Local Chinese-language radio station undergoes revamp

Local Chinese-language radio station 988’s latest revamp brings you Power Show, a brand-new weekday evening drive-time programme.

Power Show is hosted by three 988 deejays – Danny One, Cassey Soo, and Fish Poh.

In a recent interview at the 988 office, the trio spoke about the refreshing lifestyle theme for their rebranded drive-time show, which airs Mondays to Fridays from 4pm to 7.30pm.

The three deejays will each have their own respective thematic segments – Danny’s IT Brain, Cassey’s Beauty Gallery, and Ikan Canteen.

Danny’s IT Brain will be dealing with all things tech-related. “My segment will focus on IT, gadgets, technology, and what’s new on the tech radar these days. I’ll also talk about apps and software and programming, and whatever is going viral at the moment,” shared the IT-savvy deejay, who is also a popular singer-songwriter.

With Cassey’s Beauty Gallery, Soo gets to showcase her fashionista outlook by discussing the latest beauty trends.

“I’ll be sharing tips on fashion and beauty, and talk about my own experiences with skincare and makeup as I review products I’ve tested. We’ll be creating online content for our social media accounts. Our objective is to remind people that ‘if you never try, you’ll never know’,” said Soo.

Poh’s segment, titled Ikan Canteen, will revolve around foodie experiences, cooking ingredients, and everything about food and eating.

“I’m a newbie in the kitchen. So, we’ll be learning by experimenting with food, starting with the ingredients used for cooking. For instance, we’ll discuss the difference between cooking with local cucumber and Japanese cucumber. Or the difference between mozzarella and cheese slices.

“I’ll also be making videos, and bringing the food here for them (co-hosts) to eat. We’re here to encourage everyone to go out and have fun, new experiences,” urged Poh.

Power Show is part of a full-scale revamp for 988, which kicked off on Sep 18.

Prior to the revamp, the time slot was occupied by Let’s Play, which Danny One had been co-hosting with Cheryl Lee and Hao Min.

Lee is now co-hosting Morning Up (Monday-Friday, 6am-10am), 988’s weekday morning drive-time show, with Chan Fong and Jason Poon.988 logo
