Radio Japan's 60th Anniversary

Dear Radio Friends,

Today I am asking your actions regarding our club's 60th anniversary.

As I mentined in our bulletin, our anniversary programs have been aired from some radio stations in the world. My interview was aired from KBS World, CRI Peking, Voice of Russia
Moscow and IRIB, Teheran. All of these were in Japanese. Some of you may remember, I was regularly on the air from Radio Japan a couple of years ago.
Now they have a program called "Friends around the World" every Sunday. NHK home page says Friends Around the World is a program that is designed to connect more of Radio Japan listeners around the world. We read your e-mails and letters, have interviews, and cover other interesting topics based on your requests.
So what are you waiting for? Your messages, comments, questions and even song requests are always welcome !
Please click on Contact Us at the bottom of the page and send us a message.
You can listen to the program from NHK Web site at

Please listen to the program and write to Radio Japan and ask about Japan Short Wave Club which is celebrating 60th anniversary, amazing record for the radio hobbiests. Hope NHK responds your request and may remember me and ask me to show up as a quest.
