WAVE 180

BLOGPOST #180
WAVE180

Ladies and Gentlemen may I present you my own special Blogpost #180!!
It was 1994 when out of the blue a NEW WAVE RADIO show from a Dance Music Radio Station would conquer the radio airwaves on the DECADE of the 90s here in MANILA. I'm talking about the Legendary NEW WAVE Radio Show on 89.1 DZMZ(DanZe Muzic Zone) aka. 89DMZ called WAVE180. This is another "The Doctor Is In" EXCLUSIVE BLOGPOST for you guys who frequent my little blog. So join me again in travelling back in time to the good old days of WAVE180 in the 90s as my deepest part of my memory banks can remember and document.

89 DMZ was owned and operated by Intercontinental Broadcasting Corporation better known as IBC13 wherein the studios were located at Broadcast City, Capitol Hills, Diliman, Quezon City, with its transmitter located along Roosevelt Avenue, San Francisco del Monte, Quezon City here in the PHILIPPINES. As DANZE MUZIC ZONE, the station concentrated more
on Dance Music Genre that included RAP and HIP HOP. After POWER105 changed format in 1991, Legendary DZBM DJ "HARRY NOLAN" also became a part of 89DMZ DJ rosters as "JELLY BEAN". Well, It was nice to hear his voice again on radio and I personally thought that he would be the one hosting a NEW WAVE show if ever 89DMZ would be ready to feature a New Wave program back then when the playlist were HIP HOP, RNB, DANCE, and RAP MUSIC. Finally, the moment I've been waiting for on 89 DMZ did arrive!! A NEW WAVE radio show!! Here is my very own little tribute to this very influencial 89DMZ New Wave Radio Program called "WAVE180" here in MANILA during the 90s when ALTERNATIVE ROCK from both FOREIGN and PINOY ARTISTS ruled the Radio Airwaves.


This 90s Legendary MANILA NEW WAVE radio show was born wayback 1994 and was hosted by Andy Santillian aka. "THE UNBEATABLE" who is also considered as one of the pioneers of this musical genre back in the early 80s at CUTE102 before it became WXB102. He also worked at RK 96 (now known as LITEROCK) together with Inggo aka. "Morning Man" of XB's "Request Round-Up" in the early 80s. Good thing I was able to dig up a photo of "THE UNBEATABLE" in my Vaults even though it's not good in quality at least it would help spice up again my blogpost. He was also the usual station voice over at the TV station RPN CHANNEL 9. Well, I guess my KABAYANS would remember this. Hmmmp!! Unforgetable "THE UNBEATABLE" voice I may say. WAVE180 definitely has influenced a lot of youngsters back then to the so-called NEW WAVE GENRE. Personally, I consider WAVE180 as a very instrumental radio program in bringing back NEW WAVE on MANILA's airwaves even though there were a lot of RETRO RADIO programs that emerged in the decade of the 90s. So why WAVE180? It's 180minutes of New Wave Music and It's subgenres right smack on the FM dial which was broadcast EVERY SUNDAYS 9am-12nn. YUP!! That's equivalent to 3 long hours of NEW WAVE MUSIC indeed!! Some youngsters even thought that this kind of music was very new not knowing It was already a RETRO thing. WAVE180 is a part of 89DMZ's RETRO PROGRAMMING every SUNDAYS which was called "SUNDAY GOLD DANCE". If you're an avid follower of 89DMZ, you'll definitely recall the station's EASTER SUNDAY Music Mixes. Very timely blogpost? I also remember THE UNBEATABLE's advertisement of one of WAVE180's primary Sponsors "BIZARRE Boutique". "BIZARRE....IF YOU DARE TO BE DIFFERENT". Hmmmp!! An AD inspired by XB? Wheew!! That's MEMORIES INDEED!! The success of the show within a year and a half gave WAVE180 an extended extra hour so that means It's 8am-12nn but the title remained the same. I think It should already be called WAVE240 because of that extra 60minutes. So what do you think KABAYANS? He He He!! According to THE UNBEATABLE there were a lot of request to extend the length of the show. Hmmmp!! That's what you call craving!! Ha Ha Ha!! In late 1997, the show schedule was changed to every MONDAYS but still 4 hours of New Wave Music which was 6am-10am. By late 1998 the impact of WAVE180 was waning already and so it was brought back to SUNDAYS and it just disappeared in 1999. WAVE180 was revived in 2001 with former DMZ jocks hosting the show but it just flipped out into oblivion.


