The craze for the music of this era is so intense that even today it is one of the most sought after music, not just among the people in the age group of 40’s and 50’s but even among the youngsters and teenagers. 

To bank on this craze many radio and TV channels are doing roaring business most popular being actor Annu Kapoor’s radio program SUHAANA SAFAR WITH ANNU Kapoor on 92.7 Big FM, which takes listeners down memory lane of Bollywood with its spicy anecdotes from Bollywood coupled with super hit songs from the 60’s and 70’s.


To take this legacy of Bollywood unheard anecdotes and interesting gossip tales to the audience another new TV channel called Epic Channel, owned by Mukesh Ambani, has roped in eminent scriptwriter and film lyricist Javed Akhtar, to host a similar program titled JAANE PEHCHAANE. The show will feature unknown behind the camera tales of movies, film stars and some spicy hidden scandals that slashed the film magazines in the past.

He is conducting two such programs viz. SITARON KI JAWAANIYAAN on Radio City 91.1 FM and SANGEET KAY SITARON KI MEHFIL" on BIG FM 92.7
