:: j-pop deprivation - FM96.3 FM ::

One of the source of being in tune with the Japanese music chart used to be from the international radio channel FM96.3 right here in Singapore.

Sad to say, the harsh economic setback in the recent years has cause a significant reduction in the Japanese program over the radio. Now, they are only available from 7.00 am to 9.30 am - much of which are related to the news and information meant for the dwindling Japanese community in Singapore.

Even their J-pop chart in their website is pathetic. It was last updated on 3rd January 2003!

Luckily for me, I can always count on the Japanese greatest chart...the Oricon for my J-pop updates.

But I am sadden by the demise of the once-ever popular J-pop chart countdown on 96.3FM on every Thursday nite. It was my source of J-pop salvation because it was so close and home.
