What Do You Want From Life?

What do you want from life ... ??? How about more peace, love, joy and happiness? That's what we'd like more of too , which brings us to our programming day here at Radio Free Nachlaot.

It's Tuesday, and we miss Maya. She's off on a whirlwind tour of record stores on other continents, and she's promised to come back with great new music to play on her usual Tuesday "Maya in the Morning" Show ... hurry back Maya! We can't wait to see what gems you've dug up!

We had a classic episode of Lorelai's "Morning Dew" Show this morning (you had to be there, we really can't explain in mere words what that was like but suffice to say if you started out in a bad mood you didn't end up that way. "Guaranteed to Change Your Head!").

Today on "Israeli Soul Afternoon" we're featuring:

  • 1pm: Rabbi Chaim Richman on Parsha Chayai Sarah
  • 2pm: Moshe Newman on Shlomo Carlebach
  • 3pm: "Light Unto the Nations: For He Desires Kindness"
  • 5pm: Our interview with Mindy Ribner

Interspersed between all this great Torah is music from Moshe Newman ("Hareni Mikasher Atzmi"), Noah Lublin ("Leaving Egypt"), RebbeSoul ("From Another World") and Shoshanna Piano ("Gifts From Heaven.")

At 6pm we'll hear the ultimate diva, Barbra Streisand and the Motion Picture Soundtrack to the classic "Funny Girl." Seriously, it's really great. You'll find yourself singing along!

7pm: HOMEGROWN HOUR!!! We've chosen new music from JudaBlue and Jimmy (Ya'akov Yisrael) Costello.  We'll hear selections from JudaBlue's "Forty Days" and Jimmy Costello's newest recording, "Going Up (Maalim b'Kodesh").  We think you're going to like what you hear - a LOT!

At 8pm we're counterbalancing yesterday's CSNY concert with their solo work. Between 8pm - 11:30pm we'll hear David Crosby's "It's All Coming Back To Me Now," Stephen Stills 2005 release "Man Alive," Graham Nash's "Wild Tales" and Neil Young's "After the Goldrush."

Which brings us to 11:30pm - our normal time to hear Grateful Dead or Dead-related music ... so in the spirit of what we've been listening to so far - ladies and gentlemen: The Planet Earth Rock & Roll Orchestra - the P.E.R.R.O Sessions.

Really, that's a lot of great music. What more do you want from life? More love, joy, peace and happiness? Or a baby's arm holding an apple? You decide.
