CLAIM: A message on social media claims that ISRO has made it possible for users from across the world to listen to several radio stations from any country. It further congratulates ISRO for the achievement and reads:

“Now you can listen to world wide radio even without ear phone!!! This is from Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) when you click the link, you can see the globe rotating. There are green dot on which you simply touch you can start listening to live radio from that place. Try your local radio!!
Simply Amazing!!! ?Proud of OUR ISRO.”

The message also attached the link where one can listen to the various stations.

The message has been shared by multiple users on Twitter, time and again.

TRUE OR FALSE?

Well, Radio Garden does let the users hover over the globe and choose the country they want to listen music from, but ISRO has very little to do with this.

According to an article published in Verge in 2016, Radio Garden is a “transnational radio knowledge platform” which has been designed by Studio Moniker in Amsterdam and developed by Netherlands Institute of Sound and Vision.

The site has other sections: History, jingles and stories for better customer experience and interaction.
