Gurgaon gets a blast from the past: Radio Nasha hosts living legend Asha Bhosle

MUMBAI: Radio Nasha is India’s first ‘cool retro’ station which presents the best of ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s. Based in two prime cities Mumbai and Delhi, the station already has more than 8.4 million listeners to its credit in both the cities in less than a year of its launch.

107.2 FM Radio Nasha, Delhi, hosted the coolest retro concert that the city has ever seen with none other than the nightingale herself Asha Bhosle. The last Empress performed for live audience in Delhi after almost seven years. This was her farewell tour and perhaps one of her last live performances in Delhi. The concert was held on 25 February 2017, at the Ambience Island grounds in Gurgaon and lasted for close to three hours.

The concert was graced by performances from Javed Ali and Mika Singh who accompanied Asha Bhosle in her spectacular performance. Javed Ali set the mood for the rest of the evening by opening for the living legend. Asha Bhosle began the concert with a Lata Mangeshkar song, ‘Lag Ja Gale’ and then proceeded to mesmerize the audience with some of her best melodies including ‘Chura Liya hai’, ‘Dil Cheez Kya Hai’ and ‘In Aankhon Ki Masti’. The concert ended on a high note with Asha Bhosle, Javed Ali and Mika along with the host RJ Anmol making the audience dance to the tunes of ‘Monica... Oh my darling!’

Radio and Entertainment, HT Media Ltd CEO Harshad Jain said, “Radio Nasha as a brand is known for its firsts in the Radio industry. From bringing the Superstars of Bollywood as Radio Nasha RJs to playing seven songs back to back in the drive time to giving the biggest gratifications on radio, Radio Nasha has become the destination station for listeners and advertisers alike. In less than a year, Radio Nasha has become the number two station in Delhi in both share and time spent listening.

“Radio Nasha created the new category of ‘Cool Retro’ in India and there is no one better who epitomizes ‘Cool Retro’ than Asha Bhosle. Hosting a concert with her was a matter of enormous pride and honour for us. This concert was our endeavour to deliver an experience of a lifetime to all our stakeholders, listeners and advertisers. We would like to thank our listeners and sponsors for making the concert a grand success and look forward to hosting many more such concerts in the future.”
