Stressful day

It was a stressful day for me.

I had a rigorous hearing with the board members of the Radio Research Council, and Chris "Rock" Daughtry of North Carolina was ousted from American idol.

Radio Research Council

The hearing with the board of the Radio Research Council (RRC) pertains to the recent decision of the review and adjudication board to delete radio station DYEM-FM from the results of the 2006 survey.

Radio station DYEM-FM was built by my father. Igt has been on air for the last 25 years in Dumagfuete City. It was the pioneer FM station in the province of Negros Oriental.

The deletion of the station from the survey came after it allegedly violated survey rules.

I of course appealed this decision to the board of directors.

Although the course of action has already been decided, the die has been cast, I still went to the RRC board as a gesture of good faith.
This is an interesting case.

Chris Rock bids American idol goodbye

We have been following the American idol competition. I just learned that 26-year old Chris "Rock" Daughtry was given the pink slip.

It is quite ironic because Chris Daughtry has portrayed an image of a rock and roll star. And for this week, they were singing the songs of the king of rock and roll.

I was expecting Chris "Rock" Daughtry would have breezed through this four-cornered contest as rock and roll would have placed in his element.

Nevertheless, Chris is "made" as a rock star.

Left behind fo vie for this year's american idol are Taylor Hicks, Elliot Yamin and Kathrine McPhee.
