Season 2 Debuts: "IT'S ALIVE! IT'S ALIVE!"

We're celebrating life "Big Time" here at Radio Free Nachlaot this morning! Lorelai's got the reigns of this wild horse & we're galloping at full speed towards ... the river? Did I just hear Talking Heads singing "Take Me To The River?"

Yes you did, and so did all our listeners - we're baaaaaaaaaaack with music, music, music this morning on the very first "Morning Dew" Show of Season 2.

But of course, that's not all - far from it! Our New and Improved Format started yesterday afternoon with our Live Kick-Off during which we announced the upcoming 9 DAYS OF JERRY Event which we'll be talking about more soon - suffice to say that from August 1st (Jerry's Birthday) to August 9th (the anniversary of his death) we're going to pull out ALL the stops and give you a Jerry-Fest like you've never, EVER had before! Stay tuned for more details in coming days!

But what about today? But what about the rule that says never start a sentence with the word "but" and yet we've done it twice already? We're a little giddy now that Tisha B'Av is well behind us and we can turn our attentions to other things - like being happy.

Of course when I write "we" I mean at this point ME (Lorelai), because Steve is experiencing a little lag time - the Shloshim for his brother Seth ends on Shabbos Nachamu. He's still a little subdued - although the joy at being able to go back to music yesterday was quite palpable - he's still not giving it 100%, he's holding back a bit - but you just WAIT people, wait until Steve feels free to give it all he has - then you'll find out what Rockin' the Free World is really all about.

Today's Radio Free Nachlaot Schedule:

9am - 11:45am - "Morning Dew for the Morning Jew" - Lorelai's Eclectic Morning Mix of Songs features a tribute to Birthday Boy Rick Lieberman (Lori's father - yes, Lori is Lorelai and also Chaya Yocheved, that's a whole other stories of multiple identities gone wild) and you'll hear some Frank Sinatra l'kavod Dad's 79th Birthday, along with Bruce Springsteen, Melissa Etheridge, Blanket Statementstein, Sublime, Cowboy Junkies, Talking Heads, Steven Earle, Joni Mitchell, The Spin Doctors, Stevie Wonder, Ani DiFranco, Amy Winehouse, Simon & Garfunkle, The Byrds, the Grateful Dead and more.
