Sadabahaar Gaane

RJ Devika Dutta (Every Wednesday from 10:05 P.M. – 11:00 P.M) 20150724012808Music is the essence and necessity of life. It is a kind of escape from the mayhem of our everyday routine. Radio shows come as the best way to destress yourself after a long day at work. Amidst several shows on air, Sadabahaar Gaane on FM Gold 106.4 is one of the best for the listeners who want to hear some soothing old immortal classics.

Though this programme is aired every day but on every Wednesday, RJ Devika hosts the show from 10.05PM to 11.00PM.

What is most appealing about this RJ is not only her voice quality and presentation but her research. Yes, the way she introduces each and every song and makes listeners connect with it is amazing! In order to give true and rare information about the songs played during the show, an extensive research comes to her rescue. This research also gives her an edge to host this particular show that is still keeping the long-forgotten classics alive. 20150724012813

Her listeners range from college goers to aged people. However, a theme based show has its pros and cons. For one, it gives you a well-defined target audience and for two, it limits you in terms of a genre. Since the show solely airs old classics, people often give it a miss.

AIR FM Gold is perhaps the oldest channel we have on radio and it is good to see that they are still continuing their trend of broadcasting informative programs.

Sadabahaar Gaane, as the name suggests, is a Show dedicated to the old classics. It manages to garner a lot of appreciation from the listeners. 20150724012818In this one hour segment, RJ Devika not only plays some really good songs from the old time looming in past, but also reads out several messages from the listeners.

She is fondly called Devi by them which speak volumes about their love for the show and the Radio Jockey. Since Devika comes up with the show once in a week; the people eagerly wait for it. The views can vary from person to person. However, the ability to hold the listeners’ interest is remarkable and for this, the credit goes to the RJ. If only she would be hosting it daily, things would have been better. But then, we value only those things which are rare. So don’t forget to tune in this Wednesday and get on the train to the old ‘gold’ days.

Amazon’s Echo smart speakers would work with Apple Music beginning December 17, the company has announced.

“If you have an Apple Music account and have connected it to your smart speaker in the Alexa app, the speakers will be able to play music on demand. Apple’s $9.99 a month music subscription service will join Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, Amazon’s own music service, and other options on Alexa devices,” CNN reported late on Friday.

The agreement is the latest sign of good relations between the two tech titans.

This comes barely two weeks after Amazon announced it was working with the iPhone-maker to carry its newest products, including iPhones.

The move will hit the third party vendors who sell new and refurbished Apple products on the e-commerce platform but the retail giant will gain from the deal, market research firm Counterpoint Research said last week.
