Andy Sal is the newest radio rookie in town - even though some may say he doesn’t look the part.

Armed with plenty of spunk, relentless enthusiasm, and Rico J Puno-like bravado, Andy is determined to spice up your weekend mornings by playing throwback hits from the 70s and 80s. 

Apart from being a radio jock newbie, he is also a budding shawarma hunter, a vacation leave warrior, and an amateur photographer - for the ‘gram, of course. When not on-air, you might also find him exploring and taking photos of hidden gems in the UAE’s off-the-beaten paths.

Andy Sal is the newest companion to your morning coffee every weekend. Join him on Patok Jeproks every Saturday and Sunday from 8AM – 11AM on TAG Weekend Na.

You can only eat one for the rest of your life, sinigang or adobo?

Sinigang fo' life! Basta yung sampaloc. Yung bayabas version kasi mediyo malapit sa amoy ko kaya ilag ako.

Don't judge a book, cover it!
