Story Behind Chimes Radio

Chimes Radio™ is an attempt by a group of dedicated media enthusiasts to build an online platform for the entertainment of kids. The idea originated when the founders got disheartened from listening to the mainstream music and grown-up conversations on popular radio stations.

School runs and long drives meant constantly changing channels to find something suitable for kids. This led to an honest attempt by the team to create an alternate source of entertainment which was appropriate for this age group while not pushing the kids down the path of screen viewing which is the other nemesis of our digital era.

Result is Chimes Radio™ which helps enhance kid’s imagination and creativity through story telling, interactive sessions with RJs while providing a variety of national and international music to play, dance and relax.
