This month's celebrity
Wyman Wong
Never paln for the future

Mr. Wyman Wong Wai Man is the creative director — and a popular disc jockey — at Commercial Radio 2. He also composes song lyrics. He was graduated from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1991 with a bachelor's degree in social work. He worked as a part-time deejay when he was a Year 3 student at CUHK and worked full-time after graduation.

Wyman’s talent in writing lyrics is revealed by his work. One recent piece, “Have a Better Life Than You”, performed by pop singer Amanda Lee, was once a hit song. Wyman can be heard on CR2 Monday through Friday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. His programme is called The Show Must Go on Harassing.

Q: Before you became a disc jockey, how did you view the profession?

A: I thought disc jockeys must have strong and distinctive style and their programmes should be able to inspire the audience to think.

Q: Which disc jockey do you admire most?

A: Jan Lamb. He is a smart guy. He can always provide an unique perspective in viewing things, which always gives the audience a completely new horizon.

Q: What is your own golden rule in lyrics writing?

A: I will not write anything that is grammatically incorrect or just follows what others have said before. I have to say my own words in my own creation.

Q: Have you prepared for the day when you come up with no inspiration but still have to hand in your work?

A: Like most of the other lyrics creators, I try to explore as many topics as I can and write them down in spare time. Then nothing special to say, I will try to write about these “stored” topics.

Q: What do you want to do right now?

A: I want to write a book because I want to express all my feelings towards life and share them with others. Q: What is the thing that you are most unsatisfied with?

A: The only thing that I am unsatisfied is my love affair.

Q: What is your goal in life?

A: I am not the kind of persons who believes in long term planning in their lives. Life bears a lot of uncer tainties, which make it interesting and exciting. The most important thing is to seize the happiness at every moment.
