Everyone who gathered at the All India Radio station here on Tuesday had memories to share of their favourite medium of entertainment that celebrates its platinum jubilee year.

Former Supreme Court judge S. Mohan who released the platinum jubilee souvenir recalled his younger days when radio was the only medium of communication and entertainment.

“I was moved by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s speech, broadcast after Mahatma Gandhi’s death. Radio has been a launch pad for renowned musicians,” he said.

A special postal cover, carrying a photograph of the AIR station in Chennai and a brief description about its services, was released exclusively for the occasion.

S.K. Agarwal, additional director general, AIR, south zone, elaborated on the digitisation of the stations that was aimed at better quality of broadcasting.
