The Serious Qs!
- How did you start your radio career?
My radio career started in 1993 with Radio Festival doing the breakfast show & 1994 Rhythm Radio doing the drive time show both being RSL stations. During this period it had made a huge impact for the Leicester listeners & Asian radio in whole and it was during this time that I was able to create my very own style of broadcasting and many of the features are now embedded on ‘The 6-2-8 Show’ on Sabras! Remember there was no social media to boost up the ego, one had to be creative, professional and do some real ground work!
- What can listeners expect from your radio show?
The 6-2-8 show is a prime time tailor made light entertainment for the evenings.
My improvised features in part one of the show include traffic & travel updates, business & financial updates, my weekly hit-lister song, a Bollywood masti competition which ends 7.45pm where one lucky listener will get a live call from me.
Also every night a feature of ‘What’s Cooking in Your Kitchen?’ where the listener can contribute their evenings cooking tips!
In part 2 of the show the competition continues with an update of the days sports headlines & at 7.25pm a quick look at the events diary & from 7.30pm A very special feature to slow down the evening with ‘Love in the City’ 30 minutes of the finest love tunes!
- Wednesday is mid week retro night playing the finest 70s & 80s songs & a singing competition.
Thursdays special feature also includes choice of one listeners Ghazal choice song to be played in part two.
Friday is a magical evening of 70s & 80s retro songs including some of the best in disco songs & in part two rewind to some of the amazing Amitabh Bachchan retro film songs.

The listeners are the ones that make my show a success ,so each show to me is like my first ever show making it a memorable experience
