Kool 104, Hyderabad’s first international radio station, officially announced its launch in the city on Tuesday at an event which was attended by actor-director Farhan Akhtar.

When asked about the event, Akhtar said, “I have grown up listening to classic bands and artists from the 70s, 80s and 90s. Most of them have influenced my song writing and music. So I’m sure Hyderabad’s first international station – Kool 104 - will keep everyone entertained with the best international hits!”
