Radio broadcasts don't respect borders or walls. Told for the very first time - the real story of 93.6 RAM FM, a pioneering English-language radio station in Palestine/Israel. Starting from the ground up in a most difficult geo-political environment, to the eventual launch, and the impact it made by sharing narratives of the "other" and with music. RAM FM was breaking boundaries and unfurling bridges of common ground, at a time when walls of separation were being constructed.
The story, which includes the author's return to radio to be the host of the ONLY political talk show that brought both sides to talk on a common platform in a neutral language (English) is most unique. He created a marriage of diplomacy and radio, charting his journey from being an Ambassador to a DJ/talk show host and eventually a Radio Peace Envoy.
The story of the huge audience the station built, the positive impact it made, the struggle to remain 'on air' and its eventual demise is told for the first time. Rising from its ashes is the story of the birth of - Radio Nissa FM, the first women radio station in the Arab world - which today provides a voice to empower women in a male-dominated society in Palestine. Selected photographs included.
