A Filipino International Radio

A visitor wanted to tell us about his new music site AFIRtayo.com. Take a look:

www.AFIRtayo.com (A Filipino International Radio) has been created with the purpose of “bridging all the international Filipino communities in order for them to have one voice.”

Listeners may ask this question: “What makes AFIRtayo.com different from all the other net radios?”

Aside from the kind of music that matches the liking of majority of the listeners, AFIRtayo.com makes you feel at home, not just because you are listening to music that suits your taste, but rather it helps you build a certain bond with all the other listeners through being able to communicate with them; every listener has a privilege to voice out his or her thoughts, feelings and opinions and be a part of a world-wide community of happy and expressive people. This site, although especially made for Filipinos, is not exclusively for Filipinos. People of every color and race are very much welcome to join this community!

Hey Fellow Filipinos,

I just want to flag a London-based band called FireFallDown for they have kindly asked me to message you all to promote their band and their upcoming London show. Two of the members of the band are actually pinoys (from Makati and Cabanatuan). So let’s show our warm support for them!

I was browsing through their site and their music is just incredible. You should visit:

They will also be doing a show (their last London show for the period!) on the 4th March at the Trinity Bar in Harrow (378-380 Station Road, Harrow, HA1 2DE).
