What we do?

“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” – Marcus Garvey

There is no better way to bring you the songs from Indian Cinema and Music Albums with some knowledge. The time of missing radio from India is gone now. You can listen to Shuddh Desi Radio anytime, anywhere.

We are mainly an internet streaming radio that streams Bollywood music and Indian regional music, we also cover events that relate to Indian Culture (desi) and Indian art form or events that are near and dear to you in your local community. We bring on our radio shows and guests of locally, internationally renowned artists, doctors, educators, administrators, politicians, political candidates etc. We are always looking for feedback to continuously improve our programs. Please go to Contact Us and send us your feedback. 


We are continuously working in bringing new shows where local talent can be promoted. We brought the programs with local singers, programs where RJs were kids. Look out for our blogs to know what new talent shows are coming in the town. 


India is a country of rich culture where people of more than one religious cultures lives together. The property of togetherness among people of various cultures and traditions has made India, a unique country. In India, the language changes every 50 miles. With such diversity in language it is difficult to cover the culture of the country in just one language.

Shuddh Desi Radio recognizes the fact that musical and cultural heritage of India that dates back to several centuries need to be presented in different languages. This is why there is regional segment in different languages. We are adding one language every month so stay tuned to see what is new.


Our Story



We have been in the US for more than a decade and the one thing that we miss the most with our morning cup of tea is Hindi music, obviously other than company of our family. So we started looking for options to connect to our roots through music and there came in Gaana, Saavn, Pandora and didn’t we love it??? However, we still missed those nostalgic voices of RJs like Ameen Sayani, Naved, Malishka. A thought sparkled…. why not bring our own Indian Radio Channel to the Music City?

We may not be able to bring the authentic voices of Ameen Sayani, Naved, Malishka but we can certainly bring back some memories and re-live the radio sessions that we enjoyed so much back in India in our own desi style. This is our infinitesimal effort to connect to different communities with each other through gup-shup and music, a platform for small businesses to reach out to the radio listeners with their customized service or products, spread the word for unique and interesting finds, updating you all with the latest trends, international and local news.

Tune in to brighten up your day with our customized music selection and some mirchi masala. We kick off the show with our all-time favorite, obviously the Bollywood music!!

I have been fortunate to be born in a family where music runs as passion since many generations. My maternal great grandfather loved singing and listening to music, my maternal grandmother being a music teacher, my mother being Sangeet vishaarad/Radio TV artist. With God's grace and my family's encouragement I was able to do Masters in Hindustani Classical Vocal and am a B-High grade singer in All India Radio in Gujarat, India. I also am an approved announcer at All India Radio, Gujarat. I am so glad to be part of Shuddh Desi Radio team to be able to convey my love for Gujarati literature and music. I am a mother of two beautiful and talented toddler girls who also happen to love music and art. I hope the passion is followed by many generations to come.
