Cantonese Pop music program: Donations to Food Angel 惜食堂
I had been recording many Cantonese pop songs by iPhone 11 in the past few weeks. I sent them to hundreds of people almost on a daily basis. To my surprises, the feedbacks had been tremendous. If my irrationality translates into gracefulness relieving your stress, I am happy to go on.
Today, I was listening at AE Sheung Wan. I began with Sam Hui and ended with Lesley Cheung.
許冠傑: 1. 應該要自愛 2.學生歌
林子祥: 1. 活色生香 2.邁步向前
張國榮：1. 拒絕再玩 2. 無心睡眠 3. 共同渡過
The playback quality of these supposedly average recordings today was proven otherwise to be “phenomenal”. Realism is unprecedented. Guests who came in at different time slot were in constant awe due to immense musicality projected by the system with tremendous speed and abundance of energy in the most resolute manner (thanks to Thales exquisite cartridge ST, 神級作品 in the words of Lincoln Cheng 大草）。
The last song: “共同渡過” performed by Leslie Cheung LIVE in HK Stadium was especially touching.
I couldn’t help but encored another three songs with the presence of Dalby Pirueta Record Weight on the Vertere RG1 analog deck.

I am delighted to be immensely touched by the songs that grew up with us. The heartfelt responses triggered me to do a series of canton pop appreciation sessions at AE with an aim to raise some funds to Food Angel 惜食堂 to help people who don’t have enough food to eat. AE will match the sum of donations at each session
