I'm officially back with a vengeance!

To all the devoted English readers of this blog, you're in for a treat. Not only will I start writing my musical (and spiritual) rantings again (with the revival of Bill Heid's semi-masterpiece).

My brother Roger and I have recently recorded this 4-part series on RTHK Radio 3 entitled "Rock My Soul: From Spirituals to Rock N'Roll." It's a journey through the evolution of Gospel music from the 1920's to today. The show in presented and produced by Caroline Chan of RTHK and will feature the Chung Brothers as talking guests! We'll cover every important topic from the quartet format, work song, female Gospel singers, the golden era of Gosple, the crossover period, and modern-day Gospel including the development of which in HK. It will be a roller-coaster ride and will knock your socks off! For sure!

The first episode has been aired today on 10th October 2010. Please listen here.

For those who miss my English voice doing "Jazzing Up," here's a show you don't want to miss. The 4-part series will be aired on every Sunday starting from 10/10/2010 at 8:30 a.m. You can listen to it in the archive here if you are too lazy to get up early Sunday morning to go to church.

For those who do not know Gospel music, you will find these songs pleasant and pleasurable to listen to.

The songlist for the 1st episode are as follows:-
Signature tune - Rock My Soul - Golden Gate Quartet
1. Fisk Jubilee Singers
2. Amazing Grace - Henry & Roger Chung
3. Swing Down Chariot - Golden Gate Quartet
4. Let Your Light from the Lighthouse Shine On Me - Blind Willie Johnson
5. If You See My Savior - Thomas A Dorsey

Enjoy and let the light from the lighthouse shine on you too!
