THR Raaga just got better

Listening to the radio in the morning can stressful – more so if one is stuck in the traffic jam and there is nothing much to do.

If that is stressful, try listening to the Tamil channel (Minnal Channel), you will be bored to death. The morning “show” is filled with very little music, plenty of motivational but unnecessary talk, news and “advices” from the DJ. It’s a “killer” but for the wrong reasons – pretty boring I have to say. The other Tamil channel – THR Raaga does not start until 10.00 am. So, I am left with either listing to my CDs or listening to English channels like Light & Easy or the Mix FM.

But luckily for me, things have changed, beginning from 1st August 2006.

THR Raaga now starts at 6.00 am with 2 of its best Indian DJs – “What’z up” Anantha and “Reggae” Uthaya making waves in the air. Their session is fun – they play both new and oldies hits, have a short game in the morning and have funny chit chat between them and the listeners.

Anantha always seem to be pulling a fast one on Uthaya. So, for the last couple of days, I have been giggling, singing (ya, that’s right) and tapping on the steering wheel listening to these 2 DJs’ show.

Anantha’s elder brother, Ram takes care of the evening session – another funny guy on air and during the right time too (time when we driving back home)

I met Anantha and Ram couple of years back, way before they went on to be the famous Indian radio DJs. They were performing at a famous Indian pub in PJ and Saturday nights was something to look out for. Ram takes care of the music and Anantha is the lead (or rather the only) singer. Sometimes they have guest singers but the crowd goes particularly for their live show (and beers of course).

It is fun to be driving to office in the morning again…

  1. hey i got an email saying that THR Raaga DJ Kumaresan [or something like that] recently got married quietly to a malay actress, forgot her name edi – true or not? is there such a DJ in the first place?

  2. Wat’s the actual story abt kumaresan. Is he really got married with aida aris or he just gave an accuse that its a movie?
    He really disspointed all the viewers and should not be in THR in case this is true. We really lost our respects towards him and THR due to this issue.
    I wonder why so many indian guys are going after other races nowadays and so many issues on convertion. Can’t our indian guys think well???

    Pls disclose Kumaresan’s matter for the benefits of all.

  3. Well Rewathy…to tell you the truth, I really do not know the “actual story” on Kumaresan. I don’t know why there is a big hoohaa on this issue either.

    If you have been listening to THR Raaga last week, Ram mentioned this on air and so, to clear the doubts, they called Kumaresan. He confirmed that it was not true and was just rumours. That’s all I know unless there is more to the rumours.

    On that part where you mentioned that you lost our respects towards him and THR due to this issue, I think you got the issues completely wrong. What Kumaresan does in his personal life should not be the yardstick to judge him on how he perform as DJ. Even he marries Aida but remains a superb DJ, there should not be an issue.

    As to your remarks “why so many indian guys are going after other races nowadays and so many issues on convertion”, well it is not easy to pinpoint the cause. But it does not mean “our indian guys” cannot think well. Everyone has his reasons and principles

    I’m totaly into late 70’s and early 80’s songs, but unfortunatly, cant’t really hear much of those songs.. yeah i get i u’ve ‘000 of listners who love the latest songs.But today’s “Yaar veetu roja” from ithaya kovil was just there my man.. hit on the spot it made me to smile and start my work with umph…
    like i said before these songs actually will make me forget all my problems, especially it will calm my emotions.

    And u know what, U both also make my day too, Uthaya youre voice.. at times really funny, and i really appreciate the fact that you guys speak good tamil. Ananda i used to see u at Bali.. long ago …. well

    okie dokie thats bout it anyway.. keep it up n spice up people’s life dudes

  25. In my view, it is a man’s absolute right to marry anyone he wishes…be it a partner from another race or otherwise. So, it is not wise to comment on another man’s personal life. Love has its mysterious ways and we can’t choose our own partners based on race or other aspects. If he is fated to be with a woman of another race, then we have no say in it.

    Thus, we as human race should respect a man’s decision to do what he thinks is right whether it is for real or not. Moreover, we DO NOT have any right to pry into another man’s personal life just on the basis that he is popular or a celebrity.

    I think we should lead a perfect life first before we can comment on the lives of others. Hence, please look back at you own lives and make sure that you lead your lives in a way that no man may comment adversely before you can point your fingers into another man’s fault.

    Everything said above is made without prejudice against anyone.

    Thank you
