About Radio Nasha
Currently there is no radio station that does justice to the excitement, romance and attitude of the magical eras of 1970s-1990s. Radio Nasha 107.2 FM was launched in Delhi in March 2016 and Radio Nasha 91.9 FM in Mumbai in April 2016. Radio Nasha is the first ever radio station packed with passion, fueled by Bollywood celebrities and driven by RJs with a style that is young, energetic and classy. The station makes retro ‘cool’ and is the destination station for listeners. Celebrity programming is a key differentiator and intrinsic to the content strategy.
For the first station in the history of radio Bollywood celebrities of the stature of Anil Kapoor (Jhakaas Mornings), Shakti Kapoor (Crime Master Gogo show), Satish Kaushik (Filmy Calendar Show) and Amit Kumar (Crazy for Kishore) became RJs to host daily flagship shows.
