You don’t have to en­joy JCom

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

MICHAEL FREED­LAND, for decades the most prom­i­nent broad­caster in Jewish ra­dio in the UK, to­day makes a blis­ter­ing at­tack on a new com­mu­nity ra­dio sta­tion, JCom, which be­gan in­ter­net broad­cast­ing this week.

Re­view­ing a week of pro­gram­ming, Mr Freed­land, who pre­sented You Don’t Have To Be Jewish for 24 years, calls JCom “a so-called ra­dio sta­tion” whose out­put is “not just poor, but poverty-stricken”.

He com­plains of its “ap­palling am­a­teurism”, sug­gest­ing that JCom’s broad­cast­ers need train­ing be­cause of “tech­ni­cal in­ep­ti­tude.”

Mr Freed­land in­sists that he writes as an es­tab­lished writer and pre­sen­ter who has long ex­pe­ri­ence of what con­sti­tutes Jewish ra­dio pro­grammes.
