Getting ready for our 10th Year Anniversary

Saturday, July 30th, 2016

Although the online radio started in 2005, it was in 2007 that this radio was born as RADIOPILIPINAS.  Hence on 2017, we will be celebrating our 10th year in the business, providing you with the best of Filipino Independent music 24 hours a day. In line with this we are currently upgrading our systems.  If you have noticed we have already moved to a newer server located in UK. We have increased our capability of accommodating more listeners. We have also optimized our streaming that will be at ease to stream even if you are using data connection on your mobile phones. We are also currently developing an android app as well as an ios app which is currently on Alpha testing stage. We will announce once it hits Beta stage and will invite selected few to try out the app ahead of others.  We also have new features on our site where you can request your songs. If it matches with the songs in our playlist, it will play two songs after what is currently playing. This will only work if the playlist is on autoDJ.  If a DJ is onboard live, you can request thru chat or directly on the DJ’s facebook. or you can also try our text hotline at 0921-8221822.

What keeps us excited is the up coming shows. We are currently preparing shows by several DJs which will showcase different concepts and different genres of music covering Independent Filipino music from all over the country. We have also been doing preparations for live streaming of gigs featuring live bands and solo artists. These include gigs in davao, iligan, cagayan de oro, zamboangga, cebu, tacloban, palawan, bicol, pampanga, la union, baguio, nueva viscaya and metro manila. Wouldn’t that be exciting?

We are moving to a new server with new IP address.

Thursday, March 28th, 2013

Please be advised that starting April 1, 2013 we will be using our new server and will be running on a new IP address. The old IP address will stop working starting on Mar 29, 2013. We will be offline during the lenten season. For those of you listening through our website, you will not notice the change as we have already updated the player. Same goes with those listening thru Nokia Internet Radio and on their installed Radiopilipinas toolbar.

But for those listening thru any other means or for those who catched us through internet radio listings, those listings takes time to be updated so we suggest that you go to this page http://cent3.serverhostingcenter.com/start/nabani00/ to download the pls file with the updated IP address and port.

Indiepinoy Reacts to statement of OPM Officer

Friday, February 11th, 2011

In a recent official statement released by indiepinoy to the press, the music company reacts to a statement of Dingdong Avanzado, corporate secretary of Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit. Mr Avanzado cited during the press launch of  Kulturang Lahi Inuuna Ko (KLIK), local songwriters are not creating original filipino music these days due to  the domination of foreign music in media and music market.  Indiepinoy disagrees with the statement by showing  more than a thousand artists in its network actively recording, distributing and performing original filipino music in the part two years. The statement of Mr. Avanzado shows a myopic point of view of the music industry according to Indiepinoy.

“How can these leaders get the support from the Filipino artists if they do not even know the real situation and do not recognize the existence of a large number of independent Filipino artists in the music industry. ” Nolit Abanilla, Indiepinoy president explains in its official statement.”

“The major players in the music industry should regain the trust from the large community of Filipino artists. And for this to happen, they should address the real issues of providing support to the real Filipino artist, giving them venues for their songs to be heared to a broader audience via existing commercial media, providing them proven effective distribution channels and other major machineries in the music industry. Only then can they realize the participation of the Filipino artist in their programs of developing the music industry in the country.” the statement concludes addressing its concerns to OPM.

Radiopilipinas tried to gather a counter reaction by Dingdong Avanzado and other officers of OPM but could not reach them as of press time. The entire Indiepinoy statement is posted in the Indiepinoy website at http://indiepinoymusic.com/blog/?p=37 and at its official facebook page.
