Putting the CAMPUS back in your RADIO

Close to this day nearly a year ago, one of Metro Manila's most popular FM radio stations, Campus Radio 97.1 WLS-FM, fell prey to an ambush reformat instigated by Mr. Imbestigador, 24 Oras news anchor and baduy-at-heart Vice President for Radio Operations of RGMA Mike C. Enriquez, systematically silencing the most successful mainstream Pop music station in the Metro, displacing not just a huge bulk of Manila's studentry, but young urban professionals as well, listeners who tuned in day in and day out, tuning into FM stalwart shows such as The Top 20 At 12, radio's longest running daily hits countdown, as well as the highly informative tidbits of Infopop, album launches from local bands on Campus Radio's Rock-It Launcher; peering into the listening habits of their favorite local artists on Other People's Music; eagerly awaiting the month's spotlighted performer on Front.Center. Plus FM's first groundbreaking Campus Aircheck, FM's original platform for potential radio talents. All wiped off the face of the FM band in one megalomaniacal fell swoop. Gone, it has been, but certainly not forgotten. Until now.

Now, everyone's favorite radio station is poised for resurrection in the very near, and not-so-distant future! Yes, Campus Radio is coming your way, and nothing nor no one can stop it now. The Metro's beloved Campus Radio will hit your FM airwaves.. SOON!

With the tumultuous summary dismissal of the entire Campus Radio staff from Barangay LS just this past January 16, displacement has opened the doors of opportunity for the once beleaguered and embattled Air Force, turning disadvantage into their advantage, evening out the odds in their favor. Lo and behold, from the burning ashes of a scorched barangay, rising Phoenix-like, Campus Radio LIVES!

As of this writing, Campus Radio is green and go. It's all systems go, having found a new (and anonymous-for-now) FM home. The buzz is building, as we speak, with anticipation levels about to reach fever pitch. It's definitely happening. It's on! Stay tuned to this blog and keep your FM ears peeled for more teasers and flash announcements about anything and everything about Campus Radio.

Having lost their home over their old frequency of 97.1, you may be wondering where Campus Radio will be moving.. let's just say, that'll have to wait.. for now. Stay tuned.

I just hope the signal quality would be as excellent as it was in its 97.1 days, so I don't have to dance around with the antenna.

ever since i can remember, i've always listened to the radio en route to school, from school to home, and times in between but when the station was reformatted oh-so-suddenly, i actually lost the habit of listening to the radio. i hope campus radio really will rise again.

From all the changes that happened to Campus Radio, now Barangay LS, it was a tragedy. Yes it is. Everything, most of the dj’s were flushed. It’s hard to move on. Some of the guardians said it was a massacre, a suicide for the station. The new jocks came out like those grasses that people want to cut off. Bad idea. Well, who are used with changes for craziness? I do! It’s fun!? No? ‘Esssss? Ganito na lang. I’m affected. The issues and whatever you call it. Blame it on someone. Blame it on the network? Who owns it anyway? Kanya kanyang batikos. Kanya kanyang komento. Pero may nakikinig naman ah? Yun ang point dun. Kapag walang nangyari.. Eh di palitan… Ganun lang naman diba? Don’t feel bad about everything… people have to work. Bosses thinks and do what is something. Guys’ Baragnay LS will stay. It’s owned by GMA 7, para sa mga KAPUSO. 

Hello to all avid fans and listeners of 97.1 Barangay LS-Fm...
I would like to ask why there's a simultaneous airing of this radio station at probably, 93-96 radio dials?...Is RGMA had already taken over that said radio station?....
But I would like also to comment on about the quality of music and signal, there are such disrputions in our area that makes the signal not clear...and sometimes, the signal is so weak!, there are also times that we wouldn't hear what are the disk jocks are saying on-air (whether somnetimes are so non-sense talks about various topics!)...why? wouldn't you ask it for assistance to any RGMA technicians/radio operators?....
but 101.9/90.7 are those radio stations which is being in rivalry with this station?...you're such a trying hard...
If I were you, I would stop our radio airing and operations, because the ratings doesn't satistfy with our aims..and the advertisers are in doubt whether they will advertise to air their product/services/propagandas or not?......
