Yesterday, I received an email from an MCA RECORDS representative regarding this new PHILIPPINE release 2-CD compilation package entitled "FRIDAY MADNESS: BEST OF 80s" that included a AD text and an mp3 promo. YUP!! The CD title was taken from MAGIC 89.9 RETRO RADIO PROGRAM every FRIDAY entitled "FRIDAY MAGIC MADNESS" which officially began in the mid-90s and up to now It's still wild and crazy on MANILA's FM DIALS. Well, this is the REAL THING and not an imaginary sort of thing so I decided to make a blogpost out of it. Of course, It's about the 80s which is my favorite decade so here it goes. I'll post the entire text from the PROMO AD which was sent by MCA RECORDS. Btw, this is not a paid advertisement guys. It's for the LOVE OF SHARING.

I'll present you first the PROMO VOICE FILE so get ready to travel again back to the 80s.


Time to tease your hair, put on your acid washed jeans, and wear neon clothing. THE 80s ARE BACK!!! Magic 89.9 and MCA Music present - FRIDAY MADNESS, the album. Featuring the best music from the 80s On 2 CDs.

The 80s were dominated by the widespread use of synthesizers and keyboards. In the United States, MTV was launched and music videos began to have a huge effect on the record industry. Pop artists such as Duran Duran, Tears For Fears, Wham!, and Michael Ja
ckson mastered the format and helped turned this new product into a profitable business.

The 80’s saw a time when the charts, MTV and Arena venues were overloaded with big hair, load guitars and people that should really know better. This retrospective release takes you back to that time to bask in the glory of a bygone period when men could look like women and no one knew the damage we were causing to the ozone layer with our excessive usage levels of aerosol hairspray cans.

Catch the launch of FRIDAY MADNESS – The album
on August 28, 9PM E’s Bar, Edsa Shangri-La

The event also features Pinoy Band TRUE FAITH(got their band name from a NEW ORDER Song) and of course MAGIC 89.9's very own DJ JON TUPAZ. Btw, my little blog "The Doctor Is In" will feature DJ JON TUPAZ in the near future so do STAY TUNE for that guys. Of course we will also feature DJ JON TUPAZ' Legendary Mobile PSYCHODECO and even his very own 80s and NEW WAVE mixes here in my little blog. Hmmmp!! I think that's really something to look forward to. THANKS to the TUPAZ family namely DJ JON and MISS PEACHY.

HEY DOC! My husband and I were listening to you last night 8April2011 and heard your swing mix -- but we couldn't figure out the titles of the songs. Would you have a CD of that? But for now, could you give us a listing of those songs you played?

Hi FAN in KATIPUNAN!! I'm sorry but I'm not a DJ. Maybe you are referring to DJ Jon Tupaz. I was not able to tuned in to his mix. THANKS for dropping by!! Do come back soon.
