    Radio Freedom

    from Nagpur, Maharashtra


Hello friends, my name is Sarika Kabir, I am from Nagpur, I am a video editor and I run a radio training institute. I have been associated with the social movement for the last several years. My husband works in the radio industry, he has been a radio jockey in Radio Mirchi and My FM. Currently he is the National Creative Head at Radio Orange. With Marathi being my mother tongue, I might have been thinking that if there is a radio that can connect Marathi audiences all over the world and Marathi artists can be heard all over the world. . And this could only happen due to the Internet revolution. We started our first Marathi Internet radio in 2016 "Radio Jhakas Marathi" and slowly we came to understand that the people listening to us are not only in India but all over the world. People are listening to us in about 35 countries. And this number is increasing day by day.

And with this experience, we are going to create a new social internet radio. Which is called "The Radio Freedom". This will be the world's first Bahujan democratic radio. Which will sound like a commercial radio. Radio Freedom is an endeavor where the people of Bahujan legends will speak of all the people of the world who have worked for human uplift (example - Nelson Mandela) Also global warming, entertainment, politics, education, business, country audio of world news Package will be played. Our aim is to identify the art of the smallest artists struggling in the villages and towns in the world, as well as to prepare the new generation of youth for the radio industry. This radio will play Hindi Marathi and English music. The Radio Freedom will act as a platform for every new singers, Reuters, voice over artist. This means the combination of entertainment and information.
