Rockin' It From Far Rockaway - Shabbos is Coming! Shabbos is Coming!

It's Friday - and it feels WEIRD going into Shabbos without Steve Levine at the helm, but a guy's gotta do what he's gotta do - like, travel to the U.S. for his daughter's wedding!

Last night Steve "cooked for Shabbos" on-air with us, remotely from Far Rockaway, NY where he gave a full (and very cool) report on the wedding of Shulie Levine and Matt Cohen - mazal tov, mazal tov to the new couple! Grandson Shmuel and Grand-daughter Orly got in the act too, playing radio with their Zaydie (that's Steve). Radio Free Nachlaot: TOTALLY a "family affair"!

Steve will be back with us, Cookin' for Shabbos again NEXT Thursday night (June 23rd) at 10pm Jerusalem time. Rumor has it (Steve said!) that on Sunday June 26th, Steve will be broadcasting LIVE from the mysterious studios of one of our favorite bands in the U.S., BLANKET STATEMENTSTEIN (whose song "Hippies" is the unofficial Radio Free Nachlaot theme song). Should be quite a TRIP!

Meanwhile - Lorelai. What about Lorelai? "HOME ALONE" with the radio? Well, it takes a village (to coin a phrase) to run a radio station when the musical director is away! This week has seen some great Guest DJ's come all the way down to mysterious Undisclosed Studio G to "Play Radio" with Lorelai while Steve is gone. This week we had the amazing Josh Hasten, Ofer Golani, Yosef Ibn Mardychia and Ernie Singer join Lorelai in the DJ Booth (in live video AND radio!) and this is the Guest DJ lineup (so far) for next week:

Sunday: BEN SCHWED (7pm)
Tuesday: BEN BRESKY (2pm), ARI LOUIS (3pm), AMIT GOLAN (Co-Hosting THE HOMEGROWN HOUR with Lorelai at 7pm)
Wednesday: SHMUEL ELIYAHOO NEWMAN (5pm)
Thursday: NETTIE FELDMAN (12N), MATTHEW MAUSNER (2pm)

Plus: our regular (if you can call her "regular," we really can't!) DJ MAYA will be doing her thing (we think she likes the video in the DJ booth thing now!) Tuesday at 10am and Wednesday at 9pm. Additionally, Benzion Eliyahu Lehrer's "Returning Light" will return (DJ Booth version) on Thursday at 4pm, and we'll be broadcasting Rav Ozer Bergman's Thursday Night Rebbe Nachman Chebura next Thursday at 7:30pm (as per our usual minhag!) in live streaming video goodness, and, b'ezrat HaShem, simulcast on the radio.

So ... you see, we've got a full plate of music and fun on order for you!

Thanks Steve for taking the time out of your U.S. trip to rock it for us from Far Rockaway last night ... can't wait to hear you again (and surely the audience agrees!) - and if you're in Jerusalem and want to "Play Radio" with Lorelai, send us an email at: radiofreenachlaot@gmail.com - we want to hear from you!

Today on the "Not For Kids Only" Children's Hour (3:30pm) we're going to play  MARY POPPINS. At 6pm we'll let Reb Shlomo take us into Shabbos the way only he can. Because the bottom line is this: SHABBOS IS COMING, SHABBOS IS COMING! Whether you're here or there, far or near - Shabbos is coming - may we all have a sweet and restful one, and we'll "See You on the Radio" Moetzi Shabbos - Good Shabbos, Shabbat Shalom everyone!
