OR Filters With Excel Cube Functions

Chris Webb shows how to build an OR filter in Power Pivot:

Now, imagine that you want a report with the Sales Amount measure on columns and Years on rows, and you want to filter the data so that you only see values for Mondays in July or Wednesdays in September.

I’ve never used Excel’s Cube Functions.  Looks like something to add to the to-learn pile.
