Often confused with Boy Mondragon ("Rain gently falls..."), Efren Montes was a child star in the Seventies who, according to one of many trivia listings that are forwarded via email, remade the song "Kiss Me, Kiss Me." As a child actor, Efren was a regular in Channel 9's family sitcom Padre de Pamilya, whose cast was headed by then Tisoy lead, now radio commentator, Jimmy Morato.

Later, Efren would attend a training school for music and in 1981, join his first band, The Amicables. His singing career brought him around the Philippines and gigs in Guam, Bahrain, Saipan, Thailand, Japan and Hong Kong. He joined touring bands like A-Live in 1993 and Chorus Gold in 1996.

Gómez Rivera's journalism career started with the magazine El maestro during the 1960s. Its goal was to aid Filipino teachers in Spanish in the practice of their profession. Aside from being the current editor of Nueva era, he also edits two other weeklies: The Listening Post and The Tagalog Chronicle.In 1997, he worked on television as a segment host of ABS-CBN's now defunct early morning program Alas Singko Y Medya, presenting a five-minute Spanish lesson. Gómez Rivera released an LP back in 1960 when he was producing La voz hispanofilipina, a radio program on DZRH. It was a product of his research on a number of "lost" Filipino songs sung in Spanish during the Spanish colonial era. He reintroduced the songs through the LP entitled Nostalgia filipina, where his vocal interpretation is accompanied by a rondalla. Digitally remastered with funding from the Spanish Program for Cultural Cooperation, the LP was reissued and launched at Instituto Cervantes de Manila on August 14, 2006.
