Composer Vehnee Saturno shares rags-to-riches story in `Art 2 Art'

For multi-awarded composer Vehnee Saturno, it was no easy climb to the top. His career choice initially frowned upon by his mother, he persevered to win her approval and coped with rejections before establishing himself as a hitmaker – with such popular songs as Be My LadySana Kahit Minsan and Till My Heartaches End to his name.

Saturno shares his inspirational rags-to-riches story in the July 21 episode of Art 2 Art. Hosted by prima ballerina Lisa Macuja and produced by the Manila Broadcasting Company, Art 2 Art airs every Sunday, 3:30 to 4 p.m., on DZRH (666 khz on the AM band) and on cable television via RHTV. It can also be viewed simultaneously on the Internet through DZRH Live Streaming at www.dzrh.com.ph.

On July 7, Art 2 Art welcomes respected poet, literary critic and professor Gemino Abad as he recounts his journey into the world of words. The founder of the Philippine Literary Arts Council also recites two of his poems from memory, to Macuja's amazement.

On July 14, graphic designer and book illustrator Beth Parrocha-Doctolero guests in an episode marking National Children's Book Day. A founding member of Ilustrador ng Kabataan or INK, she has illustrated and designed over 50 books, most of them for kids.

On July 28, Art 2 Art pays tribute to the late Angono artist, Jose “Pitok” Blanco. Acknowledged as a “master of Philippine genre,” Blanco rendered folk themes, Filipino traditions and nature scenes in his massive murals. Michael and Joy Blanco recall their father's life and times, and how – through his example and encouragement – they came to be celebrated as Angono's premier family of artists.

Art 2 Art was recently named as Best Radio Program for Culture and the Arts at the Golden Dove Awards given out by the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas.
