So who are they? Let me start with the one seated inside the booth by the door of Pinoy Radio studio located at Bathurst and Wilson in Toronto, Mr. Joey Abrenilla. A native from Butuan City, Philippines and is a known youth leader in OLA and his community in Toronto. He did a stint as a candidate for the Toronto Catholic District School Board. His youthful status may have deterred his seat as an elected member. He is by all measure a politician. He has a sunny character and all the experiences he gained from trying at an election is for me an indication it was merely a kind of initiation he needs to hurdle to be ready for the next, if he decides so. “Joey A-pol” is his radio name as host of ‘Kuya Kuys’. You need to sit inside the studio to see him fire up his opening lines. It’s witty and funny.

On the other side of the booth is Erick Zonio, who equally energized the tone of the show as he let out sweet and sexy narratives for the show’s listeners. Erick Zonio, radio named “Erick Adobo” as a commercial real estate data coordinator.  He said he occasionally works as a fashion model which is obvious on his looks. There is that sincere smile on his face all the time.

I was asked to sit in before an informal interview so I can get the zest of what the’ Kuya Kuys’ Radio Show is all about. Some shows are unintentionally boring but this one is quite an exception.  For one, these are younger guys hosting the show who had the ability to throw jokes to their listeners which are not normally found in many radio shows especially in our culture where more mature men reign in broadcast media.

The show is drawn into five segments;
1.    BALITANG “K” SIKAT- It deal on trending topics, dissect it and input their opinions about the issue in a lighter mood.
2.    KUWENTO MO, E SHARE MO- Callers can call on this segment and talk their hearts out for Kuya Kuys on any topics the caller wants to share.
3.    KUWENTO NI KUYANG- It features short stories with moral lessons.
4.    KULITAN TAYO- Anything goes from tongue twisting to games, dugtungan ng kanta at iba pa.
5.    KAPWA KO LABS KO- This portion is allotted for guests appearances.
From these five segments on a two- hour- long radio show, the listeners have ample time to interact with ‘Joey A pol’ and ‘Erick Adobo’ on air. You are right, their names represent foods.

Life in Canada is always a rush. But Sundays are good days for Filipinos to calm their nerves and then try listening to Pinoy Radio and be a part of ‘Kuyakuys’ Radio Show. It is not just about listening to music on radio. It is also about getting on board with trending issues they tackle. They can also make you Sundays a little lighter. Check them out!
