Adgully (AG): ‘Kasa Kai Mumbai’ has completed three years. How has the journey been so far?
RJ Salil: ‘Kasa Kai Mumbai’s journey of 3 years has been very satisfying; it has been an exhilarating ride.
RJ Archana: ‘Kasa Kai Mumbai’ has been a rollercoaster ride and an awesome journey! The show gave us an opportunity to come closer to our listeners. Salil and me in our ten year long friendship sometimes feel like a disgruntled married couple, who cannot do without each other and can’t stand each other at times!
AG: What have been some of the highpoints of your journey?
RJ Salil: Just to be able to connect with my audience and to be able to make a difference marks a highpoint for me every time. I really treasure the experience of rediscovering the medium of radio after a break of 6 years. It feels good to be reaching out to my listeners every morning with ‘Kasa Kai Mumbai’.
RJ Archana: The Musical-e-Azam where we discovered that Salil is a guitarist and sings decently as well! The fact that people find relief in our ON AIR fights is a high point!
AG: What do you think about radio as a medium and the future of radio?
RJ Salil: I think it is the way to go, because it’s pure, unadulterated and very personality driven. It is very raw unlike television where a lot of post-production goes into the making of the show.
RJ Archana: It’s the medium that was, is and will be! I am reminded of “I am Legend” where Will Smith’s only two friends after aliens took over, were his pet dog & Radio.
It is a very pure medium that demands utter honesty from your personality, rather than sensationalizing in news paper & television.
