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.
