MUMBAI: Southern music channel Southern Spice Music (SS Music), which has its 4th anniversary bash due in April 2005, is now dressing itself up for the big occasion. The channel has lined up cultural shows and ground events for the coming months.

The career show Career File, which will be a fortnightly show with 3 repeatsis, is made to showcase various industries to the students to make their choices easier for further studies. The show is made up of two segments - the first, in which college and universities are profiled and the second is more of an interaction with a professional from the industry to understand the dynamics of the job, informs the channel.

The maiden music video from the winners of the channel's talent hunt, The SS Music Voice Hunt, will release on 14 February. The Tamil album, composed in association with Tamil music director Pravin Mani, will also have a Hindi version. SS Music is releasing the album in association with Sony Music. The channel has already launched a "Name your Band" contest in association with Music World outlets across South India.

"We want the involvement of the audience. We want to know what they would name the band", says Babu.

Quoting TAM ratings the music channel lays claims to the market leader's position in the South. According to the channel, is holds a market share of over 50 per cent in the TG of 15-34 years during prime time.

"Overall we have some exciting plans for the New Year. Watch out for some surprises and some good content on SS Music," Babu sums up.
