Cookin' for Shabbos HaGadol

The Nesivos Shalom asks: Why Shabbos Ha-Gadol? Isn't every Shabbos, Shabbos Ha-Gadol?
Isn't every Shabbos the Great Shabbos?
and I say, yes, every Shabbos is a great Shabbos, and Shabbos Ha-Gadol should also be a Great Shabbos! -- and I say every show should be a Great Show, so how could Cookin' for Shabbos HaGadol show be any less? We have more and more and more music - the palette is expanding-which means the soundtrack just gets better all the time. C Ya on the Radio!

In the Footsteps of Our Fathers to the Houses of the Holy and Beyond

It's Tuesday and we're hurling towards Pesach. Activity is fast and furious throughout the neighborhood - carpets are being beaten within an inch of their lives, floors are being scrubbed mercilessly, new kitchen appliances are being purchased and installed, children are sent into the streets to sniffle and whine while their mothers root out every crumb from behind beds, under covers, between the pages of books - in short, Pre-Pesach Hysteria reigns throughout the Holy City and there just is no reasoning with it whatsoever - in a culture where "More is More" and fences are built around fences, humras (an unnecessary stringency) are taken for halacha and mentioning to a hard-core Balabusta that dirt ISN'T chametz and the halacha for Pesach isn't about cleaning the grout on your bathroom walls with a toothbrush is taken BADLY, very badly. The best policy at this point seems to be to keep quiet and just keep playing music, more music! We're going to follow the Footsteps of Our Fathers into the Houses of the Holy, and you're invited to join us on our musical journey towards leaving Mitzrayim. Just remember you don't have to Walk Like An Egyptian.

Today's Torah Schedule:
  • 1pm - Rabbi Betzalel Phillip Edwards enlightens us via the Mei HaShiloach "On Pesach Cleaning."
  • 2pm - Rabbi Chaim Richman's Parsha Shavua "Tzav"
  • 3pm - Rabbi Chaim Richman "Nissan: Month of Rebirth"
  • 4pm - Rabbi Dovid Bendory "Baking Matzo for Pesach"
  • 5pm - Rabbi Aaron Leibowitz "Pesach Huddles" (by much popular request - the whole series)

Today's Music Schedule:
  • 8am - 1pm "Morning Dew for the Morning Jew" - we're playing a lot of NEW music - our library is expanding like - YEAST!!! 
  • 1pm - 6pm - "Israeli Soul" Afternoon - Yosef Karduner, Breslov Shabbos Tunes and Klezmorim. It's a safe place to park your radio - you won't hear ANYTHING your Neshama won't appreciate!
  • 6pm - Branford Marsalis "In The Footsteps of Our Fathers"  "a joyous homage to jazz immortals living and dead" and altogether GREAT music for early evening chillaxation.
  • 7:15pm - Led Zepplin "Houses of The Holy" - with bonus "Stairway to Heaven" track at the end - get yourself psyched for the evening!
  • 8pm - Tom Petty "Into The Great Wide Open" (1991) and "The Last DJ" (2002)
  • 9:30pm - The Allman Brothers Live at Jones Beach (8-24-05) - Rock your world, Southern Style!
Friends, it's time to clean up our acts. Start inside your own hearts before you worry about the grout between the tiles in the bathroom. Root out those yeasty crumbs of resentment, anger, disappointment and depression, and throw them far, far away - make room for the unleavened bread of joy because, guess what? We're about to be LIBERATED! Put on your walking shoes and get ready to journey with us during the rest of the week as we lead up to Shabbos and Pesach itself - we won't let you down on Radio Free Nachlaot!

Countdown To Pesach Week at Radio Free Nachlaot

It's almost here .... Pesach is coming! Pesach is coming! Maybe you've noticed an escalation in the general hysteria, cleaning and polishing frenzy, the purchasing of new appliances, and the obsession with rooting out every last crumb of anything leavened - or maybe (like Lorelai) you've just moved into a brand new remodeled apartment and you've got nothing at all to clean - ("Just lucky, I guess!"). Whatever your condition you can be sure Radio Free Nachlaot is HERE FOR YOU this week - music to clean by, music to shop by, music to worry by, music to prepare your hearts and souls for the biggest spiritual, culinary and family event of the Jewish Year.

