Fun, funny and absolutely insane. That briefly sums up Mr Ashraf.
A strong advocate for the arts and a humble bathroom singer, Ashraf's passion for music started from his first cry at Thompson Medical Center. He spends most of his time with his loved ones, discovering the hottest new cafés and appearing at hipster events. He hopes to explore the world and ultimately make a difference in the social arts scene.
Catch him on Campus Craze every Thursday 4-6pm, with his equally ridiculous show partners, Kianne and Ellie where they discuss all things on campus.
"Lame, and not just when seated, Elisha can spout nonsense and make puns all day with the occasional deep quote that leaves him wondering where in the world it came from.
A year 2 Pharmacy science student, Elisha has a passion for the Arts. He spends his free time with his loved ones, dancing, watching productions, visiting museums, adventuring and sleeping. Sometimes all at once. Not so much the all rounder he used to be, Elisha gyms Whenever he gets the chance when he finds himself staring at the bottom of yet another tub of Ben&Jerry’s.
This peculiar combination of hobbies and the like helps keep Elisha’s testosterone levels at a constant high to bring you the best and always correct manliest perspective of life and life’s happenings on the Battle Of The Sexes with Kim every Tuesday from 4-6pm."
Elmer is a year 1 Mass Communication student, currently hosting TGIW every Wednesday from 12 to 2pm with Jonathan! Yes - the clubbing show. Even though he hasn't been to a club. Well, not yet anyway!
He's got a great flair for singing and he usually bursts into random jamming sessions with his friends, much to the annoyance of everyone else. It’s kind of like High School Musical but with loads of people staring.
Mean Girls is his all-time favourite movie; he inserts quotes from the film into his conversations once in a while. He's not like a regular jock, he's a *cool* jock! He also tries to make fetch happen, though it’s not gonna happen.
He rocks the smart casual look and takes selfies with a DSLR. He lives for IKEA Meatballs and new chapters of Attack on Titan. He wears beanies in the hot weather and listens to Swedish metal. He takes on a different persona when listening to fierce women rap and his hands are real fit from all the scrolling he does daily on Tumblr.
In short, he’s cool and quirky; served with a piece of cherry on top. Look out for him when he comes on air!
Did video really kill the radio star? Well, aspiring TV producer & filmmaker Emillio thinks otherwise. The Year 2 Mass Communication student initially had his mind set to be a radio DJ. However, he realized that he had a strong passion in video production. One of his many dreams is to direct or produce a local drama for Channel 8. Yes, he enjoys watching local content - especially intense Chinese dramas.
Workaholism aside, Emillio enjoys sipping his Salted Caramel Frappucino at Starbucks and exploring new places and new cafés. As much as it seems that he constantly require company every waking hour, he enjoys alone time for him to reflect and navigate his next move in life. He seeks that forbidden companion that he may never have.
Serving RadioHeatwave for four semesters in a row, Emillio hosts the Muscle Hustle show with the other noisy partner Joel Ng.
With the killer combination of playing basketball and singing, Gevin is often confused by people as the Troy Bolton of NP. Colourful is a way to describe Gevin as he comes from international Business but yet loves Radio, Movies and pretty much the Arts.
A believer of true love, he loves singing love songs and watching romantic stories (the fault in our stars .....his life long goal is to be just like Augustus Waters). Gevin can cook you dinner, can buy you flowers, can take you to the beach, can bring you star gazing, can write you cute notes, and most importantly he is a good listener to your problems and offers you his care.
Aside from his remarkable qualities, he loves Strawberries as they are sweet.....after all, you are what you eat.
Constantly bickering with his sister at home, he now has to do double duty as he bickers with his Sister, Ysabel, on his show, Sibling Rivalry, every Thursday from 2-4pm. Tune in to enjoy the love-hate relationship of the Yaneza Siblings!
Awesomely fat. Need more be said? Joel thinks that his true calling might be comedy and proved it by winning his Secondary School’s talent competition for just that. He claims that people never believe him when he says he’s funny but figures that it just means he’s unbelievably funny.
In desperate need of a good diet plan but in more desperate need for good food, Joel is a self-proclaimed grammar Nazi but a dietary democrat (he just made that up). Having emceed for several events in Secondary School, he loves the sound of his voice and feels that he has an
obligation to share it with the rest of the world.
Joel also has a problem maintaining his ego but it doesn’t matter to him because he’s amazing. Or so he thinks. Catch Joel on Muscle Hustle, Tuesdays 12pm - 2pm with Milo!
"As an MCM freshie, Joseph enjoys having the opportunity to understand and discover how the media works. As nerdy as it sounds, Joseph believes that understanding how things work allows you to make use of it in the best way. From broadcasting on radio to acting to directing, it is Joseph’s dream to reach the masses and put a smile on everyone’s face.
Outside school, Joseph’s music tastes are rather main stream- Adam Lambert and Katy Perry make up the majority of his playlist with a dose of Christina Perri and Maroon 5 to follow. He’s also a passionate Man United fan who screams at his TV and/or throws things around when they aren’t winning. Other than Man Utd, Joseph’s other passion is food – throw him anything from a burger or a steak or sashimi, Joseph will gobble it up, so long as it’s not the dreaded veggies (explains his size).
