Kak Teh Radio - Cuba, Try , Testing tengok...

This is just a trial...whether it works or not, I don’t know and I will need your help with this. I have always loved radio and I have tried reviving my interest in this. Sometime ago, along with other friends we started rantauan.tv and because it was just experimental and we didnt have any budget, it went to rest in that place in the seventh sky of cyberspace. But it was such fun doing it – we enlisted the help of members around the world – people we have never met – to bring online some tv programmes. I even had our Prime Minister, Pak Lah to say a few words.

It was hard work, but it was fun. It was time consuming, but it was well worth it. I learnt a lot. How times have changed – the method of putting together a piece for radio has changed so much since the first day I started doing radio, taking reports for the weather forecast.

I have put this interview online before. It was done with an old, precious friend of mine, Zainol whose love for the Malay asli song took him back to Malaysia after 25 years away. From that radio icon on the side bar - you can hear the interview.

I am putting this online again, as I am exploring ways to have my own radio online. I have many interviews, many short features – one of which is the interview with Malay sailors. I put this together and was aired by the BBC so many years ago. There are many others.

It’ll be wonderful to be able to, once in a while listen to something. What do you think?

How can I host this kind of programme on a blog?To those of you are IT literate and know more about this than I do, please help.

Thank you.

PS - I've been told by some friends that they can't hear a thing- hmmm when I use Internet Explorer, I have the same problems. But using Mozilla Firefox - it seems okay. Thanks for the feedback. But I need more suggestions, please.

kak teh, a radio on the blog would be wonderful.. I hope you can pull it off..I think i have problem with the sound in my pc..i cannot play anything at the moment. Good luck!!

Kak Teh said...

Try podcasting. Could save much of the bandwidth from current real-time streaming. Podcasting example: Diggnation. Or, try using YouTube platform to decentralize the bandwidth. Submit the audio, with a static image to YouTube. Stream through RSS Feed on the sidebar or minimize YouTube frame. Just my 2 cent, tak sampai 30 sen pon.

Best sambil baca blog didendang oleh lagu asli...

LifeBloom said...

KT - this is embarassing but where do I click on your blog to listen to the radio??? Tak sabar nak dengar!

BTW - what a wonderful effort. Hope you will succeed with podcast.

Kak Teh said...

life bloom - there's a radio graphic or picture on the left column - it will atomatically play - but i suposed u have to leave it to buffer . i think u can click on play as well.

LifeBloom said...

KT - still cannot - mcm tak respond jer the PLAY button. Not to worry - will get to the bottom of this.

Count Byron said...

Sailors? in Liverpool? I'd love to hear what their daughters have to say.

Mama Irma said...

I have no problem listening to the radio, kak teh!! The song is so melancholic and the interviewer's voice is very sweet indeed....

simah said...

Restless said...

Very much like a professionally-done, choreographed radio broadcasting work. In fact, I thought I heard Nurfarahin Jamsari doing the introductory line at first. Heh! Your voice has talent la, Kak Teh.

Kak Teh said...

lifebloom, tak pa , tak pa.but what happened to yr blog? three of the same entry?
count, insyaallah will work on the sailor story - will have to cut it down to muatkan di sini...hehe,
mama irma, its funny - the longer you stay away, the further into yr roots you go. I never liked these asli songs when i was back home..now I crave for them.
simah oiiiiiiii, kak teh nyanyi di blog ni nanti habih orang lari laaaa!

Kak Teh said...

mak andeh, ada lah pomen sana sini dengan pertolongan ijunnnn maka berjayalah. ada lah satu kod yang terturun ke bawah and that messed things up.
swan, thanks for the compliment - this is indeed a new media we can all explore - and its exciting.
kak lady, hehehe mak dara comes to mind!
auntie yan - memang semua lagu asli tu yang klasik and tak jemu dengar.
anim, anim, anim...thanks. well, i was/is still in broadcasting - the new thing abt this is just online editing. MMmm, Nur farahin? :)

petalingstreet said...

Jane Sunshine said...

WOW! I can hear it loud and clear now. Your voice very the sexy.

LifeBloom said...
