"The Hope Merchant" Author Adam Berkowitz Interview on RFN

"Heart to Heart with Lorelai" is back with a new episode!

Airing at 6:30pm Israel time on Wednesday, November 26th, Lorelai interviews Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz, author of the new "magical realism" novel "The Hope Merchant".

Is it "magical realism" to write a novel about the workings of a hidden tzadik amongst us? It's a little like the now-defunct TV series "Touch", a little like Gabriel Garcia Marquez's "1000 Years of Solitude" and a lot like something the author is calling "Tikkun Olam Literature".

Listen to this recording HERE

Check out the book (available on Amazon - click HERE)

Enjoy the interview!

You Say It's Our (Fifth) Birthday....!!!

Rosh Chodesh Kislev Tov!

Tov M'od, in fact - it's Radio Free Nachlaot's 5th Birthday!

Join us as we celebrate our Birthday Month on the radio all month long (yeah, we like to milk it!)

Streaming the best music, talk & Torah 24/6 from Jerusalem to the World for the last five years, Gevaldt!

 Give a big Mazal Tov Shout-out to the RFN Crew!
Papa Radio Steve Levine
Mama Radio Lorelai Kude
DJ Maya Queen of Monday Night Radio
Tzadekis Gadolah & DJ Rena Meriash-levine
Brainiac "Brainwaves" Brian Blum
"Jerusalem Stories" Producers & Creators Jay & Renee Garfinkel...
and so so many more friends who have joined us on-air over the last 5 years, helping to make Radio Free Nachlaot the best Internet radio station in the world! 

 Here are 5 reasons why we're awesome: 
1) We broadcast 24/6 and shut down for Shabbos. No automatic loop play, nothing. Dead air = Kiddush HaShem! 
2) ALL our music is hand-programmed. None of this Pandora-ish pick a genre and we'll fill in the blanks for you. Steve Levine and Lorelai Kude take turns programming (throwing the stream back and forth between us every 12 hours) and we're sensitive to the MOOD of the moment, what's happening in the Parsha, in the news, in our lives and the lives of those we care about, etc. - and the music reflects that. 
3) We don't have advertisers or play ads during our programming because we wanted to build a listener-supported model. Is it working? You tell us! Both Steve and I have other jobs that pay the bills and we do it anyway. 
 4) We're a safe place. When things are stressful you can always listen to other Internet radio stations which broadcast news from Israel - we broadcast LOVE from Israel. You won't get hurt listening to our radio station (unless you're allergic to the Grateful Dead). and finally 
5) We've created a world-wide community of listeners who have become friends in real life. You write to us. You visit us, we visit you! It's more than interactive, it's RELATIONSHIP RADIO. Yeah we rock!

Lazer Lloyd "King of Israeli Blues Rock" Coming to San Francisco!

Gevaldt! Our beloved holy brother Lazer Lloyd Blumen, known and loved universally (Reva l'Sheva, Yood) is coming to spread the holy sparks of Blues Rock to the Bay Area!

Lazer Lloyd will play two shows at Biscuits and Blues in San Francisco on Sunday, November 23rd (7pm and 9pm). At only $20 per ticket, you'll want to see both shows!

Radio Free Nachlaot's JET BLUE BLUES HOUR (Wednesdays 1pm Pacific/4pm Eastern/11pm Israel time, sponsored by JetBlue Airways) will rebroadcast this show on November 26th, but IT'S SO MUCH BETTER TO BE ABLE TO BE THERE IN PERSON! Join RFN's own Lorelai Kude and a bunch of merry Blues revelers at Biscuits and Blues on November 23rd!

Lazer Lloyd, Israel's King of Blues Rock, brings to Biscuits and Blues on Sunday Nov. 23th fresh sound, new songs, and deep roots with all-star backing from Felton Crews and Kenny Coleman, the world famous rhythm section of the Chicago Blues Kings. Lazer is an Israeli singer/songwriter and an international recording artist influenced by blues, gospel, southern rock, and the great guitar traditions of power and groove from Hendrix to Wes Montgomery. His music takes the audience into his world from the tender moments of a traveling musician in "By Your Side", to a man struggling with life "Talk", he opens hearts with "world soul groove" on "Way Down" and "Back Porch" and then rocks with intensity and joy on irresistible tunes like "Good Man Down", "Set My Soul Free", and "Rockin' in the Holy Land".

The Lazer Lloyd Band, which has successfully crossed over into the Israeli mainstream music scene, been featured playing live on Israeli Channel 8 TV’s “Guitar Heroes” hosted by Tal Friedman, Channel 10′s “London and Kirschenbaum”, 88FM with Gedi Livneh, as well as on Yoav Kutner’s Army Radio program. Kutner commented, “From the moment the sounds of his blues guitar reached the air it was completely clear that this is an international-level guitarist. His shows are worth every minute. One of the great musicians.”

Coming to San Francisco fresh from his second tour of Russia, Lazer has opened for such artists as Johnny Winter, Prince, Snowy White, and Olie Brown. Lazer Lloyd's singing and guitar playing has been honed to perfection by his constant touring in Israel and he takes it to the next level with the deep groove and power backing of Chicago stars bass player (Felton Crews) and drummer (Kenny Coleman). They will be playing a riveting set of songs previewing Lazer's upcoming 2015 album of new music and some of his greatest classic tunes.

Washington Post: "One of the most popular blues singers and guitarists in Israel is Lazer Lloyd"

"Lazer Lloyd’s show was intense never taking his foot off the pedal and demonstrating guitar playing reminiscent to the great players of the 60s." - Bruce Maltby, Owner Violet's Venue, Barrie, Ontario.

“This is the best Rock N Roll Blues that I have seen in Israel. Amazing, you have to see him live.” Ben Red, 88FM (Israeli radio)

“Lloyd’s guitar skills are impeccable, along with a rich, vocal delivery. A consummate musician, writer and storyteller.” Nashville Blues Society

“He handles his guitar like it was an extension of his lanky, but sturdy body, and the glorious noise that it emits emerges directly from his soul. He’s the best guitarist in Israel.” Jerusalem Post
