The Philippines radio industry remains to be a Country-free industry. Although CHR and AC stations are currently including new country artists in their playlist, not a single station has ever cashed in on a new country FM station. Probably it’s the salability of the format, ABC tried to do Hispanic format with Rio 106 in early 2000, but if format flopped rather than format flipped. The Philippines though have good country singers – Freddie Aguiler is a pillar in the Philippine country music scene.
You’ll be proud of Pinoy Stations… even if you hate 101.9 For Life or LS 97.1
