In 100 Words: Papa Jack (or Papa J) Joins 106.7 Energy FM

From Love to Energy.

After taking a break of over two months, the DJ formerly known as Papa Jack (John Gemperle in real life) officially announced his comeback on Facebook with a simple photo. In it came news that he will join 106.7 Energy FM as Papa J.

It can be recalled that John unexpectedly resigned from 90.7 Love Radio last December without citing a reason behind it. Following his resignation, John’s vacated timeslot was given to newcomer Lloyd Cafe Cadena (formerly of 93.9 iFM).

Papa J’s debut on 106.7 Energy FM will be on March 20. Still, despite his overwhelming popularity during his tenure at 90.7 Love Radio, it remains to be seen if he will help 106.7 Energy FM turn things around.

In 100 Words: Love Radio’s Replacement for Papa Jack

There is a new DJ who will run Papa Jack’s vacated slot.

90.7 Love Radio announced this week that former 93.9 iFM DJ Lloyd Cafe Cadena will take over the 9:00 p.m. timeslot in lieu of the departed Papa Jack. Following the announcement, LC made his Love Radio debut last night.

The arrival of LC to the 9:00 p.m. slot will be a huge test to Love Radio’s supremacy. With Papa Jack having turned the station’s 9:00 p.m. slot into must-listen radio, it will be up to LC to fill in those shoes and maintain these expectations.

LC may never replicate Papa Jack’s style, but one can only hope that he can be just as good as the popular DJ he replaces. Good luck.

CALM AFTER THE STORM

After the disastrous re-formats of 103.5 K-Lite (from AC on its launch last July 22, 2013 to CHR last April 21, 2014 to Adult Hits last August 18, 2014 (as a desperate attempt to compete against Retro 105.9 DCG-FM and 107.5 Wish FM) before settling in to the AC format last November 24, 2014), it seems that the listeners of 103.5 K-Lite have something to cheer on this year. A year after settling on the Adult Contemporary format, K-Lite was ranked #6 on Metro Manila FM Ratings, based on AC Nielsen…
