Filipino-Australian radio show Radio Tagumpay commenced on Triple H 100.1FM three years ago. It subscribes to the philosophy that "success" ['tagumpay' in Filipino] is not just about what you achieve, but also what you inspire others to achieve. The two-hour live radio show airs on Mondays, 2pm to 4pm.
Aside from the usual segments of news, community events, children's storytelling and Filipino language class, Radio Tagumpay boasts having Consul Marford Angeles of the Philippine Consulate Sydney doing live phone updates. It conducts interesting interviews of Fil-Aussie achievers from various professions and areas of interests.
Some of the interviewees were Consul-General Anne Jalando-on Louis; Ignatius Jones, Creative Director, Vivid Sydney; Soprano singer Sarah Ampil, winner of three singing competitions; Original Pinoy Music [OPM] icon Jim Paredes; Broadway stage actors MiG Ayesa, Roanne Monte and Jose Llana; local artists Marcus Rivera, Brian Lorenz, Joanna Ampil, Felino Dolloso, John Gomez Goodway and Meynard Penalosa, to name a few. It also provides platform for young people pursuing their passion in the performing arts, sports, creative writing, painting and other areas.
Radio Tagumpay goes beyond being a radio show. It staged the 2015 and 2016 Inspire Concerts which was lauded as a huge success not only for showcasing the talents of FilAussie artists and engaging the radio station with the local community, but also for raising some funds for micro-finance projects under Grameen Australia, Childreamers and Triple H.
