Happy Valentine’s Day! Set up by CityU’s School of Creative Media (SCM), “Small City Big Talk” features a special web radio programme on 14 February for members of the University community and the public to express love to their dear ones.


Interested parties can write a message of up to 30 words to their loved ones and email it to, or place it in the collection box at a counter outside CityU’s Student Canteen, 5/F, Amenities Building, between 11am and 4pm today. The Valentine’s Day special web radio programme will be made available online at by this evening. All love messages sent in will be read out during the programme. Don’t miss it!


SmallCity Big Talk” is a web radio project led by Dr Lester Chan, Assistant Professor in the SCM, and it is produced by a group of enthusiastic SCM students. It is the first web radio project initiated by members of a local tertiary institution. Launched in April 2003, “Small City Big Talk” has offered a variety of regular programmes, updated weekly, ranging from Jazz In, the humorous Talk Show, and Rock’it Talkie by the CityU Band Society, along with diverse specials to spice up the day. So tune in to and have a blast!


“In preparing each web radio programme, we learn more about how this medium operates, and gain real-life broadcasting experience, as well as training in script-writing, drama recording, audio mixing and production skills,” said Miss Jan Lau, a Year Two SCM student. “We put a lot of effort into designing the themes of our programme, in hopes of bringing to our audience something interesting and thought-provoking. Miss Lau also recommends two recent web radio programmes produced in response to last December’s tsunami disaster in South Asia. In the programmes, two guests are interviewed: Professor Y S Wong, Vice-President for Administration and Convenor of the CityU Support Group for South Asia Tsunami Victims; and Ms Elizabeth Cheung, Senior Counsellor in CityU’s Student Development Services.  


With the University's educational philosophy of Whole Person Development, CityU teachers help their students fully develop their talents through participating in various activities and independent study. CityU students are groomed to cultivate artistic and cultural sensibilities for the benefit of society by exploring their perceptions of life and social issues.
