Over, Under, Sideways, Down

That's right. In this Topsy-Turvy Olam Hafuch - upside down world in which we live, I'm going to shake things up a bit.  Tonight - "Cookin' For Shabbos" will start at 9:00 PM 'ish - that's right, our theme song will play at 9:00 Pm -- and we will start cookin' just like it says everywhere our schedule is posted - even though I always start the show at 10 -- well, tonight we start "on time."
...and then, i might disappear, but you won't notice cause the music will be there - you know, just like what happens around 1 or 2 am....but, G-d willing, somewhere around 11:30 pm 'ish guess what - I'll be back!!!!
...and we'll just keep cookin' all night long!
So, that's not so bad, is it? Not too disorienting, I hope.
and, just one more thing.

Did you all take a "Walk in the Garden" last night? I hope so.  But if you missed it, just go to the Download page on our website and listen to Season One - episode 3 whenever you'd like.  You can hear episodes 1 and 2 also, you know. Chazara (review) is not such a bad thing!
Remember, a "Walk in the Garden" is featured every Wednesday night at 8:00 PM.  Join Rabbi Dror Moshe Casuto ( Chut Shel Chesed Yeshiva - Shmuel Hanavi 13, Jerusalem) and Yitzhak (Richard) Millman discuss Rabbi Sholom Arush's sefer, Garden of Peace.  You know people, it's really not about Shalom Bayis, but more about Serving G-d. Check it out!

Now, is there anything else?
coming up:
Cookin' for Shabbos - tonight
NFKO Childrens' Hour - Friday at 2:00
Goin' down the Road to Shabbos - Friday, 3:30 PM 'ish,
We've talked about Walking in the Garden.
We have an Unconfirmed Special guest for Sunday Night Live (Sunday 8:00 PM this week from Studio "B")
Hey, it sounds like Radio Free Nachlaot, doesn't it?
I guess we've covered it all!

C Ya on the Radio!

"They say it's your birthday"

...and IT IS! It's Maya's Birthday - Happy Birthday to YOU!

Now, Maya is an undisclosed **years old - I mean she can disclose it, but not me, no sir!
She of course thinks she's getting old, but I tell you, compared to some of us, she's just a kid!!
However you look at it, it's been a blessing that she found us, or we found her, and that she has found a home here on Radio Free Nachlaot.  I mean, what would Monday Nights be without her!!!

so, of course the question is how will Maya celebrate her birthday? I guess we'll have to wait until Monday at 9:00 PM to find out!!

Until then, about 3:30 PM 'ish we'll play a bit of a birthday set for Maya, just to get her birthday going, cause as Maya would say, her birthday is "coming down upon us!"

Happy Birthday Maya, we love you!
