I’ve always liked the Cantonese dialect though I don’t speak it very well. While in NTU, I used to listen to FM 95.4, a Malaysian radio station which plays a mix of Mandarin and Cantonese songs. I also found 1 or 2 online sites that broadcasted RTHK (HK public radio stations) live. Unfortunately, these sites had lot of lag and the buffering was bad.
Almost 10 years on, my spoken Cantonese is still as bad but my love of Cantonese songs is still there. Inspired by some retro Cantonese music on FM 95.4, I decided to do another online search for Cantonese radio stations. Found this terrific website, Radiotime, which broadcasts live music from radio stations around the globe – free! Is that great or what! I’ve bookmarked the site. So if you want to listen to a radio station in another country, do check that site out! 🙂
Ok, did a bit more research on available sites:

http://www.hkvpradio.com/ (online radio with Cantonese songs & the occasional Mandarin song… great site ‘cos HK radio stations tend to have too much talk shows and not enough music)
