Free Radio Peace

    

Programm

ing
The aim of Radio Peace is to bring education, humanitarian support, peace and harmony in its programme.  The programme will be aimed at listeners among all the displaced persons in the Levant.

The station will help bring psycho-social support and counselling for the victims of conflict who are generally very vulnerable and in need of this help.

FRP supports the ‘No Lost Generation’ initiative of the UN and encourage debate and discussion, while advocating accord, equality and freedom. Radio Peace is a neutral voice, with messages of hope and encouragement, to strengthen all Syrians, especially those refugees living in the adjacent countries.

Music & Programme content

The station will attract a wide audience with a mixture of music and news that Syrian listeners will find appealing. Our broadcasters will be upbeat, hope-filled, and use western style of presentation, with music and speech in Arabic and English, which is regarded as the international language of business in the Middle East, and of course of music. Music will be the main attraction of Radio Peace, so the playlist must be of wide appeal and include most musical genres.

Radio Peace will feature the music of such well known stars as Hazem Shareef of Syria who won the Arabic version of American Idol in December 2014. The music heard on Radio Peace will have an international flavour; it will be non partisan, uplifting and happy, full of hope and love for all.

Radio Peace will carry special educational programming with the general aim to make learning popular and increase both numeracy and literacy, mainly for children.


Dual Roles

    

- teacher & communicator

Radio Peace presenters will have a dual role: both teacher and communicator, two roles that are well respected in Syrian culture. Hosts will invite listeners to send their names and locations by social media, so we can make the programmes locally relevant.

This will help us gauge how well programmes are received, make the station sound more personal and encourage a greater sense of belonging. Views and comments will be elicited, to add to the flavour and wide appeal of the programmes, however controversial topics will be avoided and no overt editorial points will be made.

Programming & Music

Programmes will be presented in a  ‘western style’ by friendly programme hosts. The programmes will invariably be informal and at times perhaps a little irreverent.  The radio station however will always be respectful and inoffensive. We expect the audience to include authorities, politicians and diplomats of all sides all religions.

The radio programmes will contain no long rambling and boring speeches but short sharp ‘capsules’ of messages of hope, advice , educational instruction,  comment and other items of topical interest. We intend to feed the thirst for language skills already evident among refugees, using experienced English and Arabic teachers who are now in the UK.

We shall include music by internationally known artists and by well known Syrian music stars, both film stars and singers, who are also well known in the neighbouring Levant countries. Examples are the top Syrian singer Sabah-Shahroura and of course Shahd Barmada, and Sabah Fakhri - the biggest selling artists in Aleppo.

The programmes will be produced in several different studio locations, in the UK and in the Middle East. Our programme hosts will speak a mixture of English and Arabic and incorporate messages of peace and harmony and several hours education each day.

Radio Free Peace programmes will be presented by friendly programme hosts; informal, family oriented, but always respectful, epitomising Syrian attitudes. There will be no long rambling and boring speeches but short sharp items of news and topical interest. Music will be the main attraction  so the playlist must be of wide appeal and include most musical genres.
Radio Peace presenters will have a dual role: both teacher and entertainer, both roles are well respected in Syrian culture. Listeners will be invited to respond to the studio by social media,  so we can make the programmes locally relevant. This will make it seem as though we are close by, giving an enhanced sense of belonging. 

We shall include music by internationally known artists and by well known Syrian stars, who are mostly film and Tv stars, and also well known in the neighbouring Levant countries. Examples are the top Syrian singers Sabah-Shahroura, Shahd Barmada, and Sabah Fakhri - the biggest selling artist in Aleppo.
Older singers from Syria such as Umm Kolthum and Fairoz have dimished appeal to younger audiences who have grown up on a diet of Arabic pop. This is characterised by a hand-clapping rhythm overlaid with synthesised twirlings and very repetitive choruses, most of it from Cairo, such as the Arab world’s biggest seller, Nour al Ain by Amr Diab. Until the conflict Syrian music styles looked set to overtake Cairo, although this has stalled in since the Syrian crisis began.
