A number of visitors to my blog come as a result of searching for “des pardes radio”. Well, des Pardes is the name of my blog, and I have been writing about radio in a couple of my posts. So, like a good netizen, let me tell the people who lose their way and land up at this page, that Des Pardes is a desi radio program broadcast from CIAO 530 AM in Toronto area. It has excellent programming but has nothing to do with this site. But, since I am a radio aficionado myself, I found myself searching for Internet radio stations broadcasting Hindi music without too many strings attached — pop-ups, ads, spyware, have been turning me off from Internet radio. Well, I was successful in locating as many as 16 stations (at the time of writing this) available over the internet that can be listened to without as much as opening your browser for the feed (with a couple of exceptions). These come from places as varied as New Zealand, Mauritius and Netherlands. So, here is my radio page. Enjoy round the clock Hindi music, and let me know if I missed anything.
In addition to the 16 music stations, there are audio news feeds from 7 news channels, and also links to audio from two Toronto stations broadcasting “part-time” Hindi music, including Des Pardes radio programme. I am looking forward to making this list more exhaustive — but no excessive ad-serving and pay-to-listen stations.
