If one goes by the yardstick of a casual conversation with Malishka, the lady doesn't have too difficult a job at RED FM.She's witty, spontaneous, loves to talk, always has a range of topics to hold forth on and flits glibly from one theme to another - just as smoothly as she does on her show Morning No 1, which celebrated its second birthday on RED FM on 1 August 2007.What differentiates Malishka from the rest of her tribe and endears her to the man on the road is her candid, easy-to-approach style that's completely sans pretensions. Her fans also include the city's celebs, movers and shakers, but Malishka's halo of fame sits lightly on her crown of curls, as she makes light of her popularity.For the last few days, Malishka has been even more actively involved in pushing her radio station's tag line 'bajaate raho' - visiting different areas in the city, listening to citizens' woes, lending a sympathetic ear and reflecting the angst of the people. From 'bubbly' RJ to 'the voice of the people', Malishka has traveled a fair distance. She shares the experience with  radioandmusic.com in a conversation.

Excerpts:

How has your stint at RED FM thus far been?

At the risk of mouthing cliches, it's been wonderful. After my earlier stint with radio, I was not very keen on returning. I was scared they would be expecting as much or more after that. Also, I wasn't ready to return to the rat race. But then, the people at RED FM convinced me with their philosophy, and things somehow just fell into place! As the station tag line goes, it's a station for 'expression', which can take many forms. I have realised in the last two years that there are people dying to raise their voices over several issues. The station has now become a platform for them, but the tone remains fun. Also, we don't promise solutions, we try to connect our callers to those who can make a difference or we try to get replies from people concerned.

At any given point of time, who knows just who could be listening in?

You have always valued your privacy. Are you still as anonymous as you would have liked to be, with all the outdoor stints you are doing for the Bajao campaign?

(laughs) To a limited extent, yes! I have enjoyed
