The very first Philippine FM radio station I get to listen online was Y101 Cebu back in 2000-2001. I couldn’t remember well, but all I know was that during that time, iPhone was still a dream, and listening to a radio station via cellphone was only limited to analog broadcasts.

Fast forward to present, and remaining true to its claim to fame “Always First”, Y101 Cebu embraces the newest way to listen to the station “on the go”. I mean literally.

Listen to Y101 on your iPhone, iPod Touch or Nokia cellphones (selected units only, ex. 5800 Xpress Music). You need to download and install some software or plugins though for it to work.

Y101 could one of these days develop an iPhone app or a Java app for Nokia, so everyone can listen to the station without installing the Nokia PC suite for instance. Right now, it’s nearly impossible to listen to traditional online streaming if you are just using the conventional WAP browser.

But for now, this is all how it works, just click here to get instructions.

I am yet to try this. But I recommend if you are in Cebu or within Y101’s coverage, you are better off using your cellphone’s built-in FM radio tuner. Unless, of course you want to spend Php20.00 per hour listening to the station.
