Radio is often called as the theatre of the mind – in India, it enthralled listeners with hit shows like ‘Binaca Geet Mala’and ‘Jai mala’. People sat glued to their radio sets just to listen to these shows and who can forget the voice of radio veteran Ameen Sayani. The history of radio in India stretches way back to the pre-independence days. The Radio Industry has evolved from “Vividh Bharati” to “Radio Mirchi”. Earlier radio was a medium of mass communication, and apart from entertainment, it was used to create awareness amongst people int he rural regions. Talking of movies, one remembers the use of radio in Munnabhai 2, Sanjay Dutt playing Munabhai uses radio to solve public’s problems and guides them with the help of Gandhian philosophy. Munna bhai 2 is the best commercial example of what radio can do. It has emerged more like an entertainment and media industry these days.
