Indigo 91.9 recently entered into the Limca Book of Records for the show they organised last year on World Music Day at the Indigo Live Music Bar in Bangalore.
The RJs and the team from the radio station formed a band and entertained the crowd live for an hour. The RJs took turns in hosting the show in which they sang retro numbers from the ‘60s. The band included some popular RJs of the station namely RJ Michelle, RJ Nathan, RJ Lester and RJ Shagufta. The band wrapped the show up with a quirky rendition of Free Falling by Tom Petty called ‘Keep Talking’.
“It feels good to create records and to be recognised. We are thrilled and it motivates us,” said Satya Narayana Murthy, CEO, 91.9 Indigo while talking about their entry in the Limca Book of Records.
When asked how this idea shaped up, Murthy said, “It’s well known that our RJs are multi-talented. They know their music and sing very well too. For World Music Day, we knew we had to go big and dedicate the day to all things music; after all we are Bangalore’s first international music station. We wanted to showcase the genres and the evolution of music over the years. Our RJs keenly came together to form the first ever RJ band and hit the right notes at Indigo Live Music Bar. The response we received has been phenomenal. It was our way of not only showcasing how great our RJs are but also with this on-ground live performance, a lot of their fans got an opportunity to watch them perform live.”
“It’s a surprise, but rest assured, it will be something big and awesome,” he said when asked about the station’s plans on World Music Day 2017, which is celebrated on June 21 every year to encourage people to make more music.
