Thaalam FM on FM 93.6

Looks like we are getting another radio station. We are getting reports that a Tamil Radio Station called "Thaalam FM" is testing on FM 93.6 from 22:00 hours onwards.

We would like our fellow readers to update us if you know any news about this radio station like the type of programming expected as well as the ownership and reception in your area.

We have many Sinhala and a few Tamil Radio Stations (post has been corrected), isn't it about time that someone started a few more Tamil & English Language Radio Station's.
