up ko lang itong thread
* Manong Joe Taruc already has younger people helping him out in DZRH. Let's not forget that Ruth Abao has also emerged as the female anchor par excellance for this station.
* Atty. No Case is now on DWIZ -- where Rey Langit is the boss.
* Vice-President Noli is still with DZMM but because of the demands of his job, his program is aired on Saturdays, 8-10 am, over DZMM pa rin. The title of his radio show is Para Sa Iyo, Bayan and Cheryl Cosim (Salamat Dok) is his co-host.
* RMN DZXL already has a lot of former ABS-CBN standouts as its announcers -- Ira Panganiban (also the station manager of XL), Jake Maderazo, Ogie Diaz, Erwin Tulfo, Doris Bigornia and former Radyo Patrol reporter Willie Delgado Jr. All of them were the victims of Maria Ressa's takeover of ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs.
* DWST is now YES FM. Its format is the same as Love Radio because they have the same owner -- MBC.
If I remember right, it was Boom Gonzales who conceptualized Hip 26 during his RX days.
Up for the thread!
I wasn't joining kasi wala naman akong maikukuwento... my actual serious radio listening only started with KCFM when Chico and Delamar moved there (because my parents were listeners). Hahaha.
Dan, I was listening to the MP3s you posted on the WRocK thread and realized that this package was used both by K-Lite and WRocK... some rivalry, I must say!
well, you're never too young or too old to remember...hehe!
i have mentioned a lot of my fondest memories of the old KCFM here...i forgot to add that my first--and so far, only--radio station sticker happens to be from KCFM, when the guys covered the ateneo freshie night back in 2001...i think i've mentioned this already, na the DJs who were there were dylan thomas, peachy (later known as alex on 99.5RT) and john (formerly seahorse back in their "we are family!" days)...pero unlike what the old LS and the quest stations do na live remote broadcast via microwave ang setup ng coverage, the KC guys who covered our freshie night only did updates by phone patch (as in, nagdala talaga sila ng landline na telepono doon), and didn't air the event live...
about the jingles i posted on the wrock thread...just for clarification, as far as i can remember kasi, iba yung pagkakakanta ng calls na "103.5 k-lite" sa pagkakanta ng calls ng wrock...so i don't think metro manila's k-lite didn't use the same jingle packages as wrock...
it just so happened na yung biniling jingle packages ng wrock were used for a US station also called k-lite--k-lite kasi, i believe, is pretty much a common name for light rock stations in the US...
jay had also explained a little earlier in this thread yung ilan sa mga jingles na ginamit ng k-lite natin sa 'pinas noon...for one thing, i get a sudden surge of recall for one of the jingles every weekend on campus fm (whenever ANY of the jocks play "the right kind of love"--the opening strains of that song, as already mentioned here, were also used in one of the k-lite manila jingles)...
"Hello Metro Manila. We're keeping you in touch...
With the City's BIG MIX...KOOL 106!"
I have very limited knowledge regarding radio then during my childhod years in the 90s although I still remember that there was this station on FM which used to air this jingle "We are family!". on AM, I'm pretty much grew up listening to DZMM where they had this morning show anchored by Daniel Razon called "Gising Pilipinas" with a very catchy jingle. They aired this on Ch. 2 before Alas Singko Y Media.
Of course I cant forget LS FM's Top 20 @ 12 which is sort of like a fixture on our radio whenever my yaya would turn it on. Though it took sometime before I got myself listening to it again years later.
LS and RR have the most promotions on TV because of their owners GMA and ABS respectively so I still remember 7 airing plugs of LS around 1999 (A big circle with the GMA logo on top with 97.1 Campus Radio below it) as well as ABS for WRR around 2000 (yung may nakadisplay "WRR 101.9 For Life!" na may pa-iba iba background sa likod nito).
I actually listened to DWBR every weekday morning for their morning show "The Morning Bureau"(?). During commercial breaks they air this short program that has a TV version on UNTV then, where the host would often make commentaries ranging from about political icons to everyday stuff. I remember that he has his own share of Erap and FPJ jokes at the height EDSA Dos and the 2004 elections respectively. Too bad, those shows were gone since last year pa.
I remember the old K-Lite jingles kasi, and they were sung that way (at least the "K-Lite" part - they're still in use at the K-Lite stations in Baguio and Ologapo). I think hindi ginamit yung longer sung parts, and instead, they had ramps with the "K-Lite" part in the end.
(Sobrang geek mode: indeed it was 93.7 K-Lite in Houston, which doesn't exist now... it's currently a classic rock station.)
I believe DWBR's morning show - at least now, after their simulcast of One Morning - is called Broadcaster's Bureau. The commentaries from Larry Henares are still on the radio station (around 9ish and repeated at night yata) but are now mostly readings of articles he stumbles upon - sign of the times, perhaps?
As for whether Make My Day is still shown on UNTV, I can't recall...
same thing goes for the old sing-song WLS-FM jingles...i'm pretty sure that the GMA radio bossmen from about two decades ago bought the same jingle package created for that great chicago AM station, WLS 890khz (it was formerly a music station, also nicknamed "the great AM89"; talk station na siya ngayon), and had it recreated specifically for WLS-FM back home...
