The final sign off as NU 107 (DWNU-FM 107.5).
Footage outside the radio studio.
Note: On the final day of NU 107 on November 7, speakers were set up outside the station's studio where a large crowd had gathered, carrying candles as a sign of support. The crowd, which included musicians and supporters, stayed at NU 107's studios at Ortigas Center, Pasig. Some of them wrote on a freedom wall their sadness and memories, as well as their wishes for the station and its staff. The final edition of "In the Raw" had rock bands Urbandub and Itchyworms playing live music. The disc jockeys openly wept as they thanked the supporters during the station's final hour. Hermosisima was the last person on the microphone with the final words: "This has been NU 107, the Philippines' one and only Home of NU Rock. This is NU 107, we are signing off", with The Eraserheads' "Ang Huling El Bimbo" as the final song of the station. The crowd that gathered outside, sad as they were, joined in the singing, and there was loud chanting afterward. NU 107 signed-off on November 8, 12:05 a.m, after the usual sign-off notice and "Lupang Hinirang", the Philippine national anthem, was sung by everyone gathered in the station and outside the building premises especially the final line of the anthem, which was sung very loudly. Footage of this can now be found on YouTube as well as on other internet sites, as well as commentary and analysis of that final day of broadcast.
