Asia Pop 40 airs on Phuket’s Live 89.5 FM every Friday from 9pm till midnight and on Sat from 1-4pm.
This year marks the fourth annual countdown of the top 140 songs on the Asia Pop 40 chart, based purely on their ranking in the chart and the number of weeks they appeared.
Creator and Executive Producer of Asia Pop 40, Rob Graham, said, “We have always been committed to creating a year-end highlight package of the show and in previous years our listeners have reacted very positively to the round-up. What better way to showcase 52 episodes, or 156 hours, of programming? We believe our annual countdown is another first for Asian radio and we’re very proud of that.”
Graham added, “As per previous years, we will be honouring the Asia Pop 40 No. 1 Song Of 2017, the Asia Pop 40 Artist Of 2017 and the Asia Pop 40 Group/Duo Of 2017.”
