FM radio has taken the fancy of almost everyone, with music available 24x7, it is easy to get plug in your earphones and listen to the songs and the blabbering of the RJ’s. If you go anywhere in Bangalore you will see people listening to radio, not just people walking in streets, but those inside shops, buses and where ever you can imagine.
There are currently 10+ FM radio channels in Bangalore which offer music in English, Hindi and of course the local language Kannada. Then you have film music, classical music and also educational programs. But one genre I am missing is that of news.
There is no news channel available, only music and education. There is a news broadcast on the AIR FM broadcast every hour, but it is a pain to wait. I still don’t know why no news channel has been launched, may be because government does not allow private players to broadcast news.
I don’t understand one thing, when you have so many private news channel, why cant we have then air an radio channel. If you are unaware of the FM channels available in Bangalore, please scroll down. Hoping to have a news channel soon….Till then….classical music is the way to go.
