Black Coffee, Anyone?

Well it's a big day for musical birthdays but let's not forget Miss Peggy Lee, American Jazz Singer extraordinaire whose 90th birthday would have been today.

Who can imagined the multi-faceted singer/songwriter/actress/poet at 90? She performed almost until the end of her life, even in a wheel chair, spanning passion, poignancy and power all in one smoky-smooth breath. We're featuring Peggy Lee's "Black Coffee" tonight at 8pm Jerusalem Time - a real treat for our listeners.

Yes it's also the birthdays of Stevie Nicks, Levon Helm, Astronaut Sally Ride (well, that's an easy enough musical fix, how many hundreds of versions of "Ride Sally Ride" do we have in our Radio Free Nachlaot musical library?).

We try to keep things relevant around here, but one man's relevancy is another man's segue into a long, meandering musical set that seems to be going somewhere and suddenly - yes, you've arrived. You're in the Happy Zone with Radio Free Nachlaot. We're not afraid to play the music. Don't be afraid to listen.
