Pinoy Talk in the UK

Do you remember the song 'Ikaw lang ang Mamahalin' by Joey Albert? I do remember that song. It was one of my favourites when I was in my early 20's. In fact, it still is my favourite now. I think I even stopped listening to new music when I reached 25. Most of the Filipino songs that I appreciate are songs of Joey Albert, Kuh Ledesma, Apo Hiking Society...okay, okay, let's go further down - Hagibis, Didith Reyes, Claire Delafuente, and many others that maybe I cannot remember at the moment - most probably due to my brain shrinking because of ageing, hihihihihi. Anyway, last week I went down memory lane listening to the songs of some of these artists - yes, here in England, yes on the radio and yes again, live! I find it surprising and exciting that halfway across the globe, there is - suddenly - a Filipino Radio Talk Show where I am! So, today, I would like to share with you this new frenzy in my Norfolk life. The show is called 'Usapang Pinoy' (Pinoy Talk). If you want to listen to last Saturday's show, please click here. Usapang Pinoy is aired on 96.9 FM in Norfolk, England. It is aired at 3pm over here in the UK, it is aired at 11pm in the Philippines and Western Australia, 10am in the East Coast and 7am in the West Coast (USA), and at 4pm in Western Europe. The presenter is Dr Joy Barredo. Joy is someone with an interesting personality, very bubbly and articulate. What's more exciting is that I will be guesting in her show on Saturday, 10 November 2007 (which, incidentally, is my brother's birthday - Happy Birthday, Let!). So for an hour, I will re-living my life as a radio presenter...and in England!!! Woo-hoo!!!! Thank you very much, Joy!!! If you wish to know more about Dr Joy Barredo, here are the links to her websites: The Goddess In You Your Love Coach

Hi Len! Thanks for advertising the show. Unfortunately, we won't be sharing the mic this Saturday. Another time then perhaps?

Look after yourself!
