'SHOWTIME' with Shaista Every Thursday morning from 10am to 12noon. Playing you all the latest Bollywood hits and taking you on a trip down memory lane...
10.00 - I play the latest Bollywood songs just out and often have a morning 'chai shai' topic or question, nothing too heavy, light hearted stuff to do with everyday life.
10.30 - Thursday Throwback, I play old songs mostly from the 60's, 70's and 80's.
11.00 - In The Spotlight, in this segment I choose a certain celebrity from Bollywood or Pakistan and play songs related to the person and also talk about the person's life and their achievements etc.
11.30 - Juxebox, the last half hour is where everything goes, I play all kinds of songs; punjabi, geet, ghazals, qawali, bhangra, Pakistani artists and so on!
From a very young age I developed a passion for music, I would go as far as saying that music, along with sher-o-shayiri was perhaps my first love!
I love all kinds of desi music, from Bollywood to Qawali and everything in between as long as the lyrics are meaningful! Being a sentimental cancerian, I'm happiest when surrounded by friends and family.
I'm a fun loving, outgoing and somewhat crazy personality with a touch of OCD thrown in...I like everything to be clean, tidy and organized! I am a Management and HR graduate and spent quite a few years working in high level management.
I am now the mother of two testing teenagers! I am really enjoying presenting on Awaz FM, being part of the Awaz fm team and entertaining the Asian community of Glasgow. My favourite quote is..."The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart!"
