WRFU is an Urbana-Campaign Independent Media Center (UC-IMC) project, that operates a low-power FM (104.5) community radio station.

Harukana Show comes to you every Friday from 6 pm to 7 pm CST. The host of the show is Mugiko and the co-hosts live in US and in Japan. We will speak in Japanese as we connect the US and Japan through radio. You can come to the studio and speak through radio in Japanese or English, or in any other language, or join us by Skype or Google Chat from anywhere in the world.

We also stream live over the internet at wrfu.net. You can listen to live shows or hear previously archived shows as well.
