‘I love talking, so I knew I would be a good RJ’

Aadvik Behl, student of Apeejay School, Model Town, speaks about hosting a radio show as Bal Bhaskar Chhota RJ at My FM 94.3 Jalandhar



Aadvik Behl, class 6 student with Apeejay School, Model Town, has excellent communication skills and a confidence far brighter for his age. It is perhaps these qualities that got him selected for the ‘Bal Bhaskar Chhota RJ’ contest initiated by My FM 94.3 Jalandhar. In an informal interview, the budding radio jockey speaks about his love for talking, the passion to connect with people and developing confidence as a radio jockey. Edited excerpts:

How did you come to know about the contest?

I was travelling with my parents in the car and it was there that I heard the advertisement for this contest on the radio channel. I was so excited about this idea. I love talking and I knew I would be great for this contest, so my father registered my name immediately. 

How does hosting a radio show feel?

I worked with RJ Garry in the radio show.  He was very frank. He made me feel very comfortable. I was nervous initially, but he made him feel at ease. It was a lovely experience speaking on the show. I spoke about a lot of things, such as my favourite subjects and my hobbies. I spoke about all this in detail while explaining how much I love science and my passion for playing basketball and soccer.

Three qualities every RJ must have

Speak clearly

Don’t be nervous, that can cause stutters

Be fluent while talking. Don’t be too fast. Be free as you speak and connect with people 

Did you share your experience with your teachers and batchmates after achieving this feat?

When I was in my class, my teacher asked me to regale my classmates with my experiences. It was a great experience.  I showed them some pictures and videos from the radio show as well. 

Would you like to become an RJ in the future?

I would love that! I think Amazing Aadvik would be a good name for my show! 

Why do you think you would make a good RJ?

I love to talk. I can talk to the audience very freely and interact with people very fluently. I think I would be good as a RJ.
