CKZW Radio Shalom:

Welcome to your favorite radio station CKZW Radio Shalom 1650 AM. It is a non-profit radio station. It is located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

CKZW, formerly CJRS, is a 24-hour non-profit radio station based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Broadcasting a French language (and at times English language) Jewish format known as Radio Shalom, the station broadcasts at 1650 AM.

At certain times, the station also broadcasts a bilingual Christian format known as La Radio Gospel. CJRS was initially established in 2001 as a subcarrier FM radio service, Radio Shalom Montreal, before relocating to 1650 AM in May 2007.

It was Canada’s first and only trilingual Jewish radio station. Radio Shalom was also the only all Jewish radio station in North America, broadcasting in French, English and Hebrew.

The station was run under president Robert Levy. Radio Shalom was the only radio station in Canada that broadcasts mizrahi, Yiddish, ladino, klezmer, hassidic and Israeli music.

It also had news and talk shows such as the weekly Sunday evening program, The Howie Silbiger Show, which included a live call-in segment. Other shows include those produced by Alexandre Fredeau, and the long-running Montreal Jewish Magazine, hosted by Stanley Asher.

The CJRS call sign was previously used by Radiomutuel’s Sherbrooke outlet, at 1510 AM on the dial. This station went off the air along with a host of other AM stations in 1994.
