radio memories...

sirloin_steaksirloin_steak Jump brother, jump brother! PExer
alam kong marami sa atin dito ang tulad kong lumaking nakikinig sa radyo day-in and day-out...and with that, i'm also pretty sure that a lot of stuff from your favorite on-air moments, radio station jingles/station IDs, even commercials (whether good or bad) have stuck in your heads...

share 'nyo naman dito sa thread na ito! hopefully, marami tayong mapapagkuwentuhan, at maraming memories ang muling "mabubuhay" sa 'ting isipan... :)

i'll start with a few...

* rey langit and joe taruc used to be a classic morning tandem for DZRH back in the '80s and early '90s (hanggang lumipat si "pareng rey" sa radyo veritas, and later, sa DWIZ)...sila noon ang anchors ng "balitang bayan numero uno" (which is still on air, and still anchored by joe taruc with a lot of co-anchors through the years like andy vital, jay sonza and ali sotto, among others)...

* speaking of DZRH and "balitang bayan numero uno", anyone remember "lola sela, bungangera" and "atty. no case"? para sa akin, they're among one of the best commentary-comedy segments on AM radio. :P

* si vice president noli de castro at ang radio show niya sa DZMM na nagpasikat sa kanya: "KABAYAN" (kapangyarihan ng mamamayan, balita at talakayan)...as i was to learn later on, that radio show had been carried over from the time when the 630khz frequency was occupied by DWWW (yung AM station noon ng RPN when marcos was still president)...the frequency, of course, was turned over to ABS-CBN after EDSA '86...

* 'yung mga malalaking radio raffle promos of the '90s, led by "star-vaganza na, bombo-nanza pa!" (star fm/bombo radyo), the MBC raffles and "radyo milyonaryo nationwide" (RMN)...i joined the RMN promo when i was an avid listener of the old WKC... ;)

* the time when what is now known as yes fm 101.1 was still "the country's showbiz tsismis and music station", DWST...basta may showbiz tsismis na bago, lagi noong may live reports a la AM radio...haha! :P

'yun lang muna for now...kayo naman, mga PExers! :)

    *yung sa dzrh, we used to listen sa kanila pag umaga noong bata pa ako, do you know the "bubwit" haha. tsaka my nanay love the radio dramas! may drama nga sila na pambata rin before. dati kasi after the rosing typhoon nawalan kami ng kuryente for a month so madalas kami makinig sa transistor radio noon. Yup naalala ko nga si lolang bungangera

    * sa dzmm, before cristy and jobert polluted the afternoon showbiz slot kay Inday Badiday yun then when she left ogie diaz and Ms. M ang pumalit. i love Ms. M and nakakatawa si ogie diaz.

    * isa pa sa dzmm na gusto ko si Joey Galvez and his alter ego si MARIE BUBOT :lol:

    * speaking of Ms. M, I used to listen to her sa 12 midnight to 2 am slot nya sa DZMM and she was very popular, marami naintriga sa tunay nyang katauhan. ako i knew her na before kasi she used to handle HEART TO HEART sa WRR under the name JERRI.

    * I love countdowns sobra haha. KOOL 106 has two countdowns the top20 opm which is on 11am-12noon and top20 international 8-9pm. DM 95.5 naman has the daily top 15 and of course the legendary top20 at 12 sa LS

    * syempre my fav station nung bata pa ako eh WKC "WE ARE FAMILY". I love the COUNT,GROVER, CAPTAIN TURK,RUDOLPH RIVERA, VINCE GARUCHO,VILMA SAYA,MICHAEL BABY, HIL BILLY WILLY et al. I love the joke portion and pag sunday they have 4 DIFFERENT COUNTDOWNS, the opm,mellow, the crazy countdown [where the the top20 songs are played not in order] and the regular top 20.

    marami pa akong memories, will be back later hehe gather ko lang thoughts ko :D

    Neil Ocampo... Grade 3 pa lang ako pinakikinggan ko na siya... Magandang magandang (hanggang maubusan siya ng hininga) Umaga! Tapos may gabinete pa siya... Mang Tonio, Kiskisenator Juan Flavor, at ang paborito ko noon sa gabinete niya ay si Nilo Roses (ginaya kay Nilo Rosas na dati yatang secretary ng DECS...) Alas-10 pa ang timeslot niya noon...

