When Music n Broadcast Professionals Meet

There was a party at the SRC before Christmas 2010, organised by my neighbour and friend Leo Fernandez. He is a saxaphonist and having been a former SBC (Singapore Broadcasting Corporation) musician he can easily command an army of professional melody makers to his gathering by just playing on his flute, like Browning's Pied Piper of Hamelin.

It was a celebrity crowd that came along to squeeze their horns, crack their guitars, tickle the ivories and smash the skins. Abel Gan, Sam Gan, Billy Martinez, Danny Koh (image 2 with Leo Fernandez), Horace Wee (image 3), Jerry Murad, Terry Mortimer, Thomas Paul, Michael Banger and Shankar Paul jammed to grace the occasion (image 1).

A host of veteran broadcasters were there to enjoy the party also. There was Joan Chee, Mildred Appadurai and Lucy Leong. So like fine wine and fizzy drinks, sweet music flowed and gushed throughout the occasion.

I must thank Juliana Lim for the connection because up till today I have yet to meet her and Leo. Soon hopefully?

'Oldies But Goodies Music'

If you are a fan of Oldies music especially the 60s, check out this site by Andy Young from Singapore.

One of the best music sites I have come across with loads of info, even about our local musicians.
