Rambha.... Rambabu...

Sounds like that cheesy movie from Rajendra Prasad back in the 90s? Its actually the name of a comedy clips series on Hyderabad's 98.3 FM Radio Mirchi "Idi chala Hot Guru!" station. We enjoyed listening to this channel while we were in Hyd (and most of the drive back). My sis suggested it when we were driving around. FM has caught on big-time in India thanks to the growing number of cars. My association with the radio is not very strong. As a kid I used to listen to it but not regularly. We were fast shedding the radio cloak and donning the TV suit back then in the early and mid-eighties. In the US, bah! I hated all radio channels and the crap that came with them. I stuck to my iPod and its FM transmitter. Now that I am back here I actually have begun to pay some serious attention to this still-standing-and-still-very-strong wonder called Radio :)

i bet radio in India is much better than the one in US atleast for us Indians. When i left India in Fall 2005, that was the time when radio was catching up a lot. There were new FM channels which i used to thoroughly enjoy, one of them was Radio Mirchi, the best!
