cracking tale about an Indian radio station that makes the Falkland Islands Radio Service look like CNN.
Electrical engineer Raghav Mahato runs a wildly popular pirate radio station in impoverished Bihar state using a transmitter he built for the princely sum of $1.
His makeshift studio consists of a few ancient cassette machines linked by a spaghetti soup of wires held together with sellotape.
If that studio shorts out, Raghav would doubtedlessly be burnt to a crisp.
Radio doesn't get more grassroots than this.
If anyone in the blogosphere has a direct link with Raghav, let me know. I'd be delighted to pay for a complete overhaul of his studio.
