The FM Revolution Begins

By Sabhanaz Rashid Diya

In the age of iPod and live entertainment at the click of a button, radio has long lost its glory. Most villages have access to colour televisions or at least, black-and-white ones. Bangladesh Betaar has bored urban population with stereotype programs, miserably unenthusiastic radio jockeys and has somehow survived by targeting an audience of bus drivers, rickshawpullers and low-paid day labourers. On the other hand, the closure of the country's first private station, Radio Metro, left several listeners at a loss for good radio entertainment. However, with the introduction of Bangladesh's first private FM stations, our day-to-day radio-experience is about to change.

'The station of the nation', Radio Today FM 89.6 was launched earlier this year. With a commitment to providing listeners with unbiased news, good music, current events and sports update, Radio Today is a complete infotainment station. Live traffic updates, daily exchange rates, price of groceries and other market commodities and most importantly, different genres of music have made it already a popular among masses. The station is Dhaka-based and is available to those who're within 100km from it. However, the station is hopeful about starting transmission in several other districts and aims to offer Radio Today as a lifestyle brand.

Six months after the launching of Radio Today, the country's second private FM radio station, Radio Foorti FM 98.4 was marketed. Radio Foorti aims to provide its listeners with quality non-commercial music and information about current events, marking its position as an integral part of the youth lifestyle. Sadly, most Japanese cars that flood Dhaka's streets do not support FM frequency above 90, owing to Japanese transmission technology. However, FM expanders are available in the market at cheap rates, and these can extend the frequency to 100. The producers of Radio Foorti are tremendously hopeful about FM transmission in the country with the latest models of cell phones facilitating FM radio stations and consider near-future radio entertainment to be the next big thing!

In fact, as phrased by Daniel Rahman, one of the producers of Radio Foorti, who draws examples from India, FM radio stations will be revolutionizing the face of entertainment in the coming years. India had no radio scenario even a few years back, but by the end of this year, it will be hosting 250 radio stations. It is a highly prospective industry and every celebrity in town is attached to one station or the other. Young people buy cell phones on the basis of its FM features! What makes radio more acceptable is its low-price and easy availability, hence giving it an enormous potential in being a successful business in Bangladesh.

Well, Daniel has foreseen it right! It is unbelievable how fast FM radio bands have dominated our lives. Playing the latest tracks released by local and international artists, it has nearly-successfully taken up the role of CD players in our cars. Many of my peers and previous generations have stopped listening to CD players in cars and the most recent news is known even before we go home and turn the television on. Even my driver is thrilled when he listens to the same songs on radio that I spend money on buying CDs of! With provision for requesting your favourite artist's songs and exclusive interviews, the radio-experience has been beautifully personalized.

What cannot be overlooked is that these stations are mostly youth-based and hence, provide today's young populace the chance to choose a different career path. The energy and enthusiasm of young people holding important positions as producers and reaching out to the masses as radio jockeys have led to the vibrant growth of these stations and opened broader opportunities for all. Radio Foorti particularly encourages young potentials to come up by submitting their compositions to be aired or living a fully paid career of a radio jockey. Most of its current staff host young musicians and welcomes many others. On the other hand, Radio Today has arranged events such as 'Rock Da Campus', which brought together live performances by local university bands.

What makes these radio stations stand out and make a statement is how radically they have changed our lives. A large part of the population who had never heard of Hyder Husyn or Stoic Bliss are now clicking their fingers to their beats, hence breaking away from the commercialism of Momtaz or Dhaliwood soundtracks. This positive change in our music taste has already proved what an important role radio infotainment can play in our lifestyles. In upcoming years, radio stations will be promoting more informed and healthy living patterns and Inshallah lead to greater economical and social growth in the country.

Why smokers Smoke?

Most of our Smokers we think that cutting of the number of the cigarettes might decrease the rate of our health risk which we assume of heavy smoking. But this is really wrong and there already a news been published in MSN in title of -
"Smokers, it's not enough to just cut back"
Study: No difference between regular use and only a few cigarettes a day

Specially i would like to focus on few of the lines i read from that published article are shared below :

“The long-term effects of a substantial reduction in smoking did not show any benefits in comparison with persistent heavy smoking,” Bjartveit told Reuters.

