Sayaji FM, MSU’s online radio station, will reach more ears this academic year, commencing June 15. The students’ radio station, which was adopted by MSU in March this year but used to run from the residence of its founder Yogesh Jangir due to lack of space on campus, will now get a place in the prestigious Smt. Hansa Mehta Library building.
Dedicated interns from the Student Internship Programme launched last year will churn out fresh content.
Currently, there are more than 40 dedicated interns from all the faculties. There are 12 RJs, selected from the ‘RJ hunt programme’ that conducted on the campus last year. Students use the recording studio of Faculty of Performing Arts. Interviews of prominent personalities of Vadodara, audio clips of important lectures, and light music programmes are in the schedule list.
Jangir said, “With this dedicated space for our radio, we will produce more interesting content which can be useful to all MSU students. We are surprised that former students of MSU, who are settled outside India are listening to our programmes. We are uploading our content on the third party online websites at present, but we are working on application which will make the access easy.”
“Students who are working as interns are very dedicated… they are also working during the vacation,” he said.
MSU Syndicate member Jigar Inamdar said, “We have adopted Sayaji FM as an official radio station of MSU. This year, we have allotted space in Smt. Hansa Mehta Library to this team. Right now, it is an online radio and we will experiment with the same format… our plan is to make it a full-fledged radio station for MSU.”
Aditya Hore (19), student of first year of Bachelor of Commerce, who is working as an intern on the radio platform, said, “I was selected as RJ to work with radio project during my internship programme… it was a very useful learning as RJ.”
