DWDM (95.5 FM), branded as Pinas FM 95.5, is a radio station, airing an all-OPM format in Metro Manila. It is owned by Eagle Broadcasting Corporation, and is the official radio station of the Organisasyon ng mga Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM). The station's studio and transmitter are located at EBC Bldg., No. 25 Central Ave., Diliman, Quezon City. The station operates regularly from Monday to Sunday from 4:00 AM to 12:00 MN. Since 2015, there was no broadcast breaks during the Summer Break (known by most non-Iglesia Ni Cristo members as the Holy Week) from Thursday to Saturday and continues broadcasting OPM songs due to its popularity.


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 as DWDM 95.5 (pronounced as "ninety-five-point-five") as a fully automated station. It featured well-crafted music from the '70s up to the latest music hits with less talk (ie. no DJs) and less commercials. It was branded as "Dazzling Music", and also adapted the station's slogan "Feel Your Music".

It ceased transmission in 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). However, it went off the air again on June 8, 2007.

Pinas FM 95.5 (2011–present)[edit]

On April 8, 2011, 95.5 FM returned to the airwaves as the station conducted its test broadcast for a month. At that time, it moved its studios from Maligaya Bldg. II in EDSA to New Era University Barn Building. On May 16, Pinas FM 95.5 (with the frequency nomenclature read as 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. Upon its launching, the music content included foreign tracks similar to most masa stations in the country. On February 12, 2013, along with DZEC Radyo Agila 1062 and Net 25, the studio was transferred from the Barn Building (where INC's sister station DZEM 954 kHz moved to on May 10) to the newly built EBC Building in Quezon City.

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

Since October 5, 2014, Pinas FM made the boldest move as the station became the first and only FM station in the country that plays only Original Pilipino Music, in support of the advocacy of promoting Filipino musical talent. Prior to this, the management slowly reduced (until it eventually abandoned playing) its foreign music content in order to fully transition into an all-OPM radio station. The single-core OPM music format was adopted by Viva Live Inc., which reformatted its radio stations as Halo Halo Radio in May 2017.
