ENTERTAINMENT ACTIVITIES among the young appear to be on the turn. Long gone are the days when they got home at night and tuned into their favourite TV soap opera or music show. Now, they're switching on the radio - internet radio.

Kevin sinclair's hong kong

You are idly listening to the radio. Suddenly the music is interrupted by a statement of such nonsensical content, read in such ear-grating accents, that you are momentarily baffled.

What on earth was that all about? Chances are the 30-second message was both incomprehensible and irritating.

Jingles really getting on listener's nerves

For the last five years, Radio 4 has been punctuating its FM ('Fine Music') programmes with the same old lumps of what I would call 'rotten music'.

I refer to what are meant to be 'station idents' (that is, jingles which identify the station).

Great disappointment

I have been a faithful listener to 104 FM Select's morning radio programme, Jo-Goodmorning-Sun for many years and have continuously enjoyed the music and news provided by the very entertaining and amusing DJs Steve and Harry.

Now this show has been scrapped without a reason and replaced with some Cantonese talk show. What a great disappointment.

Still waiting for answer

On November 23 Jennifer Wong of KMB wrote to these columns, ostensibly in reference to my letter of November 3 complaining about the company's decision to relay Commercial Radio 2.

In her reply Ms Wong waxed lyrical about KMB's commitment to 'adding value across the spectrum of passenger experiences'.

Radio station short-sighted

I can only echo Karen L. Chastain's concern (South China Morning Post, June 11) regarding FM Select's decision to drop English news.

At a time when the international community deplores the lack of good English speakers here, this decision seems myopic. FM Select's contention that most of the listeners do not understand the language sounds defeatist.

Charge aims to make up shortfall

Our loyal Radio 4 listener, Lee Tin-yan (South China Morning Post, May 8) is unhappy with the decision to charge a modest handling and postage fee for Radio 4's monthly programme guide, FM.

FM is published on a self-financing basis by the Friends of Radio 4 Society, with administration and editorial support from Radio 4 producers.

Freedom of choice

REGARDING your article, 'Public-access TV rejected' (Sunday Morning Post, May 7), it is not just arts groups which will be missing out following the decision by the Executive Council. It affects the entire population of Hong Kong.

Millions turned on by more radio choice

POLITICAL turbulence and changing lifestyles have seen radio listenership increase by 20 per cent in the last year, according to a new survey.

The latest results of the second joint radio survey showed about four million, or 76 per cent of Hong Kong people, were listening to the radio.

Turning on to classic radio

RADIO 3's drive down the middle of the road has won it few plaudits in recent months. Younger listeners, specialist audiences and those with a taste for the more upmarket in voice and music broadcasting have not been catered for.

Metro's 'new magic' unlikely to lure advertising dollar

INDUSTRY observers are not convinced that Metro Broadcast's plan to merge its news channel, Metro News, with Metro News Plus is going to help it bring in the advertising dollar.
