Popular singer Roop Kumar Rathod who specializes in the ghazal
genre makes his radio debut as the host of a classic new show on
Radio City 91 FM, Mumbai - 'Shaam-E-Ghazal'' - an interesting blend
of unplugged ghazals, mushairas and 'live on-air' performance by
the expert himself.
Apart from playing famous ghazals, the show would also look at
reviving ghazal listening and giving a new dimension to it.
Listeners would also be able to hear the maestro cite examples of
shayaris & ghazals and explain the nuances, meanings of
relevant words and difficult phrases in his shayarana style.
Roop Kumar Rathod puts it, "For the first time in the history of
FM radio, a show is completely dedicated to ghazals. I am happy
that finally somebody has taken the lead to give this genre the
much needed recognition. The concept of the show is unique and
exciting. I am thrilled!"
