The MJ Show #116 (...Featuring Norah Jones)

I know it's been a long long time since we had an episode of The MJ Show.
I apologize for that. Have just been very busy shooting my first tv series. I'm anchoring a music reality show for Zee Business now and it's been a lot of fun traveling with them shooting the episodes.
The show will start from the 16th of October (this saturday) and it's on air at 9pm. It repeats the next day (sunday) at 10am.
Also I've been busy with the new radio show - One Mumbai One Music on 94.3 Radio One. I hope you've caught a few episodes of that. I've had some fabulous guests on my show so far and I've got some more great guests coming in soon. 
That being said, I apologize once again for not putting up anything for so long :)
Let me rectify that a bit now with the fab album preview for you.

Brilliant new album that features Norah Jones along with some incredible singers is being released in November. Here's a sneak preview of the album!
Make sure you go out and buy it!! It's worth every rupee!