    Tapos yung themesong pa ng Mellow Touch dati:

    You are the minstrel, I'm your guitar
    I'll play your music straight to your heart
    Each day (hindi ko na matandaan...)
    You are the minstrel, I'm your guitar
    The mellow sound of W double L...
  • forgforg Administrator PEx Moderator
    ^^ I like Neil Ocampo din pala and his gabinete :lol:
  • sirloin_steaksirloin_steak Jump brother, jump brother! PExer
    @forg: of course! how can i forget...si deo macalma and his "ayon sa report ng aming...bubuwit...happy birthday muna kay..."...naging parang orasan namin ang DZRH for a good number of years eh...parang ganito: pag umalis na kami ng bahay at "atty. no case" na (or "lola sela", bago sila nagkapalit ng oras) sa "balitang bayan numero uno", maaga pa kami (mga 6:30-ish yun)...pag inabot na kami ng "eveready newscast", kailangan nang magmadali (dahil 7:00 yun, at 7:20 nun ang klase ko)...pag inabot na kami ng "espesyal na balita", wala na...late na! hahaha! :P

    and the countdowns...yes...there was a time (in the late '90s and early '00s) na kabisado ko halos lahat ng countdown title ng lahat ng station...i dont know if i still do! haha...of course, isa sa mga legendary yung "top 20 at 12" sa LS dati...and yung WKC "countdown sunday", naaalala ko rin yun (dahil naging favorite ko ang KC especially during the time of "we are family!" and much later, "live it up!")...isang buong araw na puro countdown...naabutan ko rin yung "the kool 9 at 9" noong bagong bukas pa lang ang kool 106 back in '92...number 1 song nila for how many nights (daily countdown sila nun) ang "till they take my heart away" ni clair marlo--thus, naging kauna-unahang song of the year yun sa yearend countdown nila that year (aptly titled "the kool 106 on kool 106"--that went 7 hours long sa dami ng kanta)...

    @hatfield: maybe this'll help with the old mellow touch jingle:

    "each tune you sing just makes me
    fall in love again so sweetly..." :)
  • hatfield110hatfield110 Mr. 110 Percent PExer
    ^Salamat po... Nakakalungkot na nga lang na hindi na natin mapapakinggan ang jingle na 'yan ng Mellow Touch... haaay... the good ole days...
  • sirloin_steaksirloin_steak Jump brother, jump brother! PExer
    @forg and hatfield uli: oh yes, it's neil ocampo and the original "todo-arangkada"...kung si michael v., the man of a thousand faces, si neil ocampo, the man of a thousand voices...pinaka-paborito ko dun si mang tonio. :P

    tsaka, forg, nabanggit mo rin si joey galvez at yung "tsismis 'to, 'day!" (yun yung title nung show niya nun sa hapon sa MM)...alam mo bang kasama si john "sweet" lapus dun? nakalimutan ko na nga lang kung anong pangalan niya dun, kung siya yung si "cleopetra ashfall y batulahar"...haha! :P

    eto pa...kool 106 was the first top 40 format FM station--at least to the best of my knowledge--that experimented with airing a 30-minute-long newscast in the evening, with "the big news on radio" (radio version ng flagship newscast ng channel 5)...7pm every weeknight 'to nun...and if my memory serves me right, the anchors were arvee villamarzo (the former channel 5 voice-over, a.k.a. "the raven" when he's on board as a DJ) and gidget alikpala (later to be known as alex alikpala paglipat niya sa ABS-CBN)...
  • kariristakarirista Pasaway buster PExer
    All the memories mentioned here are so vivid! Aaminin ko na laking DZRH din ako (at first with the Rey Langit-Joe Taruc combo then eventualy with Joe Taruc-Deo MacCalma, kasama na si Lola Sela Bungangera at si Atty. No case who incidentally is now with DWIZ every weeknight, 7:30-8 pm) then crossing with DZMM's Noli De Castro [who eventually became Senator & Vice President Noli De Cas(h)tro] tas mel and Jay pa then Tambalang Failon at Sanchez at 8 am pa. Pati ung time ni Jay Sonza doing the 4 am slot on DZMM tas nagbibigay pa ng agri tips, oh those memories were so vivid...

