Ang daming “bago” sa FM ng Manila!
First there was Hit FM 99.5 (from DWRT 99.5), they did not change their format. Heart 103.5 (from K-lite 103.5), which kinda changed their format and Barangay LS 97.1 (from Campus Radio 97.1), Now they changed their format completely.
Gusto ko talagang mag-react sa 97.1 since hindi naman ako regular listener ng k-lite 103.5 and hindi naman nag-reformat ng 99.5 (name change lang, and also management?)
I first got notice of the (possible) format change of 97.1 a week ago from a commercial from GMA Ch.7 and i said to myself, paano na ito, madadagdagan nanaman ang mga katulad ng 90.7 Love radio at 101.9 WRR. Now as i’m writing this, i’m listening to The new 97.1 and the first thing i noticed, the first 2 songs were from Jolina Magdangal and Bitoy (Michael V.), hey i said to myself, avenue na ito ng mga GMA artists na mag-play ng walang sawa ng mag piyesa nila, the same way sa ABS-CBN does to 101.9 WRR. Also they can promote GMA-7’s stuff like crazy, for example yung “The Promise”. hindi nila dati magawa iyon because of the format of the station, diba?
And the DJ’s, they are still the same but they speak in Tagalog! What a change, ang ganda ng English nila, then biglang nag-iba ang personality nila on-air!
Good Luck to the Management of this station, may nabasa ako sa blog na ito (http://migs.wordpress.com/2007/01/02/heart-1035/ Look at comment 11 or around it) na dati they tried to reformat the station but they failed. This time kaya??
