HistoryEdit

When Kool 106 first went on-air in February 1992 (together with ABC-5) with radio veteran George Mercardo at the helm, its format was Hot Adult Contemporary, showcasing music from the 70s and 80s, alongside Top 40 hits back then. In 1995, when Marc Gorospe assumed the Station Manager post, Kool 106 flipped into a mainstream format playing mostly pop hits. Between 1999 & 2001 it became 106.7 Kool, that plays mostly foreign song especially R&B with a very few OPM hits. In 2001, the station went off the air for one month and completely changed its format. It became known as Ritmo Latino RIO 106.7, the first radio station in the country that played Latin music.In April 2002, Kool 106 resurrected as a Masa station with its format playing mainstream pop and OPM music. During the relaunch, Kool 106 and ABC-5 teamed up to produce a 30-minute interactive music show called "Kool on Kam", originally aired as a hookup with Kool 106 where the jocks can now be seen on TV with music videos. Kool on Kam moved to a primetime slot and increased to 1 hour in the radio hookup on ABC-5 where the jocks interviews with its featured celebrity of the week and the show launched its segments. Kool on Kam lasted for a year and a half. The station also has its first ever countdown separated where the top 10 OPM songs and top 10 foreign songs are aired at noontime and 6pm respectively on Sundays. Kool 106 has also developed its "By Request" program aired weekdays 9pm-12mn and Sundays where listeners can call and ask for their requested song. Kool 106 as a masa station lasted for 2 years.In April 2004, 6 months after Tonyboy Cojuangco took over the management of ABC, 106.7 was reformatted as Dream FM. The station aired in a smooth jazz format added up with R&B, Soul, Bossa Nova and House.After MediaQuest Holdings, Inc. acquired TV5 in 2010, Dream FM and its affiliate stations in other parts of the country remained under the Cojuangco management led by former ABC stockholder Anton Lagdameo. They became collectively known as the Dream FM Network, with TV5. On the other hand, MediaQuest manages Radyo5 92.3 News FM, owned by its sister company, Nation Broadcasting Corporation.Dream FM signed off at June 30, 2011 with the song, "Till We Meet Again". It continues to broadcast intermittently online through Hayag.Throughout the last week of June, plugs were aired on 106.7 with the statement "Si Pangga, Dreaming!", where the slogan of Energy FM Pangga and Dream FM's name is used. This is a temporary partnership between Cojuangco and UBSI, which took part-ownership of the station.Energy FM, a Hot AC / CHR station that used to air on 91.5 transferred to 106.7 on July 1, 2011. Its programs and DJs premiered on July 4. Pipoy Palaboy (formerly known as Kenji) is the only Dream FM DJ who joined the Energy FM staff.Energy FM also has a radio segment called Saved on Energy FM, which plays christian music of praise and worship to God. It is run by Becca Music Inc., a Christian events company. It first aired on February 6, 2011 (while Energy FM was still on 91.5) and airs every Sunday 8pm to 12mn.
