The UK's only dedicated Jewish music and arts radio programme, the SomethingJewish Show has welcomed Ofcom's decision to award London-based arts radio station Resonance104.4fm (www.resonancefm.com) with a five year community radio licence.

Since December 2003, the SomethingJewish Show has been broadcasting an eclectic mix Jewish music once a week every Sunday from 3.30pm to 4.30pm on the UK's only dedicated arts station.
 
"We are delighted that Resonance104.4fm has been awarded its well deserved licence to continue broadcasting," said SomethingJewish co-host Leslie Bunder. "The Jewish community has access to radio through our show and equally important is that as part of a diverse community of presenters and programming, the Jewish community is truly represented as part of that."
 
"We are looking forward to further years of Jewish involvement with Resonance104.4fm and seeing the station grow further its programming and continue providing a real alternative to mainstream broadcasting," Bunder added.
 
"We are thrilled to receive this licence award and we will continue to dedicate ourselves to bold and innovative broadcasting over the course of the next five years," said the Resonance team. "The licence award makes evident that what radio listeners in London want is an intelligent and diverse alternative to mainstream, homogenised broadcasting. Resonance 104.4FM's broadcast content is  as idiosyncratic and as culturally rich as the metropolitan population  to which it broadcasts and this is one of the key factors in our success."
