History[edit]

Diamond 95.5 (1987-1992)[edit]

From 1987 to 1992, the station was launched under the brand Diamond 95.5. It played mainstream music.

Pinoy Radio DM 95.5 (1992-2002)[edit]

In 1992, it changed its name to Pinoy Radio DM 95.5 (ninety-five-five). Its format featured OPM. It was also one of the first radio stations with DJs that spoke a mix of Filipino and English. It also launches the Pinoy Music Awards where OPM artists and songs are recognized. The station lasted for 10 years until it went off the air in 2002.

DWDM 95.5 (2002-2007)[edit]

In 2002, it was rebranded DWDM 95.5 as an easy listening station. It played automated oldies music with few commercials, similar to DWSS 1494. It was called Dazzling Music as it was one of the 3 easy listening stations in Metro Manila along with 96.3 WRocK (now 96.3 Easy Rock), 97dot9 Home Radio & 103.5 K-Lite.

It ceased transmission on January 2007 to upgrade its transmitter facilities. In May 2007, it briefly returned in the airwaves on a lower bandwidth and limited broadcast hours (9 am - 1 pm). It lasted until June 8, 2007. Its format was carried over to DZEC 1062.

Pinas FM 95.5 (2011-present)[edit]

In April 8, 2011, 95.5 returned to the airwaves in a test broadcast. At that time, it moved its studios from Maligaya Bldg. II in EDSA to New Era University Barn Building (currently used for INCRadio DZEM 954) . On May 16, Pinas FM 95.5 (ninety-five-five) was launched. It began its broadcast at 4:00 am with Newsic, followed by some of the DJs from the Pinoy Radio roster. On February 2013, the station studios transferred to the then newly built EBC Building in #25 Central Avenue.

Last April 2014, Pinas FM launched their newest theme song, entitled "Pinas FM: Tahanan ng OPM" featuring Davey Langit, Aikee and Chadleen Lacdo-o.
