Continent wide FM radio signal? I live in Asia yet my country doesn't play Japanese, Chinese, Taiwanese or any other Asian music. Only my country's and Western music. And I have no idea on the current mainstream music.

"Top 40s" was a solution to a Payola radio scandal in United States; I can't verify for sure whether other countries follow the same system in broadcasting, but most countries generally do have some form of "list" that they follow since it's effective. Most of these lists are created through popularity of requests and statistics in "which albums" do best. The opposite form is having DJs picking out the music where History proves is prone to corruption.

Now that you understand the reasoning behind these top 40s list, don't blame the radio companies. Blame the god damn majority.

Just don't listen to the radio, there's plenty of places to buy and/or steal music on the internet.

my country has different language of fm radio, we got chinese ( mixed with korean & japanese songs ), malay, tamil and english radio. So, we can tune in whatever we want.

Ps : I still prefer the english songs over chinese songs.