Stay with us here and let us know what kind of music you'd like to hear as the accompanying soundtrack of your life - email us at radiofreenachlaot@gmail.com and (yes we do occasionally check our email) we'll try to accommodate you. Meanwhile - stay tuned for more great music, talk & Torah from the Heart of Nachlaot, Jerusalem's coolest neighborhood - NOT just a neighborhood, NOT just a State of Mind, but a lifestyle! Live the dream, come home to Israel or if you can't be here for Pesach - stay with us on Radio Free Nachlaot!

Tonight we will be featuring Torah from Yeshiva Sulam Yaakov's Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbbi Aharon Leibowitz :"Pesach Huddles 1-7". The Pesach Huddles will air beginning at aporx 7:30 Yerushalayim Time -- every hour (or as close to every hour as we can get).

It's Only Rock 'n' Roll But We Love It - and so do YOU!

It's all beginning to make sense. The cycle of Time isn't a wheel, it's an ascending spiral - as Genesis says in the lyrics to "The Carpet Crawlers" - "It's the bottom of a staircase that spirals out of sight." Rosh Chodesh Nissan 5770 has ushered in some pretty fiery energies, today the Moon is in Aries (the first of the Fire Signs and the Zodiac Sign associated with the month of Nissan) and to kick it up a notch tonight we're featuring the most successful Fire Sign pairing in musical history - Mick Jagger (Leo) and Keith Richards (Sagittarius), the "Glimmer Twins" and pillars of that indefatigable institution known as The Rolling Stones. Yes my friends, it's *ONLY* Rock 'n' Roll but we like it, like it, like it - yes we do - and so do you!

Today is also the shared birthdays of both Jazz singer and recording legend Nat "King" Cole and Jefferson Airplane co-founder Paul Kanter. What's the connection here? When my Mother was pregnant with me she used to lay on the floor with her best girlfriend smoking cigarettes, drinking Martinis and listening to Nat "King" Cole records. When I was going to college at San Francisco State University in 1976 - 78, I used to see Paul Kanter and Grace Slick all the time in San Francisco's Chinatown. They'd pull up to some Chinese restaurant in a big black limo to pick up Take-Out food (you'd think big Rock Stars could order in, but the best Chinese restaurants wouldn't send delivery boys to Paul and Grace after a number of weird incidents were reported - that's ALL I can say about that!). Prenatal memories mix with late Teenager memories and it's all one big mish-mash inside my head - which is why it has to get OUT of my head and into the radio waves!

Today also features two new offerings: Pesach-themed Torahs from Rabbi Aaron Leibowitz of Sulaam Yaakov, and the debut of The Israeli Deli, a new podcast by Kimmi Randolph, featuring the best of Israeli Music. We're proud to feature Kimmi's work on Radio Free Nachlaot and hope you like it too!

Today's Torah Schedule:
  • 1pm, 5:45pm - Rabbi Betzalel Phillip Edwards expounds upon the Isbitzer Rebbe on Pesach.
  • 2pm - Rabbi Chaim Richman's Parsha Shavua "Vayikra"
  • 3pm - Rabbi Chaim Richman "Nissan: The Month of Miracles"
  • 4pm - Rabbi Aaron Leibowitz on Pesach (Part 1)

