    Today being world radio day I remember those nostalgic childhood days when we used to relish radio Anna's children's program. Later as we grow up we used to enjoy the classical music program. One of us would minimize the volume and be near the radio where others would try to guess the raga the musician sang.

    In fact we didn't have a radio in our house and so we used to sit at a window in the terrace to hear the radio played from a neighbour's house. Later after I started working I bought a second hand GEC radio and it was small, cute and beautiful and black in colour. I used to call it black beauty.

    Perhaps nowadays no one listen to radio after the invasion of TV and other musical gadgets. But even now we listen to Carnatic music in radio and debates on social issues. Radio Ceylon was very favorite in the evenings. Now there are many FM stations which are liked by many as they broadcast listeners' choice.

    Dear Pushpa,
    Ah those days of the sixties when we used to hear the commentary on radio of cricket, that binaca Geet Mala on Wednesday, and so many programmes, Bhoole Bhikre Geet, and it was wonderful,

    And mind you, the added bonus was, that we all were younger.HAHA

    Regards
    kamal

    Dear Pushpa,

    I am an avid fan of Radio right from my childhood days listening to Paapamalar programmes as a young girl and then graduated to listening to songs of both Hindi and Tamil films. Now we have convenient fm channels relaying carnatic, Hindustani as well as film songs which we can access through our mobile phones. Looking back I realise how technology has brought a revolution in the way we listen to music- anywhere, anytime.

    Dear Mr Kamalji,
    In our house we all were interested in cricket match and my brother while he was studying in college used to do umpiring in inter college matches. My niece's husband was Karnataka state cricket player under Gundappa Viswanathan.
    In those days people were interested in listening to music programme and movie songs in their regional languages. But now after TV has come language barrier has disappeared
