Program Details - 2005
Bangla Betar is
a very popular radio station in Sydney among the Bengali community. I
recently visited the studio at Paddington and met the producer and
director of Ruposhi Betar, Mr. Syed Rafiqul Haque (Sagor) and Assistant
Director, Atiqur Rahman. Their program can be heard on the station 89.7
FM at 1-3:00 PM, every Saturday. This program has been broadcasting
regularly for the past two years. In this program, they broadcast
different Bengali and children’s songs, news, dramas and interviews.
Sometimes they broadcast songs sung live by various local artists from
Sydney which gives listeners a different taste in music. So, stay tuned
on 89.7 FM! We wish Ruposhi Betar success in years to come. Photos...
