Star RFM 988 releases a new radio drama Rainbow, in conjunction with this Friday’s Valentine’s Day-cum-Chap Goh Meh.

WITH Valentine’s Day and Chap Goh Meh (the Chinese version of V-Day) falling on the same day this Friday, Star RFM 988 is going all out to ensure that your week will be full of romance and love with a brand new Valentine’s Day radio drama entitled Rainbow, which debuts today at noon.

The show is a milestone as it gathers talent who is not from the industry in a radio drama for the first time, with local celebrities Steve Yap, Jane Ng and Wincci Soo lending their voices to the characters, together with Star RFM 988 deejays Cheryl Lee and Chan Fong.

There will be a total of eight stories with 16 episodes in this Chinese drama, each revolving around interpersonal relationships that are both deeply relevant and relatable.

“I am excited and nervous at the same time, as this is my very first project for 2014,” says Lee. “Although I have done radio drama before, this is the first time I am working with talent like Steve Yap, Soo Wincci and Jane Ng on one.”

988 Morning Up announcer Chan Fong, who is thrilled to be part of this project, says: “I get to work with people I have known for years, and also people who are making their first appearances on radio drama. It is new and fresh for our listeners, especially those who are looking forward to celebrating Chap Goh Meh and Valentine’s Day.”

> Rainbow will premiere on 988 at noon today. It airs Monday to Friday. For more info, visit www.988.com.my.
