When one thinks of traditional radio, the beautiful and beloved Jamie Yeo often comes to mind. Jamie has long dabbled in acting and presenting, making her an entertainment veteran, of sorts. She started her radio DJ career at MediaCorp Radio’s 987FM, and the rest is history.
Aside from completely kicking a** at hosting, acting, presenting, and being a mother to two, Jamie also spends her time bringing us dainty and timeless gold jewellery at her business project, Lula J Jewelry. The pieces are available in three types of gold—yellow, rose, and white—one for every outfit or occasion.
This week, we speak to Jamie on the 5 songs and podcasts that make up her life.
Tell us your name, and how you’d describe yourself to someone whom you’re meeting for the first time.
Jamie Yeo. I’ve been in the entertainment industry for half my life but I would never really tell anyone that because that would mean they could probably guess my age. Oh wait, there’s always wiki so…. Ha. Have to say, of all the jobs I’ve done from acting to radio presenting, being a mom to two cheeky kids is by far the most challenging job I’ve had!
What are the five tracks of your life?
1. Under the Bridge – Red Hot Chili Peppers
2. Joe Rogan’s podcast
3. Imagine – John Lennon
4. Angel – Sarah McLachlan
5. Where You Lead Me – Jacque Deshetler
Why would you consider this playlist to be significant to you?
It has defined various chapters in my life. Imagine reminds me of childhood because dad loved that song and sang it often on our home karaoke system. 😉 Under the Bridge took me through my teens while I was living in the States, Angel comforted me through my 20s as I dove head on into the Media industry.
Where You Lead Me (a Christian song) guided me through the last 20 years, and Joe Rogan’s podcast makes me think and laugh in the “woke” world of ours currently.
Pick one track and tell me your fondest/most interesting memory of it.
I would have to say it’s Where You Lead Me. Through it all, I know He has blessed me greatly and taken care of me and given me lots even though I don’t really deserve any of it.
If I had asked you this question 10 years ago, what is the one track that your then-self would have picked as your favourite?
Probably Yellow by Coldplay because I loved them very much 10 years ago! Now not so haha!
