Radio Foorti!

I just got hooked with Radio Foorti — I’ve been listening to this station non-stop since yesterday. This private FM radio station is mainly broadcasting modern Bangla songs, along with band music and a bit of oldies and folk. I really liked play list — they didn’t choose to broadcast boring Rabindra Shangeet which would make people like me fall asleep. Their play list of oldies is great too, they have carefully selected once-a-super-hit songs that have great messages. They aren’t playing songs from Bangla movies, which is good. What impressed me the most is the crispy MP3 quality stereo playback, and their style of picking songs and switching genres. Purely professional!

Tune to FM 88.0 MHz if you’re and listen to Radio Foorti! As they says, “radio manei foorti”!

A cool fact that amazed me is the term “RJ” or “radio jockey”. So if I ever get a job as a RJ, then I’ll be known as RJ RJ, right? πŸ˜€

Due to overwhelming requests, I’m putting up their contact information here:

12-14 Landmark Building,
Gulshan 2, Dhaka 1212
Phone: (+88 02) 883 5747
Fax: (+88 02) 883 5746

Update on December 28:
They have started playing English and Hindi pop tracks on a program named Club Foorti. This program will be aired on every Thursday from 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM. The first English song was played yesterday on a program of RJ Nusrat — “Hips Don’t Lie” by Shakira.

Update on September 20:
Radio Foorti changed their frequency — they are now on air on 88.0 FM instead on 98.4 FM.

  • Hi Russel, From where I can buy a AverMedia FM Tuner card? Please give me the answer. Thanks in advance.

  • Dear Avijit, I got mine from Singapore, but it should be available in Bangladesh now. Make a visit to IDB Bhaban and I'm sure you can find it there.

  • To all ! yah RadioFoorti is much like CHFI of Canada. CHFI is the Most heard Radio Station in Toronto, Canada. RF and RT both have the juice from that. good luck RT and RF. but its very very annoying when they repeat the same song every day. though its good for those who miss some sessions.

  • dear, radio furti Thanx a lot to set up station in chittagong. pls clear ur voice and upgrade ur quality. play nice songs. pls set a date for playing english songs. I love radio and Radio furti. pls come with 22 hour playing time in chittagong. set a oparator in ctg who gosip with us more funny topics only for ctg. Ok Wellcome chittagong… wish u best……….

  • As asailor I use to visit lot of contries and I’ve chance to listen their F.M Stations. Now I’m proud that we have our own F.M Raddio stations, When I’m at home Ican listen good bengali songs on those stations. 8)

  • hey man… why i can't get registered with radiofoorti sms? i sent "ctg halishahar myname" to 9840 but nothin happens.. and while the chittagong calling program goes on air.. i sent "radio myname my message" but they dont get my messages.. i think they dont get… cause i sent a lot of sms in one day … and none of them was read.. any help?

  • None of the Radio Foorti online streaming links work. This is kinda sad for those of us who live abroad. Its not very hard setting up radio broadcasting over the internet. All they need is a free software like shoutcast and a good amount of bandwidth, thats it. I hope Radio Foorti authorities will look into this matter soon! πŸ™‚

  • heyyyyyyyyyy whats up?
    RJ’s plz do me a favour,

    I'm a well-wisher of diz radio station n Russell, can u send me the song Tumi amon keno by Rong….I juz luv da song a lot….

  • really itz rocking…!!! but as a new listenner, i think, after some days, it will become as usual the way that RJs are approaching…may b we meed more and obviously something very new…rather than the conventional way…anyways, keep it up and best of luck radio foorti…!!!

  • Great to read out all these comments. Thanks to Russell for his initiative. Me from Australia, hope to come back in Dhaka soon. I work for a bangla radio station in Australia, I'm really interested to work for Radio furti. Everyone says I've got a great voice…so let's see…Hope to be in the team soon.
    Cheers.
