists interspersed & getting off on occasional tangential musical paths - but all roads lead to Janis (listen for the common themes within the set list).
"Israeli Soul" from 1pm - 6pm is for women! Meirah Miriam Bet- Dovid and The Gan Eden Project, Neshama Carlebach, "High Windows," Nomi Teplow, Ofra Haza and more! We'll be featuring Rena Richman's Torahs on "Rachel and Leah" (Parts 1 & 2) as well as her Torah on "Dina, Daughter of Jacob and Leah" to round out the female-centric afternoon programming.
6pm - Carole King "Tapestry"
7pm - Patti Smith "Horses" (not for the faint-hearted or delicate sensibilities!)
8pm - Joni Mitchell's 1972 Live at Carnegie Hall Concert, followed by James Taylor & Joni Mitchell Live at Radio City (1970). OK, James isn't a girl, but we'll let him play anyway.
Followed by -
Sinead O'Connor's The Lion and The Cobra
The Pretenders - Learning to Crawl and Last of the Independents
Yeah, it's a Kol Isha kind of day here at Radio Free Nachlaot. As Janis might have said: deal with it! :)
