YaMakan family of radio stations
In March 2020, as the first COVID-19 lockdowns started and we were at home living with a terror of person-to-person contact, I started an online radio station inspired by a neighbourhood station in Milano. The first station was Radio il-Hai, based out of Mansion in Beirut. It quickly mushroomed into a family of 7 stations in Berlin, Palestine, Deir Atiyah, Tunis, Amman, and an anonymous alien planet.
The project had hundreds of listeners tuned in, and a full programming by tens of contributors. The only rule was: no COVID talk, we could get that everywhere else!
