During the 90 years of broadcasting in Hong Kong, many classic radio programmes have been produced, and many successful disc jockeys (DJs) have also been nurtured. With their god gifted beautiful voices, unique musical tastes and personalities, or power to manipulate music, bold and innovative spirits, they win public praise.

Sandy LAMB, who had worked as a DJ for two radio stations, is definitely one of the best.

To commemorate the 90 Years of Broadcasting in Hong Kong, Sandy returns to Broadcast Drive to host this radio programme, and reunites with a number of famous DJ guests (including Lawrence CHENG, Candy CHEA, Eric NG, Ruth CHEN, Albert AU, Christopher WONG, Michael LEUNG, Sara LEE, Ocean CHAN, Francis MAK, Eric KOT, Simon NGAI and Timothy CHENG). From entering the industry, learning, striving, creating programmes, establishing own style, amusing work anecdote, to DJ culture and vision for the broadcast industry, they will tell their own DJ stories in a happy atmosphere.

It is no secret that Christopher (Chris) WONG is a DJ singer who sings well and turns to composing. In fact, however, he worked his summer job at the classical music channel when he first joined Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK). Chris recommended himself to Raymond NG, the then Head of RTHK Radio 2, by presenting NG an audio programme tape he recorded at leisure. Since then, Chris had become a member of that channel. He received formal training by his respected teacher Blanche TANG together with other budding DJs, including Vivian CHOW and Jennifer CHAN. Chris also broadcast songs recorded by himself in radio programmes and got recommended by Raymond NG, who appreciated talents, to record companies. Chris had thus debuted officially as a singer.

Programmes such as “Wandering Love”, “World for Two” and “Fall in Love at Night” were all well-received by the audience. Chris had therefore risen to be a sought-after DJ, yet he could not always get everything he wanted. He could not help giving up his career as a DJ which was at its prime, but to say goodbye to his good partners like YU Kim-ming, Vivian CHOW and Ocean CHAN, and became a full-time singer-songwriter.

After leaving the Hong Kong music industry for years, Chris has found another way out in a foreign country and got to know himself again. He met musicians with different backgrounds overseas while he did not blindly follow the trend. So he could have even more room for his development and could be even more faithful in his own belief in music.

    Episode 7 - Eric Kot

    Eric KOT has long been publicly recognised as a genius of the broadcasting industry. His one-of-a-kind, cartoon character-like voice has almost redefined the long-established standard of DJ’s “beautiful voice” imposed by the industry.

    Eric KOT started his performance career at Hong Kong Commercial Radio and formed a duo “Softhard” with Jan LAMB. Since Eric KOT had a rather soft personality, he was called “MC Soft”. Back in those days, “Softhard” produced all kinds of programmes with its unique creativity and unconventional mindset. Its bantering, ridiculous style had made the audiences burst into laughters. Moreover, Eric KOT had turned into “Kot (God) of the road” to report traffic news in an innovative way, which was a great hit at that time.

    In this episode, we will reminisce Eric KOT’s old days at Broadcast Drive and see how “Softhard” remains iconic in the hearts of a generation of people.

    Episode 6 - Albert Au & Ruth Chen

    In the 1980s, there was the rise of the “DJ singer” trend. Countless DJs joined the music industry. Without doubt, Sandy LAMB is the most prominent one among them. Apart from Sandy, those who were once a DJ singer include: the “Prince of Folk Songs” Albert AU and the “Sound of Commercial Radio” Ruth CHEN.

    Albert and Ruth worked for Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) and Commercial Radio Hong Kong (CRHK) respectively when they were DJs. They had both witnessed the history of rivalries and struggles at Broadcast Drive, which had resulted in the sufferings of the DJ singers of the two radio stations. Neither could the songs of these singers be promoted in the opposing station’s programmes, nor could they seize a place on the music charts, not to mention getting any prize at the award ceremonies. Back then, “Six Pair Half”, a CD album released by CRHK, was sold like hot cakes. A song in the album called “Far Apart” by Ruth and Winnie YU had been all the rage, yet it could not make RTHK’s “Top Ten Chinese Gold Songs Awards”.

    Having been striving in the broadcasting and music industries for years, Albert and Ruth are still not going to put an end to their endeavour yet. The former has been making efforts for the conservation of old songs, while the latter has been enjoying teaching students. The two will continue to make contributions in their own positions.

    Episode 5 - Simon Ngai & Timothy Cheng

    Radio hosts often touches their audiences’ hearts with their expressive voices, triggering imagination that knows no bounds. Veteran radio broadcasters Simon NGAI and Timothy CHENG are both widely regarded as having “the golden voice”, despite being active in different times.

