Saying goodbye to NU 107.5

I went to NU on their last night on air. I came alone and was greeted by a big crowd which just got bigger as the end came nearer. It was a night of mixed emotions: mournful because of the death of a “loved one” but with a general feeling of solidarity for the love of the music and support for the radio station. There was also the delight in seeing old faces and making new friends. I was expecting a whole lot of tears from the people there but there were plenty of dry faces, maybe too many. I know they were also in pain. Maybe the bravado was just for show. I cried during the final song though. Ang Huling El Bimbo. It was the perfect ending song eventhough I was hoping for Enjoy The Silence. Somehow, the Eheads song captured everything.
