DWLS FM DJ Papa Obet Signs Recording Contract with GMA Records
As radio personalities become more visible thanks to the rise of digital media and the new radio buzz word “visual radio”, they have also become a celebrity in their own right.
While this is nothing new as we had Chico and Delamar of RX 93.1 smashing the hit song “Let’s Talk About Love” more than 2 decades ago, radio DJs as recording artist is now more prevalent.
DJ Papa Obet of Barangay LS 97.1 DWLS of GMA Network just inked a recording deal with the company’s recording arm GMA Records.
As his launching single, Papa Obet will be releasing “Una Kong Pasko”, a holiday tune to go on the air starting November 11, 2017.
On his Instagram, the Barangay radio personality revealed he penned and arranged the music for the song. And yes, he also did the vocals.
Papa Obet handles the Talk To Papa radio show on DWLS FM. But his road to stardom started when he auditioned for Protege, a talent search on GMA Network last 2011.
During an interview, he said that he will still remain as a Barangay LS radio host.

Barangay Love Stories is one of the most listened to programs now on the radio. DJ Papa Dudut is currently the production editor, that is why you can hear quality of the presentation.
Not just in Metro Manila, but in the entire archipelago of the Republic of the Philippines, as FM stations under Regional GMA Network are syndicating the program.
Papa Dudut is heading the program as the master story teller. Basically, the format is the same as the old school love letter reading on AM Radio.
But unlike the traditional format, Papa Dudut presents it in a more contemporary way.

GMA Network’s flagship FM station DWLS FM 97.1 sports a new strapline “Tugstugan Na” in response to tightening competition among local “masa” (Hot AC) stations in Metro Manila, Philippines.

This new branding hopes to further reinforce DWLS’ commitment to be the leading FM radio choice of Metro Manila listeners. In an interview via 24 Oras earlier tonight, the DJs of the station expressed that the new branding will bring in more fun and music entertainment while retaining its talk-based programs like Barangay Love Story.
With the new slogan “Tugstugan Na!”, is the station now leaning to a more rhythmic programming? The catchphrase is a play of the terms “tugtugan na” (it’s soundtripping time!) and “tugs”, a slang coined after the bass or pounding sound of dance music (tugs tugs tugs).
