Radio Transcripts Volume – 3

(Vividh Bharati: Aaj Ke Fankaar-II & Special Bhoole Bisre Geet)

by Sujoy Chatterjee

When N Ramaswamy recently mentioned that Sujoy Chatterjee has transcribed about 1,000 radio and TV programs from various sources, the first thought that came to my mind was that this a gold mine! It must be published. Luckily, Sujoy agreed. This is the third of a series.

From his preface:

    Listening to radio has been the author's favourite pastime since childhood. From early 21st century, with the arrival of the personal computer and the traditional mobile phone, he took his hobby to the next level, that is, he started making transcripts of radio and television programmes that were somehow related to film music. The transcribed information mostly comprises of biographies and interviews of artists, transcripts of programmes presented by them, and record of trivia and interesting incidents related to the making of film songs, and other additional details.
    Over the years, the number of transcripts crossed the thousandth mark. The information base thus created is massive. This book is the first Volume of the Series entitled ‘Radio Transcripts’ that includes transcripts of programmes broadcast over Vividh Bharati Service (VBS) on special occasions and those broadcast or telecast over few other radio and television channels.

    If you are looking for some never-heard-before and at the same time reliable information about film-related Radio Programmes, you will enjoy the series.

Pages 334, 6 in by 9 in, transcripts in Roman script and Hindi/Urdu language.
