In keeping with its image of a fun radio station for young Mumbaiites, GO92.5FM has lined up several activity-oriented programmes this October. The young ones can look forward to speed dating, hosting their own college show and even showing off their IQ level.
GO92.5FM has partnered with Lee to host the first Flirty@7.30 speed dating special. Twenty-five boys and 25 girls will be invited to the Flirty speed dating special, which will be held at Zenzi on October 21. In order to get selected, listeners will have to sign up at either www.go925.com or www.leelounge.com.
The lonely hearts can find a special blind date every Friday through the FM station’s programme, Flirty@7.30. People can add their profile at www.go925.com and receive messages in their personal mailbox. The show will feature three boys trying to woo one girl, who will be the week’s ‘flirty pick’.
Said Shariq Patel, Station Head, GO92.5FM, “Our aim is to make the station as interactive as possible. It is important for us to connect with our listeners. Programmes like Flirty@7.30 get our listeners together and have harmless fun.”
GO92.5FM has also tied up with Orange for the College Radio Challenge. This popular inter-college competition, in its third year now, offers college students an opportunity to host their own one hour-long show on GO92.5FM and be the best college on air in Mumbai.
This year, 45 colleges are taking part and the station has received over 5,000 entries. The radio station has short-listed 10 teams comprising two persons each and the programme is aired every Sunday from 4 pm to 6 pm.
With the Navratri festival in full swing, the station has been airing special programmes throughout the nine-day festival at 1 pm. Radio Jockey Shruti has been keeping listeners updated on the latest trends in jewellery, tattoos, and clothes, as well well as giving information on the best ‘dandiya’ spots in Mumbai.
This October, the station has also introduced the GO Gyanee show from Monday-Friday at 6 pm. Listeners can choose a topic that they know best and be quizzed on it. The winner gets a CD, a T-shirt and a mug.
Patel said, “We believe that listeners appreciate new experiences like winning tickets to the Grammy Awards or a party more than winning a bag or a DVD. It’s about making them a part of a special event or sending them to places where they otherwise might not be able to go to.”
