AIR Kolkata going digital soon

All India Radio’s Kolkata station, a treasure-trove of vintage 78 rpm, 45 rpm and 33 rpm records, apart from cassettes and compact discs, is entering the digital age soon. All programmes would be aired via computerised systems, with the music stored on hard discs just a mouse click away.

According to sources, AIR’s one-year-old Radio On Demand has a fully computerised system, in which a caller dials a telephone number and a recorded voice asks for the code number of the song requested. The catch is that, to know the code number, one has to buy a booklet from AIR’s office.

The biggest advantage will be that AIR staff will no longer have to search manually for the records, cassettes or CDs. Apart from FM1 and FM2, the DAWS will be introduced in all studios including Kolkata A, B, Vividh Bharati and Special Bengali Services (SBS).
