found music so far in jerusalem

here's some artists/music I've found (so far) from checking out a
nearby music store Music House (keren ha-yesod 25) (mostly classical & jazz, but a smaller
section on other styles) in Jerusalem. there's a music store on Shamai Street too where I later bought more cds.

dj Markey Funk

- I bought his "Beats!!! AMN Manifesto Sound! Vol 1" cd
Beats from AMS Manifesto shows 2003-2004
nice collection of beats. sort of ninja tune / turntablism style if
you're into that. he has some other radio shows recorded & available
for download on the site @

now to take a listen.

The Voice of Peace radio station

my friend from work told me about the Voice of Peace pirate radio
station which was broadcast from a ship which sailed just outside
Israeli borders during 70s-90s. it was a non-profit station and didn't
have ads but had peace messages / jingles. there's a double cd with
some of the jingles and songs from the station. it was really popular
with the youth at the time - some stats say 40% of the population
tuned in, and it reached other countries over certain periods when
they ran off dual transmitters/higher power transmission. my friend
was working/living on a kibbutz at the time and remembers hearing this
station all the time and he has very fond memories of it. he can still
say all the jingles - must have heard them all a thousand times! it
was run by Abie Nathan who has a really interesting history also
including illegally flying over the boarder to present peace messages
to the political leaders. the station had support from around the
world - the djs were mostly British djs.
there's a film about the station called "Abe Nathan – As The Sun Sets"
by Eytan Harris - I haven't seen this but I think it'd be really
interesting
