Making a dent in the universe!

June 1st, 2007 (08:58 am)

In my quest to keep from getting bored, I have constantly tried to involve myself into new things and one such
thing which i started a year back was RadioVeRVe. When we did start it i never assumed it would grow into such an integral part of my life, its almost become bit of an identity.

These days whenever i meet people i never forget to mention "That i run my own independent internet radio station", this is partly because i get the "oh how cool" from all the pretty chicks but also because it is something i am damn proud of!

Today we are launching the all new RadioVeRVe, the sparkling new things are

1) New carnatic classical radio station- RadioVeRVe-Classical
2) New Konkani radio station- RadioVeRVe-Konkani
3) New Gospel Radio Station- RadioVeRVe-Gospel
4) Brand new website made by the ultra cool Ganesh Rao.

Afaik, We are probably the first in India to have such an ensemble with rj content!

So head over there and give it a test run, and let me know if you like something or if you would like something to be changed and i will gladly do the needful! And yes spread the word!

I think TAAQ put it well:

All of this stage is the world
And all of us are little people
And suddenly
Unexpectedly
We are here…
When you’re asleep, are you alive
Or just a dream in the sky, so high in the sky
You’re a poor little mouse in a white maze
Under a microscope that you made
And suddenly
Unexpectedly
You’ll find your way out.


Maybe, just maybe this is our way out to the world!

RadioVeRVe- Just Tune in!

Listened to it for a long time this afternoon. Liked it a lot. But *I* personally, need variety in my music, so I want a old Hindi songs channel and an old Tamizh song channel and.....!

Which brings me to the question..how are you making money from this, when the key word on anything on the net seems to be, "free"?

Enough money is being made through ads, sponsorships and in-kind stuff to keep RadioVeRVe going.

But this is not a profit making venture yet - that is if you count profits in terms of money. In terms of exposure for the artists whose music is being played on RadioVeRVe, it makes a LOT of profit.

RadioVeRVe will eventually make money profits, too, but until it does, ads and sponsorships will hopefully keep things going.
