Annual List of Binaca Geetmala 1960
Binaca Geetmala 1960 was a Radio Show that started ranking Bollywood songs every week. The show Geetmala was sponsored by Binaca (Tooth Paste) and thus it is called Binaca Geetmala. The first Binca Geetmala Annual List was aired on Radio Ceylon, the oldest radio station in the Asia, in the year 1952 and it lasted in the year 1988.
After 1988, the show was shifted to Vividh Bharati of All India Radio and proceeded until 1994. The show also broadcast the annual list of Binaca Geetmala from 1954 to 1993.
Binca Geetmala was the very first show of its kind that ranked Bollywood Songs and thus gained unbelievable popularity in India.
Ameen Sayani presented the show from its first aired to the last one and created an unbelievable record.
At its beginning in 1952, the program didn’t rank melodies, but instead played seven contemporary tunes in no specific request. Afterward, the program began positioning the most famous Hindi film tunes. The melodies were at first positioned by a mix of the quantity of records sold in India and audience votes. Fame was checked by record deals, decisions from record storekeepers, and prevalence among the shrota-sanghs or ‘audience members clubs’. Every week, the shrota-sanghs would send the radio broadcast their rundown of mainstream tunes. The clubs were shaped in light of the fact that it was workable for a record to be sold out at stores and in spite of the fact that there was interest to purchase more, the interest would not appear in record deals
The year-end records were accumulated dependent on focuses procured by melodies as the year progressed. Somewhere in the range of 1966 and 1970 there would once in a while be no focuses on the week after week broadcast, yet the year-end show would be founded on point framework
