I Heart MIX FM But ...

One of the perks (they are few, by the way) of my workplace is that as I work on my computer terminal, I get to listen to music while I work. Gotta have my earphones hooked on, of course, but yeah, I get to listen to music while I'm on the computer. So anyways, after listening to my iTunes for too long (that's *ahem* almost 16GB worth of songs in my PC *ahem*), I got tired of it, and started listening to the wee portable radio I have.

So anyways, these days I've been listening to a lot of MIX FM. I especially enjoy the breakfast show with Ika, Serena C and Pietro. Man, they're a crazy lot. It's really funny to hear the two girls ganging up on the poor fella, who, by the way, always get bullied into doing crazy stuff with the rest of the male DJs just because the *ahem* LADIES keep winning Who Wears The Pants :p If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then go listen to Mix FM! (I'm not paid to write this, by the way, which you'll know why soon).

Okay, MIX FM, guys, I love your station, especially the Mix Breakfast shows with the three hilarious jokers, but I'm afraid I have a bone to pick with you.

First of all, I don't understand the need to have Phua Chu Kang in your shows. He may be funny on the actual sitcom, but far from it on the air. He speaks too fast, and his jokes are lame. Somehow I think adding PCK kinda insults the intelligence of the listeners. The Manglish/Singlish thing? Really overrated, guys. I always switch to another station when he gets on air. I don't know about you, but it irritates me in the morning.

Oh, and MIX FM Make The First Move? I've been listening to the shows for a week now, and I don't know, it just somehow seems WRONG to be making the first move for someone who wants to date or make a date with someone else when the whole NATION's listening to y'all. Getting to know someone, dating someone is a personal thing. I've heard a couple of callers who requested Ika, Serena C and Pietro to help them get the girls, but when they answered the phone, and found out what was going on, they were pissed off. I remembered a couple of lines.

"This is a personal affair between X and I" (said very coldly)

(girl to the caller) "YOU ACTUALLY GAVE MY NUMBER TO THE STATION???"

Unless you know the girl's a good sport, really, I think MIX FM is mucking things up even more than actually helping.

Anyways, that's that. Just a little rant for the weekend. I'll still continue to listen to the Breakfast Show, that's for sure. I mean, the three fellas are pretty much the only DJs worth listening to anyway ;)

My favourite will be Hitz.fm and I love their Gotcha! prank calls very much and their songs are really up-to-date as well.

Next up will be Fly FM but after reading this post, Mix FM might now be in my list... :lol:

Hello

Thanks for the nice words and the constructive comments. Its all taken very well not to worry.

Well to answer some of your posts, the make your first move, before we start we will discuss with both parties about putting it on air before we record and we get their full consent.

About PCK, well we got tonnes of request for him to be on air. So we do what listeners want.
