This is Me. I am Lost.
Its too much of Mirchi for Radio Listeners in Bangalore. It has managed to attract the major chunk of the music lovers in the last one month and evidently all the company cabs have switched to Mirchi from Radio City( which i suppose... started around 2 years back)..
But guys ! Too much of Mirchi is giving me a huge headache. I appreciate the fact that Mirchi has been successful in connecting with the audience of Bangalore. With Kanglish ( Kannada + English) speaking RJs it claims for 'Less Bak Bak and More Dhak Dhak'.. But there is too much of Shor.. All the self promotional ads they play are by far below standard and embarassing..
They way they add Radio Mirchi... to the start of every song seems to be an innovative idea.. but most of the time its ends up spoiling the audibility and fails to be in sync with the tune...
Ofcourse there are some execptions. When its plays Radio Mirchi.......Radio Mirchi instead of Subhaanallaah... i get a feeling that its actually Aamir Khan whose singing it..The number of ads are increasing on a daily basis and there are too many repetitions. Radio City too has its share of ads and repetitions but the anchoring seems to more pleasant and soothing. The ads are annoying especially the one which says 'Sabse bada Kabbadi' and Sleevless Sarsa is too immaturish. They ask stupid and below standard question for polls and expect the audience to type their view and send it across them.. Today morning the question sounded like " Which is the most comfortable clothing during summer? Options were a) Lungi b) Pyjama c) Patte Chaddi... and 89% of Bangalore voted for c) Patte Chaddi.. True !!!!
I do understand that by using phrases like ' correct answer type madi.. sms madi.. prize win madi...' they are trying to connect to the larger Kannada audience in Bangalore who never speak pure Kannada. Its likely to harm the coming generation with kids neither speaking pure English nor pure kannada. Its a fact that one year old kids are taught to speak English before they get the taste of their mother tongue and mothers restrict communication to 'Only in English' even at homes.. It high time people realise the need to preserve the value for their mother tongue.
Inspite of using half Kannada, Mirchi doesn't play Kannada songs.. Only on Sundays, I guess.. Looking at the situation, I feel Rainbow FM is better and Radio City is doing a good job with good English. Bangalore must go for a full time Kannada FM. Mirchi has ofcourse helped to learn some Kannada and it gets easier to relate as English comes in between.. Mirchi takes the hell out of me with irritating noise and I especially avoid it if i am preparing to sleep.. Its Sakkath Bakwaas Maga !!!
