I am talking of a different RUSH here…..
I am now 25 years of age, and I can proudly say that for the past 14 years (and counting!), RX 93.1 The Morning Rush duo: Chico and Delamar has been part of my morning routine.
I know, they usually receive feedbacks such as “I’ve been listening to your show since Grade three”, “you guys are already part of our family for the past 10 years…” and so on… and being part of the KBP Golden Dove Awardee for Best FM Station (RX Monster Radion 93.1 – 7 years now) and having won the Best Comedy Show last November 2010 (The Morning Rush), I am just so PROUD again, for my choice of station, my choice of morning show and my choice of DJ’s! Yehaaaah!
thanks to google for the pic!
Yes. It is indeed THE MORNING RUSH which I am talking about, the duo who invaded my/our (me and my mom’s) “universe” for more than a decade now. I am talking of years here, and for a fan, that is already a breakthrough.
I know, we all have our own favorites, and I have no intention of comparison here, I just would want to take this opportunity to thank the duo for their contribution in my life ever since. I was moved to write my gratitude after hearing the BIG Reveal last Friday. Goodness, the BIG Reveal already made headlines at the GMA NewsTv http://www.gmanews.tv/story/215015//chico-and-delamar-reveal-big-news-on-air that is how hyped the topic has been treated by all of us “rushers” (both active and silent), which has attracted the attention of the media already. Way to go for Chico, in “mystifying” the topic. Haha.
So before the day of the revelation, C&D slipped about having a big announcement around 9:00AM, Friday, March 11 2011. And as a fan, I am too anxious about what they will say, will they be saying good bye already? are they going to add another partner in their duo, making them threesome? and some other crazy-stuff flashed before my mind.
My Brewed Cup of Laughter every morning
So, as like those other rushers who listens on their way to work, there I was, with my earplugs on, enjoying another mysterious day with Chico and Del, and kept on laughing my head off (this usually happens whenever I listen) and so, I made up several words to describe the Morning Rush Fever:
- chicoadellusion: delusional approach to the duo, seeing them in corners, always wearing clown red noses, making you laugh without any reason at all (haha)
- morning rash – because of too much exposure to TMR (the Morning Rush), their effect has already been “radio-burnt”, physically visible to the non-rushers, because of too wide smile out of laughing their _ss off
- zingerzongwritervirus - because of Chico’s genius, all rushers are infected by this, singing several “hits” of his album out of the blue, and even rush to download his songs, and kept it playing on mp3′s and ipod’s (no anti-virus for this one)
-delavoiceaddiction – Delamar indeed do have a very beautiful and soothing voice. Every rusher will definitely agree with me.
- chicogastroenteritis – because of this guy’s craziness and alien invaded thoughts, rushers have no option but to laugh and guffaw, especially when he tries to outdo delamar with his magical-childhood
I usually listen to them each morning while inside the bus or inside the MRT, and I really do laugh out loud when they “snapped”. I don’t care about those who do not understand what is going on inside my “ear-paradise”, but they sure are missing a lot of fun!
I still have other ideas on mind, but I wanted to go back to the main purpose of this Thank You blog post, so, come 9:00AM while already seated at my office table, I am still listening to them, and when I heard the Big Reveal: Delamar shared to the whole world that she is indeed having a baby, and she made me cry (because of her way of explaining things, her wonderful insight about her baby, and just about love.. I felt the love enveloping her totality about the gift that she have right now…and it is just wonderful.)
link for their podcasts are here: http://cdtop10.blogspot.com/ (they have archives of each show here, wherein you can download and listen if you missed them, each show really can produce great laughters!) Especially when you are feeling off and low-key, they do me a great favor by looking at the bright side of the world, and when I am feeling perfect, they also do me great favor by sustaining my energy, feeling upbeat and ever so-sexy. As a fan, I can say that they are my radio friends, all of us rushers’ do feel that way, most of the listeners are fans way back years ago… they even have an EB often, and developed friendships throughout the years.
So there, congratulations Del! And, I, together with your other fans, are so proud of you. I personally would like to thank you guys for sharing your lives with us (in your own way). I am a silent rusher, but I am a rusher still, and is proud of being one. You guys are part of my life already, and your voices are like music to my ears every morning… Cheers to more years for Chico and Del!
Yes, Del - always pretty and Chico – great blog! Haha.
