J-MELO was terrible, the hosts are so wooden. It was a countdown of the top 10 requested artists on the J-MELO site, and consisted of 90% boybands!!! I never realised the state of Japanese chart music was so bad.

Anyway, you can request songs here -

How about this, we all request Tommy. Do it as many times as you want. Make sure to add a picture of yourself and I will tell you if any of us get on the show!!

You know, I kind of expected something like that to happen. Boyband-itis is a terrible disease.

Cool, nice one Starryed. I may have to start Sky+ing J-MELO again just to see if you appear. I stopped watching it because the presenters made it all most impossible to watch.

My fave programmes from this channel are NIHON-GO QUICK LESSON & Sense of Japan. These have been very usefull on the run up to my holiday and they are very funny too. Plus Koyuki rocks Wink

Oh, don't count your chicken's yet Sneaky, I think I made a mistake. I put my name as Starryeyed, but I selected groups not songs.. Shocked

I mean, do they play songs from a while ago because, February 6 has been quiet, Heavenly 6 didn't release any singles from her new album, and the Brilliant Green are in well hibernation at the moment. Do they only play the latest songs? latest groups? Alittle confused.

NIHON-GO QUICK LESSON & Sense of Japan.

Agreed, it will be good for your holiday too. Don't forget we all want to see some pics here on the forum when you do come back Smile Do have a nice time when you go to Japan.

NHK radio is also putting on a weekly English JPop show. They play only 5 to 6 songs a week, but its usually not boy bands.

You can download the show here:

BTW: Boy bands and girl bands are currently huge all over East Asia.

It is mainly new songs that they play, but sometimes they do feature artists and will look back at some older songs.
