James Taylor’s Fire and Rain Update

Parking issues

There’s a whole lot of me talking too much and not doing a very good job at moderating. It was about the 5th day in a row of a heat wave (about 102 degrees that day. I had never done a podcast with more than one other person before, so I apologize in advance for the looseness of this episode. Still, we did get some good stuff out of this little bull session.

Talkin Bout Israel… and Music

tzach gefenHey there fellow road warriors, siblings of road warriors, parents of road warriors, BFF’s, groupies – and all you good folks who keep us employed…

Got a great show for you!

Today, I’m talking about Israel and music with Tzach Gefen – one half of the team that hosts the TBI Podcast aka Talkin’ Bout Israel – and Stuff with his co-host: Mike Leibsohn

The TBI podcast is perfect for those who are planning to visit Israel, people who may be planning to go for an extended amount of time or those who have made Aliyah or are thinking about it. Maybe you just love Israel, Israeli music, or just want to live the Israeli lifestyle vicariously through Tzach and Michael – a couple of guys that live there, each sharing their own point of view.  (BTW – I noticed they’re doing a Hebrew version, now. At least for the last two episodes).

Tzach and I talked mostly about music. His music. My music, Israeli Music, Irish bars, Japanese music and we might have talked a little about the food, too.

As always… below the show notes on the Show notes page, there are links to all of the things we talked about. If you don’t want any spoilers, don’t look at the links below until you’ve listened to this entire episode. I promise you will be thoroughly entertained.

Usually, I play out most episodes with my original song – I’m Going For a Drive, but today, we’ll use about 30 seconds of guitar and harmonica that Tzach Gefen sent me.