Today's Music Schedule:
  • 8am - 1pm: "Morning Dew for the Morning Jew" is full of Love and Marriage songs celebrating the impending nuptials of two good friends Avraham Moscowitz and Michelle Nechama Miriam Garland, interspersed with musical birthday tributes to Paul Kanter (Jefferson Airplane & Starship) and Nat "King" Cole.
  • 1pm - 6pm "Israeli Soul" Afternoon features music and Torahs from Reb Shlomo Carlebach interspersed with music from Shlomo Chevre Father-and -Son Yankele Shemesh and Oneg Shemesh.
  • 6pm - "Israeli Deli" - first episode - by podcaster Kimmi Randolph!
  • 7pm - Jeff Beck, Paris Theater in London 6-29-72
  • 8pm - Robbie Robertson "Music for the Native American"
  • 9pm - The Rolling Stones "Forty Licks" BOTH CD's! YES Mick & Keith will rock your evening!
  • 11:45pm - Joan Baez "Live in Japan" (Just to balance things out a little!)

Whetheryour thing is classic rock or the classics, there's something for everyone today on Radio Free Nachlaot. Happy Listening!

Don't Beware the Ides of March, Celebrate 29 Adar Instead!

Beware the Ides of March or celebrate them? You be the judge! March 15th falls, this year, on 29 Adar 5770. It's Phil Lesh's birthday Additionally,  on this day in Jewish History the very FIRST Commandment was given to Moshe and the Jewish People.

According to the Chabad web site:

Shortly before sundown on the 29th of Adar, G-d commanded Moses regarding the mitzvah of sanctifying the crescent new moon and establishing a lunar calendar. This is the first mitzvah the Jews were given as a nation.
Moses had difficulty envisaging the moon's appearance at the exact moment of its monthly rebirth. After the sun set, G-d showed Moses the crescent new moon of the new month of Nissan, showing him the precise dimensions of the moon at the moment the new month is to be consecrated.
For the generations that followed, each new month was ushered in when two witnesses testified before the Sanhedrin (rabbinic supreme court) that they had seen the molad, the new moon. In the 4th century CE, Hillel II foresaw that the Jews would no longer be able to follow a Sanhedrin-based calendar. So Hillel and his rabbinical court established the perpetual calendar which is followed today -- until Moshiach will come and reestablish the Sanhedrin.

It's also Pisces / Pisces - the Sun and Moon both in the last Sign of the Zodiac, two fish swimming in opposite directions, oblivious of each other. The peak of the Unconscious / Subconscious - as the Sun/Moon conjunct Mercury in Pisces gently allows us to speak the Truth - first to ourselves, then to each other. We can be Mirrors for each others Higher Selves, we can merge with the Universal Infinite, we can swim with the fishes beneath the sea where the Evil Eye can't see us, we can move our mouth like fish to speak to our Creator, and we take a big gulp of the infinite today as we prepare to move from Piscean Water into a blazing Rosh Chodesh Nissan - FIRE, baby . . . burn, baby - burn!

Today's Torah Schedule:
  • 4pm - Rabbi Chaim Richman's series on the Rambam "Shall We Build The Holy Temple?" Part 1
  • 5pm - Rabbi Dovid Bendory "Keeping Pesach Cleaning Sane" (by popular demand!)

Today's Music Schedule:
  • 8am - 1pm - "Morning Dew for the Morning Jew" celebrates new beginnings!
  • 1pm - 6pm - "Israeli Soul" Afternoon includes music from Knesiyal Hasechel, Beit Habubot and Aharit HaYamim.
  • 6pm - "Betten Gav" Chillaxation Hour with Appalachia Waltz featuring Marc O'Connor, Edgar Meyer and Yo-Yo Ma.
  • 7pm - 9pm - Billie and Bonnie! Two full hours of tunes from Billie Holiday and Bonnie Raitt. If you're not drinking by the end of this set, you "haven't got a heart."
  • 9pm - Phil Lesh's 70th Birthday! What a Long Strange Trip it's been! We're playing the Grateful Dead from Barton Hall, Cornell University New York recorded 5-8-77.
  • 11:30pm - David Crosby's All-Star  "If I Could Only Remember My Name" Album

"Time and Chance Happens To All"

It's Velvet Underground co-founder John Cale's 68th Birthday, as well as the 42nd anniversary of the release of Joni Mitchell's first studio album, produced by David Geffen ("Song for a Seagull," 1968) as well as the 35th album release anniversary of Steely Dan's "Katy Lied" (1975).

