Good news for Malaysian baby boomers. Radio Klasik Nasional plays popular old Malay songs to bring back memories of your good old days.
Though I’m not a awek Melayu (Malay lass), but I have been listening to Radio Klasik or Radio Klasik Nasional since it launched way back in 2006.
I remember its tagline used to be ‘Menggamit Memori‘. Of course, it has been changed to ‘Menggamit Kenangan‘.
Probably the station received heavy flak from the Malay community. It changed the word ‘memori‘ to the proper Malay word ‘kenangan‘.
By the way, these days there are many so-called ‘anglicized’ Bahasa Malaysia or Malay words, that include: famili, elaun, motivasi, lanskap, kompromi, koprat, sek, etc.
Radio Klasik Nasional Plays Popular Old Malay Songs
I enjoy all those melodious Malay songs and music from the 60’s right up to the 90’s.
Till today, I still have a couple of old Malay albums among my collection of old records or vinyls.
My all-time favorite are songs from the Pop-yeh-yeh days of simple formulaic pop structures, catchy melodies, and the typical crystal-clear twanging guitar sound ala The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Ventures or The Shadows.
Back in the swinging Sixties, there were many popular bands or kugiran from both Malaysia (or known as Malaya back then) and Singapore.
For those of you who love to know more about Malaysian music from pre/post Merdeka, then listen to this podcast from BFM9.9.
