Mandarin Radio was launched on Live365 in 2002, at the time it was the only radio station dedicated to presenting Mandarin Pop music for English readers.
All the song and artist information was translated to English and displayed with the stream. At one time it was the most popular Asian music station on iTunes Radio and Live365 and the most popular international radio station on Live365.
It’s sister station, Pop Goes Asia, was launched in 2001 playing a mix of songs in Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Cantonese, Thai and even some Vietnamese and Malay.
In 2012 we discontinued our program on Live365 due to increasing royalty costs and reporting requirements.
Our mission to share Mandarin (and other Asian music) moved to Twitter where we periodically shared songs with our followers.
In early January 2016, we were informed that Live365 had discontinued service and most of the stations were moving to Radionomy. Upon investigation we decided to relaunch Mandarin Radio.
As of 1/1/2016 we are still tweaking and hope to officially launch soon.
