On Thursday evenings, there would be a movie aired on Radio and people would gather around the radio to sit and listen to an entire movie on air! Infact, the local bazaar would close early because no one was interested in shopping that evening. Interestingly, radio was also a form of communication for our soldiers on the border who would dedicate songs to their wives and families through radio; a sign that they were safe.
