Last night Steve and Lorelai had their special guest, Oneg Shemesh in-studio and received much nachas and simcha, especially from the audience response, much of which went along the lines of: "It was just like hanging out with you guys in your living room!" That's EXACTLY what we're going for here at RFN, that "hanging out with us at home" kind of feeling. When people ask what's our format / genre we like to say, "It's just us, playing radio & making you feel like you're right here with us at home." Welcome Home to Radio Free Nachlaot. Take off your shoes, make yourself comfortable ... may I get you something to drink?
Today's Rainy Monday Schedule begins with Lorelai's "Stormy Monday" edition of "Morning Dew for the Morning Jew" Show.

Oneg Shemesh joins Steve & Lorelai tonight on "Sunday Night Live" - Gevalt!
The Show starts around 8:30pm-ish tonight (Sunday), Jerusalem Time, of course!
Oneg Shemesh grew up in Israel on Moshav Mevo Modiim founded by the late Rebbe Shlomo Carlebach, Z”L. He had the great privilege of spending much time with the Rebbe, accompanying him on guitar and drawing from his wealth of knowledge. After fin...ishing his army career, Oneg joined The Moshav Band and toured with them throughout Israel, the United States and Canada. He presently lives in New York and has been performing concerts wherever Jews are found, bringing joy and happiness to communities around the world while trying to live up to his name ONEG which means utmost joy.
"“The music is not just a melody with words, my music is prayer. Our sages teach us that singing the words is like praying twice; the first time for the words themselves, and the second time for the song. This is the highest form of prayer. I hope that my music finds you wherever you are and reminds you how beautiful is our Judaism, how beautiful is our tradition, and how beautiful is our love for Hashem.” - Oneg Shemesh
