CCM on FM in the Philippines

Jim asked me to pass this along: The Edge Radio, now on FM in the Philippines.

I’m not much of a CCM guy, but for those of you in the Philippines who are, The Edge, a ministry of UCB-IFA, has stations in Manila (91.5), Davao (104.3), Lucena (90.3), Ilocos Sur (90.5), and Zamboanga (98.1). It’s nice to see evangelical Christian radio broadcasting in the Philippines taking hold of the mainstream in this manner, especially given the heavily Catholic context; but then, Filipino religious practice has always leaned toward the charismatic, so it should come as no surprise that CCM of the “non-hard-sell” variety should appeal even to Filipino Catholics. (By the way, my ex’s own station, 98.7 DZFE, under the FEBC banner, continues to struggle onward.)

At some point in the future, I really should tell you about growing up with RJ 100.3, back when they were still a 1950s oldies station. “Gising na, RJ na!”
