Fukuyama Masaharu to host 24-hour radio special for charity

Fukuyama Masaharu (42) will be hosting a special 24-hour live radio program on April 9th-10th for the areas affected by the Tohoku earthquake. He personally announced the project during his radio show on Saturday night.

The “Radio Charity Musicthon SP: I’m with U: Kimi to, 24 Jikan Radio” will start at 1:00pm on April 9th and continue for a full 24 hours. Fukuyama will be singing and delivering live messages, while encouraging donations for the relief efforts. There will also be special celebrity guests participating in the program. However, there will not be any extravagant performances, in consideration of the current energy conservation measures in Japan.

Nippon Broadcasting System has held a 24-hour musicthon around Christmas every year since 1975. This will be its first time doing a special one outside the Christmas season.

Last year, Fukuyama starred in the NHK taiga drama “Ryomaden.” Some filming was done on location in the city of Ofunato, Iwate, which was one of the areas heavily affected by the earthquake and tsunami. Fukuyama also happened to be in Kobe ** during the time of the Great Hanshin earthquake back in 1995.

Fukuyama was originally scheduled to perform at the Sekisui Heim Super Arena in Miyagi prefecture on April 9th and 10th, but those concerts were canceled due to the tsunami. He will resume his national tour from April 16th in Mie prefecture.

It was also revealed today that Fukuyama participated in the charity song “I love you & I need you Fukushima” by the band Inawashirokozu, consisting of Matsuda Shinji (THE BACK HORN), Yamaguchi Takashi (Sambomaster), Watanabe Toshimi (TOKYO No.1 SOUL SET), and Yanai Michihiko. He played the electric guitar and harmonica for a special version of the song, while Inoue Akira played the piano. That version is available on the Tokyo FM mobile website.
