Its Raining Radio Stations

Some more updated about the new radio station, especially about the RJs.

I have been listening to it since yesterday and am impressed with the music they have been playing so far. The list of RJs they have are all completely familiar names to the city, which includes Sihi Kahi Chandru, Shalini of pacho Sreemathi fame, Sindhu – the girl from the movie Nenapirali, Kiran Sreedhar, etc. Upendra is going to host a show by himself. But I am looking forward to listening to the shows from Mimicry Dayanand who can get really funny.

I have to say again that I am mighty impressed with the music they have been playing so far, and if they manage to keep it up, they have me hooked!

Radio VeRVe: Showcasing independent musicians

It began sometime back as an experiment called Infinity Radio and was started by Kaustubh Srikanth in late 2003 to help independent musicians across the country promote themselves. Based in Bangalore, the experiment expanded to included two more members.

Shreyas Srinivasan and Gaurav Vaz joined Kaustubh in 2005 and formed the nucleus of Infinity Radio.

Today, RadioVeRVe, as it is now called, is all set to ride this wave and change the face of entertainment in India. Drawing on the experience of the many years of intimate involvement with the music scene, the technology advantage and the limitless possibility of the world wide web, RadioVeRVe aims to be at the forefront of the “Indian Independent Music Revolution”.

Shreyas Srinivasan talks about Radio Verve and the exciting plans they have for the future.

Vamos a Bailar! Let’s Go Salsa-ing!

The very first exercise activity I embarked on after giving birth to my daughter five weeks earlier (now eight weeks ago) was dancing. Not any kind of dancing, but Salsa, the kind that requires more grace than most and more hip swinging than most. Being a certified klutz, it was rather difficult in the first class, to put it mildly. Instead of tiny lady-like steps in Rumba, I was taking huge strides and swallowed up the dance floor with atleast five more steps to go. Instead of a quick sashay in Cha Cha Cha I stumbled sideways and missed a few beats. Sigh!

Six classes later (four more to go in this set), I’m glad to report that I’ve acquired a semblance of grace (even though I do say so myself). Much credit goes to the teacher, Mridula, who is patient, obviously skilled in the Latin dance forms and her enthusiasm.

One more Radio Station

Bangalore badly needed more FM radio stations and now there is at least one more. Radio One has been on the air for a while in testing mode and has launched officially today, as you would already know.

My first impression is to rate it much above all other stations – Rainbow, Radio City and Mirchi. The music content is much better and the best part is that the radio jockeys are non-intrusive. Unlike the other stations where they think music is no more than a substitute to support the rambling of the jockeys, guys at Radio One are relatively silent. And the music is good too – I have listened to many good oldie Kannada numbers today that I haven’t heard in a while. And as I am writing this, there is another nice number playing on the radio:

Onde ondu aaseyu ninna muddadalu…

Lets hope they stay this way in the days to come and we don’t have to bear with listening to occasional songs in the middle of ads!
