Radio Shalom

It' a miscellany and a medley of the Jewish community for 30 minutes every week. The Auckland Jewish community is reflected in discussion and interviews, devotion, events and festivals, skits, plays and a monthly music special, which airs a potpourri of Israeli singers and song writers.


  • Producer / Presenter: Joan Lardner-Rivlin

    Joan Lardner-Rivlin, QSM has been presenting Radio Shalom since 1998. She loves radio for its ability to keep in touch with members of the community, for people to tell their stories, to share their music, their enthusiasms and their opinions! Joan is deeply engaged in community work, but still finds time for her global grandchildren.
