Shlomo and Jerry - A Soul Connection!

The Mystical Connection between Rav Shlomo Carlebach zt"l and Jerry Garcia zt"l ("The Marinener Rebbe") is a topic often under discussion between Steve and Lorelai as they contemplate the karmic connectivity between two of the most important influences upon the musical and spiritual lives of Jewish Deadheads. Tonight on "Sunday Night Live" we'll be joined by Uber-Deadhead Harvey Milstein who will join our ongoing discussion and offer insights into what made Jerry part of our collective soul. Tune in, Turn on and Drop in to Radio Free Nachlaot tonight after 8:30pm-ish to listen - you just may learn something new!

Wednesday's Child is full of Woe, at least Lorelai was this morning during her "Wildcard Wednesday" All-Request segment of "Morning Dew for the Morning Jew." A regular listener requested Gospel music, a Facebook discussion ensued, Lorelai played The Staples Singers "O Happy Day" and ... the entire broadcasting software system CRASHED, the stream was disconnected and listeners were left listening to ..

Stormy Monday Redux


So we are now in possession of the ENTIRE, complete official "bootleg" version of WOODSTOCK. Yes, the whole thing. No, we're not going to play the whole thing all at once - at least not yet. However we will be playing a nice chunk of it this evening on Radio Free Nachlaot!

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. Rain songs, love songs, Blues Brothers songs (l'kavod what would have been John Belushi's 61st birthday today - OY!), around 12:30 we'll be hearing Steely Dan's "Can't Buy A Thrill" (or can we? :) )

Torah Schedule:
1pm - Rabbi Betzalel Phillip Edwards series of the Piasetzner Rebbe continues (replayed at 5:45pm as well)
3:30pm & 8pm - Parsha Shavua - B'Shelach - with Rabbi Chaim Richman
4:45pm - Rabbi Chaim Richman - "Should We Build The Holy Temple? Part 1"

Music Schedule:
1pm - 6pm "Israeli Soul" Afternoon with Oneg Shemesh, Ariel Elisha, and Kaveret (Poogy to you Old School folks)
6pm - Moroccan Music Monday. Very chillax "Betten Gav" music!
8pm - WOODSTOCK, BABY~! We're going to be playing Woodstock music from 8pm until about 2am, featuring Santana, Ritchie Havens, Sweetwater, Arlo Gutherie, Country Joe McDonald, The Incredible String Band, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, Sly & The Family Stone, The Who, Sha-Na-Na, Crosby Stills Nash & Young and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band.

Get Your Oneg On! Oneg Shemesh Tonight!


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

Cookin' For Shabbos


We're going to have WARM thoughts to go with our Shabbos Prep this week -- so get ready for some HOT MUSIC to put you in a real cookin' mood --
Shabbos is Coming everybody, and your weekly soundtrack is back - so get your work done, and RELAX!
Good Shabbos, Good Shabbos

Shine Your Everlovin' Orot All Over Us - Thursday's Child hasn't that far to go before Shabbos...



Thursday is The New Friday...
We celebrated Jackie Wilson's Yartzeit, Ritchie Havens' Birthday and other festive occasions this morning on Lorelai's "Morning Dew for the Morning Jew" show. Today is also Erev the Birthday of Lorelai's "Uncle Lizard" (a.k.a. The Grand & Glorious Lizardine Emperor) who is OLD, OLD, OLD today, so very anciently reptilian ... which accounts for the preponderance of Genesis songs this morning, with a heavy emphasis on The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. :)

We're sure you'll all agree that one of the drawbacks of Middle Age is the people you shared psychedelic experiences with in your youth don't want their children to know who they really are. We respect their privacy (under duress) :)

Radio Free Nachlaot is proud to present the debut of "HaOrot," the Poetic Lights of Rav Kook, performed by  Greg Wall’s Later Prophets Featuring Rabbi Itzchak Marmorstein. on today's "Israeli Soul" show. Not to be missed!

Almost Famous . . . Almost!


Some say "Almost Famous" (the 2000 Cameron Crowe movie starring Kate Hudson and Billy Crudup) was based on the band, Sweetwater. Urban legends notwithstanding, Radio Free Nachlaot is proud to present Sweetwater's 1968 eponymous album tonight!

Today's schedule has been heavily influenced by dreams of Mexican food, specifically - kosher fish tacos. We can dream - one day, it will happen, right here in Jerusalem. Maybe even tonight.

Lorelai (who in fact IS "Almost Famous," especially amongst those who actually know her!) continues her "Morning Dew for the Morning Jew" Show until 1pm. The theme is morning is a "combina" of Latin-influenced artists such as Santana, Afro-Cuban Allstars, Gypsy Kings, Paco deLucia and Cheech & Chong, combined with "Freedom"-themed songs (l'kavod Parshas Bo).

1pm - 6pm : "Israeli Soul" with David Dome, Benzion Eliyahu Lehrer, Beit Habubot, Knesiyat HaSechel, and Eyal Golan.

6pm : "Betten Gav" Chillaxation Show featuring George Harrison's "All Things Must Pass."

