FM Tadka orders OnAir radio
Caliope is very pleased to announce that FM Tadka , a division of the Rajasthan Patrika group, a leading Hindi publisher from Jaipur, India, has ordered OnAir Radio for all its 18 radio stations all across India. The main reason for Rajasthan Patrika to order OnAir Radio is that the software from Caliope fulfilled all the requirements for managing centralized FM radio.
Operating multiple stations from 1 central location with OnAir Radio
FM Tadka wants to operate all their 18 stations from their headquarters in Jaipur. Because OnAir Radio is fully equipped for operating multiple stations from one central location, FM Tadka ordered Caliope’s OnAir Radio.

Any changes in a playlist will be automatically be picked up by the player. Commercials for all 18 stations are also planned in Jaipur and will also be automatically picked up by OnAir Radio.