I was able to drop by WAVE180 and met "THE UNBEATEABLE" twice. The first time was wayback 1997 with my friends and the second and last time was back in 1999 when I claimed my ADVANCE SCREENING MOVIE TICKETS for the movie RONIN which starred "ROBERT DE NIRO". Well, I also won these tickets shown on the photo on a contest on WAVE180 via a question raised by "THE UNBEATABLE" that goes like this "Who were the artists that were featured on the song "GETTING AWAY WITH IT" by "ELECTRONIC"? That's BERNARD SUMNER of NEW ORDER, JOHNNY MARR of THE SMITHS and special participation of NEIL TENNANT of THE PETSHOP BOYS. Nice line up don't you think? I guess ROBERT DE NIRO WAS WAITING for me. TALKING ITALIAN? We better ask BANANARAMA about it. He He He!!


THE RAILWAY CHILDREN, THE ALARM, LOTUS EATERS

So what kind of music does WAVE180 plays? Of course, It's NEW WAVE PINOY FLAVOR!! It included ARTISTS and SONGS from the age of WXB102, DZBM POWER105, and NU107. Bands like THE RAILWAY CHILDREN, THE ALARM, and LOTUS EATERS to name a few were regulars on the playlist. There's even a twist on what you could hear on WAVE180 because this was the time when the 90s Alternative Music was booming around the world. YUP!! THE UNBEATABLE even included the Extended Dance Version of "WHAT'S UP" by "4 NONBLONDES" ,"DREAMS" by "THE CRANBERRIES", "LEMON TREE" by "FOOLS GARDEN" on It's playlist. Wheeew!! WAVE180 was also the first one to introduce in MANILA obscure 80s bands like "LOW LIFE" by playing their song entitled "RAMIFIED" and "TREEBOUND STORY" by playing their "FOREVER GREEN" song. BMX BANDITS version of a LOUIS ARMSTRONG classic song "WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD" was an exclusive on the show. This was the time when the famous cigarrette commercial of SEVEN STARS LITE was very popular here in MANILA because of the original song from Louie Armstrong was the song background. Now my memory banks is filling up. He He He!! Actually, I consider WAVE180 as the last on my list if your'e talking about ranking the NEW WAVE Radio Shows that evolved after the XB,BM, and NU ERA. Not really on the deeper side of NEW WAVE comparing to CLUB RETRO(started in 1997) and LITEWAVE(started in 1999) but It made an impact for PINOY WAVERS and even the 90s youngsters back then. The MAJOR INGREDIENT of the show? Well, I guess It's their EXTENDED, REMIX, 12inch versions of the songs being played. The show even have their own kind of versions of these Extended Versions!! The INDIE SERIES which I have featured here in my blog before namely "AND GOD CREATED INDIE". "THE RISE OF INDIE", and "WAR OF THE INDIES" were also influenced by WAVE180. I'm still looking for a copy of "THE LAST OF THE INDIEPENDENTS" which was considered as the last of It's CD series.


LOW LIFE

TREEBOUND STORY


BMX BANDITS


THE CRANBERRIES

FOOLS GARDEN

I was really digging up my vaults to look for any written information about 89DMZ's WAVE180 but to no avail. But instead, I got this one page 89DMZ black and white magazine advertisement of the station which was popular as the DANZE MUZIC ZONE. This AD just included the station's radio program schedules and the photos of their DJs which included the LATE FRANCIS MAGALONA as "The Mouth". Unfortunately, It doesn't include any infos on WAVE180 so I have to make my very own BLOGPOST TRIBUTE to this great Legendary NEW WAVE RADIO SHOW of 89DMZ.

WAVE180 CDs

And now we're heating it up with this blogpost of mine because I'll be featuring the ENTIRE WAVE180 CD SERIES that was released due to the success of the show. Another PHILIPPINE Bootleg CD? Well, It's a great bootleg I may say back then. He He He!! A BOOTLEG that was BOOTLEGGED again so that it would be affordable. Definitely this CD SERIES was INSPIRED by 89DMZ's WAVE180 and no doubt about it. The FIRST WAVE180 CD was released here in MANILA back in 1998 entitled: "Wave 180 - Where it All Began" when the said show popularity was beginning to drain down and this was courtesy by YOUNG GODS RECORDS. Then the SECOND VOLUME which was a follow-up was entitled"Wave 180 Book 2" which is a 2-CD package released by HIDE AND SEEK RECORDS. Hmmmp!! Very interesting Record Labels don't you think? Then, MG Records re-released the 1st CD and re-titled it "British Wave-180: The Power Mix" Then the LAST CD was entitled "Wave-180-S (The Singles Collection)". I wasn't able to complete the entire series so I asked for reinforcement and we are fortunate that my buddy bingbong has the entire series to share it for us here on "The Doctor Is In". YUP you got it right, my pal bingbong UPLOADED all his WAVE180 CD SERIES for us to enjoy and remember the MUZIC of WAVE180. CHEERS and ENJOY THE MUZIC EVERYONE!! THANKS bingbong for sharing these stuffs!!

