The channel will be launched by Prasar Bharati Chairman Dr A Surya Prakash, and will be live streamed through DTH and AIR website allindiaradio.gov.in. It will also be available through the All India Radio Mobile App for Windows, Android and iPhone (iOS) users.
The launch will be from Bengaluru and aims to fulfil the long felt need of classical music lovers. This is also an indigenous effort by the country’s oldest broadcaster to get connected with Indians within and outside the country and have strong embedded love for Hindustani and Carnatic Music.
Over the years, All India Radio has acquired an immensely rich repository of recordings of the old masters as well as contemporary celebrities, which will be aired on this channel.
F Sheheryar, DG, All India Radio, said, "Raagam will be available on live streaming on Internet, this will ensure wider reach and cater to the global audiences as well."
Akashvani, Bengaluru, already has the channel ‘Amrithavarshini’ dedicated to classical music.