Are these numbers staggeringly scary? How could John Cale be 68? Is it really 42 years since Joni first stunned us with her beauty, grace and lyrical magic? How is it possible we heard "Katy Lied" for the first time only 35 years ago?

As Shlomo HaMelech - King Solomon - said in Ecclesiastes (Kohelet)
9:11 - "Time and Chance happens to all."    עֵת וָפֶגַע יִקְרֶה אֶת־כֻּלֽ

Although we hesitate to think about it, the March of Time continues relentlessly. Sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. In the case of today's artists - for the interesting. John Cale went on after his career with the Velvet Underground to collaborate with myriads of musicians of all different genres. David Geffen (Joni's "Free Man in Paris" and maybe the mysterious subject of Carly Simon's "Your So Vain") went from being a record producer to a major corporate player (co-founder of Dreamworks) and politically influential far beyond his wildest dreams. Of course Joni Mitchell herself went on to expand her musical and artistic career and continues singing and painting to this very day, B"H. Steely Dan (whom Rolling Stone Magazine called "The perfect musical anti-heroes for the Seventies") may have peaked in the '70's but they keep on touring and releasing new work.

Thankfully we have music to transport us into the realms of Eternity, where we stay Forever Young . . . or, at the very least, perpetually Young at Heart!

Today's Torah Schedule:
  • 1pm, 5:45pm: Rabbi Betzalel Phillip Edwards' Series on the Chevyra - the Piasetzner Rebbe's Conscious Community - Part 12

  • 1pm - 6pm: "Israeli Soul" Afternoon features a mix of Jerusalem-Themed Music, and patriotic Israeli Oldies (from the "Jerusalem of Gold" Album) from the '60's & '70's (you'll LOVE these) as well as music from Sasson and Matisyahu.

Pigpen's 37th Yartzeit - Tell Me Baby, Why You Been Gone So Long?

March 8th is the 37th Yartzeit of Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, the original keyboardist for the Grateful Dead and, according to DeadNet, the one we have to thank for the Grateful Dead becoming a Rock Band.

From Dead.Net:

Starting a rock band was actually Ron McKernan's idea, and he was its first front man, delivering stinging harmonica, keyboards, and beautiful blues vocals in the early years of the Warlocks/Grateful Dead. Nicknamed "Pigpen" for his funky approach to life and sanitation, he was born into a family that was generally conventional, except for the fact that his (Caucasian) father was an R & B disc jockey. And that sound put Pig's life on the rails of the blues from the time he was 12. Liquor, Lightnin' Hopkins, the harmonica and some barbecue - it was an unusual life for a white kid from San Carlos, but it was Pig's life. And the hard-drinkin' blues life began to catch up with Pig by the very early '70s. He played his last show with the band in 1972, and on March 8, 1973, he died of internal hemorrhaging caused by his drinking.

It's sobering (in a not-fun way) to realize Pigpen died at the age of 27. Anyone who ever saw or heard him perform surely felt they were listening to a much older man. Effects of drinking himself to death or a preternaturally old soul in a prematurely worn-out young body? As Jesse Colter sang:

Nothin' I wanna do oh I guess I could get stoned And let that past paint pictures on my head I could kill a fifth of Thunderbird, write myself a sad song Tell me baby why you been gone so long


In honor of Pigpen we're playing three consecutive early Grateful Dead concerts tonight, but first ...

Let Your Finger Do The Walking

Sometimes you just have to let your fingers do the walking . . . through pages, over ivory keys, between strings, until they bring you what you want - the sound you've been looking for, evoked from the depths of your soul and translated through your fingertips. This is music - from spirit to matter, and back again. This is why we are musical humans - why music is imprinted in the very sub-cellular system of our DNA itself - in fact, Scientists and Musicians have created MUSIC from DNA structure - we'll have to find some and play it for you! The point is - it's in our blood, it's in our flesh, it's in our soul and spirit and mind ... music! Music! Music! Keep it coming, keep it good, keeping it real ... that's our job. Your job is to enjoy, to partake, to ingest the music and let it come out of you again in song, in humming, in merry melody, in kind deeds, in sweet caresses to your loved ones ... music is spiritual nutrition. Eat and Drink! 

