This coming Saturday afternoon at 12.05, join us for some Good Ol' Country. For the first time in nearly 20 years Radio 3 brings you the best in real-deal American country music. We’re very excited to welcome its host too, who apart from being one quarter of the amazing Metro Vocal Group, has lived and breathed country music since he was small. Michael Lance was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, and raised on beef, corn, and potatoes. At a young age, he travelled North America in his family’s Country and Western band, and developed a love for those great story driven songs sung by some of the greatest story tellers of all time. Music has always been in his blood, literally, and he hopes his selection will make you stand up, find a partner, and dance the two-step to some....Good Ol' Country.

Peter Lewis will be on Radio 3 on Good Friday and Easter Monday morning from 6 to 10, with a holiday special of music, chat and guests. On Friday he has some Easter fun facts, an “Alternative Money Talk” with some of the more quirky business stories of the week, and an update on some of the events going on around Hong Kong over the Easter weekend.
On Monday, Peter discusses digital art with Philip Penaloza, managing director of Niio, an Israel-based company which is responsible for some of the fabulous digital art displays seen on the sides of Hong Kong skyscrapers recently.
Radio 3 brings you a brand new Saturday evening musical flavour for the start of Spring. After the news at 6, meet Mengzy. She’s a musician, a club DJ, and is currently studying for a PhD in electronic music. Through interviews with renowned producers and performers, interspersed with some great mixing, she wants to invite you to join her on a wonderful musical journey in The Breakdown. Stay with us after 7 as Simon Willson takes you back ... way back, with two hours of the greats in Soul Sensations. And, after 9 Todd Harding will still be rocking, but this time right into to the “Me” Decade, in Strictly Seventies.
On Tuesday's Backchat, we will talk about the film industry. Beijing has recently relaxed various rules for local films to enter the Mainland market, including HK film practitioners being eligible for Mainland awards, and removing restrictions on the number of Hong Kong people participating in the production of Mainland films. Are these rules attractive for the Hong Kong film industry, and will they make it grow - or die? Will Hong Kong audiences get more and better films? Or will they all become Mainland style productions, with little local impact? Why are Hollywood movies favoured over Mainland movies in Hong Kong? After 9.;20, Taiwan politics as its richest man announces he intends to stand for President.
