RADIO TOKYO

Hajimemashite! RADIO TOKYO is starting soon!

I’ve joined the student radio station at Swinburne – 3SSR. I’m planning to start a radio show that I actually tried to do at Monash, but unfortunately their radio broadcasting facilities were non-existent at the time.

RADIO TOKYO logoSo I’m starting RADIO TOKYO at Swinburne! I plan to do a weekly 90 minute show featuring Japanese music. Japan has the second biggest music industry in the world but there is little Japanese music on the airwaves in Australia. Obviously language is a concern, but I’ve found that music is equally enjoyable even if the lyrics can’t be understood. Besides, quite a lot of Japanese artists will sing at least partially in English.

I’d also like to make a gig guide of all the Japanese-related events happening in Australia (but Melbourne in particular). Basically, the show’s content will be as the tag line says: “Japanese music, news, gigs and reviews”!

First show will be soon! It’s a little nerve-racking but mainly exciting! I can broadcast on the internet with 3SSR so I’m looking forward to having interstate and overseas friends tuning in.

Head over to the official RADIO TOKYO website. There’s also a MySpace page and a Last.fm profile. And stay tuned for the new show!
