Over the last several months, Israel Hour Radio has kept you up to date with the latest Israeli music, born of pain and pride during this time of war. It’s reminiscent of another time of war – the Yom Kippur War of 1973. It began 50 years (nearly to the day) before the horrific attacks of October 7, 2023, and like our current conflict, Israel was taken by surprise on one of its most sacred days of the year. Israel suffered many losses during that war, and much of the music released the following year reflected that sad reality. So this week on Israel Hour Radio, we bring you the most popular Israeli music of 1974, in the aftermath of the Yom Kippur War. No, it’s not all sad, and not even all meaningful. In fact, some of the songs you’ll hear are just plain fun. But it will help you connect to the mood of Israel in the wake of a very difficult time in its history, and we have a feeling you’ll find yourself singing along with many of the nostalgic Israeli songs you’ll hear. (Original Air Date: March 3, 2024)
