Hello, my Dear Friends!

Home to School without FM music

I would get ready for school listening to all the Classical stuff on Radio and walk out of home to the bus stop. There was literally no music (except for the music room at school which is another story and I shall be visiting it some other time) when I traveled from home to school. Can you imagine there was no Radiomirchi or RedFM, Fever 104.4 etc or any other of the FM channels in India today…as there was no FM radio at all?

Bollywood Hits…. but not on my radio…

When I got back home I would get to hear the then latest Bollywood music like “I am a disco dancer, Qurbani Qurbani Qurbani, disco deewane aha etc. And can anybody’s guess how I listened to these latest so-called hits, (more…)

Early Morning Radio and MS Subbulakshmi

The Doctor who heals with music…

Can a doctor be a musician and practice music therapy?

Hello…..!! I am Dr. ASK. That stands for Dr. Anand Shankar Kannapur. I use music as a therapy in the sick patients that I care for.

Well, I’m into music from my childhood. At a point in time, it looked that music will be my profession! But then things were to change course a lot and I ended up making myself a doctor. Yes, a doctor who treats sick patients. But I’m clawing back into making music more than just my one-time hobby.

I trained hard and long and became a super qualified doctor, quite popular with my patients I must say, and I did well in the field of medicine. (more…)
