LIVERPOOL is home to the first and only Hindi free-to-air digital radio station in Australia.
Radio APNA Digital is located on Scott Street and operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
It appeals to Hindi-speaking people of all religions and caters to 17 nationalities.
The programs include news, sport, entertainment, international news and community notices.
Audiences can tune in on digital radios and mobile digital devices, via the internet on websites and social media sites including Facebook.
Program director and announcer Shaheen Shameem said the station had a good response from the Hindi community.
"We have listeners from all over the world," she said.
"They can stream live on the internet. There's a lot of people who listen online in Fiji, Canada, Nepal and more.
"We even get people calling in."
She said the station was working on catering to audiences of all ages.
"On Saturdays, I play a mixture of Hindi, Fijian, village folk music and a few English songs," she said.
"We will be introducing English songs for the teenage listenership.
"We're hoping to get teenagers together, to create an interest for the youth. That is the plan for the future."
She said Liverpool was an ideal location to set up the station.
"There's a lot of people of Hindi-speaking background in Sydney, but I think Liverpool is the heart of the community," she said.
"People of Indian background are our largest audience and there's a lot who live in Liverpool."
The 2006 census listed Hindi as the 10th most common language spoken at home, with 70,000 speakers.
