Too Hot To Handle

Hamseen - hot stifling weather - used to be in the days of the Ottoman Empire that murders committed during Hamseen weather were downgraded from murder to involuntary manslaughter (or at least the Ottoman Empire version of such a thing) because everyone knows this weather makes you CRAZY. Stay with us on Radio Free Nachlaot while we try to stay cool and sane.

Lena Horne  - singer, actress, Civil Rights Activist, 8 time Grammy Award Winner and vocalist extraordinaire, passed from this world this morning. We're hearing some Lena classics on "Morning Dew for the Morning Jew" this morning. Did you know Lena's second husband, musical arranger Lennie Hayton was Jewish? Theirs was truly a "Mixed Marriage" during a time in American history when it wasn't so commonplace for a woman of color to be married to a "white" man - let alone a Jewish man. Her daughter Gail married Jewish screenwriter and director Sidney Lumet, keeping it all in the family. No one sings "Stormy Weather" like Lena - we'll miss her beauty and spirit.

It's also the birthday of U2 Frontman BONO, prompting us to play "The Joshua Tree" in it's entirety today - always a pleasure to hear.
