geek is love is music

Gino Quillamor is 93.1 dj in “The Awesome Twosome Show” and it was my boyfriend who “introduced” me to Gino, first by asking me to tune in to Rx Monster starting 4pm, then by showing me his facebook page.

I wasn’t interested when he asked me to listen to a particular dj in a particular show of a particular FM station while I’m doing lakwatcha in Makati.

But when he showed me his profile pic, wow, that was drool worthy bit.

He’s as gwapo as his voice. When I was listening to their show, yeah, there’s no depth in their conversation, but what the hell, it’s not an intellectual seminar I was listening to. Just a bunch of young adults making sense of the music of our time, while talking about Facebook, Twitter, games, pop culture and everything that makes sense to an ordinary twentysomething of today. Even heartaches hey!

Then I started reading his blog (boyfriend: “you got crush on him! me: but it’s your fault LOL). Interesting guy. His geekery and emotionality aren’t really a match to his pa-pogi pic. I mean, how can he have time to make himself vain, play games, blog about techiegeek stuff, and be hopeless romantic on top of his dj career, all at the same time? Rock and roll!

While I was listening to Rx one night last week, the boyfriend said that NU is bidding farewell.

I have no sentiments in this one. I used to be an fm radio listener. One of my favorites was the one before 93.9 or something became ifm (forgot the name! it’s in the 90s). Then they stopped doing business and I lost interest in listening to the radio. Other stations’ music was simply not my music.

That was the first time I first experienced a radio station close. With last songs, auctioned properties, the national anthem, and dead signal. It’s sad.

So I understand how OA and emo some people reacted when NU said goodbye. It’s the music of their soul that stopped playing. And after that, black hole.

Even if the Internet evolves to Web 10.0 I know the radio will stay. The world is full of lonely people walking together or riding the bus together,  but with FM or AM stations, we get a musical companion who plays our requests and talks about those things that we want to talk about with someone, if only we have someone to talk to all the time.

So now, I’m listening again to the radio. (insert here The Corrs’ Radio). WOw, I  miss the MTV days when Im home watching all day! It’s a little embarrassing, though, that it took a cute dj to hook me back to plugging something in my ears while tapping my feet.

Poging geek na may magandang speaking voice and likes music… Have I died and gone to heaven? Is he a god?! Grabe ‘te, huminto ang mundo ko nung nakita ko ang pic niya sa FB updates mo. At huminto ulit mundo ko nung makita ko siya sa blog mo. And nasa office ako. Wag ganun.
