Freebies are a great way to sample a company’s service or products. There are plenty of ways of you can avail of such free services.
1. Imaging and Voiceover Forums
RadioDaddy.com is probably a cliché when it comes to requesting free VOs. Great if you want to try a new voice for your station without going through different sites. You can also try BroadcastingWorld.net
2. Request a Free Demo
There are plenty of voice services and production companies that offer free custom demos. You can send in your script. However, there could be limits in the length or production.
3. Pre-produced Freebies
Services like ScottLanter.com offer promotional pre-produced sweepers for free. You can also download pre-produced sweeper shells and add your station voice.
Again, the purpose of availing these services is to try out a company or a voice. Keep yourself updated of the latest in the industry so you know who’s offering which service or product.

Voting for the best imaged radio station has to be categorized according to format since each format has its distinct way of imaging and presenting its personality. BTW, imaging refers to the station IDs used by radio stations for example DWRR has station ID jingles that go “Alam Mo Na Yan” 101.9 For Life – that’s imaging.
For AC stations, iFM 93.9 from Radio Mindanao Network is the best imaged radio station in the country to date. Their new catchphrase theme is the iFM “Pwede” station IDs. This was a good follow up to their first imaging campaign aptly themed “iFM – and FM ko ay …..”. The new Ifm Pwede station IDs feature jingles that encompass all the diverse styles of music, from pop, rock, acoustic, to reggae and even RNB. They even had Kyla singing for their new iFM jingles. Although iFM commissioned an American based jingle imaging producer TM Century , now called Jones TM, for their iFM jingles, the folks at DWKC still managed to craft original and Pinoy-flavored IDs that are true in Filipino spirit.
For CHR, RX 93.1 is the best imaged station.
The worst imaged station so far is not from a Manila station but from a Cebu station. ABS-CBN’s M.O.R. My Only Radio LS 97.1 Lupig Sila station is the worst dressed radio station in the Philippines to date. Maybe Peter Rabbit needs to review on their regional FM station. Although their MOR jingle is popularly enough to obtain much needed mind recall, it’s the overall presentation, appeal or stationality of MOR Cebu that is really sick.
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.
