meet my brother, howlin’ dave. pinoy rock pioneer, original rockjock and NU 107 lifetime awardee. a lot of musicians and artists in the philippines owe their fame to him. he has gone through a lot and now he’s back on the air.
catch howlin’ dave at NU 107 every sunday, 5 to 6 PM. ang pangalan ng show niya ay “Tapsi Rock”. it’s the best rock show in manila. i’m saying this not because he’s my brother. he just puts a lot of intelligence and class in his radio program. i know. i’ve looked up to him ever since i was a small uncircumcised boy.
pag tumawag kayo sa station to make requests, sabihin ninyo nanggaling kayo rito. he’ll get a big kick out of it.
wow..pamilyang talentado pala kayu bossing…indi na pala ako WP unkel…blosgpot na ako…
i’ve never heard of your brother. are you sure he is an icon? you’re being too biased with your idea of the rock legends. tsk.tsk.tsk.
Olrayt!! yeah active na active ako nung kinoconceptualize palang yung TAPSI ROCK ayus!! sige tatawag ulit ako NU. Astig! salamat sir Batjay
nung nandun ako sa daport nung april 14 napansin ko siya after the book launch.i saw him calling a cab sa harap ng fully booked. i approached him by calling his name.binati naman niya ako. i just wondered kung bakit hindi kasama ni unkyel batjay si howlin dave pag uwi.
ill try to tune in to him, kasi usually sunday im on my way to lucena na.. at olats dun, di abot ang signal ng mga radio stations, wala naman kaming net connection sa bahay, kaya di rin makapakinig online 😀
pero astig to daddy! 😛 may tito pala akong talented 😀 heheheh
tito na talented? hehehe. di mo lang alam.
kasama ng mommy ko si dante sa launch. mayroon silang sariling service. in fact, nagkita kita kami for dinner afterwards. baka para sa kaibigan niya ang cab.
hey john lloy. sige pag tawag mo, samahan mo ng kamusta galing sa akin.
z – BWAHAHA! you’re funny in an anonymous way.
oo, ako pinaka walang talent sa pamilya namin.
great that he’s back on the airwaves.
nawala kasi siya bigla dun sa dating station eh.
hinahanap namin ng utol ko kung san na siya napunta.
finally maririnig ulit ang “booming boses” niya na galing pa ata sa ilalim ng lupa!
TAPSI ROCKan na!
parang kabute kasi minsan si howlin’ dave. pero enjoy naman pag on the air siya dahil walang katulad.
is he the father of basia?
basia calls him dad.
Please extend my congratulations to your dear bro, Jay! I’ve loved listening to his programs since I was in elementary school. Glad to know that he’s got a new one again. Loved his cool voice and demeanor on the air. The lifetime award is certainly more than deserved.
Welcome back to the US! Ngayon lang ako nakapost because I’ve been tied up with stuff. Salamat sa dedication sa libro na binili para sa akin. Hindi ko pa nga lang nababasa. 🙂 (Sabay kindat na rin.)
salamat. sige makakarating.
pag nabasa mo yung dedication sa libro, baka hindi ka matawa. hehehe.
it was a typical pinoy rock sunday on rj ur ,dante was at his usual intellectual yet hippy approach when an alternate jock suddenly announce on the air that howlin dave blood pressure have skyrocketed so he went home and never to return again . i guess there is really a big issue out of it coz the next sunday a new set of jocks is anchoring the legendary program ,end of the story.pinoy rock with out the living legend howlin dave as anchor is quite difficult to enjoy and comprehend its relevance to the present times. he is one of a kind rock jock who ate and embrace pinoy rock as his bread and butter in life. you cant put a talentad and hippy guy down that is why nu 107 welcome his presence with much gusto.more power to dante in his new show tapsi rock
AMEN, tony. ang importante, may bagong show si howlin’ dave.
pare congrats nga pala sa book launching mo ,sayang i was in an out of town job kya di tayo nkaatend , saan bookstore ba pwede ma kaiskor ng bago mong libro este masterpiece.
dami na bossing. depende kung nasaan ka:
wow! “howlin’ dave”… I wonder anong year sya nag-start sa NU 107…
fan kasi ako ng NU 107 in the 80’s-90’s. my favorite DJ’s were major tom and chris cruise (ayan, buking tuloy edad ko!) lol I also used to be a fan of BM 105 and one of their DJ’s became a “friend” (Tasmanian Devil), I wonder where he is now… inutangan kasi ako (no kidding). ang loko, tinakbuhan ako! 😦
btw, congratulations sa bago mong book!!! galing mo naman!!;-)
howlin’ dave started last month but he’s been a jock ever since the early 70s.
estudyante/actor ko si basia sa theatre before, tama nga ‘yung naalala ko na father nya si howlin dave. nasan na si basia? maraming salamat.
unkyel, mukang hindi kayo nagkalayo ng age. bata pa siguro sya when he started being a radio jock.
I just heard the news on NU…my condolences to you and your family.
Pare is howlin dave the one? what a great loss to pinoy rock if it is true?
