“Yes! We can do it!” is an innocent response that entails a whole gamut of experiences four generations of BC 106 broadmajors have gone through. It’s an emotional ride surely not for the faint of heart.

Keeping up with current music trends, “Soloista” was a pure marketing success (thanks to Multiply, YouTube and Yahoo!). Even though the album carries a roster of talented singer-songwriters, the CD actually didn’t sell. But audiences and sponsors loved the whole concept.

So how is the fourth time around any different? Not much.

Ambitious. Yes. Dramatic. Yes. Expensive. Absolutely. Fun. U-huh. Successful. Of course. Would we do it again? Hmm.

Suffice to say, this fourth outing is a culmination of the past successes and failures of previous albums and still earns its rightful place in BC106’s Hall of Fame.

It’s time for this elective to evolve. Take a bow, everyone.

An acoustic album featuring bands White Noise, Pandora, Kiko Machine, Lady Bedspacers and Blue Note Funk. Produced by U.P. Broadcasting students.

The very first album production of broadcasting students in the College of Mass Communication in U.P. Diliman. Under an elective called BC106, the goal of the course is to exploit music as an art and business. Unplug `N Play is an album of unplugged performances composed of unsigned bands. From almost 20 auditionees, 5 bands emerged as worthy candidates: White Noise, Pandora, Kiko Machine, Lady Bedspacers and Blue Note Funk,  each with their own musical identity.

The birth pains included off-sync recordings, headstrong artists, marketing woes and internal chaos. However, the project was financially successful with its break-even finish, and set the foundation for future BC106 productions (ReStrung in 2004, Classicology in 2006 and Soloista in 2007).
