No, this isn’t a dream.
We can’t contain our excitement any longer.
We have two HUGE reasons to celebrate.
- It’s Maed in India’s 300th episode!!!
- We’re celebrating this milestone with a band that’s been the soundtrack of the lives of college students through the late 90s and early 2000s.
Mae has the iconic alt rock band Zero in the studio to celebrate 300 episodes of the show! And she’s even brought an old friend along with her too - Music Journalist, Co-founder of erstwhile NH7.in, Head of Red Bull Media House India, and #1 Zero superfan – Arjun S Ravi. They chat to Sidd, Warren, Bobby and Rajeev about their first i-Rock, about how these Dadar boys know each other, what their songs are really about (kinda) and how Zero once almost broke up. You also get to hear about how they got paid for a gig in sandwiches, a Europe tour that never happened because they weren’t “Indian enough”, using underwear as a pop filter, Buffy The Vampire slayer, leather chaps, and a whole lot more. You’ll also get to hear them perform a song that they’ve never recorded before right here on Maed in India.