 Today's Torah Schedule:
  • 1pm, 5:45pm - Rabbi Betzalel Phillip Edwards' "Chevyria" Series (Part 13) on the Piasetzner Rebbe's Conscious Community continues.
  • 3pm, 5:15pm, 8:15pm - Rabbi Chaim Richman's Parsha Shavua "Ki Tisa"
  • 2pm - Rabbi Dovid Bendori "When Cleaning for Pesach Gets Out of Control" - a must-listen!
  • 3:30pm - Rabbi Dovid Bendori "Baking Matzos for Pesach"
Today's Music Schedule:
  • 8am -1pm: Lorelai's "Morning Dew for the Morning Jew" Show starts (as always) with Rebbe Nachman's Tikkun HaKlali, and continues all morning with a Salute to Feminine Fabulosity, featuriing Carly Simon, Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Bonnie Raitt, Indigo Girls, Lucinda Williams, Sinead O'Connor, Janis Joplin, Nancy Griffin, Suzanne Vega, Queen Latifah, Norah Jones, Joan Armatrading, Cheryl Crowe and more. There just isn't enough time!!!
  • 1pm - 6pm "Israeli Soul" Afternoon starts with a loving tribute to Antonio Vivaldi on the occasion of his 332nd Birthday! The Four Seasons plus a little more! We continue with "Locals We Love" - the beautiful piano stylings of Ariel Elisha Leon Rosen and Yosef Adest take us through the afternoon, ending with tunes from Akiva Gersh.
  • 6pm - Bob James - the Smooth Jazz & Jazz Fusion Master, treats us to "Fourplay" and "Between The Sheets" - something to snuggle up to!
  • 8pm - The Beatles! Yes, the Beatles - too classic, never out of fashion. All your favorite Beatles songs continue until Steve takes the wheel of this crazy bus we call Radio Free Nachlaot sometime after 9pm for his "Cookin' for Erev Shabbos Show" - don't go away, stay tuned to see what's cookin' in Steve's Soul Kitchen!
Friends, the End is Near - the End of the Week, that is. With much love and gratitude we wish you an amazing Shabbos - it's a special one (they all are, aren't they?) but the "chok" (statute) of the Red Heifer is read this Shabbos, and the essence of a "chok" is you CAN'T understand it rationally, it's beyond the capacity of the human mind to grasp - which is why HaShem gave "chokim" to us, to strengthen our faith and give us an opportunity to have a "reason to believe" - JUST BECAUSE HE SAYS SO. We wish you ever-growing EMUNAH FAITH and - Good Shabbos! Good Shabbos!

May You Multiply Like Fish . . . Country Joe & The Fish, Amen!

Purim may be over but Pisces is still in full swing - yes, we've "peaked" at the Full Moon and now we're on the downswing towards the next Rosh Chodesh which will bring us to Nissan/Aries /Passover time, but how do we get there? We SWIM, like the Fishes we truly are - after all, don't we bless our Jewish children with the hope they will be "Like Ephraim and Menashe, multiplying like fish" - what do you think that means? Fish swim beneath the water, so they're impervious to the "Evil Eye." Fish are always moving their mouths, but who are they talking to? They're talking to HaShem, constantly in a state of underwater Hibbodidut (free-form intimate unstructured prayer). Pisces, the 12th Sign of the Zodiac, associated with the month of Adar, is represented by two fish - one large, one small - swimming in opposite directions, completely unconscious of each others' presence. The downside of Pisces is unconsciousness, the upside of Pisces is sensitivity and awareness. No one is more oblivious than an undeveloped Pisces person and no one is more psychic, sensitive, empathetic and kind that an evolved Pisces. The Trick - and yes, of course there's a Trick - is to understand that we ALL have a part of our psyche which contains the watery energy of Pisces, and to redeem the Holy Sparks of our G*d-given personalities with the positive attributes of the Fish - beauty, grace, generosity, sensitivity, understanding, deep empathy, intuitiveness, kindness and the kind of completely effaced sense of service to humanity that Adar Energy inspires.

