The highlight of this programme was a footage of rare interview of Shri Milon Gupta who was interviewed by his student Shri Saikat Mukherjee- another excellent harmonica player and teacher who successfully trained many harmonica players. The CD of this interview was sourced from Milon da's son Shri Sanjay Gupta. Milon da played some interesting numbers on the Harmonica during the interview. The audience was mesmerised by the melodious renditions of Milon da. Those harmonica lovers who could not attend this programme may view this interview with English sub titles below.

HaLoH thanks the visitors and all the members for the success of this programme. Special thanks to Shri Sanjay Gupta and Smt Sujata Dutta, son and daughter of Milon da respectively who personally called HaLoH and offered their best wishes for the programme.

i think it was 1989 or after that years when doordarshan used to show regional language program in a small time slot and that time we used to switch off the TV as other language programs were not that interesting . once i switched off the TV and after some time open the TV and to my surprise this interview was running. as a Bangla language program. seeing the two mouthorgan legends together was an overwhelming experience and i regretted a lot that why i missed to see the interview. this upload of interview bring back those moments alive again.
Many thanks for this rare upload which every mouthorgan lovers should watch.

I pay my respect to all mouthorgan lovers again..
