There's so much magic in sitting in a radio station, flirting with the microphone, playing music while interacting with the listeners....If these were the medieval times, I would have been accused of being a witch and burned on the stake. By the way, totally worth it :)
So tonight we'll dedicate two hours only to music. No news, no commercials, no distractions. Only music and everything it makes us feel. 21-23pm (Jerusalem time), with Maya
LETS MAKE MAGIC

"What used to be a house of cards, Has turned into a reservoir...
Save the tears that were waterfalling, Let's go swim tonight, darling....
And once outside the undertow, Just you and me, and nothing more...
If not for love, I would be drowning, I've seen it work both ways But I am up riding high amongst the waves..."/ Pearl Jam
This up coming Monday night, wont be the first time, I'm doing a Pearl Jam special on the radio-and it wont be the last. But...it's the first time debuting their new album. After 4 long years, Pearl Jam finally released a new album and it kicks ass :)
How i missed that feeling of excitement that always comes when a new album comes out. The waiting and the anticipation that drives you wild with wanting. Going through the c.d. booklet, the smell of a new c.d. The art work and the lyrics. Ah-their's no sensation to compare with this.
So, all of you jam heads, it's time to put on the flannel shirt and tune in to RadiofreeNachlaot, this Monday, 21 of October, 21-23pm (Jerusalem time) and enjoy a musical journey with Pearl Jam.

I was in the 7th grade, 12, and "Keep the Faith" was out in all it's glory. I was raised on music since birth, so i wasn't new to the music world but Bon Jovi with this album-well, it was my first as my own! A teenager, in a very difficult and confusing time in my life, from girl to a young woman, this album was the soundtrack to my transition. It was the first music that i chose for myself, that defined me. I had a huge Bon Jovi poster above my bed, in black and white and Jon never looked sexier. A few years later "Always" came out and it became the anthem to broken hearts everywhere. I knew it by heart and sang it everywhere.
A few weeks ago, i watched "Inside Actors Studio" with Bon Jovi. It's was great to see them on the show but the editing took a lot from the show and it was too short, not satisfying enough at all. It's a good thing a have a radio show, where i can have a Bon Jovi special for 2 hours non stop and have my way with their music...
This Wednesday night, 24.7.13 on RFN radio, 21-23pm(Jerusalem time)
we'll have a musical journey with Bon Jovi. We'll rock, dance, reminisce, fantasize about Jon...and have a lot of fun!!! See ya, Maya

So here i was on my way home from a government office, filthy from bureaucracy (which is always a pleasure...). And then, i saw a beacon of hope, a light at the end of the tunnel-"The eighth note". A music shop In Jerusalem, the equivalent to the British H.M.V,. I had to stop there on my home to cleanse my self. While cruising through the rows of the c.d., i saw something that I've wanted for a long long time, and...it was on sale!!! The Led Zeppelin unplugged from 1994. When Robert Plant and Jimmy Page were asked to do an unplugged show for MTV, they said "sure, why not". But unlike all the other mere mortals, they didn't do it in N.Y., in the MTV unplugged studios...no, they went to London and Morocco, and brought singers from Egypt. One woman singer in particular, made me catch my breath- Najma Akhtar, who sings with Plant, on "The Battle of Evermore".
I came home and started to play the album, and from the first sound of the first song, which is "Nobody's fault but mine", I got chills up and down my spine, and just couldn't move or speak. Everything froze in time. It's Led Zeppelin in reincarnation, totally rediscovered them selves after all those years.
I knew right there and then, that it's my duty to bring that joy and discovery to you! This Monday night, May 6.13, on RFN radio, with me-Maya, 21-23pm(Jerusalem time).
