I remember when MIX FM was launched, I was still in college (yes, I’m not exactly a young boy), and immediately it became one of my favorite stations until now. The music is just perfect for generation-x listeners, with a good mixture of latest hits and those tunes we’re familiar with while growing up.
Best of both worlds, keeping in touch with our roots and at the same time, ensuring we don’t get caught off guard while trying to blend into the younger crowds. hehe
MIX FM also makes a good companion during the morning rush hour whenever I drive to work. Poor JD & Dilly of MIX’s Breakfast Show are probably the only two person I know who had to start work at 6am. I thought waking up before 6:30 am is already such a drag, poor guys.
Despite starting off so early in the morning, these guys do bring a dose of energy to the radio, and usually manage to come up with something funny to kill of the Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday/Friday blues.
One of my favorite segment’s gotta be “Battle of the Sexes”, male vs female, JD vs Dilly, on equal ground. Exciting stuff 😀
And if you’re a music buff (or a lucky bugger), from now till 1st of April the Breakfast Show will shell out RM 1000 if you are able to identify all 4 songs played in a snippet with title and artist.
If you don’t get them all correct, it is RM 100 per correct title. The total pay out is RM 50,000, so are you gonna be able to take 1K out of it?
Tune to MIX weekdays from 6am to 10am then, good luck!
Little known fact about me – I went through 12 years of Chinese education in a SRJK(C) and SMJK(C) education, which basically means that I am actually able to converse and read/write in Mandarin pretty well. 我不是香蕉人。
I actually read through the whole 金庸武侠小说 (kung fu novel series), watch Hochiak, and listen to MY FM in addition to all the other “English language centric” activities I engage in. 真的是人不可貌像，对不对？呵呵。
I was at MY FM 10th Anniversary party at Genting in 2008!
