And remember Mr. Ameen Sayani, the legendary broadcaster of “Binaca (later Cibaca) Geethmala in radio Ceylon? As they say, History repeats by itself, Radio has become once more popular. Up, Down and Up again… The up-and-coming of FM channels across India has helped Radio return from the grave.
As per Mr. Sayani, radio is a fascinating medium, “when you listen to a note or a word, you paint a picture in your mind and a creative process evolves. Radio is very participative and involving”.
