Tonight we'll hear original work from Benjamin Brody, Paul Thomas (a.k.a. Dovid Ben Avroham from Holon), Ofer Golani, Ben Schwed, Jim Costello (a.k.a. Yaakov Yisrael), an ABC News Australia feature about Lazer Lloyd Blumen and some music from him as well, Gary Lifshitz, Majuda and Yair Gordon. WOW! That's a whole lotta Homegrown!
Do you think you can handle it? We do - we have faith in you - and if you have original music you'd like to share with us you can email it to us as MP3 files to email@example.com - we'll give it a listen & if it's tasty we'll share it with our World-Wide listening audience - Tuesday Nights 7pm - Homegrown Rules!
Luckily most of you know you can come right here to our awesome web page to find out what's going on - another location on the Internet - yes, "It Came From Outer Space" - your internet connection did and so does all the music, talk & Torah you hear on Radio Free Nachlaot - first our little digital 1's & 0's have to be hurled out into the atmosphere and beyond, to a satellite and back - sometimes we'll be sitting right next to each other & sending each other digital messages instead of just TALKING ... we're so used to this cold digital world we've forgotten that REAL LIFE HAPPENS IN ANALOGUE.
Nevertheless! We continue... with music from Leonard Cohen this morning - if our luck holds we'll be visiting live in-studio with Ephraim Jeffery Geltman this morning around 11, and if our luck continues to hold throughout the afternoon we'll be live in-studio with music industry legend and fellow Olah Chadash (for how many years we'll find out later!) Ronnie Vance sometime between 3 and 4 ... stay tuned for more updates but one thing you CAN be sure of, whether it comes from Outer Space or not - you can always tune into our Radio Free Nachlaot stream right here from our web page and listen to find out what's going on!
Did we mention lately you can listen to us on iTunes Radio under the "International / World" Genre, AND of course on your iPhone with one click from the iPhone icon picture on this page, it'll launch your Quicktime player and voila, we're in business - yes, there's no business like Show Business and we guess that's the business we're in!

1pm - Rabbi Chaim Richman on Psalm 27 - Psalm 27 is traditionally recited in the morning and evening every day during the month of Elul. What is the secret of this Psalm? What special significance does it have for this month of prayer and repentance? An exploration of its meaning sheds light upon the true goal of the month of Elul – to make a real, uncompromising and trusting relationship with G-d our first priority.
3pm - Part 7 of Rav Avraham Sutton's teaching on Elul
5pm - Repeat of the live program we did this morning with Benzion Eliyahu Lehrer - it's a real mind blower - don't miss it!
Between shiurim we'll have music from Shoshanna Piano and VERY VERY VERY SPECIAL SHLOMO CARLEBACH MUSIC AND TORAHS - DON'T MISS IT!!! This is the afternoon to stay close to us - remember you can listen on your iPhone - 1-click from the icon on this web site, no app needed - take us with you wherever you go!

1 AM and going strong -- Bonnie Raitt from 12/31/89 (she opened for the Grateful Dead New Year's Show)
At 2:15 -- The Grateful Dead....yup, you guessed it - 12/31/89 -- "Happy New Year Everybody!"
And so we're off and running --
running on empty?
running down the road to Rosh Hashonah,
running out the end of Elul - fixing the months of the year, and then we'll be fixing the days of the year - and hopefully we're fixing ourselves every step of the way....
I mean, we're even trying to fix the microphones here at Radio Free Nachlaot -- where we're fixin' to have a musically good time!
I hope you'll stay tuned, and enjoy the ride - which will also include:
5:30 AM' ish - Grateful Dead from Oakland, 2/26/90
7:00 AM'ish - Counting Crows, Across a Wire - Live from New York,
and then (9:00 or so) a touch of Christine Lavin,
Chaim Richman on the parsha at 9:30, and then some Sunday AM music including: Bert Jansch and John Renbourn, Pentangle, and Steelye Span.
At 12:30 or so we'll have a long shot of Shlomo, and then starting around 2PM we'll have Bossa Nova Jazz and Jazz all afternoon, including:
Delicatessen - Jazz and Bossa Nova, Michael Franks, Martin Sexton, Stan Getz and Astrid Gilberto, and then we'll have some straight ahead Jazz from Keith Jarret and Flora Purim and Airto - with Chick Corea - Return to Forever, which will lead us to Lorelai and Steve - Sunday Night Live, with perhaps a still to be determined guest ....
Remember, all times are Jerusalem Times, and are dependent on SAM (our broadcast program) who tends to run early (how did he get to be part of our crew??)
All I can say is that we'll keep you posted!

