Taj Mahal city gets its first FM
The Taj Mahal city has got its first FM radio station and that has been accompanied by a huge demand for radio sets.
With the Taj voted one of the seven new wonders of the world, the city folks had the FM Mantra blaring full volume from autorickshaws, shops and restaurants since the weekend.
After a long wait, the Jagran group's Radio Mantra was formally launched Saturday by Rahul Gupta, a director of the company, on the auspicious 07-07-07.
FM radio sets are in great demand at the Shah Talkies electronic market.
"All sets we brought from Delhi have been sold out. Inquiries are on about the latest models," said a shopkeeper, Rakesh.
The FM is expectedly proving popular with the younger set. Students have been buying cheaper headphone type FM sets costing around Rs.50 each.
