The Morning Rush is a weekday morning radio show of Monster Radio RX 93.1 and is hosted by Chico Garcia and Delamar.
The show has a cult following of listeners, who call themselves “Rushers”. Rushers would usually tune in to the show while on their way to work or school. The show was first aired on Monster Radio in 1996 and was moved to 93.9 KCFM in 1998, and then went back to Monster Radio in 2002.
It has been twelve years since Chico and Del started their program. But it wasn’t until they returned to RX that I started listening to them. Sure I’ve heard a lot about them back then, seen their tv guestings singing and promoting their album, capturing glimpse of their own tv program, and even stumbling upon a comic strip involving their show. They got famous and big, all because of the hit radio show. At that time, I was not much of a radio fan, or should I say RX fan (a rabid RX fan, as a friend coined it) that’s why I didn’t get to listen or experience what the big fuss was about.
I started listening to RX year 1999 and the Dynamic Duo went back year 2002. I actually was not that positive about their comeback, but still I woke up early just to listen to them(it was Chico’s birthday that day). At first, I still am not getting it. But when I started listening on a regular basis, I finally discovered why they were called The Legends. I became, yes, a fan! They’re seriously and hilariously funny, spontaneous, and crazy! Words may not suffice on how I like them, but indeed they are worthy of the term legends, being the first to set the trend on having tandems on radio shows.
During my days off, I make it a point to listen to their show. It’s so addicting! No wonder legions of people have been bitten by the Rush bug. And don’t fret if you missed an episode, there’s a site where you can listen to their show since 2006. Thanks to Blue Ritz, for meeting the alarmingly increasing demand for the cure for C&D syndrome.
And now that they are celebrating the show’s 12th year, I just want to thank teacher Chico and teacher Delamar for making our mornings more special, putting smile on our faces on a seemingly dry day, and for touching and influencing our lives in a sleazy way, I mean positive way. Even if I’ve only been listening for 6 years, I’m glad and I’m proud that you both are part of that six fruitful and fun years! Here’s to more and more years of fun, laughter and craziness! CONGRATULATIONS! 😉
