Good Bye NU

This is really sad. NU 107 closed its doors and signed off for the last time last night. This is the saddest news in the local music scene since Francis M. died.

I won’t go pretending that I am some sort of an avid listener, I’m not. That’s mainly because we don’t get NU here in Batangas! Ever since we had local radio stations around ten years ago, our regular radios can’t pick up stations from Metro Manila.

A lot of local bands had their start at NU. They would not be where they are now if not for this radio station. Where will new bands go to showcase their music?

There will be no NU 107 Rock Awards every year anymore.
