Led by Marcie Taylor, NU107, the "Home of NU Rock", held a mini-reunion over Facebook on Sunday (05/03) morning.
Taylor started the show with a shoutout to photographer Eddie Boy Escudero who recently posted old photos of NU107's days and "kinda kicked this [reunion] off, this super nostalgia trip."
NU107 mainstays Claire Miranda, Ron Titular and Joyce Ann Burton, Myrene Academia, Charlie Ysmael, and Thelma "Joey" Bowlen, plus special guest, filmmaker Quark Henares, all joined in the hour-long conversation - with fans occasionally commenting about their favorite radio shows, throwing in some song requests, and even sending in photos of NU107 memorabilia.
The group ended up telling their origin stories and how they got their NU107 jobs, talking each other through technical difficulties, and sharing tv shows they're binging right now, as well as new music recommendations.

"We were powered by the listeners. We had these really young people who just loved the music that we played," Joyce Ann "Jaedee" Burton shares while sporting an NU107 baseball cap.
NU107 gave Filipino rock music a home on the airwaves, as well as recognition via the famed NU107 Rock Awards.
The radio station ended its 23-year run in November 2010 and signed off with its last song, the Eraserheads' 'Ang Huling El Bimbo'.
