FM802 (エフエムはちまるに, Efu Emu Hachi Maru Ni) is a commercial radio station based at Daiwa Minami-morimachi Building in Tenjimbashi Nichome, Kita-ku, Osaka, Japan, broadcasting on 80.2 FM from Mount Iimori to Kansai region. As a late comer to the radio broadcasting market, it was a focal point for FM802 to differentiate from existing stations. Therefore, rather than featuring music promoted by the productions, they chose to air tunes of their choice in heavy rotation.[2] The station is considered the most popular among younger generation in Osaka.[3]
