If you’ve listened to previous episodes, you’ll notice  that I lean towards my music background to relate to the creatives in the show. The music scene in Cebu is near and dear to my heart. Ever since I was in high school, I wanted to  be in a band that played original compositions and gigged constantly. I was fortunate to have that experience, and it introduced me to a whole community that I did not know existed.

Today is the best time for music in Cebu. There’s so much good music coming out of our shores, it is difficult to keep up with what is happening. Hopefully in the near future, we’ll be talking to some of the up and coming music artists in the podcast.

For now, I wanted to examine what happened in the past. After all, the past is what you learn today to benefit the future. With that in mind, I invited Alex “Phatboy” Lim to guest in the podcast. Having real experience managing a band and organizing concerts, he has plenty of stories to share.

If you were a band in the early 2000’s, Alex needs no introduction. He was the band manager of Urbandub, started the concert series called Sonic Boom, and even managed to bring in a few international bands to the Philippines.

His whole career has been in music, so we talk about how he started in music, his interest in media and how it helped push his career in music, what it was like managing bands and organizing events.

Enjoy the podcast!
