Abstract (Document Summary)

[Rivka Michaeli]'s loyalty to her long-time employer won out, and she stayed on to host Channel 1's Friday night entertainment program. However, after it became clear that her competition - Dudu Topaz's fast-paced variety show on Channel 2 - was developing into a ratings-grabber, Michaeli was unceremoniously taken off the air by a jittery Channel 1 management. Shortly afterwards, Michaeli and Channel 1 parted ways.

[Ehud Manor], an acclaimed songwriter, translator and broadcaster, has known Michaeli since he traveled with a student folk-dancing group to Turkey in 1960s. Michaeli was the emcee at the performances. As the pair spoke on long bus rides, Michaeli learned of his broad knowledge of popular music.

Manor believes there will always be a place for Michaeli on the entertainment scene. "The reason entertainers have traditionally faded as they got older had a lot to do with the fact they were immigrants, and the next generation was embarrassed about their parents' behavior and their intonations and pronunciation of certain words. But I believe Rivka is part of a generation that is going to change all this. The way I see it, entertainers who were born in this country, like Arik Einstein, like Rivka Michaeli, can go on forever."
