Radio Salesian 90.8 FM, Voice of the Hills‎ - part 1

The Salesians of Don Bosco is an international men’s religious congregation started by the 19th century Italian priest St. John Bosco, or simply Don Bosco, in order to serve young people, especially the poor and the ‎disadvantaged.   The Salesians who are in India for the past 110 years, recently ventured into an uncharted territory to better serve and interact with local folks.  “Radio Salesian 90.8 FM – Voice of the Hills,”  is the new enterprise of Salesian College Sonada, in Gorabari village near Sonada town, in the Himalayan foothills of Darjeeling District in India’s West Bengal state.  The web version of the community/campus radio, mostly in Nepali language, that one can listen to online at ‎www.salesiancollege.in, was inaugurated on Oct. 28.  And its FM radio will be officially inaugurated ‎on Dec. 8.   Salesian priest, Fr. CM Paul, a qualified media veteran and enthusiast, is the brain behind and director of Radio Salesian.  To know more about the venture, we called him on his mobile phone in Sonada.  Today, Fr. Paul begins the first of this 2-part interview, by explaining in what way Radio Salesian is unique.
