 FRIENDS! Gevaldt, it's Radio Free Nachlaot's 13th Annual 9 DAYS OF JERRY!

Radio Free Nachlaot is 100% listener-supported nonprofit internet radio, streaming 24/6 from Jerusalem to the world! Our annual 9 Days of Jerry, celebrating the life, music, and legacy of Jerry Garcia z"l, is now in its 13th year, and 13 is Hebrew Gematria for "ahavah" which means LOVE. 

We'll be broadcasting all things Jerry this year from August 8 through 18 (the 9DOJ is "delayed" this year due to Tisha b'Av) and asking for your support! This is our only fundraising effort - once a year we ask our worldwide listening audience to throw some LOVE into our virtual guitar case and keep us on the air another year. 


Steve Levine and Lorelai Kude, co-founders of Radio Free Nachlaot, keep the stream operating 24/6 so that YOU can enjoy the greatest music all the time (except for Shabbos & Chaggim!), and we're proud to be part of a global community of Jewish Deadheads (and Deadheads of all sorts!), sending LOVE from the Land of Israel via our little "homegrown" internet radio station.

Gevaldt, it's Radio Free Nachlaot's 12th Annual 9 Days of Jerry! All Jerry and Jerry-centric programming, 24/6, from August 1 - 9 (excluding Shabbos), Isru Jerry August 10. It's our annual Fundraiser! CLICK HERE TO CONTRIBUTE


We only ask you for money once a year, and it is your generous donations during the 9 Days of Jerry which cover our operational costs and keep us streaming the best music 24/6 from Jerusalem (and Berkeley) to our worldwide listening audience! Our modest goal this year of raising $2000 goes to cover our operational costs for Undisclosed Studio B in Jerusalem and Undisclosed Mobile Studio A, currently in Berkeley. 


Please throw some change into our virtual guitar case and keep us going another year - we depend on you! 


This year our special guests DJ's include:


Matt Turk & C Lanzbom from Deadgrass

Shaul Magid

Bill Bentowsky

Lee Neckemeyer

Noah Munroe Lehrman

and, G*d willing, Rabbi Moshe Pesach Geller


We're not the best at what we do; we're literally the only ones crazy enough to do it!

The 11th Annual 9 Days of Jerry, "The Kavod / Covid Edition", Are Upon Us, Gevaldt!

Radio Free Nachlaot  is the world's ONLY 100% Listener-Supported Jewish Hippie Internet Radio Station broadcasting 24/6 from Jerusalem to a World-Wide Audience of Deadheads and Other Music Lovers!

Founded in November 2009, Radio Free Nachlaot (named for Nachlaot, Jerusalem's own Haight-Ashbury) celebrates the 9 Days of Jerry by playing all Jerry / Grateful Dead / Dead-centric / Jerry-adjacent music during the "9 Days" - the "Days Between" Jerry Garcia's birthday August 1st and the anniversary of his passing August 9th.  The rest of the year we play the Grateful Dead and all your favorite Jewish, Israeli, Rock, Jazz, Blues, Bluegrass/Jewgrass, Indie and World Music 24/6 on our non-commercial, 100% listener-supported internet radio stream.

Now we've arrived at our 11th ANNUAL 9 DAYS OF JERRY, during this immensely weird year of Covid. Our response is to mount THE KAVOD EDITION of the 9DOJ - including Zoom shows broadcast on RFN's Facebook page featuring special guest DJ's to help sweeten the decree by turning "covid" into kavod (honor) for what we like to call, "The Torah of Jerry".

This year we will host Special Guest DJ's via Zoom, broadcasting through RFN's FB page, so be sure to "like" Radio Free Nachlaot so you can access those broadcasts.
Some of the folks we have lined up to share their favorite Jerry Garcia / Grateful Dead / Dead-Adjacent / Jerry-Centric stylings with us include: Moshe Pesach Geller, Noah Munro Lehrman, Shaul Magid, Jerilyn Brandelius, Bill Bentkowsky, Lee Neckameyer, and more!

We have only ONE fundraiser per year and THIS IS IT! Please BE KIND and throw some change into our virtual guitar case, and help keep us on the air another year! Your contributions will be used to pay for our overhead/streaming services/equipment upgrades.

We can't do this without you, folks. We are GRATEFUL for your support! 
We're not the best at what we do - but we ARE the only ones who do it!

With Immense Gratitude to HKBH and to ALL our World-Wide Fan-Base Who Have Lovingly Supported Us ALL THESE YEARS....

"See you on the radio" - and on Zoom!
