Amol Khamkar (or just Amol, as he prefers a personal touch), has been with Unity 101 since 2010 when he started accompanying his newborn son Ruhaan, whilst his wife – Gloria presented a show every Saturday! This eventually resulted in him taking a plunge to host a full-fledged show on his own upon Station Manager Kelly’s encouragement. Currently Amol co-presents a weekly programme on Saturday -Suhaana Safar. The show is all about Hindi Film Songs from 1980s to currently up to 2010 (every year one more year is added into the kitty!).
Prior to coming to the UK, Amol has been a successful media professional and media academic in his home country, India. Amol has worked with several reputable media organisations like Zee Network, Enadu TV and NDTV, producing PrimeTime television programmes; he has also taught at premier media educational institutions like Symbiosis Institute of Mass Communication, specialising in the subject – Broadcast Journalism. He taught Journalism in a university in Ethiopia, Africa. Amol is also an amateur photographer and likes capturing real life experiences and classical architecture…
Whilst Amol continues to enjoy his media spotlight at Unity 101, he also holds a responsible day job with the Southampton City Council in its Children’s Services.
Amol’s personal mission is to travel around the world to understand and learn from the humanity across the globe! To relax, Amol listens to Indian Classical Music, Jazz and Western Classical Music.
On air, Amol brings in his eternal exuberance and his own life experiences together to create quixotic amorous radio experience!
