Apropos your informative article “Radio rebirth” (October 2012), it is time an Indian company made a radio that is capable of catching audio from TV channels. Some Chinese radios with this feature are available for Doordarshan’s terrestrial channels like DD I and DD Metro, but their performance leaves a lot to be desired. However, on DTH one can listen to radio programmes on televisions, but the reverse is still a tough task. The government should give a boost to radio in the country by making FM available without antennae and making all broadcasts digital. Companies, meanwhile, must try and make radio sets of different sizes and shapes for the convenience of people. There is still no substitute for the radio, which allows one to do many things while listening and enjoying programmes on it. Television, however, requires concentration on the part of the viewer. Plus, radio does not affect eyesight and is very affordable.
