Free Radio Guide Has
World’s MegaCities Covered
The online PAL Radio Guide covers seven of the World’s 10 Biggest MegaCities and eight of the World’s 10 Fastest Growing Cities of Tomorrow says the Radio Heritage Foundation, which hosts the free radio station guide at www.radioheritage.com.
Responding to the current TIME magazine cover story ‘The World at 7 Billion’, a spokesman for the Radio Heritage Foundation says it’s easy to search the PAL Radio Guide and find details of thousands of radio stations for free.
Of the TIME Top 10 World’s Biggest MegaCities, the PAL Radio Guide covers #1 Tokyo, #2 Seoul, #5 Mumbai, #6 Jakarta, #8 Delhi, #9 Shanghai and #10 Manila.
Collectively, these seven megacities are home to over 142 million people who rely on radio for entertainment, news and information.
The PAL Radio Guide also covers the TIME Worlds’ Top 10 Fastest Growing Cities of Tomorrow with #1 Delhi, #2 Dhaka, #4 Mumbai, #5 Karachi, #7 Kolkata, #8 Shanghai, #9 Lahore and #10 Manila all included.
Introduced over 50 years ago, the PAL Radio Guide is the only guide of its kind based on widespread monitoring of radio dials across the entire Asia-Pacific region. It is hosted at www.radioheritage.com, regularly updated and available free as a worldwide community service.
The Radio Heritage Foundation says that radio continues to be incredibly popular in all the megacities, whether delivered online, through mobile phones or the more traditional radio receiver.
It expects to continue expanding its coverage of the megacity radio scene as the megacities themselves grow in the future.
Radio Heritage Foundation is a non-profit foundation that connects radio, popular culture and heritage at www.radioheritage.com.
