RA­DIO-STA­TION BLUES

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT&ANALYSIS -

Last Sun­day af­ter­noon I thought I would give my sup­port to the new com­mu­nal ra­dio sta­tion, Jcom.

I was im­me­di­ately treated to a dis­cus­sion about a non-kosher restau­rant and treif fish. The con­ver­sa­tion then turned to the bits of Christ­mas that the pre­sen­ters like. They then played a song about a Jewish boy who feels left out of Christ­mas. Half­way through, I was treated to the “F” word three times. Whilst the pre­sen­ters stopped the track quickly and apol­o­gised, they said: “Per­haps we should have lis­tened to it first.”

For years, we have had our 28 days to prove that we can pro­vide a de­cent ra­dio sta­tion, one wor­thy of a per­ma­nent li­cence. If this ama­teur pro­duc­tion is what is put out, no won­der we have failed to es­tab­lish a per­ma­nent sta­tion. Jeremy Le­boff Mead Road, Shen­ley, Herts WD7
