Ishq Jam with Meha
Ishq Jam with Meha (Trailer)
Ever heard a song or a melody for the first time, that simply changed...everything? Made you stop what you were doing? Sit up straight to focus hard on the tune, so you could prolong the very feeling that the song evoked? Hopped, skipped and jumped your way to the speakers, just so you could google the song from an audible distance? Well, this clumsy madness is how I define pure love for music. And it is this love that we celebrate on my weekly podcast,Â Ishq Jam with Meha. Every week, I bring to you, in-depth conversations with and about the creators of some of the most iconic songs of the Hindi music industry. You've probably heard their names, you've definitely heard their songs, all we do, is tell you stories about them and about their iconic creations
