Sounds Good



Today it was a feeble Christmas song on the FM that woke me up. A day before it was an Ayyappa song. The local fm stations have been airing some beautiful devotionals these eventful days. And father was all up early in the morning to play them on the fm.

The fm stations these days have sprouted like mushrooms. Even television channels started to produce their own fm stations. And everywhere I go, whether its a supermarket, grocery store, hotel, salon, trains, railway reservation counters, I can hear a fm playing. Even people are listening it on their mobile phones. My sister a couple of years ago bought her new mobile phone (a Nokia 6030). When I asked why she opted for it, she simply said it can play fm.

A few years ago during my school days when there were hardly any fm stations in India, I frequently tuned the fm to find if anything was playing there. But all I could hear was an empty cooing sound. But today its a different scene alltogether.
Now its also the time of Internet Radio's And here too there are lots of free radio stations. But Martini in the Morning is the thing I hear now.


Cool Med Radio - another good internet radio.
Radio Tower - for more internet radio stations.

It is amazing how things change, I remember not being able to hear much radio due to the place I lived, surrounded by high hills that blocked fm signals...
Oh, the wonders of technology these days...

BTW, ¡¡¡Feliz Navidad!!!
Merry Christmas!!!

with the fm radio, the one big thing is that you get to hear free, legal, music like nowhere else. the randomness and the surprise element too, adds to the nostalgia related with radio. it is more than putting your audio player's playing mode to shuffle and marveling at how timely each song gets selected!. nice post. i would like to give you a big thumbs up for the two-windows' photograph at vizag too.
