Tamar Yonah
Tamar Yonah hosts the most popular English speaking radio talk-show in Israel: 'The Tamar Yonah Show'. She informs people of the political changes taking place in the world and how it affects us. Tamar covers the news, as well as interviews respected authors, journalists, and politicians. You'll be exposed to the burning issues facing Israel and be able to call into the show. Tamar is the daughter of a Holocaust survivor. Her father survived the Nazi brutalities and after liberation, made his way to the shores of the British Palestine Mandate, where again fighting for his survival, fought in Israel's war of Independence. This made a great impression on her life and she too has been fighting for Israel by serving in the Israeli army & air force, and afterwards by becoming an activist for Israel and the Jewish nation. Email Tamar at: Tamar@IsraelNationalRadio.com and add her on Facebook at: 'Tamar Yonah'...

On this week's Eyshet Chayil Show, we discussed the joyous month of Adar, with tips on increasing your happiness in the happiest month of the Jewish year.

I found a great timeline for Adar on Wikipedia, the ultra-prolific reference site.  Check it out!  Almost every day of Adar has an interesting event which took place during the month - very informative.

Just for added fun, I'm including a recipe for Hamantaschen from Chabad:

Tasty Hamataschen

4 cups flour
4 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup margarine, softened
1 Tbsp. Orange juice
2 tsps. Baking powder
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
1 tsp. Orange rind

FILLINGS
1 pound strawberry or apricot preserves

Preheat oven to 350°.

Grease cookie sheets.

Place all ingredients in a large mixer bowl and beat together. You may add a drop more juice or flour, depending on consistency of dough. Roll dough into a ball. Divide into four parts.

Proceed to assemble and bake according to Hamantashen illustrated.
