One Love, People Get Ready - for Yom Yerushalyim!

The Hebrew Day starts at Sunset, while the rest of the World calculates the beginning of the day from Midnight. So - there's an overlap - sometimes the connections are meaningful as we find ourselves "today" (May 11th) commemorating the Yartzeit of Bob Marley, and also "today" (which will be 28 Iyar at Sunset this evening) is Yom Yerushalyim - Jerusalem Day, the day we celebrate the liberation of East Jerusalem and the Temple Mount and the reunification of the City of Jerusalem - the Eternal Capitol of Israel.

It's almost like shooting ducks in a barrel, isn't it - a little too easy to draw parallels between the celebration of Bob Marley's life and the liberation he brought to music and people World-wide, and the liberation of Jerusalem during the 1967 "6-Day War." Still, we don't believe in Calendar Coincidences - and we're celebrating both events and more right here on Radio Free Nachlaot.

Tonight at 6pm Jerusalem Time we're playing Yishai Fleisher's "Kumah" CD followed by a set by The Spin Doctors (Chris Barron is in Jerusalem even as we speak and we're hoping to have an interview with him a little later - he's performing tonight in Gan Sacher) and our own local Internationally-known band, HaDag Nahash. Starting around 9pm Jerusalem Time we'll hear a LOT of Bob Marley. So stay tuned!
