DEADICATE A Love Song for Tonight's Show!

Boker tov, it's February 14th and that date rings a bell ... I can't remember exactly what or why but I'm thinking about chocolates and lace doilies ... true, we don't have "Valentine's Day" here in Israel. We have Tu b'Av - but that's not until summer! Baby, it's cold outside. Maybe we need some love to keep us warm (and bring us hot chocolate).

Tonight at 8pm on our "Not For Drag Queens Only Show Tunes Show" we'll be playing MY FAIR LADY, which is as romantic as it gets for those who adhere to the Pygmalion version of love as giving one's self over to another to be made over into the image of an impossible ideal. Gee, wherever did we get such an idea?

So we're asking you, our loyal friends and fans, to DEADICATE a song to the One You Love. Send your DEADICATIONS to: and we'll read them on-air tonight after 9pm Jerusalem time.
For those who prefer the down-and-dirty version of romance, we're playing AEROSMITH "Unplugged" at 12:30pm today. Our "Israeli Soul" Afternoon musical lineup includes NESHAMA CARLEBACH and HABANOT NECHAMA.

Of course nothing says "I Love You" like some good TORAH.
We'll enjoy some "Temple Talk" with Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven at 1:45pm, Rav Sholom Brodt of Nachlaot's Yeshiva Simchat Shlomo at 3:30pm and Rebbetzin Rena Richman's "Bat Melech" Series continues with "The 10 Commandments: The Inside Story" at 5pm.

From 5:30pm until 8pm we'll continue into the evening with music from Reb Shlomo and REBBESOUL - Lorelai's two favorite RebbeSoul Classics - "Fringe of Blue" and "Rebbe-Soul-O." 

9pm - YOUR LOVE SONG DEADICATIONS (but this show won't happen unless you email us at: and send us your DEADICATIONS!!!

However you like your love, we're serving it up all day and all night long right here on Radio Free Nachlaot. Show us some love, why don't ya?

Good Shabbos, Good Shabbos

Good Shabbos, Good Shabbos Everybody!
The week is rapidly flowing into Shabbos - Baruch Hashem -- 'cause busy aint the word for it!  As you all know, our organic, homegrown, multicultural science project has been growing by leaps and bounds.  Just review the past week of blog-entries and you'll see that we have moved into "Video Radio". It's kind of like peeking behind the screen of Radio Free Nachlaot and watching what you're hearing - scary, isn't it?
Anyway, Shabbos is coming - time to turn all the mics, cameras and computers off and recharge!
And what a parsha when it comes to recharging - Tetzave - Oil and Spices. The Bais Yaakov says that when there is no Koach left we need the Spices to be recharged.  When do we know there's no Koach left? not when we're exhausted, but when we see that all is nullified before the Creator - which is Oil - the source of Fire -- so when we are connected on the Oil level, we can breathe the spices and be re-invigorated and recharged - just enough to carry on!  Think about it -- we light Shabbos Candles (often with oil) when Shabbos begins, and then we make Havdala with spices, to restore us from the weakness caused when the Neshama Yetaira (extra Shabbos Neshama) leaves us - when Shabbos ends. It's all about the Oil and Spices. Hey, this sounds like a pefect intro for our friend Avrohoh Sand -- Mister Oil and Spices, himself!!!
Anyway, Shabbos is Coming. Enjoy it!
Good Shabbos, Good Shabbos!!!

Now, lest you be wondering what's cooking after Shabbos....
Motzoei Shabbos - Melave Malke on the Radio -- Shlomo meets Saturday Night.

Sunday Night - 8PM - 11PM - Sunday Night Live with Steve and Lorelai, this week featuring Shmuel Karo from Acharit Hayamim.

Monday Night; (Not for Drag Queens Only) "Show Tunes" Show -- Lorelai will play music for you thatYour Mother Should Know!

Tuesday - 11AM - 1PM -Maya is on the Radio!
4:00 PM - a visit from Dovid Levine to talk about project MATZAV - his project to create a Homeless Shelter in Jerusalem,
8-11PM -  It's Only Rock and Roll (but I like it) - Steve's Rock and Roll Extravaganza -- Rock and Roll the way you need to hear it - with maybe even a live guest or two and some jamming to boot!

Wednesday -- 9PM - 11PM -- Maya brings her brand of Rock and Roll to the night time air waves.

Thursday - 2:00 PM - Heart to Heart with Lorelai and special guests
Thursday - 4:00 PM - the Returning Light with Lorela and Benzion Lehrer
Thursday - 7:30 PM - Rebbe Nachman Chabura with R' Ozer Bergman
and then it's 8:30 and time to start the h'ors d'ouvres cause at 10 PM we start "Cookin' for Shabbos."
Good Shabbos, Good Shabbos, all over again!

Thursday LIVE with Radio Free Nachlaot

We are having a full day at Radio Free Nachlaot - live programming, exciting guests, great Torah, and in keeping with the Adar theme, we also know ANYTHING can happen - and usually does - on a Thursday! At 12:30pm we're expecting our beloved rabbi Chaim Richman, Director of the International Department of the Temple Institute, to bring us a special message from his recent trip to the U.S.

Then at 2pm our fellow talk-show host ("The Afternoon Schmooze" on Rusty Mike Radio) Nettie Feldman joins Lorelai for "Heart to Heart."   Imagine two intelligent, experienced women of the world who are both radio talk show hosts sitting around talking - it will be BETTER than Oprah meets Diane Sawyer or "The View" (MUCH MUCH better than "The View" by anyone's standards!)

At 4pm Benzion Eliyahu Lehrer and Lorelai invite you to step into the light with "The Returning Light," their show about the weekly Parsha in light of the Jewish year, the Hebrew calendar, Chassidus and the Zohar. It's a wild ride but worth sticking around for! Check out Benzion's site The Returning Light.

7:30pm tonight we're going to attempt yet another great leap forward in technology and broadcasting. Yes we will be broadcasting (as always) Ozer Bergman's Thursday Night Rebbe Nachman Chebura, live from Rehov Betzalel 23"A" (and you are MOST welcome to join us there in person). In addition to our regular radio broadcast we're going to attempt to broadcast live streaming video of the class itself via Lorelai's iPhone - because if anyone can do it, Rebbe Nachman can - but Lorelai will have to do a LOT of hibbodidut today to make it happen. Will we pull it off? Will Lorelai have TIME to do enough hibbodidut today? Have you SEEN her schedule, where is she going to get an extra hour in-between ANYTHING??? Wait and see - just stay tuned all day, enjoy the programming and cheer for us as we're cheering for you - GO, TEAM!

Wednesday is Mit-Voch - Mid Week.  It's not really Shabbos yet, but we do start saying "Good Shabbos, Good Shabbos" on Wednesday, because just in case last Shabbos is starting to wear off, we have next Shabbos coming quick to excite us, and lift us up.
...and while we're breathing, we should take a look around us, and just check out what the Heck is going on!
Radio - Video - Video Radio - Streaming - Broadcasting - Real Time - All over the World - Music, Torah, talk -- it's all going on people, and it can only get better!  That's right. Radio Free Nachlaot is just getting started.  So keep in touch people - keep listening, and watching, and keep spreading the word around the whole wide world that Radio Free Nachlaot is your address for Intenet radio and tv!
I guess i can say that we'll C Ya on the Radio, and you can C Us on the Video!
