All India Radio Launches New App-Based Channel for Classical Music Lovers

A new app-based audio channel of All India Radio (AIR) was launched last week which will dish out some of the best compositions in the classical music domain.

Named ‘Raagam’, the channel was launched by Prasar Bharati Chairman Surya Prakash and it will be uplinked from AIR Bengaluru station as it will get regular software updates from 13 other stations of the AIR from across the country. 

“Raagam will have specific time bands for archival assets, senior living legends, budding and upcoming artists, auditioned and approved by AIR and will also have programmes on classical music with interpretation and elucidation by musicologists of repute,” Prasar Bharati said in a statement in New Delhi and added that the classical channel is AIR’s tribute to connoisseurs.
