Radio M host Tony Sarabia joins Jerome for another edition of Global Notes. This week they trace the evolution of Pinoy rock, which sprang up in the Philippines shortly after independence in the 1950s. Plus, Demetrio Maguigad, the co-founder of Chicago Pinoy band Bagwis tells us how the Filipino diaspora adopted Pinoy music, modernized it and made it their own.
