There was a time when radio had been written off in India. Video had killed the radio star. But it bounced back from the dead. And how! Today, our morning looks incomplete without a radio playing in the background. Traffic jams seem a little more bearable, all thanks to our beloved RJs talking to us. And we feel a little less lonely with someone’s cheerful voice playing all the time.
Gone are the days when an RJ’s job was restricted to playing music and introducing songs. An RJ today dons multiple hats. He/She is our friend, agony aunt and our guide all rolled into one. But have you ever wondered what does that face behind that voice looks like? Well, here’s your chance to find out.
