[Personal update: I don't usually listen to music during the three weeks - but in between news reports on the radio they are playing songs - old ones. The ones they played twenty plus years ago when I was a student in Israel when the Lebanon war started in 1982. David Broza, Arik Einstein, etc. None of the modern stuff they usually play. Interesting to see.]
