    I used to luv Radio Mirchi when I was @ Chennai.

    Now, I’m really pissed off that my iPod doesn’t have integrated FM capability.

    I have to hunt around for an add-on :-(

    My Sandisk Xansa catches these FM stations and I am loving it! :-)

    They have an interesting and very local approach and tagline – “Sakkath hot, maga!”
    For the first time I heard RJs switching between Kannada, English and (sparse) Hindi. They seem to have a much later target audience in sight than either Radio City or Rainbow FM.

    Am impressed – I have listened to them in other cities as well, and they didnt have the local flavouring there(and I generally hated them in Cal and Bombay).

    Radio mirchi is definitetly better. But if they don’t have local flavouring elsewhere, why here ?
    OK, it maybe nice to have it, but aren’t they going overboard, a bit ???

    nice to know that radio Mirchi has started operations in Namma Bengalooru. Its good to know that RJs speak in Kannada and English and some hindi in between. Even the quality of ads and songs are good. Unlike Radiocity which acts and does business like there is no other language that exists other than hindi in bangalore. Its refreshing that a new radio station has captured the imaginations of lakhs of kannadigas and respected their language and culture and music.
    Thanks to mirchi for also playing nice old kannada songs paying a tribute to Dr.Raj on his birthday.
    Keep up the good work. I request Radio Mirchi to come out with ADs in Bangalore as most of people do not know that the station has started its operations

    I would like to listen to more and more kannaDa songs on Radio mirchi.
    Radio mirchi in chennai plays tamil songs for longer durations,in the same way,Radio Mirchi in Bangalore should play more and more kannaDa songs.
    It is not fair to target only the cosmopolitian crowd.The local language and the localites should be given greater importance.
    Hope to listen to more and more kannaDa songs

    I think Mirchi sucks big time in bangalore. And this is no surprise as they suck big time in mum, cal and delhi as well. They have very bad jokes which they crack in bangalore. also they play old hindi songs. kannada songs are ok. but its nowhere close to radio city which actually plays a good mix of hindi and english and some dedicated kannada songs in the afternoons. i think radio city jocks are also cooler. but i like mirchi tagline – its hot. infact in summer time, they are talking about bangalore weather. wonder what they will say once the monsoons start, or bangalore winter sets in. should they pay me money to suggest a tagline like – its cold and its raining… changing with the weather. :)

    Everything is organised well but u can plz change the caption…”Sakath Hot Maha” is sometimes sounding odd.

    Do anybody now, how to hear “Radio Mirch” Banglaore 93.3 FM through internet (Online) if so please let me know the URL for the same. Thanks in advance

    Mirchi thru its local flavour is eating up radio city’s share in blore. Radio city has become too monotonous and too many ads. programmes like uncle appukuttan and the cooking one irritates like crazy.
    mirchi’s tag line “No bak bak, just dhak dhak” aptly refers to Radio city.
    I was a fan of radio city all these days, not now. I prefer mirchi. Competition can do wonders for consumers :)

    Radio mirchi is Hot indeed! hey and if u guys are reading this “I WANT TO BE A RJ” …i’m good, try me :D

    Radio Mirchi in Bangalore is a good move-But there are only Hindi and English songs and Kannada songs has been totally neglected.At least 10 hours out of 24 hours should be de3voted for playing Kannada film songs then only we can listen- otherwise AIR’s FM will corner Mirchi-it is 100% TRUE.
    For Kannadigas Mirchi should not be Khaara-it should be Sweet?

  14. lakshman (unregistered) on May 8th, 2006 @ 4:07 pm

    if Radiomirchi does not play kannada songs, sooner or later it will catch the ire of kannadigas and some organisation will pelt stones. Before any such move ,here is a sincere request to all the private radio stations to play kannada songs along with hindi and english. it would be good if 40% of airtime is provided to kannada music.
    How come the same station which plays tamil in chennai does not play kannada in banaglore?
    Please provide some logical explanation to this.
