BBC World Service via Internet Radio

One of the services I find myself using a lot on the 3G activated phone now is the audio version of BBC World Service. (I guess given that it is audio, it would probably work quite well on 2.5G also.) I grew up listening to a lot of BBC, and listening once again to the headlines in the same sort of familiar voices feels good.

This made me wonder why there aren’t more Indian Internet radio stations – other than some of the FM ones who rebroadcast over the Internet. I am quite sure there is an opportunity to create different kinds of talk radio, perhaps along the lines of NPR in the US which can lead to some serious discussion.
