JT Benz, radio talent at dyAB 1512 and long-time acquaintance (he was my uncle’s classmate in college) told me that if I would really want to leave a legacy at dyAB apart from the fleeting stories that I make, I should try to innovate something.
He cited that he introduced the electronic newsroom of dyAB using WikiHost.
True enough, after that conversation, our friend Johanna Gelicame got so confused as to what phone to pick up as both phones inside the news desk were ringing. She was almost aghast at the sight of two phones ringing to the point that she almost freaked out.
Juve Villar, the news desk man assigned that time, could not help but laugh. Well, thanks to his initiative, he invented a system for signaling the anchors to turn on the switches for phone patches. Before we devised these, we just used hand signals like the showing of one finger to signal that there is a caller on line 1 and five fingers on line 5.
