Arashi songs popular in disaster area

Requests for positive Arashi songs are proving to be popular in an area worst-affected by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, reports Nikkan Sports

It has been reported radio station FM Sendai, in Miyagi prefecture, had been getting about 20 song requests every day before the earthquake, but now they are getting 300 to 400 requests.  About 40 per cent of these requests are for Johnny’s songs, with Arashi being the most popular.

The group’s songs “きっと大丈夫 (Kitto Daijyobu)” and “Believe” are some of the more popular songs, and are reportedly helping earthquake and tsunami victims become more optimistic.

FM Sendai will continue to broadcast its shows across the area.  Although songs were not played on air for more than two days following the earthquake, the station had started a half-report, half-music schedule this week.

While there had been a debate about whether music should be played at all following the earthquake, several musicians who had connections with the station’s director had tweeted on his twitter feed saying they wanted their songs played on air if it could help cheer up victims.
