I thought that there would be slim pickings today with the show missing our man Mo Twister who flew to Hong Kong this morning to interview singer-song writer, John Legend, but the two “girls” did a good job… Props to Grace Lee and Mojo Jojo… Now on to the show’s recap:

St. Scho girls

The booth was packed with St. Scholastica girls who were on tour of the various radio stations in Paragon Plaza and they provided a nice backdrop for the show today…

Nothing like a bunch of teenage girls to perk you up in the morning… πŸ™‚

Mojo’s superpower

Somehow the conversation went to fairies and superpowers and I had a good chuckle as Mojo said that if he ever had one, his superpower would be flower power… He could summon up flowers and make them grow on demand…

Imagine Mojo flitting around Metro Manila and making flowers sprout in all the pink urinals and the equally crimson elevated walkways of Metro Manila… He’ll be hired by Bayani Fernando for sure! πŸ™‚

The man who can’t be moved – The Script

There was a funny moment also when Grace said that Mojo had put on a lot of weight since their trip from Hong Kong with Mojo gorging on that yummy Chinese food with lots of MSG, hehe…

To steer the conversation away from fat jokes, he chose to play the song “The man who can’t be moved” by The Script… Now if that isn’t a fat song, I don’t know what is… πŸ™‚

Songs and Greetings

Speaking of songs, with Mojo manning the board, I counted two Madonna songs and a lot of dance music which Mo absolutely despises… That’s another indication that Mo’s not around, if you catch the show in mid-music, try listening to the songs, if it isn’t by Coldplay then Mo’s not around… πŸ™‚

The sneaky callers also took advantage of Mo’s absence by greeting their relatives, their friends, their ex’s, their pets, their imaginary friends, their mistresses and even Kokey… πŸ™‚

There was even on-air giving away of phone numbers by provincial callers… Mo would’ve killed the callers or texters who even suggested that, hehe…

Mean boss or mean co-workers

A caller tried to introduce a topic wherein he asked Mojo and Grace their preference of either having a mean boss or having mean co-workers… Both chose the latter option…

I would have to agree… But then again, your boss can make your life a living hell…

What about you guys? Your thoughts?

Don Francis prank

Regular caller Don Francis, tried to pull off a fast one by impersonating a man’s man on the show… You know the type, deep husky voice, with heavy breathing… Sort of like Brando Branganza before… Long time fans would know what the hell I’m talking about…Β  πŸ™‚

But Grace made him… I think she’s on hyper alert after being punked by Mo some weeks back, hehe…

Anyway, good try Don…

Listener visit contest

Another caller contributed to the show by suggesting that the trio hold a contest wherein they invite their respective fans to the show and the loser with the least number of fans showing up has to date whomever the winner wants… Imagine the possibilities!

Mojo was worried that he’d lose this one… I’d have to agree, hehe… Just judging from the results of the hilarious “Who knows Mojo Jojo?” segment… πŸ™‚

All in all it was a good show… Good job Mojo and Grace!

Next, I’ll blog about last night’s Good Times on Studio 23 show…

Till then, I’m out of here…

Good times!

  1. it’s kinda boring this time…

  2. I must admit I listen less passionaltely when the trio is incomplete, especially if it’s Mo. πŸ™‚

    “That’s another indication that Mo’s not around, if you catch the show in mid-music, try listening to the songs, if it isn’t by Coldplay then Mo’s not around…”
    -That’s what I do! I used to just like Coldplay but now I’m more into them cuz of Mo.

    Great job on the site, Benj. Your post is up and it’s barely 10. love it!!!

  3. FLOWER POWER!

    Ew!
    joke only mojo jojo

    Good Times!

  4. I listened to the show for awhile but I just can’t stand Mojo’s preference of music. Well, the house songs are ok but the girly/gay songs? NAH!

    If the trio is incomplete, whether Mojo or Grace aren’t around, it’s a totally different show. Especially if our main man Mo is out.

    Till then, good times!

  5. I think it was not so bad today. In fact, considering the situation (No Mo Twister) I think this is one of the best episodes with only Mojo and Grace manning the fort (aside for the choice of music of course). I tried calling in but heck! the phone lines are still burning up!

    On the A**hole boss or co-workers, I would prefer to have nice co-workers instead of bad ones. Because bosses tend to be… well… bossy, no matter how nice they are. And for most of them (bosses I mean)… they’re much like diapers… always on your a** and they’re always full of s**t!

  6. Haha, nice one Khalesh… I never thought of my bosses in that light… πŸ™‚

    Yeah, the show wasn’t bad actually… It’s just that Mo comes so prepared for the show and has such wide ranging topics that the show really has a good flow when he’s there…

    Anyway, Mojo and Grace did a good job today, I’ll have to give them that…

    Props!

  7. I’m giving some props to Mojo and Grace too! Mojo made my pre-birthday bluey day! I had fun listening to Mojo’s comments and all day today, my YM shouts “I heart Mojo!” =P

  8. Hi Chrissy,

    Advance Happy Birthday and thanks for dropping by my blog! Have a nice one! πŸ™‚

  9. So I just have to say that when I heard that Mo wasn’t there, I fell asleep. Involuntarily. Dunno why. Wanted to hit myself in the head while reading your blog though. The “flower-power” stuff would have made my morning waaaay better.

    The Man Who Can’t Be Moved by the Script is something that I have been listening to since I started following the band in MySpace months ago. Still not tired of it though. And it’s a damn sentimental song. πŸ™‚ Love the lyrics. Danny, the vocalist is too hot for words. And oh, they’re IRISH. πŸ™‚

    I’d rather have a mean boss and friendly co-workers. That way, we can gang up on him/her and even talk about how mean he/she is when he/she is not around.

    I still regret not listening this morning. 😦

  10. Heeey… Mojo Jojo won’t lose! πŸ™‚ I Love you Mojo! πŸ™‚

  11. OMO~ you should have mentioned the Kpop thing!

    LOL. big SUPER JUNIOR fan here. ;p

    looooove the show. πŸ™‚

  12. i really like often times the ideas of mo….
    i really love it…..
    hope you and anne will have some date soon…

  13. ver friends Says:
