Radio on Wheels rolls into Jhapa

- ARJUN RAJBANSHI, Jhapa

Jun 13, 2018-The second iteration of Radio Kantipur’s campaign Radio on Wheels rolled into Jhapa, on Monday. The two-week long campaign was kickstarted from Birtamode and Damak on its inaugural day.

The first day of the event saw performances by singers Kamal Khatri and Mandavi Tripathi. Over the two-hour long performance, Mandavi performed renditions of songs such as Maat Lagyo Maat Lagyo, Dhalkyo Dhalkyo, Taakan Tukan, and Simple Simple Kanchhi ko, among others. While Kamal sang songs like Jaaunla Relaima, Aatma Ma, Chokho Maya, and more.  The campaign will travel to 12 other cities across the country, like Dharan, Itahari and Biratnagar, among others. The campaign will entail live music shows, caricatures, game shows and various interactive programmes.

“It’s part of our approach to reach out to our audiences in the country’s new political set up. We will also be broadcasting live via Facebook,” Dinesh DC, station manager of Radio Kantipur, said. Accompanying the Radio Kantipur team on tour will be artists Pratap Das, Kamal Khatri, Mandavi Tripathi, and caricature artist and radio presenter Asish Thakur. During the tour, the team will also run live programmes in local languages. “We will be interacting with the local people in their own language as well as in Nepali, so that they can better identify with the programme,” DC said.

Established in 1998 with a three-hour slot in the national portal of Radio Nepal, Radio Kantipur today is broadcast live in all provinces.
