Red FM network's Redtro to play '90s music

MUMBAI: Red FM’s latest property, Redtro that was acquired under the Phase III license by the company promises to bring back the tunes of the 90s. The retro station that launched in Mumbai yesterday (22 June 2016) will be playing the 90s music, unlike its contemporaries who have selected a wider zone. Radio Nasha plays music from the 1970s, 80s and 90s while Big FM plays music from the black and white days to the late 90s.  

Another retro music FM station, Redtro, hits Mumbai airwaves

As reported by the retro station has a line-up of experienced on-air talent to run different shows. Thus, the usual Redtro day opens up with RJ Saurabh with whom you can enjoy your cutting chai with equally cutting sarcasm and tongue-in-cheek, intelligent humor. Then enters, RJ Pritam, the former ‘Big Boss’ contestant, who will share the most sizzling gossip. He will not stop at this, Pritam will also teach you the trick of wooing a woman, daily from 11am to 2 pm. Afternoon is taken over by RJ Palak who is your shot of inspiration – the epitome of adventure. RJ Sudarshan is the man about town who will tell you Mumbai’s pulse – what’s trending, every evening. Finally, RJ Rhicha, the connoisseur of 90’s music will have a heart-to-heart conversation with you every night.

Commenting on this new development, Red FM COO Nisha Narayanan said, “I’m elated to hear Redtro 106.Chaar! Experimenting with formats and genres and bringing relevant innovation to programming is core to our strategic line of thinking. We have been dabbling with the idea of a retro music station for quite some time now. While there’re so many new players making a foray in the market and we aim to grow the market with our newest offering, we were very clear in our minds that we’ve to create a marked differentiation in the way retro is perceived. And that’s how Redtro 106.Chaar was born. A format radio channel, Redtro 106.Chaar aims to diversify retro space and focus on the music of the 90s. It is clearly, “Aaj ke zamaane ka retro station”! With Red FM being India’s favourite contemporary hits radio station, and Redtro going retro, we believe we have a strong and powerful proposition for our listeners and our advertisers alike. All that’s left to say is ‘Phir Bajao’!

Redtro 106.Chaar is Red FM network’s second radio station in Mumbai. It was acquired in Phase III auctions along with eight more stations, namely, Srinagar, Jammu, Jodhpur, Chandigarh, Amritsar, Patna, Surat, and Chennai.
