Welcome to J-AIR: Jewish Australia Internet Radio

Since 2012, a group of volunteers have brought to the air, the voice of Melbourne’s Jewish community in all its diversity. This has resulted in the Jewish community of Melbourne now having a voice in four languages on their radio station as well as live streaming on the internet.

J-AIR is a niche broadcasting service bringing Jewish culture, news, analysis, music, comedy, personalities and performers together. Join us in continuing to build this valuable Jewish community asset. J-AIR is committed to diversity and inclusiveness for the Jewish and broader communities.

Station manager Robert Bontschek helps install our new antenna at Chadstone.

The shows go on!

Plans for a resumption of live broadcasting on J-AIR are well advanced.

So far:
– J-AIR has secured a long lease on new premises in St Kilda
– Plans for the new premises – including two new studios, a podcast/recording booth and a reception area – have been finalised
– Plans for a better ergonomic studio layout have been finalised
– Tradies have been engaged to build the studios
– Final installation of J-AIR’s new broadcast antenna at Chadstone will be completed soon.

In the meantime, J-AIR continues to play 24-hour music, announcements and some shows, such as Walter’s World, through the Listen On Demand portal.

We welcome your ideas about J-AIR and its future and they can be emailed to [email protected]. Just head to the Contact us page for an email form.
