It's Bon Jovi's turn to rock the house tonight and it's about time too! I've been a Bon Jovi fan since i was 12.5. They were the first band that i ever chose for my self, by my self. With "Keep the Faith" full volume in my ears and a huge Bon Jovi poster in black and white above my bed-the sky was the limit. And they are still around rockin' the world upside down. Tonight we'll have a musical journey with Bon Jovi, the old hits, the new and everything in between. 21-23pm (Jerusalem time), with Maya.

Celebrating the 9 Days between Jerry's birthday and his yartzeit, RFN's 9 Days of Jerry August 1st - 9th, 2013 will be broadcasting our All Jerry and Jerry-Related Programming 24/6 (except Shabbos Jerry, of course).

Woodstock in July???!!!!

So what's this about Woodstock in July? I mean, Woodstock? What about Charlie Brown, and Lucy, and Linus, and Shroeder... I mean why just Woodstock?
Oh, you say, not Woodstock, 

That's Right! You remember Woodstock!
 3 Days of Love, Peace, Mud and Music....
But wait, wasn't that in August of 1969?
So, what is this Woodstock V in Jerusalem, 2013?
Well, it's as Libby said, Love, Peace, Music and no mud....
and this year it's in July.
July 18th, as a matter of fact -- 
....and you're going to be there, RIGHT?????

....and if this doesn't tell the whole story, listen to RFN between 11:00 PM and 1:00 AM for our Woodstock in July special, featuring a FREE TICKET give-a-way, one each hour if you're the first one to  answer our Woodstock Quiz.
Sounds like fun?
You Betcha.
We'll be playing music from the Original Woodstock Festival, and from the Woodstock RevIVal that took place just last year.
You don't want to miss it.
C Ya on the Radio!!!!!
(and C Ya at the Festival!!!!)


The happy days are back. Yes, it was very hard without music for 9 days. I almost had my self committed in the Cuckoo's Nest. But...luckily for you and me, that wasn't necessary after all cause I'm back tonight with great music as always. Rock, Indie rock, 80'S and a great general feeling of euphoria :))) So the musical journey will begin at 21pm  (Jerusalem time), and you are all invited.

9th of Av is Upon us.

Tisha B'av. Again. ....and what's there to say.  We've been saying it all week.  all month.  We don't cry for what we had and lost. We cry for what we don't have - that which we have not yet been worthy enough to create. Worthy enough.  "Zoche."  Having Zchut, Zchuyot.  What is it? Mitzvah Point? Stars on some chart in Heaven - you get enough stars and you can pass go, collect your 200 Silver coins and proceed to Olam Habaah?
You know, I think it's the No Pain, No Gain theory.  The less we work at something, the less we'll acheive that which we were shooting for.  Comfortably Numb? Able to see the horizon without any compunction about never getting there?  Hey, I work hard. I know what it's like to be tired and want to just buzz out to some visual entertainment.  No thinking required.  I know all about that!
But you know, beyond making excuses for ourselves, I think tisha b'av comes along and takes away the excuses, blows our cover wide open.  We're not eating and drinking and not learning, and not having the "simcha side of life" because we didn't do the work we (each and everyone of us has our job) needed to do.
so, we'll fast.
I hope we'll take it seriously and think about IT.
Radio Free Nachlaot will try to help us along by continuing to play Torah Lectures related to the 9 Days and Tisha b'av right up until mid-day on the 10th of AV.
...and then.....well, let's get there, and we'll tell you all about it.

now, it's only 4:25. Maybe Geulah will come in the few hours we have left.
maybe, just maybe......

Good Shabbos, Good Shabbos.

You know, Shlomo (Carlebach) says ( and I am paraphrasing) that Jews are amazing people - no one like us - one day we're on the floor crying (9th of Av) and the next minute we're up and singing and dancing - (tu b'av - 15th of Av) (I like to say, Shabbos Nachamu!) - so, even though we are erev Shabbos Chazon - about to enjoy the oneg of Shabbos prior to going back to the Aveilut (mourning) of the end of the 9 days and Tisha B'av (9th of Av) i think that it's fitting to think about the singing and the dancing, and what better place to sing and dance than at Kraft Stadium, Woodstock Festival Number 5 !!!!! (even if I'm not performing there, and RFN is not broadcasting!!!!!)
please read on, people!

As a lot of poets said: There are times for this and times for that. These days, i feel the need for us to search within, through the haze and the noise around us. Of course we need music to inspire us to do just that, a musical journey to lead us to the inside. And just what do some of the artists that will lead the journey tonight, have to say: Queen "People don't know it but every time our song is played, Freddie is with us in the room"

S.C "I love RFN radio, you don't interrupt in the middle  of my songs"                               

P.J.H" All of my songs come from deep within, where there is light and darkness. Its all from the same place".                                                                                             

                                J.L. "Seriously, just     
                    give peace a chance already".

Tonight, 21-23 pm (Jerusalem time), with Maya
