I am not be a regular listener of NU Rock but I tune in to this station if I want to listen to songs that have not been abused (i.e. gasgas) due to too much airplay.
They gave the rock industry a space in the FM band and provided a venue for upcoming local rock artists to showcase their music in their In The Raw program.
It’s sad that they had to reformat to stay afloat. And what better way to do that than be a pop station. Who would have thought that the same station who used to play underground international and OPM rock is now playing Justin Beiber songs? What a tragedy.
To the rock legend, NU Rock, it’s airstaff and crew… and to the fledgling and full-fledged rock artists… condolences. †
P.S.: NU Rock signed off last November 7, 2010 at 12:05AM and played Huling El Bimbo by the Eraserheads as their final song.
