Last January 15, 2017 (Monday), Kuya Daniel Razon introduced to the crowd the new Wish Bus which will station at Hollywood, USA
MANILA, Philippines – Wish 107.5 stays true to its commitment to be Filipino talent’s gateway to the world.
Through Wish FM’s innovations, foreigners were wowed by the singing prowess of OPM artists.
Wishclusive videos taken on the Pambansang Wish Bus continue to gain worldwide attention through the Wish Youtube channel.
It now has almost 2 million subscribers and over 800 million views.
And now, aiming to further promote Filipino talent, Wish FM is set to bring the Wishclusive performances abroad through the popular Wish Bus.
“At this point, I would just like to let you know that in these coming months, we are already preparing for another big leap and we have that already. We have traveled our Wish Bus from New York to Los Angeles. Now it’s already in Hollywood and waiting for the inauguration,” said Wish creator, Kuya Daniel Razon.
“After this Hollywood thing, we’re looking forward to having also our Wish Bus in Europe,” he added.
OPM artists were amazed at the concept of a traveling Wish bus.
“If halimbawa, magkaroon ng Wish Bus sa ibang bansa and then magf-fly sila ng mga OPM artists doon tapos iikot sa iba’t ibang bansa, magandang idea iyon. Kasi sobrang unique eh kahit iyong mga foreigner’s pag narinig nila yung… ‘What? Studio in a bus?’ Parang sobrang nacucurious sila tapos hindi pa puchu-puchu iyong quality. Kung gaano kaganda iyong quality sa regular na studio, kung hindi pa mas maganda parang pwede mo na silang i-compare. So nakakaproud na meron tayong nap-produce na ganun kaya sana matuloy yun,” said popular “soul supreme” singer, KZ Tandingan.
(If for example, there will be a Wish bus in other countries and they will fly OPM artists there and tour different countries. That’s a good idea because it’s so unique. Even foreigners, whenever they hear… ‘What? Studio in a bus?’ they seem so curious and the quality is very good.)
“Ang dami pong Filipino artists abroad that are just so great. Sa states pa lang po sobrang naguumapaw na din lahat ng talents ng Filipinos there and so to have Wish Bus go there so that they could help promote the OFWs or the Filipinos that are residing in different countries. It’s such a great opportunity and a great avenue once again that Wish has created,” said rising singer/song writer, Moira dela Torre.

“For us to be able to bring Wish to other countries and to reach our kababayans there and more, sobrang laking ano nun (it’s such a big deal). It’s an honor of course to be a part of this family and it’s so big for Wish. I’m only very excited, I’m looking forward for what else is in store for everybody kaya go. Congratulations po Kuya Daniel,” said stage actress and recording star Morissette Amon.

Wish 107.5, on its 3rd year, has been the talk of the town for its FM booth on the wheels, the Wish bus, which runs not only in Metro Manila, but also in various provinces, and will soon be replicated in the U.S. and in Europe.
Its Wishclusive videos have also been the craze of netizens, with reactors across the globe.
And, Wish also takes pride of launching the biggest online singing competition in the Philippines, Wishcovery.

So siguro ito narin iyong bunga. Swerte tayong lahat sa network natin because Kuya Daniel Razon, he embodies, iyong Mr. Public Service. So sa tingin ko dahil meron akong role model, meron akong mentor, nagiging madali narin to sort of, just try at least to, in our own little ways, to follow in his footsteps, in his advocacies,” said Thio.

PASIG CITY, Philippines — The defending champion PNP Responders survived the deadly game against the Malacañang-PSC Kamao on Sunday, January 28, 2018. Had they lost to the Kamao, the policemen will go home and take a vacation in the middle of UNTV Cup Season 6.
Good thing, the Responders relived their championship form and annihilated Kamao with a 19-point domination, 77-58.
Responders Assistant Coach Art Marquez aims to continue with their game plan of intensive practices, with eyes on defending the title.
“Talagang ganoon, mahirap. Pero nakukuha sa practice iyan. Basta bawal na mag-relax sa amin,” Marquez said.
(It’s hard but that’s how it is. We’ll achieve it through practice. We’re not allowed to relax now.)
Kamao Assistant Coach Raffy Gonzales, on the other hand, admits poor performance led to the loss.
“Nagkulang talaga kami sa offense namin. Kailangan naming paghandaan yung offense namin. Paghahandaan namin yung game namin sa susunod.”
(We really fell short in our offense. We need to prepare for our offense. We will prepare for our next game.)
Two-time MVP Olan “The Sniper” Omiping was named as the best player of the game with 23 pts, 7 rebs, 4 asts, 2 stls for the Responders while Eric Dela Cuesta produced only 14 points in leading the Kamao.
Meanwhile, the AFP Cavaliers defeated the PDEA Drug Busters in the first game of the tripleheader, 98-90.
With this win, the Cavaliers remains on the top spot with 9 wins and one loss as it awaits its opponent in the semi-final round with a twice-to-beat advantage.
Cavaliers Coach Sonny Manucat emphasized that there is no room for complacency in order to continue winning.
“Sabi ko sa kanila, hindi pa kailangang mag-relax, yung composure ng team dapat nandoon. Magagawa lang namin yun sa break [off-season]. So, actually wala kaming break. Bukas resume agad kami [ng practice] ,” Coach Manucat revealed.
(I said to them, “We must not relax now, our team composure must not diminish. We can only relax on our break [off-season].” So, actually we don’t have free time. Tomorrow, we will immediately resume our practice.)
The Drug Busters, on the other hand, despite failing to advance to the next round, is thankful for being able to join the league of public servants for the first time this season and looks forward to more seasons to come.
In the second game, the Senate Defenders rises to the fourth spot of the team standings after overpowering two-time champion Judiciary Magis in a neck-and-neck bout, 74-71.
Chester Tolomia and Warren Ybañez were both fouled out in the second half of the match to the advantage of the Defenders.
Senate Defenders Coach Mike Fermin said, “Ang game plan ko is, ang big three nila, Tolomia, Camaso , Ybañez, i-contain. So, we did a pretty decent job. Two-time defending champion iyan. Talagang lalaban iyan, pero we have to do our part.”
(My game plan is to contain their big three: Tolomia, Camaso , Ybañez. So, we did a pretty decent job. That’s a two-time defending champion. They are really ready to fight, but we have to do our part.)
Gary Sevilla who made 25 points, 3 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 assist and 1 block was hailed as the best player of the game.
This victory gives the Defenders a twice-to-beat advantage in this season’s quarter-final round.
Watch out for the Malacañang-PSC Kamao, PNP Responders, Senate Defenders, and the Judiciary Magis as they battle in the quarter-finals.
