In 100 Words: Yes the Best? More Like Yes the Worst!

Looks like nothing has changed on 101.1 Yes the Best.

Despite a massive and heavily hyped rebrand that took several months to materialize (even going as far as labeling the station as the ‘Home of the Millennials’), the sound of Yes the Best remains virtually the same as its previous incarnation. They are still a ‘masa’ station with ridiculously named DJs, playing some OPM, dance and hip-hop tracks, and even classic rock ballads from years past.

If Yes wants to truly live up to their billing as the ‘Home of the Millennials’, the station should have morphed into a Top 40 CHR station ala Magic 89.9 and 99.5 Play FM. This is poor advertising on MBC’s part, one that will definitely fool the more educated listener.

Sorry, but the rebrand of 101.1 Yes the Best is a thumbs down. Get your priorities straight, MBC.

  1. And provincial Yes FM stations suffered the same fate since May 1. Yes FM actually targets millenials na nasa lower class. If you can’t stand it, there’s Home Radio (in Cebu, CDO and Gensan), Magic (in Cebu, Zamboanga, CDO and Gensan), and Radio Boracay.

  2. Ah, cosmetic changes. They may look good in the outside but they aren’t for the better deep inside.

    Just like what I am fearing of concerning the upcoming facelift on one entity with on one of the three AM stations this coming June.

    • Yes FM is fooling around. No kidding. They think they’re the ‘Home of the Millennials’ now, but they’re actually not. They’re still Yes FM, Automatic Yan, just with a new name and same format style.

  3. I know the reason why Yes The Best airs love songs. This is because of their limited playlist. Compare po to either Magic or mellow na nag e air po ng slow down songs pag sunday evening…

    • Both Magic and Mellow are legit CHR stations that make full use of current hit songs. Ang Yes ay feeling CHR station with their ‘Home of the Millennials’ slogan kaso the reality is that they’re still a ‘masa’ or a Hot AC station. That’s why they still play those cheesy Air Supply and MLTR songs every now and then, sandwiched by some OPM songs and a few modern ones that they feel are trending right now.

    • Ewan ko kung kakagat yan sa MBC management na kung saan mas may pakialam sila sa pera at ratings. Look at the once-proud DWRK (formerly WRocK). MBC destroyed that station since 2012.

      • If they’re not into the new Yes, meron namang Magic, Play, Mellow and RX that plays legit CHR songs. Or they can download on Spotify. It is MBC’s call, not ours, to be more on the money than the quality of music.

    • They should make that move ASAP. Masyado kasing kahawig sa Love Radio na sister station pa naman nila ang approach ng Yes. At puro yabang pa ang dalawa na claiming No. 1 and No. 2 daw sila. They should stop that too.
