While other radio stations in Metro Manila are sporting on their brand new spanking jingles made in the United States, iFM is loud and proud to be airing their homegrown jingles created by today’s promising artists.

In 2006, iFM wowed the radio industry when they commissioned the top artists in the Philippine Music Industry to sing their new jingles iFM Pwede jingle. Stars like Regine Velasquez, Sarah Geronimo, Gloc 9, Andrew E, Zelle among others, sang iFM to its top spot in the ratings games.

In 2009, vocalist Byron Ricamara of the band Squeezer, gave the iFM jingle and a whole new sound. In the tradition of electronic punk rock hits of today as Metro Station, 30H!3, and Cobra Starship, the new iFM “Siguradong Enjoy Ka” jingle is another ground breaking production.

iFM also scored with its hit nationwide program The i10 Countdown hosted by a crack team of presenters : DJ Yumi, Bojo B and Kuholito. The unique way of presenting this chart program is what makes this show stand out. My hats off once again to production genius Mr. Van O and to the creative staff of iFM.

99.5 DWR-TFM Jingles Complete

The first time I was in Manila, the first radio station I tuned into was DWR-TFM, undoubtedly it was the Z100 or the KIIS FM of the Philippines. 99.5 had and always has the complete ingredients that makes a CHR station complete. Great jocks, cool contests, and four to floor radio imaging.

DWR-TFM surely has the best radio imaging in town. You name it, they got jingles from TM Century to Thompson Creative.

Their jingles really defined what CHR station should be in the Philippines. My friend here j5bata shared his airchecks and off air montage of DWR-TFM jingles. I didn’t know there were more of them.

One of the resings here, I recognize it coming from an original KIIS jingle package.

The rest, wow, some jingles are classic, that date back to the PAMS era. PAMS was the popular jingle company in the U.S. in the 50s. Check out the jingles here on his YouTube video.

99.5 DWRTFM Aircheck on First Day of Broadcast Return

Here are a couple of goodies for all ye 995 fans out there. The first YouTube vid here is an off air compilation of 995 imaging and jingle cuts.

The second vid here showcases the first few hours of 995’s return to the airwaves. This is an off-air cap of the Morning Show with Joshua Z.  You’ll hear the a couple of signature morning parodies here: the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Morning Show Parody and the 1960s Batman Parody. The parody jingles sounds really great, not sure if they were made locally.

The classic 995 jingles returns also, they were produced in Dallas, Texas by Thompson Creative, it was syndicated from an original package for KFRC, San Franciso. Some of the 995 jingles were produced by TM Century, specifically those that bear the 102.7 KIIS FM logo.

Does anyone know who’s behind the male VOICEOVER?

Thanks again to J5Bata for the clips.  Check out more Metro Manila jingle montages and airchecks here –>


99.5 Campus FM Aircheck

99.5 Campus FM Aircheck

I pulled a Campus FM off air montage last night, I caught Jimmy Jam on the air from 5-7 pm. He was having this cut-by-the-vocals ‘syndrome’ which is of course common among DJs. It was like at the top of the 5 pm drive when Jimmy Jam introed a Linkin Park song only to be caught by the vocals. I am always been a big fan of Jimmy Jam, but I believe the guy has an excellent talent in reinventing himself. Not because he was absent for a while in a CHR radio, but his style is just so 90s. (I’m sorry)

Big deep voices on the radio are not obsolete, they sound best in promos and liners. These days, what sells and cuts through in DJing are the boy-next door type of DJ voices. Gone are the days of the old Rick Dees or Casey Casem style of disc jockeying, so I should say my dear friend should reinvent himself.

Not in a way, that he should sound like a 16 year old kid. It’s just that the usual DJing stuff just don’t cut it anymore.

Anyway, I’d like to commend 99.5 Campus FM for a having a decent radio station imaging. Nothing beats a simple non-processed voiceover liners that say the words “99.5 Campus FM Is The Number One Hit Music Station in Metro Manila”. The traffic promo was nicely done, just lengthy though.

Check out the aircheck here.

Not being a devil’s advocate, just want to hear the best sounds on Philippine radio. After all, that’s what we are known to be — good talent.
