The 9 Weeks of Shlomo - Week One - Shlomo's 16th Yartzeit (16 Cheshvan 5771) - Special Guest Betzalel Philip Edwards

Radio Free Nachlaot -well, either we don't know when to quit OR we just have an overabundance of great ideas.

We always say about RFN that we're "where Shlomo meets Jerry," and remembering the wildly successful The 9 Days of Jerry we did August 1st - 9th celebrating the life and music of Jerry Garcia, we could do no less for Reb Shlomo, could we?

It was great to check the dates of his yartzeit (16 Cheshvan) and his Hebrew birthday (18 Teves) and - counting with baited breath - discover that YES, there is exactly 9 Weeks between the two! How could we NOT do a 9 Weeks of Shlomo tribute???

We kicked it off Moetzi Shabbos, 16 Cheshvan (October 23rd) with a live in-studio visit from Rav Betzalel Philip Edwards, who not only knew Shlomo during the last 5 years of Shlomo's life (1990 - 1995) but played in Shlomo's band and even made Aliyah to Israel on the same plane that Shlomo was on (really!).

The archived recording of our interview (in two parts) is available from our DOWNLOAD page OR you can CLICK HERE FOR PART ONE and then when you're ready, CLICK HERE FOR PART TWO.

We're going to be building this site piece by piece over the next 9 weeks - accumulating pictures, recordings and stories from friends who KNEW Shlomo in real life - it'll be a special place, we invite you to visit again and again - and LISTEN to Radio Free Nachlaot - we're internet radio live 24/6 from Nachlaot, Jerusalem's coolest (and funkiest!) neighborhood - we ARE "where Shlomo meets Jerry," and we hope you're as excited about meeting Shlomo right here as we are!
