Nikenme Radio (2軒目から始まるラジオ Nikenme kara Hajimaru Rajio, lit. "The radio that starts from the second bar") is a monthly interview with ZUN streamed on UStream TV. Each radio program consists of Okonogi, a writer for Chara☆Mel Febri, interviewing ZUN for about two hours at a restaurant of their choosing. As it says on the program's explanatory note, it's not particularly related to Touhou: They have a chat about everyday things like drinks, foods, TV programs, games and so on -- however despite its description, the topic usually turns to Touhou at one point or another during the interviews anyway. It has been running for seventeen months.

Each episode used to be saved on the radio's UStream channel, but as of December 2011, all of the videos had been deleted.


On August 6, 2010, the magazine Chara☆Mel Febri, which had just begun its serialization of Wild and Horned Hermit on July 24, hosted an interview with ZUN as a sort of "test run". They discussed the medium of games and manga in general, and also talked a little about Fairy Wars, which was to be released a little over a week later. [1]

After this radio show, dubbed as "episode 0", Chara☆Mel Febri continued to do an interview every month(whereas the actual magazine is published on a bi-monthly basis). The latest program was episode 17, on December 28, 2011.
