Home Radio 97.9 DWQZ FM

DWQZ, broadcasting as 97dot9 Home Radio, is the flagship FM station of Aliw Broadcasting Corporation, based in Citystate Center, Shaw Blvd., Pasig City, Philippines. Operates for 24 Hours and one of the active stations during Holy Week of each year, replacing its regular format to some words from the Bible and Reflections every hour in between songs playing.


Home Radio follows an easy listening program format. Soft adult contemporary music make up the majority of songs in the master playlist of this fully automated radio station. This format was introduced in 2000 by Nestor De Guzman Doria, now Home Radio FM Network Program Director. This format was an immediate success, increasing Home Radio's ratings and earning the title "#1 Easy Listening Station" in Metro Manila in a matter of Six Months. This format was then adapted and implemented to the provincial stations.


Being fully automated, Home Radio has canned spiels and liners. This includes time checks, song sponsorships and other announcements. Since 2009, it has a few female DJs on board, following the less talk, more music style. The station, which projects a female image, launched the first fully automated 24-hour disc jockey Jackie (Lannie Chan), last October 16, 2006.

Despite being a non-entity FM station, Home Radio delivers live hourly news updates & traffic reports from Veteran radio DJ Rick Spade (Frederick S. Billano) is the male Imaging Voice and Production Specialist.
