I just got back from the grand opening of LionFM 96.1 Radio at Spiritgrow on Balaclava Road. We had a packed house. We all did a ten second countdown launching the first Jewish radio station in Melbourne, Australia, and the excitement in the room was palpable.
My show, the Melbourne Jewish Women's Show, will be a showcase for dynamic Jewish women doing interesting things highlighting their contributions to the community. Hopefully, this will have the effect of dispelling some negative stereotypes of Jewish women, and presenting some of the color of the local Jewish culture to the community at large. Along with that I plan to spread a bit of the light of Torah, and to entertain and inspire my listeners.
The Melbourne Jewish Women's Show airs for the first time tomorrow at noon for one hour and then every two weeks. It will air every second and fourth Monday of the month thereafter, except for Shabbos and Yom Tov. Looking forward to your feedback.
