Sarawak.fm spreads Hari Raya cheer with special programming
THE SPIRIT OF RAYA IS HERE AGAIN, with happy Hari Raya tunes playing over the radio and Ramadan Bazaars open all over town. To celebrate the upcoming Hari Raya celebration the end of this month, local radio station Sarawak.fm taped an on-location radio programme at a hotel called ‘Syoknye Raya’ last Saturday (July 5).
With the support of various agencies and NGOs, Sarawak.fm’s programme included a mini charity show from guest artists under Natz Production Sdn Bhd – Suwara Band, Muzzy Band and Alleeya, quizzes, and duit raya distribution.
About 60 orphans from the Laila Taib Welfare Complex and 10 orphans from the Baitulrahman Welfare Association were among the recipients of duit raya distribution and donations of cash and hampers from several donors including Managing Director of Gading Kenyalang Sdn Bhd, Natz Production Sdn Bhd and Pua Heritage Noraini Salleh, SlimWorld, Sadong Jaya assemblyman Aidel Lariwoo and Baitulmal Sarawak.
The programme enabled Sarawak.fm radio announcers to interact with their listeners as well as to promote artists under Natz Production Sdn Bhd like Suwara Band, Muzzy Band and Alleeya (finalist of Idola Kecil 6) who have collaborated in recording a song called ‘Raya Kita’ which is to be included in the ‘Gema Aidilfitri’ album.
The event was sponsored by Gading Kenyalang, Natz Production, and Slimworld.
