This week's guest on Resident Voices is a real life super hero. Michael James Egerton is the former private investigator who arrested over 568 criminals in the UK, made massive contributions to aviation safety in Asia, and in 2012 spearheaded an investigation that ended corruption at a major Hong Kong based airline. He has a third-degree black sash in wing chun, has completed numerous marathons, ran over 100km, has a law degree and a Master's Degree in Chinese Studies, and has senior roles in three companies including Radio Lantau.
The director of three businesses, very unique and highly beneficial to Hong Kong, Michael Egerton is also a consumer rights activist committed to protecting consumers from harm caused by irresponsible manufacturers and retailers.
But ever modest, he doesn't talk about any of that in this episode of Resident Voices - he talks about Sharawaji Records, a UK based-record label that has run remotely from Lantau since 2011. Hear about the growing popularity of surf music, and a bit about punk, powerpop, spaghetti western and new releases on Sharawaji Records from The Zillatones, The Stryd, The Tsunamibots, and The Syndicate of Surf.
Don't miss this chance to hear from one of Hong Kong's most dynamic business owners and get an insight into why the taste-making policy of a niche record label has quickly led to Radio Lantau being established as Hong Kong's number one radio station.
Hear Michael Egerton on radiolantau.com on Friday at 1pm, (repeated on Sunday sometime after 1pm) and in the archive a few days later.
