#DidYouKnow?: Yeh Akashwani Hai

Radio came to India 13 years before All India Radio was formed! The first-ever Indian radio broadcast was by the Bombay Presidency Radio Club in June 1923. In 1927, the Indian Broadcasting Company began operations with two radio stations, but it went into liquidation in 1930, and was taken over by the Government. The Indian State Broadcasting Service then came into being. This day, 85 years ago, it became All India Radio.
