Dear musical friends !
… 1st I wish you a HAPPY HOLI ! – May your life go colourful ahead.
Its a funny coincidence that exactly on today and seven (7) years ago I started my first radio show for Indian Classics with the topic “Seasonal Ragas – Spring ragas” (see playlist: http://bit.ly/jU1GOw ). Later in January 2010 “Indian E-music… the right mix of Indian Vibes” went on air.
You still can relisten the show in IMC’s online archive (free of charge):http://www.imcradio.net/radioarchive/2006/03
Tks for all who walked on this uniquely path over last years alongside my activities and those of promotion initiative IMC – India meets Classic, which was founded in January 2005 - http://www.imcradio.net/about .
After single broadcastings in November/December in 2005 and a conceptual period of three months the test phase of regularly, monthly broadcasting started on 26th March 2006 at 03:00 pm CET (10:00 am EST / 07:30 pm Indian time) @ TIDE Radio in Hanseatic City Hamburg.
Since then more than 100 radio shows (uniquely topics) had been produced with more than 500 broadcasting hours onair (meanwhile in Austria, Switzerland and Germany via FM/cable and web radio) -http://www.imcradio.net/shortprofile .
On HOLI 2013 as the annually spring fest of India the promotion initiative IMC – India meets Classic starts its 8th year of independent media productions… a good sign I would say !
Thank’s to all my listeners around the globe and to all artists of Indian music ! – Let us share our musical passion further on…
Warm greetings by heart