One minute we're praying the morning prayers, next minute we're looking for a "cool" place to hide from the 109 degree afternoon heat, and then we're preparing to greet the Sabbath the moment the sun sets, and leaves the sky --
Cycles, life, minutes, hours, days, weeks, years, 7 years, 50 years, spirals in time that are perceived as linear, but we know are really circular - like a slinky, moving cross the horizon --highs, lows, and all the in-betweens....
Constants? G-d, life, death, love, hate, garbage and laundry, and of course - Music, right here on Radio Free Nachlaot.
We started the day with "Jerusalem Calling" - our special program - words and music intended to reach out to our Chutz L'aaretz audience who we know are still awake and listening....
And the rest of the day: we have the Grateful Dead from the Stanley Theater 9/26/72 (that's New Jersey) at 9:00 AM, and we have our Noon L'chaim - our Shot of Shlomo scheduled to begin at 12:00 (what a surprise, a Noon L'chaim beginning at noon???)
AT 3:00 our "Not for Kids Only," Childrens' Hour will feature the Jungle Book, and then 4:30 t0 6:30, Jerry and Shlomo will dance us all the way to Shabbos...
Ah, Shabbos - a time when we can relax, refresh, and bask in the Holy Light of Shabbos, a taste of the infinite light of the world to come.
But then, before we blink an eye - it will be Motzoei Shabbos. Oy, Oy, Oy, - Week-Welcome back ! Which can only mean it's time for our Melave Malke on the air (starting 9, 9:30 ish) and we'll be off again, off to greet Saturday night, off to greet the week ahead.
We read the curses this Shabbos to get them behind us -- to leave it wide open for a week of blessings, goodness and happiness.
May we see the blessings, feel the good and know the happiness -- We do know it's all Good, don't we ??!!!
Good Shabbos, Good Shabbos, Good Shabbos.

At 12:00pm we'll hear: A Healer's Crisis: Entering the Belly of the Beast. Why do we get sick? What does illness mean, really? Why does God give us DIS-ease? Come along as we explore the difference between Proximate and Ultimate causes of illness, and discover how we can use this understanding to catapult ourselves into new levels of TESHUVAH: returning to OUR REAL SELVES.
If you'd like to send Dr. Liebe an email with a medical / healing / health-related question, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org or c/o Dr. Liebe at email@example.com and we'll pass it along. If your question is chosen you may hear her answer it right here on the radio!

Well, in our case, what you really need might not be a Wizard at all - maybe you just need a Cohen.
We present the Cohen Gadol of Musical Poetry: LEONARD COHEN, LIVE IN LONDON playing at 7:30pm tonight on - yes, of course - ONLY on Radio Free Nachlaot.
Let's click our heels together three times and say...
There's no place like home...

Good Shabbos, Good Shabbos,
It's time to sit back, Refresh, Relax, ReHydrate -
It's time to Sanctify the Day with a glass of wine
It's time to connect to the Creator, May his name be blessed, because we know that HE knows why it's so Darn HOT!
It's time for all good broadcasters to turn off their over-heated equipment and cool-down.
It's Time for Shabbos, Praise the Lord.
We will return Motzoei Shabbos, after 9PM -- Motzoei Shabbos will meet Saturday Night, right here on Radio Free Nachlaot.
We thank you for listening.
Good Shabbos, Good Shabbos

My Bubbie, aleha hashalom, used to say, "on a hot day, drink a hot tea!" Oy, oy Bubbie, does that really work? Well, I'm sure if my Bubbie was around today she would say, "on a hot day, listen to the radio station coming out of the "coolest" neighborhood around, Radio Free Nachlaot!" Would my Bubbie be wrong?
Wednesday, August 18, 2010

