Mysuru’s tryst with radio predates AIR

Even as India’s public broadcaster All India Radio (AIR) celebrated the 80th year of its naming on Wednesday, its synonym, Akashvani, owes its origin to a house at Vani Vilas Mohalla here where its owner, M.V.Gopalaswamy, began a radio broadcasting station.

A professor in psychology in Maharaja’s College, Gopalaswamy was a radio enthusiast. He set up an experimental radio station with a low-power transmitter (about 30 W), which he had procured from London,
on September 10, 1935 in his house, ‘Vittal Vihar’.
