History

The station was launched in 1987 as Radyo Maynila (the brand was previously used at 918 kHz during the Marcos regime prior to EDSA Revolution) under the helm of former actor and BBS-PBS interim director Jose Mari Gonzales. Gonzales ordered that all BBS radio station will give their respective identities including Radyo ng Bayan (918 kHz), Sports Radio (738 kHz) and DZRP-Radyo Pagasa.[citation needed]

In the late-1990s/early 2000s, the station was reformatted as a cultural-oriented station under the name Radyo Magasin.

Between 2007 and 2009, DZRM aired the Spanish cultural magazine show, Filipinas, Ahora Mismo.

On September 17, 2017, Radyo Magasin permanently went off-air for the last time. Its programming merged with DZSR's programming on Radyo Pilipinas Dos, which was launched the next day.[1] The defunct station's audio streaming space, meanwhile, was then converted to DWFO's audio portal on November 1 after it started a series of tests broadcasts.
