Go on-air, land a job.

Last friday, I was listening to Darius on Route 91 on FM on the way home from work. He had an interesting story to tell. The previous week, he had put on-air a certain guy who had requested a song. This guy told Darius that though he had good marketing skills, he was not able to land a job coz he was visually impaired. An executive, Mr.Sebastian(hope I got the name right) from Sobha Developers who was tuned in to the show, got in touch with Darius, contacted this guy, called him for an interview and gave him a job. Darius put both of them on air, and gave the guy a chance to thank Mr. Sebastian on air.

I felt good.

Feel Good factor at its best. Isn't this what life is all about?

Oh, and what a journey 91FM has made from the "personal" days of Vaasanthi and Darius to the alienation of 91.1

Agree with Swati, 91FM Bangalore was much better than even the best channels in Bombay and Delhi when I first moved here in 2004...
