...don't hear 'Indian Classical' too very much here - just beautiful - Thanks so much !
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/13/16 7:37pm Ike:

I agree, that Indian classical show on WKCR on Sundays at 7 p.m. is quite good (though I haven't tuned in to it much lately).

This is splendid.

For a couple bars there, it sounded like Indian calypso. So sort of East & West Indian at the same time.

This is more Hindi music than Geet Mala on WVKR, even! DJ Padma's show is just two hours, though.
