Peter Lewis will be on Radio 3 from 6 to 10 on Tuesday morning to celebrate the mid-autumn festival with plenty of guests and great music to keep you entertained. Recent data shows that young people in their 20’s are leaving Hong Kong in their droves in search of better lives. But they’re not going to the usual destinations such as the US or UK but to rather more exotic countries such as New Zealand and Iceland. Peter talks on the phone live from Reykjavik with one such Hong Konger, Gary Hung, who moved to Iceland a year ago to find out why and how he’s faring. We also talk about how to write a good CV and find out about some of the more hilarious things that have been written in them with Samantha Saw, Director of Successful Resumes, Hong Kong. Finally, Philip Howell-Williams, director of the Pink Season, tells us what we can expect over the next five weeks as Pink Season 2018 kicks off in Hong Kong on Friday.
Peter has some classic hits, rocking album tracks and forgotten gems from the past 6 decades plus the best in new music.