Ladies Day - and Night - on Radio Free Nachlaot


Today would have been Janis Joplin's 67th Birthday ...which for some reason is astonishingly hard to fathom (although it isn't hard to imagine her as a hard-cord Cougar in this day and age). The mind boggles to realize Janis was only 27 when she died of a heroin overdose in 1970, leaving behind a legacy of passion-fueled music, unfulfilled emotional yearning and estrogen-inspired angst which has inspired singers from Stevie Nicks to Chrissie Hynde and everybody in-between.
In honor of Janis we're dedicating our musical lineup today to The Ladies -
Lorelai's "Morning Dew for the Morning Dew" show is a tribute to Janis, with other artists interspersed & getting off on occasional tangential musical paths - but all roads lead to Janis (listen for the common themes within the set list).
"Israeli Soul" from 1pm - 6pm is for women! Meirah Miriam Bet- Dovid and The Gan Eden Project, Neshama Carlebach, "High Windows," Nomi Teplow, Ofra Haza and more! We'll be featuring Rena Richman's Torahs on "Rachel and Leah" (Parts 1 & 2) as well as her Torah on "Dina, Daughter of Jacob and Leah" to round out the female-centric afternoon programming.
6pm - Carole King "Tapestry"
7pm - Patti Smith "Horses" (not for the faint-hearted or delicate sensibilities!)
8pm - Joni Mitchell's 1972 Live at Carnegie Hall Concert, followed by James Taylor & Joni Mitchell Live at Radio City (1970). OK, James isn't a girl, but we'll let him play anyway.
Followed by -
Sinead O'Connor's The Lion and The Cobra
The Pretenders - Learning to Crawl and Last of the Independents
Yeah, it's a Kol Isha kind of day here at Radio Free Nachlaot. As Janis might have said: deal with it! :)

I See The Future and It Looks . . . Wet!


Rain is giving us "FuturVision" - our very own Ariel Elisha Leon Rosen, of whom it has been said, "Ariel Elisha is so talented that G_d had to hide him!" (Avraham Sand) will be featured on this afternoon's "Israeli Soul" program. Tonight at "Avram's Cafe" in Jerusalem (90 Yaffo at the Binyan Claal) Ariel Elisha and Matan Goldberg perform a Duo/Trio Night as Tom Waits - songs and stories - with special guest appearances not to be missed.

Rabbi Betzalel Phillip Edward's series on "The Chevrya" will air at 1pm and 5:45pm, and we'll also enjoy the music of Oneg Shemesh, Laura "Liebe" Schulman's old-time banjo classic "Pretty Little Dog," HaBanot Nechama, and selections from Leonard Cohen's "Live in London" concert.

6pm - "Betten Gav" Show with Michael Franti & Spearhead
8pm - The Pretenders ("Best Of" Album - really good!)
10pm - The Band's classic The Last Waltz
11pm - CARLOS-FEST! Yes, Radio Free Nachlaot is going to see Carlos Santana LIVE in Israel on June 3rd (thanks to Divine Intervention and H. "Shtarker" M. :) ) and to begin the build-up to this climactic event, we'll be playing 1972's Carlos Santana and Buddy Miles Live album, followed by 1973's Love, Devotion, Surrender and 1976's Festival.
Whew! After all that Carlos ... rain songs all night into the Wee Small Hours of the Morning ... then right back with you again with Lorelai's Tuesday Edition of "Morning Dew for the Morning Jew" Show.

Stormy Monday in The Holy Land


It started last night ... "Thunderbolts and lightening, very very frightening..." although of course we were far more delighted than we were frightened, as we watched in awe as massive thunderbolts lit up the Jerusalem night skies ... l'kavod the much-needed, much-prayed-for RAIN we're finally (Baruch HaShem!) receiving in Jerusalem (and throughout ALL of Eretz Yisrael, from Rosh Pina in the North to Elat in the South) we're celebrating STORMY MONDAY on Lorelai's "Morning Dew for the Morning Dew" show - stay tuned for wet, wild & wonderful tunes - make sure you step outside and catch raindrops on your tongue, it's a segula for good things to come - don't worry about looking silly (Heaven knows we endorse a healthy amount of silliness here at Radio Free Nachlaot, it's good for body and soul) - stay inside & declare a "Jammie Day," or run splashing through the streets - any way you choose to enjoy the day - celebrate the wetness!

After the show, b'ezrat HaShem - STEVE LEVINE'S COOKIN' FOR EVEV SHABBOS SHOW sometime after 9:30pm - stay tuned!

Praying for Rain


Today in Israel we're fasting and praying for RAIN - the blessing and the bounty of HaShem, Who gives His Holy Land rain in direct proportion to the love and devotion showed to Him by His People, the Jews. It has nothing to do with global warming, weather patterns, rising seas or diminishing ozone layers here - yes, in the rest of the world it DOES, but in Israel - the Land that HaShem Himself has His eyes on from the beginning of the year until the end - we're completely dependent upon His grace and mercy for precipitation, as we recite twice a day in the after-blessings of the Shema prayer. So to help the process along, we'll be playing all RAIN SONGS this morning on Radio Free Nachlaot, sending wet and wild vibes out into the universe, with the intentionality of attracting both the moisture AND the mercy we so desperately need ... Stay Tuned for today's schedule by late morning / early afternoon ....

Tuesday Night Blues - 8:00 pm (Jerusalem Time, of course!)


It's Tuesday Night Blues tonight after 8pm (Jerusalem Time) on Radio Free Nachlaot - featuring Robert Johnson's "King of the Delta Blues Singer," the 1961 compilation album considered by many to be "one of the greatest and most influential blues albums ever made." Chosen as Number 27 of Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, this album changed the course of musical history by its intense influence (as stated repeatedly by both) on both Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton.
That's just how we roll around here at Radio Free Nachlaot. We're all about changing your life with music.
