Q. What were you doing before you came to Phuket ?
A. I was Rockin' n' Rollin' through the Summer Circus of Fun that is the 'UK Festival Scene'.
Q. How did you start working at Live 89.5 ?
A. I received an e-mail from a man with vision, The Big Boss, 'Mr Simon Samaan', and said yes to his offer of broadcasting across the Airwaves of Phuket again.
Q. What do you like most about living here ?
A. it's not There.. (whatever 'There' is)
Q.What's your favourite film and why?
A. Probably 'DIG' !!, it's a Rockumentary mainly about 2 bands filmed over 7 years and it's one of the great insights into the world of musicians - explosive and dramatic yet real, it's a rollercoster of a movie that I'll never get tired of watching.
Host of 'Good Morning Phuket' weekdays from 7am
Chris comes to us all the way from the sunny beaches of Canada, where he worked as a Radio and Television presenter in the should-be capital of Toronto. After unintentionally witnessing a series of mafia hits, Chris fled Canada for the safety of himself and his family a la 'Some Like It Hot'.
After bouncing around Europe and the Middle East for a few months he landed softly on the island of Phuket and made it his new home. Chris has an affinity for Water Buffalo and talks of them often, but also keeps you informed with the latest News, Weather and Sport as the host of "Good Morning Phuket" every morning from 7-11am on Live 89.5.
Host of 'LA Spinz'
Peter Reynolds live and loves the whole celebrity gossip scene. He lives in LA and has contacts in the industry so you know you’re getting the inside news on who’s who and what’s happening in Tinsel Town. Peter’s ‘LA Spinz’ plays three times every day.
Host of 'Health Moment with Hayden'
Hayden is a HN - 'Certified Health Nut'. He's a surfer, snowboarder, Celebrity Coach, loves eating good food and going walkabout. His first radio work was at 91.FM in New Zealand as Promotions Manager: basically organising wet T-Shirt competitions in pubs (hotels). Nice work if you can get it!
Hayden also acts as Assistant Tour Manager for the band 'Placebo', organising live radio interviews/ shout outs/tv shoots/journalists, blah, blah. On Live 89.5 Hayden presents a daily 'chin wag' about living well, lifestyle, dropping fat and all that stuff.
An all round freak who doesn't follow what most 'normal' people do.
Host of 'Asia Pop 40'
Asia Pop 40 is Asia’s first locally-produced and regionally-syndicated weekly radio music show which airs in two languages (English and Mandarin) in over 100 cities across Asia, the Pacific and the Middle East.
Commenting on Joey’s appointment, Executive Producer of Asia Pop 40 Rob Graham stated, “We are thrilled that Joey has joined our team. From the moment I heard his unique voice and personality, I knew he’d be a great fit for the show. He has very large shoes to fill – literally! Dom did an incredible job as the founding host of AP40 for five-and-a-half years and everyone at EON Media wish him well in his future media activities.”
Joey Chou’s first episode hosting the show was in January, as a guest host on the annual Asia Pop 140 countdown of the prior year’s biggest 140 songs.
Chou stated, “Music was my first love and, unfortunately for my former girlfriends, video games was my second! And although I have a doubledegree in Political Science and Economics, I won’t mention any of that boring stuff on-air! I’m so excited to be the new host on Asia Pop 40.”
