Chennai’s Hottie

In the recent days peoples interest on listening Radio’s have increased. Back days hearing to Radio was very bore for me, but now it was a good entertainment for my ears and mind. In the old days the people in chennai woke up by hearing M.S.Subbalakshi’s famous devotional song cowsalliya supratha rama poorva…. I used to get ready to school by hearing the advertisements in Radio from the nearest Teashop. We can tell that from last 4 years radios have reaches every corner of the city, because of private stations jump.

When Suryan FM of Sun Network put foot on the Radio, they introduced many programs relater to films by covering people by giving them chance to dialing and ask their favorite songs and there intro of Ooresuthalam vanga is a program where the RJ’s visit a location every day and meet people directly and make them to talk in the radio and give information about that place, was a nice program and also my favorite one. They also not even leave the kids, there was a program where the kids call and talk. When Suryan was going like this, the enter of Radio Mirchi attracts by “It’s Hot” waves.

If Suryan was attracted people by its different programs, Mirchi attracts people by its young talented and humored voice of the RJ’s, it also move very fast with us. “Hello Chennai” the voice of Suchitra’s is the best welcome of the day for others and me, wow! what a wonderful voice she have. The prank speech of her makes the show more interesting. She discusses variety of topics every day and people call her and share her thoughts and there experience of the topic. As it was live, she tell some of the important incidents and news in between happening in the city and the traffic update in morning and evening was very useful for people driving vehicles. If I dint tell about our “Joot Ajai” this post will be waste; Ajai an excellent RJ, who has a good sense of humor and some times his Chennai Tamil was very funny, his voice of telling Joootttaaaaaaaaaaa…. turns our attention towards the radio. If some other RJ’s join with ajai the show will be more attractive. These Radios also giving free passes and tickets for newly released film and music programs whoever call them and win some contest, some days back they went further and auction the dresses were the actor Surya used in his film Silunu Oru Kaadhal to collect funds for a charity. This week was very hottie because of Matter Manikam, who is taking actress Namith in his Auto (just a imagination), today is Sandhya and tomorrow is who? This show brings much laugh in me, its pure funny show. If u r in chennai just listen to matter manikam and enjoy.
In the recent days there were some more FM stations have open in chennai the Daily thandhi started an FM called “ Star India’s “Radio City” and Reliance’s “BIG”. Now there is a healthy contest between Radios and selecting RJ’s (Radio Jockey). The situation brings more talented people before us as RJ’s. Some of the RJ’s worked on different stations have moved to new ones, and the VJ’ of the televisions also went on the air (I mean on Radio’s). There are many reasons have said for them to move, like expecting more salary, giving importance for their talents. I am happy to tell, that my Friend and our co-Blogger Reva was RJing a program Vayaraga on Hello FM 106.4 on weekdays form 9 to 11.pm. She was very kind to put my favorite song on her program last week, if any one has time just listen to her show, she tells much information! The searching for the RJ’s with new and different voice is going on… between the stations. We can hear the Radio in every teashop, petrol bunk and small shops, the FM’s have become a gracious gift for the Auto drivers, all autos have radios, which go on running. If we go on the ECR, we can hear the sounds of Radios esp. the Radio Mirchi rocks the most in much car’s, and It makes me to reduce listening to CD’s and cassettes while traveling, because all latest and old songs are relay by these radios. The information they give on this shows are very good. Esp. in this cool monsoon time in chennai, listening to these Hot Radios’s is really very warm.
