How many of us actually listen to the radio station nowadays other than driving to work . With so many channels,i think we still miss Constance Haslam,Joey,Alan Zachariah,Rizal Abdullah, the late David(country music),etc....I think those "young-at-heart" forummers like oldies.A program in Traxx FM (90.30-klang Valley)plays the oldies every Sat and Sun from 6-9am.A USJ forummer will play all those oldies for you.He is actually a classmate of mine who also DJ a internet channel on Tues for Tourism M'sia.I bet you will enjoy those music.At present they is a competetion of who is your favorite singer,Elvis,Abba,Beegees,Cliff Richard.Come forummers play your part here!Cheers;-)

How come nobody miss Patrick Teoh? I still remember he once played "Mexican Girl" about 100 times consecutively

Anyway, its not about the Radio Station anymore. now, with the easy availability of internet music, people are more inclined to "tune-in" with their PCs while at work.

Unless you can bring back our "The Voice" so that people can sneak in [@#$%$#] over live Radio

For me and my wife, we now lock-in exclusively to BFM 89.9 - this is mainly a talk radio with some very good business interviews and they also touch on many topics in the day (but alas, I only get to hear it while driving). Patrick Teoh is on the early evening talk show maybe once a week.

TraxFM had lost their the pull ever since Yasmin left
LightFM had also lost me after awhile - their morning talk shows have lost it altogether and now cannot match what BFM has to offer

Jan, 6-9am on a weekend is no go for me as I catch up on my lost sleep altho I'd like to revivie the real oldies

Nowadays, the so-called oldies are music form the 80's which is still not old enough for me - they are mainly disco stuff
Real oldies are music from the 50's and 60's (ha, most of you aren't even born yet :D )

BFM (89.9) have their own website at bfm.my where they upload the shows. You can download missed shows as a podcast. I also exclusively tune in to 89.9 but only when driving (although you can listen 'live' on the web also on bfm.my). Patrick Teoh if i am not mistaken is on Thursdays evening.

Why English speaking local Radio Station only has Indian DJ. ? The heavy accent is just too much to bear .On one occasion ,one lady DJ even try to immitate a Cowboy Girl accent while about to play a Country & western song ...I almost puik !

Let's not get racial again. Anyway, most DJ's adopt Patrick Teoh's diction style to such an extent that we are unable to guess the ethic background of the DJ.

These fellas want to show that they had been overseas? I was studying in Canada before and till now never had a Canadian accent. Just to show off? Glad that most of our radio announcers spoke good clear English without the fake accent..like Faridah Marican..used to listen to her..clear diction. Caroline Oh of BFM 89.9 has good diction too. Enjoyed her talk show as I drive back every afternoon.

I NEVER switch on the radio channel when I drive in Malaysia

The road has been packed with enough idiots… don’t need another one uttering nonsense in my car..

I listen to symphony and classical music from CD....


ps. There is one thing I like Singapore. The Symphony 92.4 channel plays classical music 24/7 non-stop with no radio commercial. You can get the reception once you reach Kulai.

Get an android tablet - don't know if it is available for ipads. Download the TuneIn app - where you can listen to a great many radio stations from all over the world. Local stations as well. With wifi connection around the house or starbucks/McD/office etc you can listen to your hearts' content..!!! And I mean it..!!!

Just download the TuneIn app and evaluate for yourselves..

Enjoy!...Cheers!

IMHO, local radio is now RUBBISH! especially channels with national language medium especially by RTM. Those broadcasters. DJ's whoever, should and always practice the language at its highest degree and finest form. Instead they're often heard speaking with local village lingo. Its not likely you hear this kind practiced on BBC, English Language at its best form for all audience. Same standards should be practiced here, no if's no buts, no wonder our National Language is actually gone rotten and students risk failing or just scraping through language examination!
My 2 sen on this..

nonsense ..! Once I was in the West where I was in a Cinema (Cineplex)before lights off ,I heard a bunch of teen yapping away nosily behind me. I paid no attention until when the show was over .I was shock these loud talking fellows were chinese ! (later i found out they were XXXborn chinese..). I thought all the while they were ' sei kwei lo chai ' !!!

I guess you can and will speak the western language with their accurate accent if 'educated' correctely.

I used to listen to Rizal Abdullah - very assuring voice before midnite. The music and songs he plays for his listeners are just simply good. Always wonder if I wud hear him speak again..:) And of course, the story telling Alan Zach..:)

I could remember names like..the ladies Constance Haslam and Faridah Merican. Impeccable spoken English over the air.
I also remember the late Mr Vincent Fernandez, a popular teacher at St.John's Institution KL, who recently passed away. He was a sports pundit and occasional match commentator over the air too.
Those were the days. What do we have now?... rarely even close.

Patrick Teoh actually learn to speak English by watching the TV with subtitles though he was schooled in the missionary school. In fact, when he was a deejay in New Zealand, the locals there thought he was a kwai loh. ;)

Those were the days of Sunshine and everything nice with Kee Huat facts and fancies. And yes - lights listening momnets of Constance haslam and Faridah Merican. :)

There were two lady Deejays who paired very well with Patrick Teoh - Yasmin Yusoff and Angie Ng... dunno what happened to Angie after she did her deejay stints at Patrick's Radio City at 1Utama... but you can still hear yasmin in the shuttle train between KLIA main terminal and satellite terminal...
