Magic 89.9 is a Mandaluyong-based Top 40 and AC format station owned by Quest Braodcasting Inc. Launched on Feb 14, 1986 on Valentine’s Day, the first broadcasts were carried from Philippine Communications Center Building (PHILCOMCEN) located in Pasig City. Bernie Buenaseda headed DWTM-FM with a staff of 10. It opened just 11 days before Corazon Aquino was sworn in as the President of Filipinos after the revolution. The transmission was expanded to 24 hours in 1988-89. Love Notes hosted by Joe D’Mango, a counseling program launched as gimmick turned out to be a huge success among office workers in late 80s. It was later aired on ABC-5 before getting transferred to its sister Wave 89.1 in 2001. Studios of Magic 89.1 were relocated from Pasig City facility to Paragon Plaza Building in Mandaluyong on Nov 29, 1999 where it was accompanied by sister 99.5 RT (now 99.5 Play FM) and a couple others. Trends were set with the launch of Friday Magic Madness and Saturday Slam; the programs would play hits from 1980s and 1990s.