    In this episode, Simon and Timothy will share with us the little-known stories of how they joined the broadcasting industry. Simon first learnt about the skills of audio broadcasting in the dubbing section of an artist training course at Rediffusion Television, while Timothy, nicknamed “Music Lover” these days, used to work in a radio station in Canada. After returning to Hong Kong, it was an administrative assistant, rather than a programme host, that Timothy first worked as in Radio Television Hong Kong.

    Moreover, they will also reminisce about the fun of being voice actors in radio dramas back then.

    Episode 4 - Francis Mak & Ocean Chan

    As night-time radio programmes compete head-to-head with television programmes, night-time has never been the prime time for radio. People generally do not expect much of the audience ratings of these programmes. Despite adverse circumstances, radio hosts Francis MAK and Ocean CHAN managed to produce widely popular night-time radio programmes, thanks to their never-give-up spirit and unique perspectives.

    The rebellious Ocean CHAN has longed for working as a DJ since childhood. Equipped with rich musical knowledge, she hosts the programme “Sky of Ocean”. In the phone-in session of the programme, she often remains insistent on her opinion and argues with the audience, and even hangs up on them. These unexpected moves have gradually shaped her as a well-loved “DJ with her own character”.

    After the financial crisis, Francis MAK felt that the community was fraught with negativity. Therefore, he produced the programme “Meeting Titanic on a Starry Night”, hoping to give the audience a positivity boost and encourage them to never give up, which made him their soul counsellor. He even established the “Never Give Up Association” and dedicated himself to youth counselling. His exemplary contribution earned him the Medal of Honour in 2005.

    In this episode, Ocean CHAN and Francis MAK will take a retrospective look at the days they worked on Broadcast Drive, and inspire the new generation of hosts to make their dreams come true.

    Episode 3 - Michael Leung & Sara Lee

    In terms of experience, Michael LEUNG is senior to Sara LEE. Yet, between this quarrelsome pair of buddies, there is no such thing as superiority of one over the other. At first, Michael invited Sara to tell ghost stories with him in a late-night show, which boosted their popularity immensely. The duo later collaborated in hosting early-morning programmes under the theme of “happiness”. Sara’s unpredictability worked well with Michael, who was both a mentor and a friend to her. Together they created numerous interesting, light-hearted programme series.

    Take a retrospective look at their journeys on Broadcast Drive, and you will find that their careers have not been without obstacles. For Michael, having left and returned to radio programme hosting several times, he had to start with junior positions every time in order to familiarise himself with the approach and feelings of being a radio host. As for Sara, at early stage of her singer career she was not that well-known by the audience and received no applause from them at the time she stepped on the performance stage. These unforgettable experiences have been driving them to cherish every single opportunity even more.

    Episode 2 - Eric Ng & Candy Chea

    They are called the best partner on Broadcast Drive. Once you hear their voices on the radio, you know which channel you are listening to. Eric and Candy can be called the icon of RTHK radio. From the early morning radio programmes to the live TV broadcast of the Top Ten Chinese Gold Songs Awards, they have accompanied many Hong Kong people to grow up. They have great chemistry after working together for so many years. As they often appeared together on radio and public places, people and even practitioners in the broadcasting industry thought that they were lovers, leading to many amusing moments.

    Disc jockeys (DJs) need not only work in on-air studios. During the golden era of their programmes, Eric and Candy gave an outdoor live broadcast of “Youth Symphony Night” in which Taiwanese singer Jean SHEN was invited to come to perform in Hong Kong, thereby jamming up the Kowloon Park. They have also organised a number of events to spice up the entertainment industry. Candy created “The Top Ten Most Popular People Award”, and the winning performing artistes were all superstars. As for Eric, “The 18 Districts Amateur Singing Contest” that he produced has also discovered a number of music icons such as Jacky CHEUNG.

    After working in the broadcasting industry for many years, Candy still has a strong passion for the work of DJs, and she always remind herself not to forget her feelings in the very beginning. Eric, on the other hand, has retreated behind the scenes to nurture a new generation of broadcasters at the university, hoping that they would inherit the respect for music.

    Episode 1 - Lawrence Cheng

    Cross-media creator Lawrence CHENG, or commonly known as “Ah Tan” has a diverse career path. He has worked for radio, television, film, stage, newspaper and periodical throughout his career. From on screen performance to working as senior executive, his career seems to be smooth-sailing. In fact, in the days when Lawrence first joined Radio Hong Kong as a DJ, he did face setbacks.

After some painstaking efforts, he rebounded by leading Sandy LAMB and Susanne HO to form the “Three Little Fairies”, and creating popular classics such as “No Comment” and “The Yuppie Fantasia”. As a result, Lawrence gradually became a media creator in the spotlight. In this programme, he will tell us the secret stories happened when he was frustrated by his work, and share with us his thoughts on how to overcome failure and acheive success.
