WOW, WE SCORED!!! Our Interviews with MICKEY HART, CRYSTAL MONEE HALL and Incredible Records Founder JONATHON LIPSIN Sunday Sept. 1st at 7pm Israel time!

Friends - We're still HIGH from the MICKEY HART BAND concert in Jerusalem which took place at the magical, magnificent amphitheater venue on Jerusalem's Mt. Scopus, overlooking the Judean desert all the way to the Dead Sea.
Undoubtedly it was the concert of a lifetime for Israel-based Deadheads, who welcomed Mickey Hart, the first member of the Grateful Dead ever to play in Israel (and, by the way, also the first and so far only Dead member to play in both Egypt AND Israel!).
The revelation of the evening was Tony Award-winning vocalist CRYSTAL MONEE HALL, who embodied Shechina with her amazing voice, bringing it down and giving it over like it's never been done before!
We'll be airing our exclusive interviews with both Mickey Hart and Crystal Monee Hall on Radio Free Nachlaot's "Sunday Night Live" show Sunday, September 1st at 7pm Israel time.
This is "appointment listening," people! Tune in to hear Steve and Lorelai live from Undisclosed Studio B in Jerusalem, discussing the concert in-depth and playing both interviews, both of which will later be available for download from our web site.
"Sunday Night Live" on Radio Free Nachlaot will also feature Lorelai's interview with Jonathon Lipsin, founder of the legendary Incredible Records, who flew into Israel from Switzerland for the Mickey Hart concert and has been hanging out in the Holy Land for a couple of weeks.
Jonathon Lipson has more music industry stories to tell than there are ears to hear them in the entire human race. This man is like the Forest Gump of the music industry - the likes of Paul Robeson and Pete Seger were regulars at his parents dinner table in Toronto where he grew up "a red diaper baby," secular Zionist turned Israeli soldier, entrepreneur and founder of what Leonard Cohen called "The Greatest Record Store in the World."
 Read more about Jonathan Lipson in this article about the closing of his store after 30 years, and listen to our interview with him on "Sunday Night Live," Sunday September 1st, 7pm Israel time (9am Pacific, 10am Mountain, 11am Central, 12Noon Eastern) on

The 9 DAYS OF JERRY Continue - With Love from "Jerry Day" in San Francisco!

This is the first year that Lorelai and Steve haven't been together for the 9 Days of Jerry.  But as hashkacha (Divine Providence) would have it,  Lorelai is visiting her family in the Bay Area this summer, and was able to go to the 11th Annual Jerry Day Celebration at the Jerry Garcia Amphitheater in San Francisco.

What a wonderful day, surrounded by so much color and so much love - and what a trip it was to tell people about RFN and how astonished, delighted and positive people were to discover that there is the world's most hard-core Dead fan base in the Holy Land!

Lorelai interviewed Jerilyn Lee Brandelius, author of the soon to be re-released "Grateful Dead Family Album," (and former wife of Mickey Hart). Also got to meet MOUNTAIN GIRL (what an honor!) and hope to be interviewing her this week as well.

Stu Allen and the Mars Hotel were AMAZING, and of course Melvin Seals and the JGB were the sweetest. But that's not all- immediately after the show, Lorelai was whisked away by her (too modest to be named) magic fairy godmother to Shoreline Amphitheater, to see BOB DYLAN!!! Who opened for Bob but My Morning Jacket (at least half of their set was Grateful Dead cover tunes) and Wilco - joined on stage by BOB WEIR - they did "Ripple" into "St. Stephen" into "When I Paint My Masterpiece." Lorelai for sure thought she was already in heaven.

Bob Dylan blew away the house - it was a gevaldik show - so wonderful to be able to be a part of this love party!

Lorelai reports:

I must report that Bob looked and sounded GREAT. I was surprised but not surprised - after all, it's his most Gemini trait (constant change).

I was sitting next to a metal head-banger who LOVES Dylan and said: "This is my 6th Dylan show and I've figured out he does it on purpose just to f*ck with us," (meaning he sometimes does a less than perfect show just to keep us guessing).

The Set List:
Things Have Changed
Love Sick
? (have no idea) probably from Bob's new album "Tempest"
Simple Twist of Fate
Ducaine Whistle
She Belongs To Me
? (really have no idea) also probably from "Tempest"
Desolation Row
Blind Willie McTell
Simple Twist of Fate
Summer Days
All Along The Watchtower
Ballad of a Thin Man

The 9 days of Jerry are here and tonight Papa radio (Steve) and Rina Rock Star (Rina), will take me (Maya) under their wing to guide and educate me on what being a "Dead Head" really means!! The stories, the experience, the
devotion and of course the MUSIC. Born in the 80's and raised in the 90's, The Greatful Dead weren't a part of my music upbringing but tonight the wise and the elders of our radio station will fix that. So for all of you who want to be re-educated or just love The Greatful Dead and Jerry Garcia, tonight 21-23pm (Jerusalem time), is for you and me!!!!
