During the Spanish times, when a mother wanted her children to stop crying at night, she usually threatened them with the "quintos."
FULL STORY

OUR COVER

Name: THEDA PALABRICA
Profession: On-Air Personality
Company: DYIC 95One IC FM
Address: Jaro, Iloilo City
Zodiac Sign: Gemini
School: Central Philippine University
Course: Bachelor of Arts Major in Masscommunication

Hobbies: Chatting in the Internet, texting and listening to music.

Favorite mode of dressing: Anything that would be comfortable to wear. For me, it is not about how you dress up. One's personality is what counts. One has to be beautiful inside and that beauty will reflect outside.

Favorite color: Colors that are appealing for me are pastels. Just like "powder blue" for it resembles coolness. Sometimes I also get attracted to black as it exudes elegance.

Favorite hang-out: Most of the time, I usually stay at the station and research for some cool songs of 95one IC FM (don't I deserve a treat for that? Ha ha ha) and when I've got nothing to do, tease my fellow jocks. Seriously, if I were to choose a cool place to hang out, it would be the beach. It has fresh air, the ambiance is relaxing and cool and soothes my mood. It makes me feel happy.

Favorite music: My co-jocks do have their own choices of music. I'd settle for jazz. It really captivates my mood. I love to hear sounds of Patti Austin's "Say You Love Me," Spandau Ballet's "True," Mike Francis' "Let Me In," El De Barge's "Time Will Reveal" and Anita Baker's "Sweet Love."

Favorite artist (s): David Benoit is good for crossovers. I also love to hear Jim Brickman's composition.

Favorite book: I'm not really picky when it comes to books. Anything that would increase my knowledge would do. When it comes to novels, I like Sydney Sheldon and Stephen King. For fashion magazines, I like Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Dolly and Metro. "What's in" in Metro updates me with the latest these days.

Future plans: I have lots of plans in mind, but you see, the future is not ours to hold. I firmly believe that with my determination and strong character, I would become a better person. These would serve as my means for success. I hope someday that I will let God do the planning.

Perks of my career: For me it's not about money. I am able to impart music to listeners, to be able to share this, striving to give them the best that I can and enhance my capacity as a disc jockey satisfies me.

Most embarrassing moment at work: I have a lot of bloopers to tell. But there's one that wouldn't go away ...

After two months of working at the station, I started to love my job especially my slot. There was a time when we started to go on a 3-minute segment (of 30 minutes fast and 30 minutes slow music). My slot called for slow music. It just so happens that I had no playlist at that time, and I was running out of time. I immediately grabbed the first CD that I could find. Guess what I played on air ... "Stop right now .. thank you very much...!" It was the Spice Girls! After that our PD called up and told me to "stop" and change my music. What an awarding ceremony I received then. But you know, we are just humans born to commit mistakes. That's how I learned ha ha ha.