Between Noon and 1pm we'll hear the original Bridge School Benefit from 1986, featuring music from CSNY, Nils Lofgrin, Bruce Springsteen, Don Henley, Tom Petty, and Robin Williams.
Our "Israeli Soul Afternoon" starts at 1pm with music from SoulFarm, Matisyahu, the Moshav Band and Neshama Carlebach.
Hungry for some Torah? We'll hear the Parsha Shavua Ki Teizei by Rabbi Chaim Richman at 1pm and 7:15pm, "Elul" Part 3 by Avraham Sutton at 3pm and Ozer Bergman's Rebbe Nachman Shiur from last week at 5pm.

We wait upon Your Mighty and Merciful Hand!!!
Gevaldt, are you full yet or are you still snacking? There's more to come ... tomorrow is another musical day!
Tuesday, August 17, 2010
Why does this delight us? Because it proves our point - that Radio Free Nachlaot is indeed "broadcasting from behind the tie-dye mechitza" and reaching out all over the WORLD, bringing people together with music. Dare we say that we're actually changing the World one song at a time? We really think this is true. To all our listeners and (maybe secret) fans in the pan-Islamic World we say: SHALOM ALECHEM FROM JERUSALEM, we say: Thank you for listening, we say: Even if our respective Governments and religious authority systems tell us we should hate each other we at Radio Free Nachlaot say: we should be listening to music together. Gevaldt.
We're starting the day off right - with Rebbe Nachman's Tikkun HaKlali at 8am - 10 Tehillim (Psalms) to set your soul right and fix what's broken - recite them along with us if you like: Psalm 16, 32, 41, 42, 59, 77, 90, 105, 137 and 150.
8:30am - 1pm: "Morning Dew for the Morning Jew" brings us music from Joni Mitchell, Michelle Shocked, REM, Peter Paul & Mary, Yes, Waylon Jennings, Tina Malia, The Tubes, The Kinks, The doors, Queen Latifah, The Beatles, The Beach boys, Stan Getz, Sinatra and MORE, much more!
We'll have a special TORAH from Rebbetzin Rena Richman's "Bat Melech" Series on the REAL meaning of "Modesty" - Part 1 at 1pm, Part 2 at 2pm.
In-between Torahs this afternoon we'll hear music from our friend RebbeSoul (Bruce Burger) - always the best!
At 3pm we'll continue with Rav Avraham Sutton and his series on the Jewish Holiday Cycle - we're in ELUL (we'll hear Part 4).
5pm - Rabbi Chaim Richman's new piece on "The Accuser We Create" (wow, maybe we should all listen to this!) Our sages teach that “whoever commits a sin, acquires an accuser for himself.” These are negative forces that become our persecutors, and we actually create these forces through our own misdeeds. They are nourished through our misguided energy and unless we act to correct the situation, they will rise up to accuse us. G-d “bears the iniquity” of these accusers, which we have brought into the world, who pollute His creation.
From 5:30 - 6pm We're playing the classic Israeli folk duo "High Windows" (Melvin, this one's for you!) :)
6pm - 11pm: The last, the very last of our 3-day tribute to the 41st Anniversary of WOODSTOCK continues with music from Country Joe and the Fish, the Jefferson Airplane, The Band, Arlo Guthrie, Canned Heat, Janis, Joe Cocker, some of the "Lost Performances" and of course, The Grateful Dead.
At 11pm on our "Dead or Dead-Related" Show we're honoring the 1200th Facebook Friend we've made by playing DICK'S PICKS 12! All 3 CD's!!! Recorded June 28th 1974 at Boston Garden. That will take us into the wee hours of the morning ... stay tuned for more!

