Papa Dudut of Barangay LS 97.1 Manila Started Doing This On His YouTube Channel Because of This

People nowadays listen to radio, not just on radio apps, forget cellphonse. Well yes, in the provinces they are a staple.

But online, especially among OFWs, it’s not all about websites and apps.

They listen to radio on YouTube!

The most popular content on radio is no longer music, when you are talking about the internet domain. It’s those non-music based content, the talk based shows like love letters, on air callins and what not.

And if your radio station does not provide that kind of content to your online audience, people will find a way.

To be fair, Barangay LS 97.1 has on its website an RSS or podcast of its latest episodes of their talk based shows.

They also have mobile apps for iOS and Android. But who wants to have an app for every station? When you can listen to them in one place?

YouTube is that place. People upload recorded radio shows especially the Barangay Love Stories and Wanted Sweetheart.

They become so popular, that these YouTube contents have more views than those from official radio station channels.

So Papa Dudut, anchor of Barangay Love Stories decided to upload episodes of his shows on his YouTube channel.

It’s tricky though, there is a reason why fm stations don’t even bother live streaming or uploading their on air content to YouTube.

It is because of the copyright ID protection of the platform.

Shows like Barangay Love Stories while it is mostly talk based, also plays music in the background, that mushy sentimental background music will get copyright IDed by YouTube and will be reported to authorities and as a result the video will be taken down.

Which is why radio DJs, take it upon themselves to post it and but clear them out first of any potential copyright problems.

It is time consuming, radio stations don’t have much manpower to do it.

What they are up against to though is the democratization of uploading content to YouTube. There are already established YouTube channels out there that post Barangay LS content with much more subscribers, so there is a lot of catching up to do.


Barangay LS starts to implement copyright protection to its radio shows, so they can take down those who upload their shows other than them.

Listen to MOR 101.9 For Life Manila Live Streaming Audio, Playing Catch Up on TuneIn

DWRR MOR 101.9 is playing catch up with the rest of the FM stations in Metro Manila. They are finally streaming their audio via TuneIN.

Just this year, MOR 101.9 revamped their official website to make it compliant with the mobile first and mobile friendly guidelines of Google.

It still broadcasts a video feed on their website, but until recently, their audio streaming is only available via, either through a cable subscription or online.

In the recent years, the Lopez-owned company lets you listen to MOR stations using iWanTV in the Philippines, but that was the restriction, you can only listen to their station and regional sister stations using their own app.

ABS likes to create a wall garden of all its services, especially with their TV or video content.

But then they learned a hard lesson about opening up.

See, their rivals like Love Radio, Yes FM have their own websites and apps too, but they also let their listeners stream their stations via third party, directory-curator platforms like TuneIN.

ABS realized that listeners especially Filipinos abroad do not like the idea of having to pay a monthly fee just to listen to a free-to-air FM station that is supported by advertisements.

Love Radio, Wish FM and Yes The Best! are among the most listened to stations online. And MOR had to do something about it, and finally they gave in.

But not totally.

While it can be heard on TuneIn, it is only available via mobile and you cannot stream the station on desktop.  It is also not clear if this option is available to listeners outside the Philippines.

Live Streaming 87.5 FM1 Manila, Video Streaming, Radio Jingles Imaging

FM1 Philippines has launched its newest imaging package produced by Sound Quadrat.

The station launched in November 2017 as part of the Philippines revamp of its government broadcast facilities.

Airing on 87.5 mHz FM1 is the country’s flagship CHR Top 40 station which will soon open stations in Cebu and Davao.

Using the call letters DWFO, Carlo Jose who used to be the production head at Magic 89.9 is leading the FM1 network.

FM1 will be broadcasting along its sister station FM2 on 104.3 which plays Classic Hits. Its sister stations are RP1 or Radio Pilipinas 738 on AM, RP2 918 kHZ, all of which operate under its mother network PBS (Philippine Broadcasting Service).

Sonny B, who used to be at Red Hot Mix FM in Davao is an appointee of Presidential Communications Operations Office Martin Andanar as the PBS Director General.

FM1 was chosen as the name as it is the first dial point in the country’s FM band. It is also a nod to BBC Radio 1 in the UK, being the official government station.

FM1 plays mostly foreign Top 40 or CHR songs, and select OPM songs that fit the format.

In November, there was a wide discussion as college radio stations who used the 87.5 frequency were not notified of the government takeover.

On May 9, 2018, the station closed its DJ hiring window notifying applicants that they are no longer accepting applications.

FM1 is commercial free just like BBC Radio 1. Listen at

iFM 93.9 Breaks The Mold Once Again with Unique Evening Programming – Horror!

Yes, while other stations are cashing on the love advice format, which saturates most of the afternoon and late evening blocks on radio, DWKC iFM and its nationwide network breaks from the pack.

Their take on the primetime evening is not the mushy, cheese give your listeners advice attack, instead they adopt a horror format.

With the program-segment Takutin Mo Ako – anchor personality Pakito Jones reads letters from listeners that share their horrifying experiences.

The program is sprinkled-complete with production value, special effects, scoring, it’s a one-man band and Pakito Jones pulls it off.

Hats off again to iFM for innovating.

Great job to Van Omega and the rest of the RMN FM Division.
