In 100 Words: Indefinite Hiatus

Thank you for enjoying From the Tube for the past five years. I hope you understand the situation.

Peace.

#LessThan200Words: On 105.9 Like FM

Retro 105.9 quietly signed off without any publicity. So what are the reasons why this station fell from grace, and how will its replacement Like FM be able to fare in a tough radio environment?

Timow's Turf

(Requested by Rexdel Yabut Mallari. Apologies for the rush writing but the Turf is not done yet.)

THE RUMORS and observations this closing month from PinoyExchange over DWLA 105.9 FM in Metro Manila came true.

Retro 105.9 shut down last Friday without formal notice — despite the warning signs — and is replaced with 105.9 Like FM, for the sixth try (fifth under blocktimer since 2003), the following day. The genre of the newly branded radio station is leaning to adult Top 40 or a mix of current and classic hits.

For the shocked and non-oriented loyal listeners, many reasons why the format change: both neighbors’ (FM2 104.3 and Wish 107.5) rise, dwindling listenership (translating into low revenue), migration of DJs and outstanding and unsettled obligations from the last blocktimer.

Because of that, the aforementioned requester knew the situation will go worse but he made suggestions on who would be…

Smackdown 13/12/13: Ambrose Commentary Again – Because He Can

Eire + Alba

Dean Ambrose Rollins collage

And me having watched this Shield vs Usos match with the Punk promo later on but nothing else really. Because I can, too. Wasn’t really in the mood for anything else and when I’m being able just to have the best I leave it there. But I don’t really know (until now) why I’ve transcribed several of Dean Ambrose quotes.

Spilled beer for the Beermen. History of beloved Beermen let go unceremoniously.

But, as we all know, the league itself is a business. Team owners will do what is best for business. Am I surprised to see this franchise resort to this tactic? No, because I have seen this franchise trade away beloved players after these players have given everything to this franchise…
