September 7th, 2007: Mr. Lam Chun See from Good Morning Yesterday writes about the black and white programmes on Radio Television Singapore (RTS) in the early 60s. In reply, Peter remembers, The Rado Show with Tan Tock Peng and The Citizen Watch Show in 1972 with Larry Lai.
He continues, "The Talentime finals was beamed 'live' from the National Theatre. I remember one contestant who could make music from bending his carpenter's saw, The Bambinos and velvety-voice, Sugiman Jahuri who sang, Woman, Woman."
By coincidence another kind and close friend gave me his small collection of about 25 EPs of local singers and two of them were recorded on EMI by *Sugiman Jahuri (image).
The first one has, Woman Woman, Everytime I Fall In Love, If You Change Your Mind and Give Her My Love, while the second album features: Look At You, It's Not For Me To Say, You Make My Life Worthwhile and Born Free.
*Sugiman is known as, 'The Man from Bukom', 2nd prize winner of the RTS Talentime 1968.
