If you are a true child of the 1990s than you know that 4:30 in the afternoon meant having to say “Esmyuskee!” and “Nge!” ABS-CBN decided that a gag show with kids and teens was just the thing to liven up the afternoon with Johnny “Mr. M.” Manahan in charge. The resulting show—and the talent pool it produced—changed Philippine show biz forever and is still very evident today.
After “Super Random,” a new Inquirer podcast powered by PumaPodcast, explored the decadelong airtime life of GMA-7’s “That’s Entertainment,” the podcast’s second episode “Super Random: Ano ang ‘Ang TV?’” chronicles the next great evolution in entertainment showcases for younger talent. Join host Ruel S. De Vera as he quizzes Dr. Wendell Capili, talent manager Noel Ferrer and original cast member Roselle Nava-Tan about the show’s run from 1992-1997. “Super Random” episode 2 is available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Anchor.
