Standing in front of a microphone, voice actor Phil Cruz pretends to wield an amulet to defeat the devil for the latest installment of one of the Philippines' few surviving radio dramas.

Cruz is part of a small team of voice actors and technicians producing shows that are broadcast in Tagalog by DZRH, one of the oldest radio stations in the country.

Radio dramas were the main source of entertainment for Filipino families after World War II, just like the rest of the world, but their popularity faded with the rise of television, social media and video livestreaming.
