FRICTION WINS BEST RADIO SHOW AT UK AMA’S 2009
The award for his show ‘Friction’ on BBC Asian Network was presented as the stars of the Asian Music scene gathered at the Royal Festival Hall in London. BBC Asian Network’s Ameet Chana, who hosts the Bhangra show ‘Breakdown’, was also nominated in the same category.
Bobby said, “The award is great recognition of all the hard work that the team and I do to ensure the show delivers unique and original material that outside of the Friction show, you don’t get to hear anywhere else.”
Playing the best Asian beats and highlighting new and unsigned music, Bobby’s show is weekdays (except Weds) on the national digital radio station BBC Asian Network, has long been recognised for championing new and established British Asian music.
The Friction show was recognised with a SONY Gold Award in 2007, adding to the two SONY’S Bobby had previously won (one with Nihal).
Friction’s dedication to music and passion for spotlighting new, old and breakthrough artists, coupled with his global appeal makes him a true ambassador for the Asian music scene.
