Inaugural Broadcast on Saturday, January 5, 2019

Welcome to the inaugural broadcast of Asia Today with Jeffrey Bingham Mead from the studios of Radio AM 1490 WGCH in Greenwich, Connecticut USA and WGCH.com anywhere via live audio streaming. Douglas Chong of the Hawaii Chinese History Center in Honolulu's Chinatown enlightens us about his recent journey to the mysterious, tantalizing country of Myanmar, formerly Burma. Next, meet Montgomery Hom, a Hollywood media executive known for his work on Basic instinct and Village of the Damned. I caught up with him on New Year's Day in Waikiki to discuss We Served With Pride: The Chinese American Experience in WWII. Lastly, you see elegant pine and bamboo arrangements stationed outside the entrances to homes and businesses in Hawaii. You'll learn about the over 400 year old Japanese tradition of Kadomatsu -though not widely in Japan it is practiced in Hawaii. Remember to tune in each Saturday morning starting 10:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on WGCH/WGCH.com. Contact us anytime at [email protected]
