Besides playing Tamil music, Raj Musix will also play the latest Indipop, English and Bollywood film music.

“Raj Misix is not just about music and fun. We have also lined up some thought-provoking infotainment programmes under our lifestyle section like ‘Gramophone’, where the older generation can share their inspiring lifetime experiences. ‘Malligai’, a programme that will feature women achievers from various walks of life,” said Amit Boss, Vice-President, Programming & Productinon, Raj Musix.