Everybody knows that Tzfat is to Jerusalem what Nachlaot is to The Old City ... they're connected by an invisible umbilical cord. There are four special Holy Cities in the Land of Israel, corresponding to the four elements: Jerusalem (Fire), Tzfat (Air), Hevron (Earth) and Tiveria (Water). We hope to be able to broadcast live from all four locations one day! Meanwhile, thanks to the magic of wireless internet and the ingenuity of our friend Andy Alpern, we've already brought you many wonderful concerts live from the Khan of the White Donkey in Tzfat ... we're already mamash so very connected!!!
Stay connected with us at Radio Free Nachlaot. Today's schedule looks like this:
2pm: Rabbi Chaim Richman's Parsha Shavua - "Shoftim"
3pm: Rav Avraham Sutton's Series on the Jewish Holiday Cycle - Elul, part 2
5pm: Rav Ozer Bergman's Rebbe Nachman Shiur from last Thursday August 5th.
Interspersed throughout the Torah is music from Simply Tsfat, The New Klezmer Trio and David Grisman's "Songs of Our Fathers"
6pm: "A 3-Cornered Shoe" - The Soundtrack from "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" followed by Ritchie Havens from Woodstock and Otis Redding from Monterey Pop. The 3-Cornered (triangular) shoe is a concept from Rebbe Nachman's story "The Tam and the Cocham" (the Simpleton and the Sophisticate).
8pm - if everything goes well - we'll be live from Tzfat's Klezmer Festival!!! Stay with us!
We've made it to Wednesday (Day 2 post the 9 days of Jerry)-
Lorelai is in Tzfat and will be checking in this afternoon - but before we go north, at 11:00 AM we will travel into the world of Yitzhak Marmorstein, which is also the world of Rav Kook, ZT"L.
Rav Kook's 75th Yahrzeit is 3 Elul, and Yitzhak will tell us about the Haorot project, the upcoming Yahrzeit Concert, and a whole bunch of other stuff - so, STAY TUNED!

CLICK HERE TO Download this 11-minute piece of passion and purpose and enjoy Rabbi Richman's Parsha Shavua, "Light Unto the Nations," specials on The Holy Temple and Rena Richman's "Bat Melech" Series on a regular basis on Radio Free Nachlaot.
We feel it's an especially appropriate time to release this piece, just coming off of The 9 Days of Jerry and suddenly it's Rosh Chodesh Elul and we're rushing towards the High Holy Days. The Chaggim are practically upon us. Music is more important now than it's ever been. Listen and find out why.
Chodesh Tov - The King is in the Field - The Jewish Holiday Cycle with Avraham Sutton on Radio Free Nachlaot
Rav Avraham Sutton teaches through the Jewish Holiday Cycle and we begin (aptly enough, since it's Rosh Chodesh Elul 5770 today) with his classes on the Month of Elul. Learn with Rav Sutton at 3pm Jerusalem Time Mondays - Thursdays on Radio Free Nachlaot.
Avraham Sutton is an Orthodox Torah mentor, teacher and author. For over 30 years, he has been learning and teaching prophetic Torah, kabbalah, talmud, midrash, chassidut, prayer, meditation and sacred song. He has translated, edited and/or authored over 20 major works in English on the deeper significance of Torah for our age.
Rav Sutton's Shiurim (which will air Mondays - Thursdays at 3pm on Radio Free Nachlaot) are available for SPONSORSHIP. If you'd like to Sponsor one of Avraham Sutton's teachings please contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org for details about "How-To."
There's no better way to start the Month of Elul than by Sponsoring a Torah Shiur on Radio Free Nachlaot!
The term comes from a verse in
Just to break the fast - gently - we played Neil Young's "After the Goldrush" which was probably just right in terms of tone and vibes with our audience, not to shell-shock them with anything too radical - then for Jerry Isru Chag we played Jerry Garcia and David Grisman from Squaw Valley, the PERRO Sessions and finally the Jerry Garcia Band at the Warner Theater 3/18/78 ... which is still playing as this is being written.
We'll hear Rebbe Nachman's "Tikkun HaKlali" at 9am Jerusalem Time this morning and then a couple of hours of Lorelai's "Morning Dew for the Morning Jew" Show - an eclectic mix of music today populated by tunes from Michelle Shocked, Tom Paxton, The Tzimmies, The Turtles, John Prine, Tina Turner, The Pretenders, The Kinks, The Beatles, Louis Armstrong, Sublime, Suzanne Vega, Gypsy Kings, Jefferson Airplane, Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac, Stan Getz and more.
At 12:15pm we'll hear all of Jerry Garcia's first solo album "Garcia" and that should take us to about 1pm - when we'll be treated to the music of Israeli Super-Group TAMMUZ (they were "The Israeli Beatles" and still enormously popular here in Israel) until 2pm when Steve will take over the stream.
We've got Torah from Rav Avraham Sutton at 3pm as we begin Rav Sutton's "Through the Jewish Holiday" Cycle with teachings about ELUL - yes, it's the first day of Rosh Chodesh (the new month) Elul, 5770 (as we Jews reckon time) and "The King is in the Field" - HaShem has come down off His throne and walks amongst us, close to us and beckons us to come close to Him during this special time of Elul, the month preceeding the High Holy Days - and we'll take you even HIGHER on Radio Free Nachlaot - stay tuned!
Jerry Fans - don't despair! We promise to keep it coming. In case you're concerned with having any post-Jerry anxiety, know our NEW AND IMPROVED REGULAR BROADCAST SCHEDULE (stay tuned for the colorful grid!) features "DEAD (OR DEAD-RELATED) ALIVE" Jerry and Jerry-related music every Tuesday and Wednesday night from 11pm - 1am. Plus we're also playing "A Dose of Dead" Thursdays and Fridays from 5 - 7am Jerusalem Time.
That's not of course to the exclusion of any random Jerry-ness we may feel like putting into our regular schedule, of course! It's our radio station, we can do what we want to!
Chodesh Tov! Happy Jerry Isru Chag!

