It has been only three months since Mandarin Radio (http://www.mandarinradio.com) was launched on the Live365 Internet Radio Network (http://www.live365.com), and already it has 13,000 listeners and ranks #9 among Asian stations.
The station is available free 24/7 and features current popular music from Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, and Singapore. Listeners see the song titles, artistsÂ names, and album information displayed in English (or pinyin). ÂI created the station as a place for people around the world to discover Chinese popular musicÂ, says Mandarin Radio founder, Rhys Ludlow. ÂIt is very difficult learn about modern Chinese music when one canÂt read Chinese. ItÂs like a big secret and it shouldnÂt be because the language is beautiful and the music is very accessible.Â
In addition to playing Mandarin songs from artists such as Jay Chou, A-Mei Chang, S.H.E., David Tao, Sun Yanzi, Elva Hsiao and Jolin Tsai, Mandarin Radio listeners also hear a few Asian songs that are so popular they have crossed over national boundaries.
The station offers two listening options, a free advertiser-supported stream and an ad-free stream for Live365 VIP subscribers. Both streams are 32K so even dialup users can listen.
Mandarin Radio is a sister station of http://www.PopGoesAsia.com
