SKRUFFY JAZZ, BRAINWAVES DEBUTS AND - MAYA'S BAAAAACK!!!

Wednesday, August 31st - Two of our favorite "Regulars" return, and a new friend joins us for the first time!

At 12 Noon, The Crimson Stone returns with a new season of THE SKRUFFY JAZZ SHOW. Mamash, it's been several weeks without those Skruffy Sounds - we're so ready to slide into some hot jazz with our cool Jazz DJ!

And this evening....

After "ONLY" a brief 28-year hiatus from radio, Jerusalem's own  BRIAN BLUM debuts his new radio show TONIGHT on Radio Free Nachlaot!

BRAINWAVES is an eclectic rock music program spanning multiple genres and decades. Each two-hour sonic adventure might go from modern indie pop rock (Snow Patrol, Fountains of Wayne), to classic 70s progressive (Peter Gabriel-era Genesis), to 80s new wave (A Flock of Seagulls) and 80s jangly pop (early REM, Marshall Crenshaw), to melodic grunge (Smashing Pumpkins), along with a healthy dose of Israeli rock (Aviv Gefen, Erez Lev Ari).

BRAINWAVES - 7pm Jerusalem time tonight (Wednesday, August 31st) - followed immediately at 9pm by MAYA'S MUSIC OF THE NIGHT - Maya is baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!!

Yes, that's right - our beloved DJ Maya is back from New York (where she fled during The 9 Days of Jerry) and ready to rock your world. Maya (who so far refuses to use Facebook except for the occasional post within Radio Free Nachlaot's FB Fan Page during her shows) sends us the following cryptic yet intriguing message by email:

"Tonight we begin the new season with a musical journey of our own. tonight we will have threesome. Thats right. I bet you want to find out what I mean. only one way to do that, tune in tonight."

OK Maya, what exactly DO you mean by that? What REALLY happened in New York? I guess the only way to find out is to listen. Maya at 9pm - it's going to be quite a night on the radio!

You may note that it's very unlikely you'll be hearing any Grateful Dead from Brian OR Maya! That's ok, you know you'll hear some later - and some Shlomo - gevaldt, we're "Where Shlomo Meets Jerry" but we're where Pearl Jam meets Peter Gabriel, too. That's the beauty of it.

Enjoy the musical ride today!
