Growing up, I missed the chance to listen to Patrick Teoh on-air because Johor people who are Chinese mostly watch Singaporean TV and listen to Singaporean radio. I don’t remember how I got to know about Patrick but I did, and as fate would have it, we became friends.
For a while now, I really wish I did listen to him because I heard so many stories of how funny and witty he was on the radio, told by friends, mutual friends, acquaintances and such. Classic Patrick Teoh, you know. Well I don’t! Grrr…. It sounds like the kind of programme that I would have very much enjoyed — 10% music, 90% talk, 100% entertainment.
Thanks to Caroline Oh’s BFM ‘In Converation’ interview with Patrick, I was able to get a glimpse of what it was – friggin’ awesome! I was smiling and chuckling to myself at a lot of parts, e.g. when Patrick talked about appreciation for opera:
“I wouldn’t know the difference between an aria and a sup kambing.”
Okay my point is that if you can only listen to one podcast this weekend, let this one be it!
