Radiosai is a medium blessed by Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, to uplift human values in the society. This radio service was started in the year 2001, on the occasion of Baba’s 76th birthday celebrations. Initially, this service was made available on the World Space satellite radio as a free channel. As the years went on, the response that it had from thousands of devotees from across the globe, immensely inspired the Radiosai team. And eventually, with the blessings of Bhagawan Baba, Radiosai extended its broadcasting services through the internet also.
Radiosai today, has 6 different streams – Asia, Africa, Ameri, Discourse, Bhajan and Telugu, that offer a variety of programs that bring out the message of pure love given by Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, to the entire humanity. Under the able guidance of Padmashree Dr. G. Venkataraman, eminent scientist and former Vice Chancellor of the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning , the Radiosai team offers spiritual programs that enable every human being to follow the path of Dharma and spread the joy of love, peace and harmony.
In February 2011, Baba gave His Divine consent and blessings to start a 24 hr radio channel that would broadcast programs specifically telugu. This Radiosai Telugu channel was launched on July 15th 2011, on the auspicious Gurupoornima day and is now growing at a rapid pace.
