Love 97.2FM's Dennis Chew to bring back hit radio show 'Grandpa Zhou's Ghost Stories'

Radio station Love 97.2FM deejay Dennis Chew will be bringing back his popular radio show Grandpa Zhou's Ghost Stories, as part of a revamp of the station’s programme lineup to mark its 20th birthday.

SINGAPORE: Radio station Love 97.2FM deejay Dennis Chew will be bringing back his radio show Grandpa Zhou's Ghost Stories, as part of a revamp of the station’s programme lineup to mark its 20th birthday.

Chew’s Grandpa Zhou's Ghost Stories was one of the most popular radio programmes on Y.E.S.93.3FM until it was discontinued a few years ago because he felt it was a little too creepy.

However, the 40-year-old radio veteran has decided to bring it back following his move to Love 97.2FM, where he now co-hosts the station's morning show, due to popular demand.

“For many years now, when I walk on the street, take a taxi or meet with old friends, they’d ask me ‘Why is there no Grandpa Zhou's Ghost Stories any more?' Grandpa Zhou's Ghost Stories is finally back!

"I’ve collected more ghost stories these past few years. I’m not trying to scare you but these stories are real. Are you ready for Grandpa Zhou's Ghost Stories?” said Chew in a media statement.

Listeners will be able to catch Grandpa Zhou's Ghost Stories every Friday from August 29 from 11pm to 12am on Love 97.2FM.

The radio show is just one of the new programmes in Love 97.2FM's revamped programme lineup this year.

There will also be a new programme where 97.2 minutes of specially-selected love songs will be played for listeners from 9pm every weeknight, from August 18.

Earlier this year, the station had introduced a new programme titled K-Krazy Wednesday, in a bid to shake things up.

Helmed by deejay Wallace Ang, K-Krazy Wednesday, which airs every Wednesday from 4pm to 5pm, sees him explore various aspects of Korean culture, from Korean food to Korean music.
