About Michiko Ota

I guess the bug bit me when watching tapes of Ranma 1/2. It wasn't the anime, it was the music. I then started to look further into this genre and then I noticed, there is some really good music. Far fetched from any "toon" in America. After a year of broadcasting 4 streams of anime and cartoon, I felt it was time to expand beyond anime, this is how Hardcore J came to be. You will find mainstream songs from the same people who sing the anime songs on my former stations Hardcore 1 & 2 as well as music from current and recent JPOP charts. Hardcore J was rebranded as J1 in the summer of 2009 to better reflect today's new music and to stand up competing terrestrial radio stations in Japan. I hope you enjoy J1!
