Joe D'Mango's Love Notes is a Philippine drama anthology series broadcast on IBC every Saturday evenings after Iskul Bukol and before Maya Loves Sir Chief, and is hosted by the love adviser Joe D'Mango. It premiered on January 24, 2014 and reaching its 3rd year in 2017. The program features weekly love stories through letter sending where Joe has been reading love notes and after it, he will give advice and the right song for the story.

Love Notes evolved into a television drama anthology from the well-loved 15-minute counseling program on radio with the same title, it airs on the FM radio station Magic 89.9 from August 1988 to February 23, 2001 when it moved to now-defunct Wave 891 (now known as 89 DMZ) from March 2, 2001 to 2008 and returned to Magic 89.9 as the original home from November 6, 2015 to March 11, 2016, it was aired every Friday from 10:15 to 10:30 a.m. with the replay at 7:00 to 7:15 p.m. as part of Friday Madness. This format also served as a template of drama anthologies aired on Philippine television.

It also became a movie that produced by Viva Films with the same title Love Notes: The Movie in 1995, a popular book and compiled as the pocketbook love stories.

The radio version (counselling program) of Love Notes continued to air on Friday (10:15-10:30 am with the replay at 7:00-7:15 pm) even as the show's TV counterpart (drama anthology) was being produced and taped.

Each episode, Joe opens the show by saying "Hello and welcome to another episode of Love Notes" and he began the letter sender story by saying "Dear Joe…."


After 16 years hiatus, they saw the rebirth and made the return of the longest-running drama anthology on Philippine television. From the well-known radio show in the 80s and 90s, Love Notes now on its new home IBC as the returning drama anthology premiered on January 25, 2014, pitted against ABS-CBN's MMK and GMA's Magpakailanman which has been airing also every Saturday nights since 2008 and 2012. As part of IBC's Panalo Weekend block, airing every Saturday as it marks the return of love adviser Joe D'Mango as the host and narrator in a tradition of reading letters. Each episode based on the letter sender's different love stories sent by viewers, Joe gave friendly advice on metters of the heart to viewers who just send letters.

They bringing back the one that started it all in August 1988, Love Notes came about as a result of numerous letters as they received on the top-rating radio program on Magic 89.9. Now, on its 27th year, Magic 89.9, the original home of Love Notes, brings back the classic favorite on the airwaves as the household name because of the advice he gives to his listeners.
