Dear Editor,

Refer to Opinion “The power of Radio” by A G Noorani (KT September 11, 2017). It recalls in 60s a toy Radio costing Rs. 5 was available to listen local Radio Stations Delhi A, Delhi B etc by attaching its one wire to any iron made product like windows, clothes line wire etc –it was through ear plugs to listen. There was no battery in it. To my memory it had some zinc material inside it with other materials and component. It was a very small in size fits in any small pocket. I wonder if such a toy can do miracles in mobiles world of FM listening.

There is no substitute for Radio. While listening and enjoying Radio one can do many things simultaneously, which is not possible in case of TV, as one requires concentration to see it? Routine work is not suffered while listening to Radio. Eyesight is not affected at all. It is more convenient to listen to Transistors/ mobiles as one can carry anywhere and so work /routine is not affected. It is cheap as to compare TV, as there is lesser of operating cost.

To improve Radio FM should be available without antenna and other broadcast must become digital and there should be plenty of Radio sets of different sizes etc. must be available to carry it and listen it.

Radios in markets are just vanished, so sad it is now a history as FM Radio is listened through mostly mobiles now with ear plugs, which is not good for health and dangerous as youth listens it on roads while walking too. I wish to a radio with TV Sound be manufactured in India. With DTH of Prasar Bharti one can listen Radio through TV sets but reverse is not true.

I wish all mobile to have am radio stations without requiring Antena/wires etc. (with speakers built in to listen aloud.)
