MY FIRST DAY ON RADIO
It was a great feeling to go live on air as a Radio Jockey for Community Radio, Radio MUST on 107.8 FM. I had butterflies in my stomach at the beginning because believe me being an RJ is not as easy as it appears to be.
I have anchored events in the past, but even after being exposed to this kind of anchoring, I feel that RJing was real tough and certainly this is not a cakewalk.
You need to be impromptu, You need to have a strong content, You need to speak within a time limit alloted, You need to be a good presenter. These are a few qualities that one needs to own/ possess to be a successful RJ. But believe me....I have none of these qualities but certainly trying to attain all of these traits some day. I am certain that Rjing a show on Commercial Radio is more challenging as compared to Community Radio.
There are loads of people who take up anchoring/ hosting as a profession BUT for me it is simply giving a chance to my hobby and I certainly do not intend to make this a career. Its only a leisure pursuit!
So all you Mumbaikars, if you want to listen to me, you would have to tune in to MUST Radio only on 107.8FM. So lets meet up there....
Until my next article, take good care of yourself and God Bless!
