According to wiki, Soul Flower Union also known as SFU, is a Japanese musical group formed in 1990, "that incorporates Japanese folk/old style music (Okinawan, chindon) and world music (Celtic, Chinese, Korean folk music) styles into a rock and roll band."
The song "Mangetsu no Yuube" (Full Moon Evening) was a song dedicated to survivors of the Kobe Earthquake on 1995. Two versions exist, created by people from two different music groups, Nakagawa Takashi from Soul Flower Union and Yamaguchi Hiroshi from Heatwave. Soul Flower Union's version's lyrics were made by Nakagawa who is from Kansai where the disaster happened. The Heatwave version was by Yamaguchi who is from Tokyo (watch it HERE). Japanese wiki says, "the difference between the two songs is their feeling towards the disaster. Soul Flower Union is singing about the hope for the future and Heatwave is singing sympathy towards victims". It was also featured in the drama special "Radio".

Radio (NHK Drama Special, Winter 2013) takes place in Onagawa, Miyagi Prefecture, one of the many coastal towns that were devastated during the 2011 Great Tohoku Disaster. "Onagawa Saigai (Disaster) FM", a provisional radio station, was set up to give valuable information and cheer to members of its community. Thousands of residents who had left town also listen to it through webcast.
Based on a real-life story, the drama features the events ten months after the tsunami. A local high school girl nicknamed "Boh," (Kariya Yuiko) which means "anonymous", shuts herself up all day inside her family's temporary resettlement unit home, playing rock music with her electric guitar. Her mom (Nashima Naomi) is worried about her, and enlists the help of a childhood friend, Kunieda (Yoshida Eisaku), an owner of kamaboko shop. Kunieda is able to make Boh do volunteer work for Saigai FM. Clumsy and shy, Boh has an awkward start as an announcer, and thinks of quitting. However, she receives messages of support from a listener in Tokyo, Tobimatsu (Lily Franky), who is thankful for the rock music she plays, encouraging Boh to continue. She also soon opens up to her co-staff members (Ando Sakura, Arai Hirofumi, Natsui 
Runa, Fujiwara Kaoru) at the radio station. Boh has also started a blog, as suggested by her father (Toyohara Kosuke), who knows that Boh expresses herself better through writing than speaking.
One day, Boh learns about the debris problem in Tohoku. Many local governments outside the disaster area are against accepting the debris, because of possible radioactivity. She expresses her sincere opinions about the issue in her blog. Soon after that, someone posted her blog entry in internet forums, and it spread quickly. From the usual 10 readers, suddenly, her blog has been read a million times over...

Original story from "Boh-chan." Radio is one of the recipients of the "Best Single Drama" from "Tokyo Drama Awards 2013" and "50th Galaxy Excellence Awards." This SP also features songs "Oen Ka" by Inazuma Sentai, "Makeinu" by The Stalin and "Mangetsu no Yuube" by Soul Flower Union.
