Thank You for Listening to Radio Talk Show "Sukidatsucha ❤ Ishonomaki"! Thus Far; Now Past 17 Aired Episodes Available Online

A radio talk show "Sukidatsucha ❤ Ishonomaki" has been introduced for broadcasting as an assistance for reconstruction since July 5, but it has been decided to put an end to it as of October 25.
Only four-month-long project though it was, all went well to end what had been a very enjoyable show for many listeners. Thank you for listening!

【A shot with people at Radio Ishinomaki who have supported JEN in offering JEN's radio talk show.】

A total of twenty-one people made a guest appearance onto "Reconstruction News" corner in the last seventeen shows.

JEN invited those guests living in Ishinomaki because JEN, while working on projects in Ishinomaki, felt pretty much like asking them to "encourage much more listeners to make positive progress by talking their stories about reconstruction".

In the final episode, Mr. Hiroyuki Kogure and Hiroteru Yamanaka who have continued with their efforts as JEN staff members since April 2011, soon after the disaster, appeared on the show and spoke on their own thoughts on the reconstruction of their hometown with reflections on their experiences and what has been aired.

Listeners sent their messages to the show---quote---"'Even living in the same city Ishinomaki, I don't know much about districts elsewhere in the city, so it's very helpful, I'm looking forward to it every week.', 'While living outside the disaster areas, I was able to listen to what Ishinomaki's people think and, if only a little, find out how things really are in Tohoku.'" Therefore JEN made the recordings of "Reconstruction News", talks with guests, available on Youtube. You really must listen. Click on links below.
