Yes, “behno aur bhaiyo”, these five volumes (Nos. 46 to 50) bring to an end my most unusual audio presentation : a star-studded retrospect of my well-known count-down show of hit film songs, GEETMALA.
But, unlike the original hit-parade, the 50 volumes of “GEETMALA KI CHHAON MEIN” mainly highlighted the great songs of each year which did not reach the ANNUAL POP-CHARTS.  And each volume also brought to you memorable events and incidents relevant to GEETMALA and my own life, which even the original programme never talked about !  And each volume was also peppered with beautiful snatches of filmstar interviews !
It was a back-breaking job, but I enjoyed it - and so did listeners all over the world who managed to get hold of the volumes before they were periodically sold out.
So, this is your “radio-dost” Ameen Sayani, thanking all of you from the bottom of my heart for having bought and heard these very special audio CDs. God willing, we should keep meeting again - in different ways, at different times.  Keep listening !! (I’m still being heard on many radio stations in India and abroad.)
