Tribute to the King of the time lately scenarios is going fast. But really fast. Not otherwise explained that seven years since when departed for eternity Joako Murgas, the King of the scenarios after. The news about the death of this friend and pupil has been one of the most bad of how many have received in my life. According to the manuals of journalism one must learn to not be astonished at all, but the departure of a friend will always leave you perplexed. Newcomer to Maicao after a trip which turned academic commitments I collected in Duarte, the kindest driver terminal city. Not let me accommodate well when released, without anesthesia, the bad new: our mutual friend had died victim of a tragic accident.

The mood changed immediately. The joy of Homecoming was transformed into melancholy. Now the soul was wrinkled and mind filled with memories of the friend. My hands were rigid and my pale countenance. The view is clouded and I realized that she was crying again as I did when departed Armando Correa Saavedra, another close colleague in the everyday struggles of journalism, who two years earlier had gone. It was on 22 March 2003 and nobody would presage the fate of that boy cheerful and bouncy, who daily filled with his melodious voice Guajira households through the radio. Life reached him to be speaker, journalist, animator, college student and what you enjoyed most, a man of the people and for the people. The day of the funeral, the community met at the University of la Guajira to pay tribute to the friend and companion.

There, with tears in his eyes, someone promised to write a book that reflect its history, anecdotes, achievements and accomplishments. It was Wilder Murgas, his brother and a friend. Three years later, the book was printed and in circulation. It is entitled: Joako Murgas, the King of the scenarios. Wilder has fulfilled his word and in interviews for radio, where before the voice be heard now absent from Joako, repeated with insistence that the book is also a tribute to Armando Correa Saavedra, Edgar Perez Acosta, alvaro Duarte Padilla and Jaime Rengifo Junior, who delighted us with their prodigious voices now make company somewhere in eternity.
