Philippine Radio Stations (including Manila) Streaming

One reason (only one of many) why I like (love!) the Philippines is because it has ENERGY. During the day, I will have to say that the tropical sunshine has a large part to do with that, because biologically, sun rays hitting our photoreceptor cells actually activate numerous bodily functions while also maintaining a healthy circadian rhythm (that's why people who live well beyond the tropic of Cancer and Capricorn get depressed and get their sleep patterns out of whack during the Winter and most of Fall and Spring).

But anyway, beyond the bright sunshine, the Philippines is naturally just a lively place. Perhaps it's a combination of the high population density (which is noticeable in the urban areas but not so much in the provinces) and the vibrant culture. And a unique part of the culture is the Filipinos' fondness for music, and for the most part, it's in good taste. Usually a blend of pop (whether American, Korean, Spanish, or whatever), soft rock, ballads, oldies, and original Pilipino music (OPM), you'll hear it jamming in the jeepney, in the taxi, in the malls, and even as you walk down the street, because there's basically a karaoke/videoke machine at every corner. And the Filipino's taste for generally good music is significantly influenced by what is played on the radio (or perhaps the radio stations are influenced by the Filipinos' taste of music). It's likely both ways, but anyway, below is a list of some of the major radio stations in the Philippines. My favorites (from the few I've heard) are Energy FM (who can forget the slogans "Hi Panggaaa," "May Energy Ka Ba?," "Wag Mong Sabihing Radyo, Sabihin Mo Energy!"), Magic FM, Love Radio, and K-Lite. And if I remember correctly, Star FM and YES! FM are pretty good too. How about you, what's your favorite Philippine radio station?

A good streaming site with most of these is: (Note: use the 'Next' button on the site instead of the page numbers to switch pages as the numbers actually skip a page that has stations such as Energy FM)

Photoreceptor cells.. yes, that's CORRECT!! Our eyes evolved to see under natural sunlight; lack of sunlight during the evening actually starts a chemical reaction to put us to sleep.

Thanks for the list David! OPM rules!!

Of course, sa bansa natin madaming ingay din at madumi sa mga paligid, I hope we can change that.
