My favourite RJ: Sudarshan

Who would know the abilities and the woes of a doctor better than a doctor? Similarly who would know the abilities and woes of a RJ better than a RJ? exchange4media interacts with versatile RJ, actor and theatre artist Mantra to find out what according to him are the qualities a RJ should have and who is Mantra's favourite.

While Mantra has a number of favourites due to his taste and hunger for music, a recent opportunity added another name to his list.

exchange4media chats with Mantra to find out the traits of his favourites. Excerpts:

Who is your favorite RJ?
I am glad that the world moved on to internet and thus I can access radio and music from my cell phone. I have international favourites across the world. In our country, I have a number of favourites. Recently, at the Golden Mikes jury meet I had the opportunity to listen to RJ Sudarshan of Red FM, Jaipur. Sudarshan has a very innocent approach towards RJing. I liked him instantly.

Obviously there are all-time favourites such as Jeeturaj, Mir and Malishka as well. They are where they are for a reason.

What do you like about that RJ Sudarshan?
I personally have no idea who Sudarshan is because I have never interacted with him. But I like him because he does not try to being over smart. He does not seem to be putting up an act. He is natural. Also, his voice has good texture and proper pronunciations. He has his basics right.

When do you tune in to radio the most?
I tune into radio a lot of times through my cell phone with the help of applications. I tune into the terrestrial radio usually while driving and at night.

With increasing commercial pressure, do you think RJs these days manage to keep their content objective?
A good RJ will always weave commercial content with the commercial aspect. Sometimes RJs may complain that everything we say is sponsored, but a good jock will always weave his or her content. For instance, RJ Mir recently introduced a Ford Fego contest on his show by relating it to a personal experience, which is a very good technique.

From the media fraternity, which personality do you think can make a marvelous RJ?
I feel Javed Jaffrey can be an awesome RJ. The day he enters the radio fraternity as a RJ, a lot of people will have to run for their money.
