It's a brand new week!

Shavua Tov everybody -- It's a brand new week!
I mean, it's already Yom Sheni - where does the time go?
It's post Shavuos - and hopefully we're still charged up from our Har Sinai experiences - I'm sure that although the nation stood united at the mountain, everyone had their own experience. Isn't that the way it was with Shlomo - he could speak to a hundred people, but afterwards, each one felt he had just been spoken to alone. You know, we can all have our private conversations with the Ribono Shel Olam, but we don't live with just Hashem alone -- like the Rebbes teach us, without each other, the picture (Hashem's picture in this world -kaviyachol) would be incomplete. Where would we be without each other?
Which begs the question - how do we talk to each other? I mean, how I talk to Hakadosh Baruch Hu is important, but it's really between me and G-d, right? but how I talk to you? now that's between me and you... something else, right?
Here at Radio Free Nachlaot, we let the music talk to you (and occassionally we speak as well) -
We want to thank you for listening, and encourage you to keep listening - cause we aint gonna shut up any day soon!!!!

Today's Israeli Soul program will feature music by and not limited to: The Moshav Band, Yankele Shemesh, Shlomo Carlebach, Moshe Shur and Sons, Beit Habubot --
(I know, it's the male singers today -- hang in there, tomorrow IY"H we'll bring on the women)
Torah for today will be:
2:00 PM - Rabbi David Aron - part 3 of his series entitled: "Seeing G-d"
4:00 PM - Torah from Rabbi Betzalel Edwards

And then, after 6:00 we'll hear some Ethiopian Jazz, some John Coltrane to be followed by our regular (irregular) mix of rock and rhythm, electric and accoustic, folk, jazz and blues - did I leave anything out? Techno?? Well, you'll just have to let us know!
We will post the schedule, as it develops - so, please stay tuned.

7:00 PM - Dave Herman on WNEW-FM used to call this "Bruce Juice" -- well, we've got an hour of "Bruce Juice" to get our evening going - Yea Bruce!


And yes, of course we remember that today is Bob Dylan's birthday! (thanks to Harvey and Lorelai) - so, in honor of Bob Dylan's Birthday - not only will we be playing Bob Dylan music throughout the night, but at 9:00 PM we will present - Bob Dylan and Bette Midler - a recording of a recording session - It's "live" and un-edited, and not only gives us a peek at Bob at work, but is a lot of fun!

So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Mr. Dylan! My goodness how many songs you've written, and how many cover versions there are -- the list goes on and on and on --
Please, don't blame us if we can't cover them all, but we will try our best - as always - right here on Radio Free Nachlaot!

(btw - you can facebook your favorite Dylan songs to us - you never can tell what we might play!)

Ok - the decision is in:
11:00 PM - 30th Anniversary show from Madison Square Garden. BOBFEST, as Neil Young called - Live and in living color - right here on Radio Free Nachlaot.
Happy Birthday Mr. Dylan!