Btw, all the CDs doesn't run for 180minutes okay. I've indicated the running time and the file size of each CD so that you'll have an idea how long it would play. "WAVE180: Where It All Began" and "WAVE180 Book 2" are all NEW WAVE MEGAMIXES. This is the mother of NEW WAVE MIXES just before we drown on the current flooding of NEW WAVE MIXES around the blogosphere. MEGAMIX record bar in SM MEGAMALL was also very popular during those times. NICE CD TRACKLIST!! PINOY WAVER's delight!!


I HOPE YOU GUYS ENJOYED MY VERY OWN LITTLE TRIBUTE TO 89DMZ's WAVE180!! "The Dr. Stirring Rhod Way"!!

If you have your own memories of the show do share it to us.

THANKS EVERYONE FOR THE CONTINUED SUPPORT OF "The Doctor Is In"!! DEFINITELY, THE DOCTOR IS STILL IN!!


"The Doctor Is In" and WAVE180!!
It's......UNBEATABLE!!

Wow- I love your blog- By the way, I was in thet Fra Lippo Lippi Concert in Folk's Art in 1988. My one college year in UST Manila.

Anyway, baka pwede po nating ayusin yung links ng

WAVE 180 Book 2 Disc 2 (89:31)and
and
WAVE 180 Book 1 Disc 2 (89:31)

di ko po ma download kasi- wala raw dun yung files.

Love IT!

More new wave- more fun.

TMK Boi said...

Mabuhay!

Great Blog- I was amazed to even hear the 1988 Fra Lippo Lippi concert sa Folk Arts. I was there during my one college year sa ST before going back to the US. Memorable- Keno opened for them- he sang "Father Figure" tapos dance number with "Chains of Love" by Erasure.

Anyway, baka naman po pwedeng i re upload yung WAVE 180 Book 2 Disc 1 WAVE 180 Book 2 Disc 2 - Kasi broken na po yung link.

I will subscribe in this blog. I also have tons of New Wave stuff- baka pwedeng i share.

DrStirringRhod said...

Hi TMK Boi!! Thanks for dropping by my blog and also for the blog appreciation. :-) I'll try to re-upload it on my free time but It will take time okay because these files are really large. Stay tune nalang!! Btw, nice to know that you were also on that FRA LIPPO LIPPI Manila Concert. YUP!! Keno was the FRONT-ACT of that historic concert here in MANILA. :-) Feel free to share also your stuffs as long as I don't have it on my vaults. I'm looking for this Philippine bootleg CD entitled "The Last Of The Indiependents and I wonder if you happen you have it so that we could complete the INDIE SERIES here in my blog. That's the last of the puzzle. :-) THANKS AGAIN KABAYAN!!

Doc, is it possible to buy a copy of all these cds? i'm desperate! Thanks!

DrStirringRhod said...

Hi "theesire"!! Are you referring to the Original WAVE 180 CDs? If so, then these CDs are Out Of Print already and the chances of buying them all is really hard. THANKS for dropping by my blog.

corics said...

galing ng collection! incredible. salamat sa pag share! (pero doc, sana active pa yung mga links)

DrStirringRhod said...

THANKS Corics for dropping a line!! Sorry but I cannot re-upload the CDs again because I was informed that the same files here were used by other websites without giving due credit on my blog.

Here is a story which may not have heard.

Before Wave 180 was conceptualized. Part of the group, before Music PSE was incorporated, was close to Harry Nolan over at BM in front of Sienna College, we partied with this dude ... beautiful voice, no wonder he became the voice of PBA. Thanks to my good friend DJ Bobking, we also catered to 99.5RT during its transition to indie music, i think that was back in 1989 ... I remember bringing vinyl records direct from NY every 2 weeks. Goldwin Blue was the musical director then ... much respect to him, very knowledgeable. Btw, The Ghost was also in RT then (before transferring to NU), he was also a former DJ of 102XB ... I remember showing him a record of the Pixies and he flipped, listened to the record and RT was off the aire for a few seconds! haha

Anyways, what you failed to mention...

Tiny and his wife was the powerhouse behind Wave180's success (along with Unbeatable), it was his vinyl and cd collection that you heard in the airwaves. Most of his collection was amassed from england where he lived for several years. Tiny and Unbeatable (Andy) where friends from the old XB days.
Most of the collector item vinyls where cleaned and remastered by two very talented vinyl DJ's and converted to digital disc formats which was then played over the airwaves for your pleasure.
When Music PSE shut down its doors in 2007 or 2008, all ties with DMZ was severed because the new company and it's management was relocated outside of Luzon.

When DMZ changed management, there was dispute that errupted and Unbeatable had to move on. We haven't heard from him since!

DrStirringRhod said...

THANKS vl2k for the added info!! Btw, I didn't fail to mention TINY and his collection, please read the blogpost again because I've included Tiny in this article courtesy of Wavemaster. :-)
