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.
SHUDDH DESI RADIO
AAPKA APNA RADIO
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!!
Meet The Team
My love and passion for Music is endless. In early school days, I used to sing at many of events at my school and did get a chance to perform a live music program on television “Doordarshan”, but with the studies and IT career, never really got an opportunity to pursue this singing talent and slowly became “Kaansen” (than being “Taansen”) by listening to music. After moving to the US, I noticed that I was not the only one who was missing the music, the Radio experience from back home. With that drive to create the Radio experience for the Desi Diaspora here and with a larger intent to knit the community together and provide them infotainment options, I met an equally passionate partner and co-founded Shuddh Desi Radio!
The pathway was not there but I still chose to walk on it. The reason was unknown, the target was not so clear but my curiosity to see the end of the tunnel led me to follow the path. I am a Gen X child born in a small town in Southeast Asia. I was growing with a normal aspiration that a girl of that generation could have. However, the aspirations started taking shape and I realized in my journey one could be successful when they follow their passion. Between the home maker, teacher and corporate job my hunger of following my passion of singing took ultimate shape when I decided to start my own Radio Station - Shuddh Desi Radio. I wanted to share the joy of music, give the platform to others to express themselves to the whole world without being judged. I love Rjing and I have connected with 45000 listeners through my 700 hrs of radio shows so far.

Main lekar araha hu “chai hour” – magic door to india. Karenge chai ke sath baton he baton me India ki sair. Catch me up only on shudh desi radio. Your promise to connect I promise to entertain(jude rehne ka wada apka entertainment ka wada mera).
