President PNOY in support of OPM or Original Pilipino Music pushed for the strict implementation of Executive Order Number 255. The Executive Order requires all radio stations with musical format programs to play at least 4 OPM songs in 1 hour.
The presence of foreign music has been alarming in the past few years as observed by many people. Not many Filipinos listen to OPM anymore because of easy access to foreign music or tracks with the use of the internet. With the steadfast implementation of EO 255, the love of Filipinos for their own music will be enliven through radio station broadcast and listening.
The full text of the Executive Order is as follows:
