Pinoy Rock Radio Online is owned by Paulo Tamayo Legaspi. The station plays independent unsigned bands from the Philippines as well as mainstream music.
Paulo shares that it is tough running a station but for him thisis a commitment to music and showing everyone that there is a healthy music scene.
He is inspired by stations like LA 105 and NU 107.
In addition, he said that there is still a gap that needs to be filled. There is a station called Jam 88.3, but he says not all indie bands are featured.
The playlist is wide that includes ska, ethnic, blues, classic rock, rockabilly, new wave, punk and metal.
Paulo is actually from the IT industry. He started converting his vinyl and cassette collection into digital format, as well as his CD collections.
Paulo reveals that he is paying 15000 pesos per month as operating expenses. He buys the music that he plays on the station.
This is his way of showing support for the bands.
Even if he is not earning a single peso, he is doing it for the love of OPM.
