going ga ga over radio

RECENTLY READ ABOUT OUR I&B MINISTER BEING IN THE PROCESS OF GIVING PERMISSIONS TO SOME 108 PRIVATE FM STATIONS,THE ISSUE OF MUMBAI UNIVERSITY'S FM STATION STILL NOT GONE ON THE AIR THOUGH IT WAS SANCTIONED COUPLE OF YEARS BACK,PUNE,HYDERABAD AND BANGALORE UNIVS GONE ON THE AIR,AND COMMUNITY RADIO BEING THE BUZZWORD OFF LATE.AND ITS GOOD THAT THIS CHANGE HAS BEGUN,I MEAN,THE WAVE OF RADIO STATIONS COMING UP.

RADIOCITY,RADIO MIRCHI,RED FM,WIN 946 WERE ALL ON AIR WHEN I FINALLY GOT A JOB IN MUMBAI,BUT INITIALLY BEING OUTSIDE THE GEOGRAPHICAL BOUNDARIES OF MUMBAI,I COULD NOT CATCH THE WAVES.BUT ONCE I STARTED TUNING IN,I WAS SELDOM UNINTERESTED.THERE ARE VIVID MEMORIES CLINGED TO THESE RADIO TIMES.AND AT A CERTAIN POINT OF TIME,I WAS SO IMPRESSED BY THIS NEW ENTERTAINMENT THAT,I EVEN TOOK A SHOT AT A RJ HUNT.

GROWING UP IN LATE 80s,MY EARLIEST MEMORIES ABOUT RADIO IS THE SHEHNAI RENDITION OF VANDE MATARAM,EVERY MORNING ON ALL INDIA RADIO,THEN FEW FUNNY TUNES ON VIVIDH BHARATI WOULD MAKE ME IMMITATE THEM AN WHAT NOT.
ABOUT THE RADIO PROGRAMMES THAT I GOT TO LISTEN IN MUMBAI,ALL HAD A YOUTHFUL FLAVOUR TO IT.I LIKED JAGGU AND TARANA,FOR THE SAME.THE ARE VERY CONTEMPORARY IN THEIR THOUGHTS AND HAVE A GOOD SENSE OF HUMOUR.

AS OF NOW,THIS THING ON RADIO HAS TAKEN A LONG TIME,SOMETHING ELSE SOON,MEANWHILE GO GRAB YOUR RADIO AND TUNE INTO YOUR FAVOURITE FM.
BYE.