“In health education and patient counselling, it may give people false expectations to advise that reduction in consumption is associated with reduction in harm,” Bjartveit added.

“The study proves quite clearly the only safe way out of the risk caused by smoking: people who quit smoking have achieved a risk level that is remarkably lower than those who continued to smoke,” Bjartveit said in the journal.

Now question again though i am a smoker. Why do we really smoke? Don 't we think it's an open addiction where we all smokers are addicted in smoking? Why do we really smoke? Is there anything we could feel better? After all an Addiction of Tobacco. What are the ingredients of a cigarette? See my old post - Whats in cigarettes?

Blogthings Test

Don know but just for fun. I saw many of my surrounding bloggers to test this things and i like to read their test results. But really not sure whether this result are gender specific or not? Cause most of the time i see few tests are only for female.

Lets have fun on my 2 recent Test results :p

Your Ideal Relationship is Serious Dating

You're not ready to go walking down the aisle.
But you may be ready in a couple of years.
You prefer to date one on one, with a commitment.
And while chemistry is important, so is compatibility.

Your Personality Is

Rational (NT)

You are both logical and creative. You are full of ideas.
You are so rational that you analyze everything. This drives people a little crazy!

Intelligence is important to you. You always like to be around smart people.
In fact, you're often a little short with people who don't impress you mentally.

You seem distant to some - but it's usually because you're deep in thought.
Those who understand you best are fellow Rationals.

In love, you tend to approach things with logic. You seek a compatible mate - who is also very intelligent.

At work, you tend to gravitate toward idea building careers - like programming, medicine, or academia.

With others, you are very honest and direct. People often can't take your criticism well.

As far as your looks go, you're coasting on what you were born with. You think fashion is silly.

On weekends, you spend most of your time thinking, experimenting with new ideas, or learning new things.

You Are Very Honest

You tell it like it is, no matter what.
Even if the truth hurts, you'll dish it out.
And while some may get hurt by your honesty...
At least everyone knows where you stand!

Life Is A Race

Shadhinota ( Freedom ) - Hyder Husyn

This is really an awesome lyrics sang by Hyder Husyn. As i had no time to type the whole Lyrics so I collected the Lyrics from And thanks to for let me share it in my Blog.

Hyder Husyn - 30 Bochor / Shadhinota

Ki dekhar kotha ki dekchi
Ki shonar kotha ki shunchi
Ki vabar kotha ki vabchi
Ki bolar kotha ki bolchi
Tirish bochor poreyo ami shadhinota take khujchi

Shadhinota ki boishakhi mela, panta ilish khawa
Shadhinota ki boto mool-e boshe boishakhi gan gawa
Shadhinota ki budhhijibir boktrita seminar
Shadhinota ki shohid berite pushper shomahar
Shadhinota ki golpo natok uponnash ar kobitay
Shadhinota ki aj bondi anushthanikotay


Shadhinota ki dhaka shohorer akash chumbi bari
Shadhinota ki footpath-e showa griho hinno nari

Shadhinota ki hotel-e hotel-e grand fashion show
Shadhinota ki dukhini narir jora jirno bostro
Shadhinota ki gojiye otha ovijato panthoshala
Shadhinota ki onner khoje kishori promodhbala


Shadhinota ki niriho loker okaron-e prandondo
Shadhinota ki panir tank-e golito lasher gondho
Shadhinota ki hortal deke jibon kora stobdho
Shadhinota ki khomota horon-e chole bonduk judhho
Shadhinota ki shontrashi hat-e maronastrer gorjon
Shadhinota ki orther lobhe bibek bishorjon


Aj nei borgi nei engrej nei pakistani hanadar

Ajo tobu keno amar mone shunnota ar hahakar
Ajo tubu ki lakho shohider rokto jabe britha
Ajo tobi ki vulte boshechi shadhinotar etikotha

Here i am sharing the song with everyone to listen and feel about Shadhinota ( Freedom ). Are we really still seeking for the Freedom which we got in last 30 years ago? Are we still reaching for the same Freedom?

Never Explain

Never explain yourself to any one.

Because the person who likes you doesn't need it,
and the person who dislikes you won't believe it.