On RHW, Joseph promises a passionate take on food plus a ride on the wilder, lighter side of life. Put on your earplugs when he laughs though! ;)"
This long-suffering Year 2 Mass Communications student has been in more CCA's than he can remember: Uniformed Groups, Arts, Competitive CCA's and Sports. Radio Heatwave is his latest endeavour and he is thrilled to be a member of this team.
He is proud of his pretentious taste in music, in which the unheard of genre of ""Trailer Music"" features prominently, and is thus absolutely clueless when you mention anything pop-culture-ish to him.
He spends his spare time exercising, playing pretentious computer games, pretentious acting, and sometimes pretentiously screaming at cats, though not all at the same time.
Catch him on Throwback Thursdays, every, well...Thursday from 10-12pm, where he hopes you will come and perhaps listen to him struggle with bygone pop culture due to his ludicrous musical tastes.
"Faris is the livewire of every group, and only wants to share an enjoyable experience with anyone he converses with. He believes that his physical macho-ness and vast knowledge on the sporting scene makes him the "Abang Sports" in the station. Outside of sport, he strives to make positive differences in the lives of his peers, as well as his listeners everyday, no matter how small it may seem to be.
Often known as the guy who says what he means and means what he says, Faris’ determination is unparalleled once he sets his mind to completing a task. “Go je, don’t scared, no fear!”
Faris is a second year Mass Communication Student and is half of “Sport-ify”, which airs every Tuesday from 2PM – 4PM."
"With a name akin to pastry, Danish is nothing short of trying out all sorts of things to fill his time. A techie who happens to prefer the more open crowd; he's always up for making new friends, learning something new and sharing life's tips and tricks. With a knack for organising events and connecting people, this social butterfly knows how to make even the most difficult strangers talk. On the flip side, this extrovert needs his own quiet time too, in which he uses it to express his inner thoughts, through his photography and writing.
Most of all, this guy loves tech and games, one which he displays through his gadgets, gizmos and games list. End the week with a bang and kick off your weekends, by unleashing your inner geek and learn what’s geek-culture-cool in you, on GEEKOUT, every Friday from 12pm to 2pm. Who knows; you just might find your latest gaming or tech addiction, with songs to match!"
"Martin is greatly attached to the sea (anything nautical), spending most of his free time at the beach with his dog, a riveting novel, and a hot cuppa. On most weekends he’d sail out with friends to simply take in the beauty of it all.
Being sensitive by nature, Martin also enjoys channeling his feelings into poetry. His relaxed and “lepak” personality makes him a brilliant listener too! His life is pretty much laid back and he prefers quiet places because he cannot stand 5 minutes swallowed up in crazy crowds.
His music taste varies from electronic music, to a lot of underground independent, and occasionally R&B.
Catch Martin with Diyanah on Wayback Wednesday, Wednesdays 4pm-6pm. "
RISH s/o Vijiya
"is basically the type of laid-back guy who likes to see everyone get along. He has been the resident emcee for various events in secondary school such as Racial Harmony Day, National Day, Total Defense Day, and an intra-school inter-class sports fiesta, for an event known as Friends of Singa.
He has also participated in a research conducted by IKEA and WWF Singapore and has presented in front of the top brass of those companies before. By leading his secondary school CCA first as a PR head and later moving on to become its president, Rish has gained much experience and has learnt how to socialise with people of all ages. Also taking part in a video making competition organised by the National History Museum of Singapore, he has learnt much from the various industry professionals.
A closet horror buff, Rish is the kind of guy his friends go to when they need help with things or when they simply want to chill. Speaking of chill, if you guys need something to chill with just tune in to The YouTube Show, hosted by non other than Rish and his two fantabulous co-hosts
Travis used to be overweight and managed to lose most of his weight by not eating fast food, for the reason that the cashiers will always ask him, “May I have your order, ma’am?”
He has since decided to patron Char Siew Rice stalls instead, and that’s why he hosts the Heatwave CHARts show (I’m not sorry, I tried) with Andrea on Mondays from 12pm – 2pm.
Already a final-year Mass Communication student, he has fallen into an irreparable state of insanity and fails to realise he is a mess. Radio Heatwave has nurtured Travis’ hidden passion for radio, but also made him realise his hidden tendencies of being too crude and rude (oopsie whoopsie!), thus making him unfit for the radio industry.
Nonetheless, Travis still enjoys presenting, public speaking and taking the taxi to school every morning.
Sathia is actually quite loud and weirdly funny, with his little gang of misfits at least. Though the 19 year old may seem like an awkward turtle at times, Sathia’s a real outgoing person that isn't afraid to try new things.
Sathia has hosted tons of events in Chua Chu Kang Secondary School and Ngee Ann Poly, like Chua Chu Kangs 20th Anniversary and the NP’s Free Ice Cream Day! If that doesn't sound interesting enough wait till you get a load of his voice; His voice is so deep, he completes a bass choir. Sathia also has a really strong passion for the arts. Not surprising as he has led his drama club in Chua Chu Kang Secondary School as their Chairperson in the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) and attained two gold awards and one silver award. That’s not all there is to this fun loving chap, he’s also a HUGE gamer! He’s been playing console, handheld and computer games since he was a little kid!
Where music is concerned, Sathia appreciates a variety of music genres as long as it's appealing to his ears.
If you’d like to hear more of his deep, enrapturing voice, he hosts the Geekout show with his wonderful co-hosts, Danish and Izza every Friday from 12-2pm, as they talk about everything tech savvy as they bring you the latest geek news.
He does the Indian accent pretty well too.
