Tiya Dely Magpayo

“Love your work and your work will take care of you.”

I won’t forget that line uttered by no less than the grand dame of Philippine radio – Fidela “Tiya Dely” Magpayo – during a personal interview with her 10 years ago.

We’ve only talked for an hour, but it’s like talking with her forever. She was full of life and very endearing. I have learned so many things from her in such a short time. She shared a lot about her love for what she does as radio counselor and commitment to help other people.

When asked where she gets the motivation to help, Tiya Dely says, “Common sense and more on Filipino values.” For several decades she imparts realistic solution to the problems presented by avid letter senders.

She gives them a piece of advice and letter senders take her every word for it. I guess Tiya Dely can deal with any problem as technical as securing rv insurance when a letter sender would ask for help.

Tiya Dely is no longer around, but she will continue to live in the hearts of so many radio listeners whose lives she has touched for many years…
