Mirchi Mehak, whose show is on air daily from 8 am to 12 noon, is little Miss Sunshine and although she believes in the goodness of people, she does not hesitate in calling a spade a spade. Mirchi Rafia, who hosts the late afternoon show from 3 pm to 7 pm, is the crazy, bold and confident girl everyone wants to know. Mirchi Vijdan, who is on air from 7 pm to 10 pm, is Kashmir’s own boy whose USP is to be able to crack a joke with a completely straight face. Everyone’s favourite RJ, Mirchi Sayema, entertains listeners during the 12 pm to 3 pm time band. All Mirchi RJs very active on all social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter where they can be easily reached.

The music that will play on the station is a combination of contemporary Bollywood hits and popular Punjabi numbers with a specially curated list of independent pop numbers mixed in. The content which has been created around a Kashmiri phrase – Assivti Lassiv (loosely translated to “smile and prosper”) –is expected toresonate with the locals. Mirchi promises to keep listeners hooked by taking up discussions on topics that are relevant to the youth of today and also entertaining them with celeb chats, comedy and infotainment.
