When I first heard of this news, I pinched myself in disbelief. No way, this isn't true. After listening to the last hours of NU 107 last night, I still said, maybe it was just a joke and maybe they aren't signing off for good. I turned the radio on and went to 107 frequency and all was static....
It was a a sad news for rock aficionados. Sunday 11:59 PM was the last time audiences would hear of NU 107. Yup, I was also saddened by this fact. I am not a hard core rock fan but I loved some of the groups/bands that were played in this station through the years. I don't want to deal on what has happened and why they closed shop. I posted this to reminisce and give thanks and appreciation to a once fledging FM station.
Nu has changed the landscape of radio listening. It has been long glorious years of fun and rocking. NU gave us a breath of fresh air with its youthful energy, dynamics, creativity and out-of-the-box sounds. It has been a home to some of local talents' bests like Spongecola, Bamboo, Chicosci and Eraserheads. The year isn;t complete as well if fans don't get to join the NU Rock Awards. Too sad their October 29 show would be their last. And what a wonderful choice for a final song - Huling El Bimbo. It was a dramatic ending. Here's an excerpt from Youtube of the final 10 minutes of NU 107.

Truly NU 107 will be sorely missed. Thanks for all the wonderful years you have given us. I don't wanna say goodbye. Maybe, just maybe, till we meet again.
