Ma͏a͏l͏a͏a͏l͏a ͏mo ͏ka͏y͏a (lit. Would you remember? / English title: Memories; abbreviated as MMK) is a Philippine drama anthology series broadcast on ABS-CBN every Saturday evenings and is hosted by Charo Santos-Concio. It has become the longest-running drama anthology in Philippine television and in the world, reaching its 25th year in 2016. The program features weekly real-life stories or anecdotes of common people or even famous celebrities and personalities through letter sending. The series has a counterpart radio program being broadcast on DZMM called "Maalaala Mo Kaya sa DZMM", a paperback ("pocketbooks") adaptation and a comic book adaptation under Mango Comics & Sterling. The program is named after the eponymous song, "Maalaala Mo Kaya" by Constancio de Guzman. The song also serves as the program's opening theme, which was performed by Dulce. Beginning in the early 2000s airings, the opening has been covered by Carol Banawa, replacing Dulce's version. A classics re-run version of the anthology series MMK Classics premiered on June 3, 2012 on The Filipino Channel. Because of the outreach abroad, the TFC series focused on fully translating every episode with English subtitles. The Philippine version entitled "MMK Klasiks" aired on ABS-CBN's Kapamilya Gold afternoon block as a temporary replacement program from December 17, 2012 to January 18, 2013 before replaced into May Isang Pangarap. MMK Klasiks also airs on DZMM TeleRadyo as a fill-in to its radio counterpart, because the latter was pre-recorded.