Today's Torah Schedule:
  • 1pm, 5:45pm - Rabbi Betzalel Phillip Edwards' "Chevyria" Series on the teachings of the Piasetzner Rebbe Continues (Part 12).
  • 2pm, 5pm, 7:45pm - Rabbi Chaim Richman's Parsha Shavua "Ki Tisa"
  • 3pm - Rabbi Moshe New's "Pesach Overview" (yes, it's time to start learning about Pesach!)

Today's Music Schedule:
  • 8:00am - 1pm: Lorelai's "Morning Dew For The Morning Jew" Show begins (as always) with Rebbe Nachman's Tikkun HaKlali, and continues all morning with songs from John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Joe Cocker, Steely Dan, Lou Reed, the Rolling Stones, Elvis Costello and The Doors. Why these artists today? It's the birthday of Lorelai's old college friend-for-life Buzzy Bruce-Lamour (so-called "real" name to be withheld as he grew up to be a really famous person!). These are the tunes and artists that remind her of Buzzy and, as he liked to say as he was pretending to be a dive bombing Luftwaffe aircraft drunkenly crashing into her on the floor of her dorm room at San Francisco State University: "Bite My Fish!" Happy Birthday, Buzz!
  • 1pm - 6pm "Israeli Soul" Afternoon features beautiful All -Female musical stylings from Meirah Miriam Bet-Dovid and the Gan Eden Project, and Nomi Teplow.
  • 6pm: Stevie Wonder's masterpiece, "Songs in the Key of Life." Everybody needs some Stevie!
  • 8pm: Country Joe McDonald and The Fish! Live at Fillmore West, 1969! Fillmore West was the famous concert venue in San Francisco which Bill Graham ultimately turned into Winterland. This is one of their classic performances, don't miss it!
  • 9:30pm - 12:30am: The Grateful Dead Live at the Cow Palace 1976 (Just to make sure we give equal billing to the "other" San Francisco concert venue, we don't want Fillmore West AKA Winterland to get jealous, a LOT of great music went down at The Cow Palace in its day although acoustically it wasn't nearly as good as Winterland - but don't worry, this is a concert recorded directly from the Sound Board so it'll sound fine).
So, dear listeners, swim with the fishes today - not like Luca Brazzi did in The Godfather, G*d forbid, but like Ephraim and Menashe - beneath the waters, away from the gaze of the Evil Eye, always moving your mouth in silent Hibbodidut prayer to HaShem, and full of gratitude to your Creator . . . whether you're swimming upstream or downstream, you're not alone. Fish swim in SCHOOLS. School is where you LEARN. May the lessons of Adar be deeply ingrained within you and don't forget, Radio Free Nachlaot is swimming along right beside you!

Satellite of Love!

March 2nd is the birthday of Lou Reed, Karen Carpenter and Jon Bon-Jovi. It's also the Yartzeit of Dusty Springfield and Hank Ballard. Connections? Of course!

Which is, of course, what we DO - right here on Radio Free Nachlaot.
We're not hung over from Purim. Quite the contrary, we're facing the coming weeks with the sobriety required to search out every last crumb of Chametz as we hurl towards Pesach - and you can be sure that we're going to let you feel every ache and pain we experience in doing so - and as we feel YOUR pain, we'll be playing pain relief music all the while - keeping you company as you keep US company by listening to our programming. Between now and Pesach we have lots of special things in store for you, our faithful and ever-growing legion of listeners! Stay Tuned and you'll be surprised AND delighted!