    Lemme add more to those:

    * My regular weekday radio fare from 3-4 pm would be listening to Mon Tulfo's Isumbong Mo Kay Tulfo na me kasamang murang napakalutong tulad ng "T*** i** mo!" sa mga nang-aagrabyado sa mga inaapi sa lipunan (kasama na dun ung Mga Banat ni Tulfo kung saan tintitira nya mga pulitikong tulad ni Lacson noong una and lately before he was "axed" by Atty. Cabangon-Chua, si FG)

    * Not to be forgotten as well would be of course Your Maximum Music Authority, 99.5 RT! (yan ung incarnation ng RT na kinalakhan ko)

    I'll add more to that pag me maisip pa ako... :D
  • sirloin_steaksirloin_steak Jump brother, jump brother! PExer
    ^^ aysus...oo naman! "mel and jay"...that show being a hit is an understatement. too bad, nang lumipat sa GMA ang dalawa, "mel and jay" on radio only continued for a short time sa DZBB...i think this came about after inatake sa puso si mel tiangco...yan tuloy, umalis ang jay sonza sa BB at lumipat naman sa RH, then sa DZXL a few years later...

    ang kulit naman nung "isumbong mo kay tulfo"...talagang nagmumura siya on the air ha? ba't pinalampas ng KBP yun? tsk tsk tsk tsk... :P

    eto...mapunta ako sa mga radio ads...may isa talagang di mabura-bura sa isip ko right now: from about 5 years ago, an ad for pacific internet promoting lyrics.com, kung saan kumakanta ang isang lalaki nang ganito:

    "all tired my cells...don't wanna be all tired my cells...demi moore..."
    (the song, of course, is "all by myself", and we know what the correct lyrics are! hahaha...)
  • sirloin_steaksirloin_steak Jump brother, jump brother! PExer
    woops...pa-up lang uli. ;)
  • kariristakarirista Pasaway buster PExer
    Dapat kahapon pa tong reply na to kaso nagluko ang Pex kahapon eh.

    Oo nagmumura un (Mon Tulfo) ng napakalutong sa ere, and he was able to get away with it. I forgot to mention that he started the trend of saying "[email protected]" on-air, which is being used also by his brothers (Raffy, Erwin, and Ben) in the Philippine broadcast profession. (Read elsewhere that Ben Tulfo was even a DJ with an FM radio station in the metro in the 80's.)

    More radio memories:

    * Si Ely Cruz Ramirez (na nasa DZBB na ngayon tuwing hatinggabi) ang simuno ng sex talk on radio gamit ang mga malulutong at malalalim na Tagalog sexually-explicit terms nung nasa DZXL pa sya from the late 80's-mid-90's, tapos kasunod ng program nya ay si Rolly Gonzalo at Rene Sta. Cruz (one of the original motormouths of Philippine radio, only overshadowed by the person who speaks through his nose, Mike Enriquez)...Together with Rene Sta. Cruz, they eventually moved to DZBB. According to taxi drivers, they also prefer listening to his program kasi nakakapangising ung sexual innuendo talk nya...

    * Who can forget the late Paeng Yabut (dating 12 mn-4 am sa DZBB nung panahon na andun pa sa istasyun na un sina Helen Vela (SLN), Bobby Guanzon at ung nagsisimula pa lang noon na si Jessica Soho)? from 12-3 nagpapatugtog un ng mga lumang awitin tas pag 3-4 magbabalita na un, and what makes him distinct is his unique voice and ung pagiging matatas nya sa Tagalog...

    * Before DWIZ-AM became a public affairs station in the mid-90s, it was a music station with the tagline "Sunshine City" (me jingle pa sila nun of the same title) at ang opis nila ay nasa Insular Building pa sa Ayala (before Atty. Cabangon-Chua of Fortune Insurance bought the station).

    More to come kapag makaalala ako :D
  • sirloin_steaksirloin_steak Jump brother, jump brother! PExer
    ^^ yeah...i came across some old magazines in the '80s--mga 1985 'ata--where i saw a young ben tulfo endorsing vitamins...nakita ko dun yung airname niya: "benny tishiba"...he was a DJ for 91.5, first when it was still had the call sign DWMM-FM, tapos nung naging KYFM sila...

    i think i still have the weekday prog sked ng DZBB back in the late '80s-early '90s memorized...subukan natin...(at sana tama rin ako. hahaha!)

