Radio City plans a melody bonanza for listeners with ‘Shaam-E-Ghazal’

Radio City has decided to launch a new show solely devoted to ghazals, which begins o Friday, October 6, 2006. The new property – ‘Shaam-E-Ghazal’ – will see Roop Kumar Rathod as the host. The show is a blend of unplugged ghazals, mushairas and ‘live on-air’ performance by Rathod himself.

Commenting on the show, Apurva Purohit, CEO, Radio City, said, “Radio City has always believed in bringing to our listeners the best. We constantly push the envelope in terms of giving differentiated programming to our listeners through our music experts. With ‘Life Ki Dhun’ with Sonu Niigaam, we pioneered the trend of celebrity RJs, which received tremendous response. With ‘Shaam-E-Ghazal’ and more such programmes in the next few months, we will continue to treat our listeners to great music.”

Rathod said, “I am happy that Radio City has taken the lead to give this genre the much needed recognition. The concept of the show is unique and exciting. I am thrilled as this is my first on radio and I am grateful to Radio City for giving me my own show on the radio station.” The station has also weaved in some contests around the new show.
