Radio star aged nine

By John Fisher, March 12, 2009

Nine-year-old Sam Berson has become the youngest presenter at Leeds Jewish community station Radio Jcom.

After just five weeks’ training, Sam is fronting the Sam Berson’s Children’s Show, a mix of interviews and music.

“Lots of my friends from the 22nd North Leeds cubs and scouts have been invited on to my programme and I want to include excerpts from all my favourite musicals,” he said.

He has recorded his own version of Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now to use as his theme music.

Radio Jcom is broadcast daily on the internet and is hoping to get an AM slot in the summer.