    12-4am paeng yabut / "tayo'y mag-aliw"
    4-6am lito villarosa / "radyo taliba"
    6-8am bobby guanzon / "tawag-pansin" (with "bisig-bayan network balita" at 7am)
    8-9am bobby guanzon and jessica soho / "kape at balita" (simulcast on channel 7)
    9-11am armand roque / "mr. public service"
    11-1130am "bisig-bayan network balita"
    1130am-1230pm german moreno / "bisitang artista" (now entitled "master showman"
    1230-130pm inday badiday / "inday ng buhay ko" (lagi niya yun uumpisahan with the song "i believe")
    130-3pm helen vela / "lovingly yours, helen"
    3-4pm rey pacheco / "senyor balita"
    4-430pm "bisig-bayan network balita"
    4-6pm rene jose / "ang inyong kabalikat"
    6-8pm jimmy gil / "presinto 594" (later entitled "super igme"; now "jimmy gil live")
    8-10pm "manang" rose clores / "manang rose health program" (later "super kalusugan")
    10pm-12mn "don" manolo favis / "dis is manolo"
    ...and--at least in the morning--hourly news updates mula sa ngayo'y tinatawag na "super kuyang", si henry jones ragas. :P

    alam mo, i once saw an old DWIZ sticker--mga bandang '80s pa siguro ito, when IZ was still a music station (and--as i read once--was owned by a subsidiary of MBC, so naging sister station siya for a while ng love radio at RH)...itsurang license plate siya na nakasulat, "WIZ-882", tapos, instead of "pilipinas" on the bottom part, "music * news" ang nakasulat...sa bahay yun ng isang kaibigan ng parents ko...that friend of theirs na kasamahan din nila sa couples for christ turned out to be allan allanigue, former reporter/anchor for RMN who is now with PBS radyo ng bayan and channel 4... ;)

    Ben Tulfo likewise worked for 93.1 EI-FM in the early 80's although I'm not sure if this was post-MM days or before. Thanks SS for reminding me what the station's call sign was before it became KY 91.5. I remember now it's DWMM-FM!

    Tulfo's contemporaries at EI were King George (later George Boone), The Friendly DJ (used to be with XB-FM), Lady Love, among others. I believe he was the pinchhitter of that radio team back then...
  • sirloin_steaksirloin_steak Jump brother, jump brother! PExer
    ^^hi there, jay! no prob...good to see you post here...i was reading the 99.5RT thread and really enjoyed reading all your info about radio in the '70s and '80s...nakakatuwa na you remember that much!

    i'm also fond of reading about philippine broadcast history...and basing from what i've read from you and other sources like yung mga jingle magazines noon ng erpats ko (where jingle had this pinoy radio news column called "static strut"), mukhang napakaganda ng radio scene noong '80s...hehe!

    anyway, going back to the topic...you know, never ko naabutan si ben tulfo as a DJ, pero, based on that vitamin ad i saw, he might have probably stayed with 91.5 even through the switch in call letters from DWMM to DWKY...kasi i saw that same vitamin ad from one magazine in 1985, and from another magazine in 1987, wherein it already said, "ben tulfo a.k.a. 'benny tishiba', DJ, KYFM 91.5"...

    i also read many, many years ago that triggerman was also with EI before he moved to WLS-FM in 1981 (if i remember one of my conversations with master T about the history of LS correctly)...

    SS,

    Thanks for the heads-up on The Triggerman. Yes, prior to DWLS-FM, Milo (his nick) used to work for XB-FM (when it was called Magic Disco 102 in the late 70's) and later with EI-FM in the early 80's before moving into LS-FM. Ben Tulfo was called Brother Ben if I'm not mistaken at EI although he became known as Ben Tishiba later on.

    Master T (Tito) used to be my neighbor in Sta. Mesa Heights, Quezon City back then. We actually lived in the same street, and if I'm not mistaken, studied in the same high school where I came from. Other personalities who came from my school were Eric Caine, George Boone, Ken Fortun among others...

    I loved the radio scene back then. DJ's became DJ's because they were talented and knew their music. There are still some today who can fit the bill but a lot of radio stations nowadays focus too much on looks and crass commercialism which takes away the beauty of programming. I still try to listen though, but has given up hope that everything can go back to what used to be called the golden years of Philippine radio.

    The 70's actually jumpstarted things and apexed in the 80's. Back in the 70's, the more popular ones were RT, LS, XB, and LM (Super Tunog Pinoy). Those rating highly were LL (Mellow Touch), MB (now Love Radio), and FM 92.3 (MRS). These three consistently were the top rating stations for almost a decade with LL ruling the fort.

    XB (pre-New Wave days) was an innovator of sorts since they were playing disco tracks which were the hottest tunes back in the 70's. You can't go wrong with that, especially since the disco scene was active back then, with Stargazer (Silahis Hotel's discotheque) as the place to be seen. RT was consistently playing AT 40 hits plus some as well, from Elton John to Sanford & Townsend to Kenny Loggins. WK was also building a name for itself as Metro Manila's "Jazz Authority" with the likes of Bambi Fonacier, Brother Wayne, Ed Picson, D*ck Ildefonso, Jing Magsaysay among others.

