Let me just say that it is a singular honor for my blog and a milestone indeed that the great Mo Twister would choose this venue to give us the scoop on Wednesday’s much anticipated edition of Forbidden Questions.

Mo posted a comment on my blog about last Thursday’s show with Adel Tamano and I quote verbatim:

“just wanted to keep you guys updated on the happenings. today on the show, i announced that we might bring forbidden questions out of the grave one time just for ol’ time sake. so, im going to agree to do it this wed. however, this segment has gotten us into deep trouble in the past, and in the near future (likely the end of this month) i will begin serving the latter portion of a suspension i was given cuz of the variety of things that have been said during forbidden question. but no worries, i will take the time to go to italy and watch coldplay (this is your cue to get jealous).

i want to keep my promise so i contacted a celebrity to guest on forbidden questions this wed. il give you clues on who it is but i cant say it cuz i people found out they will try to contact that celeb an talk them out of it…thats how it used to be.

heres the clue: SHE was an ex of aga muhlach.

Mo”

Whilst the Forbidden Questions segment of the Good Times show is such a favorite of mine and it may have been the reason why the Good times show became so famous or infamous (depending on whom you ask), if the price to pay for our indulgence is the suspension of Professor Mo then I’d rather we make do without it.

But as my man Mo says, he’s bringing it back for an encore… Just one last time for old times sake…

[CANNED APPLAUSE]

On the positive side, Mo gets to go on vacation in Italy to watch Coldplay in concert… Damn, we’re not jealous Mo, we’re envious, hahaha… Seriously, have fun in Italy and don’t forget to take pics of the beautiful Italian scenery and more importantly the bellissimas… 🙂

Now on to the Forbidden Questions… Who do you think is the guest on Wednesday’s edition of Forbidden Questions? Despite the clue, it’s still anybody’s guess… Aga’s been linked to so many women in the past… Hmmm, my guess is Janice de Belen… What about you? Please leave your guesses below… Let’s have a contest and the winner gets a prize consisting of two front row tickets to the Alicia Keys concert courtesy of Mo Twister… 🙂

Let the guessing game begin! 🙂

Till then, I’m out of here…

Good times!

10 things I love about The Good Times show!

I’ve been a long time fan of the  show ever since it started airing with the original trio of Mo, Mojo and Andi9 around late 2005 or early 2006 (I forget). As Mo says in radiospeak, “First time, long time”… Meaning a first time caller but a long time listener… Well in my case, first time blogger but a long time listener…

I’ve decided to list down my top ten reasons why I love the show so much and see if you agree…

  1. Mo Twister – his original and oft times controversial take on various topics makes for truly entertaining radio. His candor is refreshing and is the radio equivalent of a stiff middle finger to all those boneheads who love to bash him…
  2. Grace Lee’s twins – enough said
  3. Mojo Jojo – not just the token gay guy on this show, his on air flirting with the various “cute boys” gives me the creeps but is nonetheless entertaining and his unabashed gayness is a perfect foil for Mohan. Talk about the proverbial old married couple…
  4. Little Man Guile – this young man has a serious future in broadcasting, but get your wang cut already, Miguel, for Pete’s sake… “snip, snip”…
  5. The PRIZES – this show gives away insane prizes, from stays at luxury hotel suites, trips, concert tickets, free gas, laptops, some pretty serious dough and now a new car (albeit a Chery QQ), but still, who’s complaining? It has 4 wheels and an engine!
  6. The GAMES – this show runs the gamut of games, from funny to downright stupid games… Games like the dearly departed FQ (Forbidden Questions), ass kissing games (Yabang Mo), the lame Categories game and my personal favorite the Pornstar game!
  7. The TALK – let’s face it, Good times is basically a talk show and the show lives or dies by the conversation and ideas thrown around on the show… This is what keeps the listeners coming back!
  8. The MUSIC – yeah, I know, I know, what music? Mo only plays three songs but those three songs are damned good! Coldplay anyone?
  9. The CALLERS – from singing divas to drunken retards to doctors to hot chicks, this show is like a magnet which attracts the best and the worst callers on Philippine radio!
  10. And last but not the least, MOHAN GUMATAY… Oh yeah, did I mention Mo?

I’d love to hear top reasons why you love the show too… Feel free to comment…
