Annu Kapoor’s ‘Suhana Safar’ on Radio
Radio, a medium of news and broadcast became a source of Entertainment with the great radio presenter; Ameen Sayani in 1950’s which was aired every morning addressing his listeners as ‘Behno Aur Bhaiyon’. Over the time we have come across some really big names but the presenters have now become mere Radio Jockeys. Annu Kapoor has revived those times with his hit radio show on 92.7 BIG FM with “Suhana Safar with Annu Kapoor”.
Suhana Safar with Annu Kapoor has stood out as one of those shows which does not rely on Bollywood chartbusters, but it explores and educates his listeners with tales of Bollywood from the Golden Era of the 50’s to 80’s. Annu Kapoor has been personally involved in researching the stories that he has known over his 3 decades in the industry. Stories of the struggles of Mohd. Rafi, or the start of Pancham Da has recieved tremendous response from the audience with inundated emails and tweets. With his charisma and intellect and a team of great enthusiast, Annu Kapoor has taken Suhana Safar with Annu Kapoor from a TRP of 8 to 22, making it the No. 1 Radio Show today.
It is great to see that in the age of item numbers and remixes, this show still keeps alive the sweet melodies of the yesteryears of our industry like Meena Kumari, Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Madhubala, Ashok Kumar, etc. Annu Kapoor has given rebirth to the real meaning to Radio Entertainment.
