So, was invited by Astro, via Jollence Lee, to the launching of Radio Bayu at Sutera today. Met lotsa old press friends. Honestly, I was a bit in the dark about the event and was obviously out of touch with my journalism instincts. In a mouthful, Radio Bayu is a satellite radio channel that plays purely Sabahan music, not necessarily KadazanDusunMurut music only, but all kinds of music and genre, of artists and musicians from Sabah. So for the folks that are pressing the 'scan' button on your car radio or handphone, its not there yet. Look for it on your channel guide on your Astro. I guess with Sabahans being everywhere in Malaysia now, its only natural that a Sabahan radio channel is up. By the way, all the radio announcers will be talking in Sabahan Malay and I think Sabahan English too. Bah, here are some photos of the launching.

These are our radio announcers, don't worry, memang butul-butul orang Sabah!
Constantine Anthony, funny to be listening to him talk Sabah Malay, always pictured him all 'English'..ahahha..by the way, the hand gesture I think represents a microphone..kan?
Yuriz Abdul Rahman, memang orang KK..says he comes from Kampung KK..
