Hong Kong radio stations

Thanks to technology, cheeky is able to listen to his dose of Cantopop on the internet. Cheeky must say that the DJs from the radio stations in Hong Kong are a breath of fresh air compared to our local DJs who’s trying too hard be media friendly and politically correct to the masses. For a start, they pull no punches and say what’s on their mind even if they risk offending someone. To state an example, last night a lady called in to lament about her daughter’s grade, which wasn’t quite bad to begin with. Instead of taking a stand on her side, the DJ lashed out at her, criticising her of imposing ridiculous expectations and pressure on her daughter. Wah kau, cheeky was surprised and hugely entertained by the DJ. Cheeky can’t see our DJs resorting to such antic since they barely have any balls to spare, no thanks to our highly sensitive society where complaining is a national past time. Anyway, most of the Hong Kong DJs are full of delightful sarcasm and wits and it helps that cantonese is a pretty crude language. The whole setup becomes like a coffeeshop conversation where anything goes and everyone and everything is a potential topic for discussion. The icing’s when you have celebrities like Sandra Ng and Eric Tseng as host on the airwave who’ll spare no efforts to take a dig at their celebrity friends. Alas, most of our local celebrities (as well as DJs) are pretty much 2 dimensional in characters so cheeky don’t see much assets in them being guest DJ, cheeky would rather hear the daily prayer broadcasted on RTM1.