We've made it to The 9th Day of Jerry, together!
Listeners from around the World have joined Radio Free Nachlaot by the hundreds since August 1st (remember Day 1? It seems like so long ago now!) to celebrate Jerry Garcia in all his permutations.
We heard the last Jerry Garcia Band Show (The Warfield 4/23/95), then we heard the last Grateful Dead Show (Soldier's Field, Chicago 7/9/95) earlier this afternoon.
Now we're playing "Comes a Time" the Jerry Garcia Tribute Concert that took place in 2005. Warren Haynes, Trey Anastasio, Bruce Hornsby, Bob Weir, Jimmy Herring and more got together at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles on 9/24/05 to bid goodnight and goodbye to Jerry.
At 8pm tonight (Jerusalem Time of course) "Reb Moishe" - that is to say Moshe Pesach Geller, World-renown Deadhead and Universally-known Shlomo Carlebach hassid - will be IN THE HOUSE with Steve and Lorelai as we do our "GRAND FINALE YARTZEIT SHOW" Live tonight from 8pm through Midnight. Moishe is going to bring down and give over "The Torah of Jerry" and play us his fantasy / dream Show ... the one that never happened, but should have.
Will there be life after Jerry? Of course there will be - don't forget, "The Music Never Stopped!" Stay tuned for WHAT'S NEXT - Jerry Isru Chag - AND BEYOND?

"On The 9th Day of Jerry my Radio Free Nachlaot gave to me ... another whole day of JERRY..."
No matter how you measure time, there's never enough of it. We've crossed so many time/space barriers together during The 9 Days of Jerry, and all of it has come from Jerusalem, the heart of the World, where (some are amazed to find) Deadheads live in abundance, especially in Nachlaot. Our Special Guest DJ tonight Drew Tick made the point during the show that until he moved to Nachlaot a number of years ago he didn't know there was a community of Jerry Head and Shlomo Heads until he moved here...and then he found out, indeed he did.
This morning - the morning of The 8th Day, of course - we had a Brit-Milah on the air - Pesach & Kari Sara Rothberg's third son was welcomed into the community of Israel & we rejoiced together with the baby, little Ariel Yaakov Ben Pesach Benzion v'Sara. Radio Free Nachlaot was proud to host the first-ever Internet Radio "Bris-Cast" for the Rothberg family.
Tonight's Show with Drew Tick was a gevaldt when Steve and Drew (who have never met each other) discovered they are both from Western Massachusetts and played "Jewish Geography" on-air. Drew is someone who has incorporated the best of Shlomo Carlebach and Jerry Garcia into his life and lifestyle, and it was a pleasure to play some great tunes with him tonight.
