Happy Birthday Jerry Garcia!

5th Annual 9 DAYS OF JERRY begins on Radio Free Nachlaot.
"Jerry Garcia" by Sheva Chaya

Of course no matter what, the show must go on. RFN's 5th Annual 9 Days of Jerry starts at 1pm Jerusalem time on the 10th of Av (Wednesday August 6th and continues non-stop (except for Shabbos of course) through "Isru Jerry", Friday August 15th.

For those who are not familiar with Radio Free Nachlaot's minhagim, during Jewish leap years when Tisha b'Av occurs during the REAL 9 Days of Jerry (August 1st - 9th) we don't start broadcasting our Jerry and Jerry-related music until after Tisha b'Av is over. This has happened to us so far twice during the last five years and because this year is one of those years on the Jewish Calendar, we have to adjust the start of the 9DOJ for after Tisha b'Av.

Mark your calendars! If the war in Gaza isn't over with, someone should set up GIGANTIC speakers all around Gaza's periphery so the population will be forced to listen to non-stop Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia Band and other Jerry-related music at top volume during the 9DOJ, which will either cause peace to descend upon them (G*d willing) or force them to cast themselves into the sea simply to relieve the aural pressure. Either way, it's a win/win.
