Asia Pop 40 launched in the Philippines

Asia Pop 40, the first regional weekly chart countdown radio show produced in Asia specifically for Asian radio, has now launched in the Philippines on Monster Radio.

Each week Asia Pop 40 counts down the most popular downloads on iTunes across Asia, showcasing iTunes charts from multiple markets to produce a pan-regional radio programme.

Asia Pop 40’s launch into the Philippines brings the total number of markets where Asia Pop 40 can be heard to in excess of 20 across SEA, Asia Radio Today reports.

Creator & Executive Producer Rob Graham said that for the English version of the show, the Philippines represents one of Asia’s most fanatical music markets, saying, “We are thrilled to be launching Asia Pop 40 in the Philippines with Monster. Monster Radio is an iconic Filipino radio brand and airs the most cutting-edge radio programming in the country.”

“The Asia Pop 40 chart is quickly becoming the main reference source for what’s hot in Asian music for the world’s music media. And because AP40 is made in Asia for Asia, this makes the Asia Pop 40 chart truly relevant for Asian audiences by being Asia’s first-ever official regional chart.”

The show is hosted by Dom Lau who established his music credentials as a VJ for five years on FOX International Channel’s music network, Channel [V].

The show is three hours in length and apart from showcasing the latest music, it will also feature latest movie reviews, albums reviews, artist interviews and competitions.
