Radio 3

Lancome serves up shark's fin, tea and celebrity gossip with friends in high places

'High tea' takes on a new level of meaning when the venue is one of Ritz-Carlton's premium suites on the 117th floor.

Surprised by Yuen Long's radio silence

Hugh Terry offered some suggestions that he felt could improve RTHK and Radio 3 (Sunday Morning Post, November 17).

I have just moved to Yuen Long, and to my surprise, have found that I cannot get any English-speaking stations on AM or FM radio.

It appears that this location is too far from the transmitter.

24 Nov 2002 - 12:00am

I'm sorry, I'll say that again

You always learn something from RTHK's morning news show, and Friday was no exception.

RTHK tunes in at library

RTHK is holding a public forum at the Central Library in Causeway Bay tonight from 6.30pm to 8.30pm to gauge public opinion on the quality of its Radio 3 English-language service.

1 Aug 2002 - 12:00am

Programme ceased to maintain relevance

I refer to the request by George Adams for RTHK to bring back Open Line (South China Morning Post, July 3), a programme that aired on Radio 3 until the late 1990s.

10 Jul 2002 - 12:00am

Excellent response from listeners

In response to recent public interest in the changes to Radio 3, I would like to share with your readers some views and information.

14 Jun 2002 - 12:00am

Public warnings on different wavelength

On Monday there was a government announcement on RTHK warning decorators to be mindful of safety and to be careful with dangerous products such as paint thinners. This announcement seems a little needless on an English-language radio station.

6 Jun 2002 - 12:00am

Challenges awaiting RTHK's new broom

The news that RTHK Radio 3 is to lose its present head is interesting ('Head of Radio 3 quits after contract rejection,' South China Morning Post, May 22).

The public must speculate on the reasons for the move. As usual, our Government surrenders behind a veil of secrecy and will not explain events.

28 May 2002 - 12:00am

Enjoyable and exciting experience

The report headlined 'Head of Radio 3 quits after contract rejection' (South China Morning Post, May 22) requires clarification.

My departure from RTHK has nothing to do with reduction of fringe benefits, nor has it anything to do with changes in the weekend music programme schedule.

25 May 2002 - 12:00am

Station will lose some listeners

I refer to the reply by the head of Radio 3, Martin Clarke, ('Choice tracks', South China Morning Post, March 26) to Maggie Stevens ('Still popular', Post, March 21) regarding the cancellation of the show Today's Country.

Radio bureaucrats need reality check

The letter by head of Radio 3 Martin Clarke, ('Choice tracks', South China Morning Post, March 25) only adds fuel to the fire burning around the remnants of RTHK's Radio 3.

He wrote that an FM frequency has been added 'to enhance our territory-wide frequency of 567AM'.

1 Apr 2002 - 12:00am

Choice tracks

I agree with your correspondent Maggie Stevens ('Still popular', South China Morning Post, March 21) about the quality of the music on the soundtrack of Oh Brother Where Art Thou?.

25 Mar 2002 - 12:00am

Recognising game's popularity

Referring to soccer fan Wong Pui-ming's letter (South China Morning Post, December 5), I am aware of the popularity of international soccer in Hong Kong.

For this reason Radio 3 carried Five Live commentary of key World Cup matches and is investigating the possibility of relaying live coverage of the run-up to the end of the English Premier League season.

10 Dec 1998 - 12:00am

Giants of the airwaves

It is a commonly known and accepted truth that great voices make for great radio, and RTHK's Radio 3 is a splendid example of that phenomenon.

Ralph Pixton's eternally calm and cool responses to some of the most aggravatingly selfish and petty complaints imaginable, that are aired on Open Line, is a joy to behold and a credit to his professionalism.

29 Oct 1996 - 12:00am

Politics fine replacement for Pixton

SATURDAY morning listeners to Radio 3 who, from time immemorial, have come to treasure the bedside manner of veteran broadcaster Ralph Pixton, were miffed when they first learned of a change in the programme format.
