Playing the best of Japanese Indies and underground (and other stuff). Music you will hear nowhere else! Mike has been fired from every Tokyo FM station at least once and some of them 4 times! I wear it as a stinky badge of honor because FM in Japan sucks so much. Tune in! Be there!

Yeah, Mike. The whole thing is built on a 'pay (X) or more' model. Some artists even have no price and say 'pay what you like' etc.

I assume when i pay more on bandcamp, the band gets a better return

Mike Rogers:

That is really cool of you, Michael 98145... Because, in Japan's case, bands never get any airplay on Japanese FM radio, and it is incredibly rare for a bnad to break big. I think the last band to break from a club band to a big record label was "Boowy"

Sometimes I think that Japanese radio fans are not music fans.
They seem to enjoy only what they talk.
Even some fans on your shows don't reply to the music but talking.

This show is always a treat! I really dig all the stuff you fill this show with and your 'Mike' breaks are always entertaining and informative.

Thanks Rich... By the way, got a light?

Yeah. Guys, radio in this country is built upon a foundation of AM talk radio. So even a so-called music show will only play like 6 songs in one hour. They spend the rest of the time blabbing about stupid shit.

I quit smoking almost ten years ago but can't quite make myself get rid of my zippos, including the all brass one I bought almost 40 years ago.

I didn't start smoking until I was 40 years old. No kidding. I broke my leg and was trapped in a hospital for 3 weeks. There was nothing else to do. Another patient handed me a cigarette and thnow you know the rest of the story!

I've never owned a zippo. Every cigarette I light, I think, "This is my last one for sure. No kidding now. Final Cigarette. Never again. Goodbye cigs!"

I used to smoke everytime I drank booze.Now, I stopped drinking and still smoke cause there is nothing else to do!

I sort of miss social smoking with drinking but in my state and neighboring Oregon there aren't many places you're allowed to smoke anymore, so that makes it easier.

Oh god, Camel cash! In the 80s I was saving Marlboro bucks or whatever they were called. At the time I thought - why not get some of my money back, as I was smoking a pack a day then.
