It was August 3, 1993 when Bombo Radyo Philippines, the Number One Radio Network in the country, introduced to the people of Davao City their FM wing known only as DXFX 96.3. During those times, each FM station only caters a single music genre.
In mid-90’s, the Network decided to reformat their FM wing to cater to all walks of life and musical preference. Quarter Mix program of mellow and dance hits, all mellow program, all rock program and special Sunday programming were introduced after naming all their FM station as Star FM. This format became the template of FM programming after other networks and stations followed it.
