Until recent times, Onam songs used to declare the approaching festival season with cassette companies competing with each other to release new songs ahead of Onam. Those days, young men from villages used to go to the nearby towns and queue up in front of cassette shops to buy the latest Onam songs. At a time when television sets were not common and smartphones were yet to arrive, people used to find entertainment in Onam songs. A lot of comedy cassettes were also released during Onam.
