Interview in this week’s 東周刊 East Weekly (20080422)

Filed in Entertainment Ind., PressTags: ,

Just over a week ago, Ken Leung, an editor from Eastweek 東周刊, along with three other associates, came to my home and interviewed me for the magazine. That interview was published today in this week's issue. Unfortunately, Eastweek is not available online so you'll only be able to see the interview if you can buy the magazine.

娛樂直播 Interview now online!

I'm back ;-)

I apologise for being away so long. A lot has happened in the last two months (not London though; more on that later) and it can take me a while to 'recover' after a period of serious mind work (such as writing the new Blog Comment code).

My gift to you today is the 娛樂直播 interview that TVB graciously gave me on 19 March 2007. I hope you like the interview as much as I do. For one short time, I truly felt like a star. Thank you TVB.

903 radio interview tonight

Filed in Events, Press, They’re Playing Our Song (2007), Work

To help get the word out about our play, our marketing person arranged for me to have an interview with the 叱咤 903 radio station, but the interview is part of a program called 「有耳喱民」 in which they talk about weird behaviour and ghost stories. I was a little hesitant about it but the producers and hosts (亞喱, 詹志民 and 有耳非文) made me feel at home as soon as I arrived. Knowing 有耳非文 from way back in 1997 when we performed 「上海之夜」 together helped a lot too because I suddenly had a 'friend' with me, and so the interview turned out to be a very fun one.

The interview will be broadcast tonight at 12 midnight. If you don't have Hong Kong radio access, you can listen to it via their web link. I think you'll enjoy it ;-)

Article in 蘋果日報 Apple Daily (20061120)

Filed in Entertainment Ind., Press

I received a call today from a reporter at Hong Kong's 蘋果日報 Apple Daily newspaper. She had heard my songs and read about my broken toe.

She then told me that there will be article about these various things in tomorrow's the Nov 20 (Monday) edition of the newspaper. So if you are able to buy the newspaper, take a look, or you can check it out online at 蘋果日報 Apple Daily's web site.

Update

The article is not there yet. I've asked the reporter and she told me that it will be published some time this week. I'll let you know once it appears, or perhaps you'll let me know ;-)

Update (24 Nov 2006)

The article has been published. You can find it here.

Interview on 萬王之王, RTHK Radio 2 (20061116)

Filed in Entertainment Ind., Music, Music: My Songs, Press

Last week was busy; well not quite, but still interesting anyway. In addition to the interview with Alyson at RTHK Radio 3, I also talked with Shirley 曾淑儀 and Lu from the 「萬王之王」 King of Kings show on RTHK Radio 2.

When Shirley heard about my singing studies in L.A., she liked the idea of interviewing me but wanted to make it special. What she came up with was really fun. 「洋人中文歌」 is a three-part series; approximately fifteen minutes per part; with yours truly teaching (we're truly stretching the meaning of this word) listeners to sing ;-)  Shirley and Lu were wonderful and lots of fun. I think you'll enjoy the series.

The series will begin tomorrow; Thursday, November 16, 2006. I'm not sure of the exact time of my interview but the King of Kings show runs from 5pm to 7pm (i.e., UTC 9.00am), Monday to Friday. The second and third parts will be broadcast next Thursday (November 23) and the Thursday after that (November 30) respectively.

If you miss the show, the archives will be available from the King of Kings archive pages: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.

Interesting and perhaps confusing; I don't really sing very much Chinese during the interviews, but we explain that later on in the series. And for all of you who care, I promise to sing more Cantonese in the future.

I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed recording it with Shirley and Lu.

Interview on Teen Time, RTHK Radio 3 (20061114)

Filed in Entertainment Ind., Press

A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from one of my blog's readers by the name of Lenny Wu. He wrote:

I'm just wondering, can you contact this friend? She's a radio DJ for RTHK Radio 3. Her name is Alyson Hau. Here's her website. I dunno if you got anything to say for Teen Time. :) Teen Time is from 9-10pm. It would be nice to hear you speak English. :D

Well, I wrote to Alyson and she liked the idea, so we recorded the interview last week. It's in English so you can all hear my Aussie accent ;-) The interview is light but also serious near the end because I explain an idea of mine that might help many of the struggling actors and production people in the entertainment industry.

Alyson is amazing. She's young, talented, smart, beautiful, and she's fluent in English, Cantonese and Mandarin. Nothing's going to stop her getting where she wants to go.

Teen Time runs weekdays from 9 to 10pm Hong Kong time, i.e., 1pm UTC time. My interview will be in tonight's show, November 14. Mark your calendars.

If you miss the show tonight, you can listen to the archive which will be available after the broadcast.
