Recently, I was invited by Kulraaj Anand of EBC Radio to initiate a drama club for the radio. Since my childhood days, I was always fascinated by radio drama. Growing up in a small town, we didn’t have much of live stage theater available to us easily. Radio drama was one of the greatest source of entertainment and nourishment for my imagination. I loved radio drama so much, that I would never miss a single broadcast, for whatever reason. So, this opportunity gave me a chance to get up close and personal with radio drama. On March 30th we had the premiere broadcast of the show, and in the podcast below you’ll get a chance to listen to the show if you missed the chance of tuning in at 12:00noon last Saturday to 1170 AM. This was our first attempt and we had made a few mistakes. But that’s what happens in a live show. We’ll try to minimize the mistakes in our future shows.
We plan to continue this show every other week. The show will not only feature radio dramas, but also story readings, discussions, reviews and previews of local theatre, interviews with actors/directors/producers etc. If you have any comments or suggestions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
