TIKKUN OLAM - Healing the World - launches on Lion FM 96.1 to-night


My friend Avraham is itting the airwaves to-night on what, I think, is Melbourne's newest radio station, Lion FM 96.1   Here is his programming info:

I am proud to announce that I'll be hosting an hour-long radio program on "Tikkun Olam" (Healing the World) every Tuesday night, 9.00 pm, on the new frequency, Lion FM 96.1, starting TONIGHT - Tuesday 13 July! For now, the frequency can only be heard in the Melbourne area, but eventually Internet-live listening - and podcasts - are hoping to be available.
 
Tonight's show will focus on Indigenous issues, and feature interviews and music dedicated to Yorta Yorta activist William Cooper (1861-1941)Boonerwrung Elder, Aunty Fay Stewart-Muir, will Welcome us To Country (through the medium of radio!), some William Cooper stories from era 1938 will be narrated - and then I will interview Uncle Boydie Turner, of Shepparton, the 81-year-old grandson of William Cooper himself! 
 
Sydney author Lisa Sarzin, who recently co-wrote with her mother Dr Anne Sarzin, Hand-in-Hand, which tells the story of about 80 Jewish and Indigenous Australians working together, will discuss her book, and read a selection from it - and one of the other people featured, Rabbi Chaim Rosenthal, will discuss why in his Orthodox Synagogue he insists on reciting an "Acknowledgement of Country" at every Sabbath service.
 
If all goes to plan (technically - as this radio station is brand new!), music featured will include selections from Indigenous musicians YothaYindiand Kutcha Edwards. Tonight's music was selected by William Cooper's great-grandson, Kevin Russell.
 
The show may be repeated at other times, as the new radio station has not yet received enough volunteers to produce programs 24 hours a day, 6 days a week (it is not producing content for the Jewish Sabbath, resuming broadcasts on Saturday nights). 
 
For further information, please look at the still-developing websitehttp://www.lionfm.org - and please encourage anyone you know who may be interested (in the MELBOURNE AREA) to tune in tonight at 9pm, future Tuesdays, or in fact, 24/6 - to 96.1 fm.  Future shows will discuss a broad range of themes/topics/guests - and I am keen to receive suggestions that fit in to the "Healing the World" mission of this radio program.
 
I'd love to get your feedback on tonight too, as I'm pretty nervous initially on-air!
 
Hope you enjoy!