    @dennis: ako naman, yung mga naabutan kong drama sa radyo--mga '90s na 'to--include "matud nila", "naku, ang buhay nga naman!", "benzar" (sana tama spelling ko nito), tsaka siyempre, yung kay tiya dely...although 'di rin ako sobrang nakikinig...

    @jay: wow...alam mo, because of the fact that i was born in '84, nagkamalay-tao na pagdating sa radyo at around 3 or 4 years old, and began to appreciate radio enough for me to remember almost everything i had heard starting at around 10 years old, 'di ko na masyadong naabutan--as an avid listener, at least--yung "golden years" na yan in radio-landia...medyo nakakapanghinayang tuloy, especially considering the big difference, in particular, between FM radio back in the '70s and '80s to FM radio today...

    being part of LS-FM's aircheck 4 years ago (i was with the station until the very last sunday before the much-ballyhooed change to barangay LS), i used to hang out a lot during sir tito's timeslot (7-9pm pa siya noon), and i was very much amused with the stories he would tell off-air about his years on radio, especially in the '70s and '80s...panay nga tanong ko sa kanya (pati kay sir jim, whose show i also frequented) noon...ahh, good times, good times! haha...

    that reminds me...i used to have this tape about 5 years or so ago--supposedly from one of my aunts--at our old las pinas house...it contained airchecks from two stations back in 1980: a really short one probably from LS (because, although the WLS-FM calls weren't mentioned, the DJ--didn't get the name as well--said "channel 97", which was, i found out earlier, how LS labeled its frequency then), and the rest of the tape, airchecks from DWFM 92.3...i had fun listening to it again and again...to the point that i became a bit familiar with the song "fantasy" (which was an MRS that time the aircheck was recorded), as well as the 1980 lifebuoy soap jingle ("lifebuoy cares for everybody, cares for you all day!")--lifebuoy was the sponsor for the MRS segment that time...too bad, when we moved out of las pinas, the tape was nowhere to be found anymore! sayang...

    and oh, yeah...daniel na lang (itawag mo sa 'kin), man! :D
  • sirloin_steaksirloin_steak Jump brother, jump brother! PExer
    here's another one--a jingle, this time, from about 10 years (or a little less) ago--to get us started some more...

    "all the hit music, all the hit grooves
    all the right people, all the right moves
    the power to speak to your own generation
    you're listening to the first creative pop station...
    go with the one (monster radio)...RX 93.1!"

    some few years after this jingle first played on air (i know it isn't being used by the station anymore), i found out that it was The CompanY who sang this...the vocal group included this in their anniversary compilation album (which also included, among others, their 96.3 wrock "celebrity minutes" interview, and their version of the first GMA "kapuso" jingle)...

    and speaking of RX...from about the same time they first aired the jingle above...anyone remember kikoy, kikay and bodyguard? and the RX version of "my heart will go on" with a skit (in between stanzas) from kikoy and kikay as jack and rose and ending with "kumapit ka sa baba ni celine dion!"? :D

    sirloin steak - i still perfectly remember the rx tunes of before. nami-miss ko ren yung monster's riot which used to be on a sunday - monday schedule. i avoided rx after mgmt (or some smart brained person) decided to make sundays a hip-hop day instead of the usual 70's - late 90's stuff.

    - naalala ko pa yung show bob & emy garron (i'm not that sure with the proper names) who had a talk show sa am band then a live show (ata) over at channel 9. sumali na ren ako sa discussion nila dati at ginamit ko pa yung cellphone namin sa bahay (no thanks to pldt backlog that time). it was a good show and mala oprah dating ng mga advice ng mag-asawa na yun (minus food advice)

    - "are you lonesome tonight" na naririnig ko pag hating-gabi over at the am band. i'm not sure kung anong station ang nag host ng show na yun. pero i did enjoy the show, it's callers, the letter senders, plus the creative nicknames).

    - the old battle of eheads & rivermaya nung pasikat pa lang sila. i think "it's with a smile vs. himala" that time. ls did a pretty good job with that one (and di ko pa pinag-isipan na baduy yung ls that time). is it lunch time that the results of listener votes would be tallied?

    is it lunch time that the results of listener votes would be tallied?

    that's right, man...the legendary "top 20 at 12" countdown...this was, definitely, the triggerman's trademark show on LS for God-knows-how-many years until the ill-fated reformat to "barangay LS forever!"...
