Patrick Salvado Idringi once worked for Capital FM but left radio due to his busy schedule among other reasons. This was during a time when his comedy career was skyrocketing. Now that it’s there, he has decided to return to the airwaves, this time at the oldest radio station in Uganda, Sanyu FM.
Salvado made the announcement on his social media captioning the poster. “Well well. Tomorrow it’s a date 6-10am the breakfast show Sanyu FM”.
We immediately contacted him to tell us what made him change his mind about re-joining radio and he said this was supposed to have happened earlier on.
“I was supposed to have come back last year but I didn’t get a show I wanted on my former station. Then I was contacted last week about joining Sanyu and they were giving me the biggest show so I couldn’t say no,” he told us.
As one of the biggest comedy exports we have, it is hard to see how Salvado will sustain his radio job when things get back to normal because of his busy schedule but he’s not worried about that for now: “Well I can’t tell the future for sure but right now I want to focus on making whatever show I get the best listened to show in the country,” he said.
