As I write this, my tweet stream is populated by NU107. This is the final moments of that radio station in the Philippines broadcasting rock music. As reports go, it will switch to pop music.
My friends are finding it difficult to say goodbye to something so much a part of their lives, so much a part of them growing up.
I grew up loving music. Rock too is close to my heart. But in all honestly, I couldn’t relate to the tweet stream. I never listened to FM radio growing up. It seem so foreign to me.
It can’t be good when rock and roll goes a way.
“So, did the man win?” I asked a friend. “People are mourning an end of an era. If it doesn’t reach critical mass, if it doesn’t reach pop levels, it will die.”
May God save rock and roll.
