Kuya Daniel Razon told PEP.PH he plans to revive Student Canteen
PEP.PH, the popular online entertainment portal, recently posted an article by Nonie Nicasio about Kuya Daniel Razon’s plans to revive the popular noontime show Student Canteen hosted by former senator Eddie Ilarde.
Kuya Daniel said in the PEP interview that –
“Ang UNTV ay public service channel talaga at doon ang thrust namin, pero we want to come up with a noontime show. I’ve already talked with Kuya Eddie,” pahayag ni Daniel sa PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portl) noong isang araw sa Techno Wave Bar, II Terrazzo Building, Tomas Morato, Quezon City.
“Sabi niya ‘sige, dahil ikaw na ngayon ang Kuya, e’. Sabi ko, sige basta seryoso iyan Kuya Eddie. Tingin ko ay makakasama pa rin si Kuya Eddie as host nito, pero sabi ko ay pag-usapan na lang natin kung paano.”
Pahabol pa ni Daniel (na creative consultant ng UNTV at host ng Good Morning Kuya na napapanood Mondays to Fridays, 4:45 – 9:00 am), “We’re just starting para sa plan for the revival of Student Canteen. Gusto ko kasing maging tema ay scholarship pa rin. Sincee we will be putting up yung free collage namin ng Mass Com at Nursing para sa indigents, gusto kong ma-enhance sa ganoong aspeto.”
“We are hoping before the year ends, na masisimulan na ito. Baka maghanap din kami ng mga bagong host, kumbaga, new generation, e. Si Roderick Paulate na kaibigan ko, baka makasali siya rito.”
Kuya Daniel revealed more public service projects that he plan to launch, particularly in helping media men.
“May isa pa nga sana kaming project, na isang housing project naman. And Actually po, hindi lang ito pang entertainment press, kundi in general. Start na sana kami noong time na nagkausap kami ni Mike Defensor na secretary pa sa Housing, nasa Channel 7 pa ako noon. Kay alang medyo complicated. Kaya ito na lang muna, itong medical mission.”
So read it all about it! (We will upload the translated version soon.)

THROUGHOUT the dinner, held at a brand-new snazzy bar on the Tomas Morato stretch merely a stone’s throw away from his old home, ABS-CBN, broadcaster and service provider Daniel Razon kept repeating, ‘This is nothing but a simple dinner. Wala itong ibang agenda.’
Razon, who prefers to be called Mr. Public Service, said he wanted to launch a regular medical mission for the benefit of distressed media workers. He expressed sadness over the fate of some old friends of his who, out of poverty, could not avail of medical services in their old age, or when they had ceased being productive.
He said the medical-dental mission he had in mind could be conducted weekly at the UNTV premises at 907 EDSA near Quezon Avenue. Razon hosts the daily morning show, ‘Good Morning’, Kuya on the cable network.
The show, produced in cooperation with ‘Ang Dating Daan’, holds daily medical missions where a low of 300 people to a high of 600 ask for help daily. Razon said, ‘If I can help these people regularly, why can I not do the same to my media friends?’
During the dinner, Razon downplayed speculations he might be doing all this in preparation for a bigger role as a public servant. He issued, however, two other important announcements.
First, in cooperation with Bro. Eli Soriano, he will put up a free college offering Nursing and Mass Communication to poor but deserving students. The college building is currently being constructed along EDSA, Quezon City.
Second, UNTV is laying the groundwork for the revival of ‘Student Canteen’, the most popular noontime variety show in the 50s and 60s, which made a comeback in the mid-70s. Razon said he has gotten the blessings of Eddie Ilarde, the lone living stalwart of the program.

From Pilipino Star Ngayon, Sanga-Sangandila columnist Veronica R. Samio, on April 1, 2009 posted this news about Kuya Daniel Razon.
Tuwing makakaharap ko ang broadcaster na si Daniel Razon ay palagi akong may natutuklasang magandang bagay na ginagawa niya. But this is the first time na talagang pamumunuan niya ang isang medical mission na ang mabibigyang biyaya ay ang mga writers.
“Actually two years na akong nagsasagawa ng medical mission pero first time ito na ang magbe-benefit ay ang mga manunulat,” simula ni Daniel sa isang intimate dinner na ibinigay niya sa mga manunulat sa entertainment bilang pasasalamat sa patuloy nilang suporta sa kanyang mga gawain.
“Once a month ko itong gagawin at gusto ko sanang isagawa ito tuwing Linggo dahil maluwag na panahon ito sa kanila, 8:00 a.m. hanggang 5:00 p.m. Mabibigyan sila ng check-up, X-ray, ECG, laboratory, blood exam, operasyon at mga gamot kung kinakailangan. Mayroon din kaming nakaantabay na ambulansya kung may mangailangan at mga 30 doctors. Lahat ay magaganap sa UNTV studios na matatagpuan sa harap ng Trinoma, malapit sa PhilAm Homes sa EDSA.
Kailan lamang inilunsad ang isang photo exhibit ni Daniel, kulang-kulang sa 100 mga larawang kuha niya ay inilagay on display sa EDSA Shangri-La at inipon niya ng mga dalawang taon mula sa kanyang napakaraming paglalakbay pero sa dinner na kasama niya ang press ay may mga natanggap ang mga dumalo ng isang CD niya na pinamagatang All My Life, Songs of Love by Kuya Daniel Razon.
