Radio Salaam Shalom

A new radio station which claims to be the first in the UK to be run jointly by Muslims and Jews will make history Thursday night when it begins broadcasting for the first time.

Bristol-based Radio Salaam Shalom has attracted media interest from around the world by bringing the two faiths together for the groundbreaking venture.

The station, which will be broadcast over the internet, will feature both Jewish and Muslim presenters and promises a lively mixture of music, talk and feature-led programmes.

While Radio Salaam Shalom hopes to focus on the faiths often overlooked similarities and shared culture, bosses have also vowed not to "duck" the potentially divisive issues over Palestine and Israel during live discussions.

Farooq Siddique, a presenter and member of the Bristol Muslim Cultural Society, said he hoped Radio Salaam Shalom would help improve community relations.
