on Radio !!!

I cant believe I almost passed the chance of being on radio !

Got a call from Radio City asking if I could be on air the next morning (day before). They were having a show on Bangaloreans doing things a little differently. And I got called for biking to work and because of BumsOnTheSaddle

Didnt think too much about this, was only worried about screwing up as this was going to be a live show ! What if you say something wrong, what if you are unable to say anything - in front of tons of Bangaloreans !!! Sheesh. What a way to start a day.

RJ Vasanthi at the Radio city studio - in action

But then I must admit it was one helluva experience. It was the Breakfast show, with the award winning RJ Vasanthi who was extremely nice and made me comfortable in no time at all :) The next time you are listening to the Radio City Breakfast show this is what Vasathi is doing - playing music, checking sms's which are pouring onto here system, taking calls from listeners, figuring out what to talk next to the guest on the show, drinking coffee, taking personal calls and chatting away with the guest and at the same time doing short segments on the show like traffic update etc etc. All at the same time. Kinda incredible !

Moral of the story - never say no to things like this. Go. Experience !

Just when I was starting to get comfortable and was all loosened up to talk it was all over ! Sigh.
Did manage to talk a little bit about the bicycling scene in Bangalore and what it takes to bicycle to work. Wish I had a more planned agenda. Figured Radio is a really powerful medium that can reach so many people at once ! Next time :)

came out to a familiar Bangalore scene. Traffic Jams. Sigh !
Balloon pricked.

TVs Still rule compared to the radio. A quick look at Google Analytics stats after this short interview on radio showed

Till date nothing has generated traffic like the interview on CNN IBN did. Interesting huh.

sachinmaiya: Bikes rule!

Excellent! hope that more people will cycle to work. Bangalore is fairly flat to all these things. Cambridge is waking up to the sad truth that more people are moving to cars from bikes because there are improper facilities inspite of being the best cycling town in the country. Public transport is not reliable either and traffic jams are plenty inspite of the many cycles in town. Better cycle to work people.

hope so too !!

Surprising that folks in Cambridge are moving from bikes to cars ! Something that we need to address here too - cycling facilities.

sachinmaiya: Re: Bikes rule!

Yes. The bus service to go out of cambridge is terrible. The "value for money" of british travel is pathetic and is the worst in Europe (I am sure that it is the worst in Western Europe -- quoting Economist here). £10 per week to travel to work. Takes me 1 hr each way, cold weather waiting and is highly unreliable. In fuel efficient car (15kms per liter -- there are better ones), it will cost me the same and take me 15 mins. What crap! This is the state of Europe's pseudo politicised interest in carbon footprinting. All a farce. The political solution seems to be to tax the cars!!! There are no decent cycle routes and it takes 1 hr with great uphill effort at times to get here.

Awesome buddy.. Just awesome..
I do second one of the comments above - it will be great if we get to hear the recording.
In response to one of the other comments above :- UK is far better place when it comes to public transport. US really lacks it.. There are hardly a few city buses which run empty most of the times & almost everyone has a car or two here. Bikers are very very limited :(

:) Should dig up the recording and post it !
