Strengths and criticisms[edit]

From strictly slow songs, the strong point of all Love Radio shows today has been its plain and simple grassroots entertainment. The jocks are criticized by mostly educated listeners of higher income groups for their cheap jokes, senseless banter, and even its absurd and green jock names.

A plus factor is the signal quality. DZMB's signal involves a quadraphonic (4 channel) stereo sound that is heavy on the bass side of music, giving it an overwhelming presence. It's a sure come-on even for radios of relatively weak quality, ensuring its popularity.
