Ambassador and Mrs. Tiburcio Baja listen to FEBC on their Hallicrafters multiband radio. Tiburcio Baja was Philippine ambassador/consulate general to many countries including London. The Bajas were faithful supporters of FEBC since its founding. During World War II, Tiburcio's voice of encouragement was heard in the Philippines over historic KGEI (q.v.), fifteen years before FEBC purchased the station.
