Heard a Good One Lately?

Kahapon ang topic sa Hot Ten sa The Morning Rush nina Chico & Delamar (6-9AM, RX 93.1) ay “Hot Ten Best Insults at a Basketball Game.” My favorite was this:

The winning UST crowd was cheering, “We’re going to the finals! We’re going to the finals!” The Ateneans heckled, “Kung may jeep! Kung may jeep!”

Hindi talaga ako morning person pero natitiyempuhan ko pa rin madalas ang tail-end ng show at natatawa talaga ako sa conversations nila pero since radio, madalas nasa background lang sila ng buhay mo kaya hindi mo nari-realize kung gaano sila ka-importante pala sa’yo. I remember nu’ng lumipat sila sa KC nu’ng 90’s inabangan ko ang kanilang first show. Nu’ng biglaan silang naggu-goodbye nag-panic ako. At ‘di lang ako, ha. Tinawagan pa’ko ng headwriter: “Ano nangyayari? Bakit sila mawawala?” “’Di ko rin po alam, eh!”

Turns out magre-re-format pala ‘yung KC so natsugi sila. Nu’ng bumalik sila ulit sa RX, nakinig din ako. I gave a sigh of relief nu’n kasi may pag-asa pa’kong makasali sa kanilang live tea party (na I never bothered to join kasi mahihirapan lang akong gumising ng 6am at inisip ko na marami pa namang opportunity kaya laking pagsisisi ko nu’ng biglang naggu-goodbye na sila d’yan!) Sad to say, hindi pa sila ulit nagkaka-tea party.

The first time I texted an entry to the Hot Ten, Chico and Delamar not only rejected my “Worst Thing That Even Happened to You” they actually dissed it on air since ang tema nga ng mga entries mga freak accidents, ganyan, habang ang sa akin tungkol sa heartbreak. So sabi nila parang it is not at par daw. Buti na lang anonymous entry kung hindi double-whammy na shineyr mo na ang worst thing mo tapos sinabi pa nilang it’s nothing.

Pero I wasn’t discouraged. Once in a while kapag may naisip ako, nagse-send ako ng entry.

My first No. 1 entry was for “Best Celebrity Gossip” (a topic inspired by the Oprah-Michael Jackson interview that aired the night before). I sent the gossip “Na muntik kinain ng ahas ng Robinson’s si Alice Dixon pero nakatakas siya at tumakbo siya sa show ni Inday Badiday para magsumbong pero biglang nag-commercial break.”

There was also a time that Chico was teasing Del about her celebrity crush whom Del didn’t want revealed. But Chico hinted that he’s a Japanese-looking model. I immediately texted, “Si Kenji Marquez!” (Alam ko agad kasi crush ko rin ‘to! Weakness ko talaga ang chinito!) And then Chico said that people immediately texted and they gussed Del’s crush right! Eh, ang topic something like “Things to Tell a Holdaper So He Won’t Kill You” so ang aking No. 1 entry: FROM KENJI MARQUEZ: ‘Wag mo’kong patayin! Mabubiyuda si Del!” Siyempre, ang sabi lang ni Chico, “From THE NAME OF YOUR CRUSH…”

Nakakagulat nu’ng recently nag-celebrate sila ng kanilang 10th. Merong isang texter (actually ang official name naming mga fans ay Rushers) na nagkuwento na nu’ng una siyang nakinig umaakayt pa siya ng bubong para makakuha ng magandang reception tapos ngayon naririnig na niya ito over the internet kasi nasa abroad na siya. Well, wala akong ganu’ng kuwento pero gusto ko lang pasalamatan sina Chico at Delamara dahil sampung taon na nilang pinaliligaya ang umaga ko.
