Tune in to the new season of shows on City Radio, City Harvest Church’s online radio station.
Contributed By Dwayne Lum
Launched on April 22 this year, helmed by program producer Bernard Loh (below), City Radio aims to provide listeners with a buffet of multi-lingual programs ranging from weekly devotionals to lifestyle shows.
City Radio launched its new season on August 13, with brand new programs hosted by exciting deejays. One highlight this September is a show hosted by the co-founders of CHC, Kong Hee and Sun Ho. Listeners can also look forward to more popular Christian hits from the likes of Chris Tomlin, Hillsongs and the Planetshakers. What’s more, giveaways, contests and roadshows await listeners.
The capsule-sized shows are available via the free iTunes app CHC Mobile, the official CHC iPhone/iPod Touch app, and on your computer at www.cityradio.sg.
City News gets the hosts of each program to explain what their show is about:
STRUMS, hosted by Bernard Loh
“STRUMS is an unplugged acoustic session. We bring guests into the show and get them to showcase their skills, share their story and inspire others to pursue their dreams. During the first show, Annabel Soh, one of CHC’s worship leaders, sang a song with so much heart, it touched me deeply and I actually teared.”
Weekly Online Refreshing Devotional (W.O.R.D.), hosted by Derek Dunn
“W.O.R.D. is all about providing encouragement and empowerment. As we go through our week, we all need that boost to keep us in faith and the principles from the Word of God to keep us on track.”
Beauty And The Beasts, hosted by Gary Sim, Dwayne Lum and Bernie Guan
“Beauty And The Beasts takes a delightful and irreverent poke at the absurdities that lurk beneath Singapore’s dehydrating seriousness. Are hot people smart as well? What’s the best way to tell someone that they have bad breath? Should guys shave their armpit hair? In other words, the stuff that really matters in life.”
Da Cheng Xiao Shi (Stories From A Big City), hosted by Danielle Ho and Koh Yong Hui (Mandarin)
“The lyrics of the song “Xiao Ren Wu De Xin Sheng” (“Voices Of Ordinary People”) speak of how ordinary people like you and I can have a profound impact on others too. As we began recording our programs, we found ourselves relating to our guests’ stories and experiences, sometimes even to the point of tears.”
Xin Fu De Jie Zou (The Rhythm of Joy), hosted by Chen Ying Jie (Mandarin)
“Every episode, a celebrity or famous personality will be invited to share their life testimony on our show. For our first and second episodes, Rosita Chu, a famous radio deejay and writer in Hong Kong and Taiwan, will be sharing her life story with our listeners.”
Kopi Tia (Coffee and Listen), hosted by Asher Lum and Maria Tok (Hokkien)
“Kopi Tia lets listeners reminisce about the past and ponder upon the issues of life. We want to recreate the heartland spirit of Singaporeans, particularly those who love to sit together with friends in a coffee shop to chat about the past as well as current happenings.”
Tebar Pesona, hosted by Putri (Bahasa Indonesia)
“Tebar Pesona teaches our listeners to live life with style. Almost every episode will deal with useful and practical tips and secrets to flawless styles and fashion. I would like to showcase that people can be holy while being sharply and attractively dressed, living the Cultural Mandate in our everyday lives through good personal grooming.”
