I play music that is old and that is new. Some of it is digital while some is analog. It is from many different countries; sometimes it is loud and at other times it is quiet.

Happy New Year Mayuko (a little early)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm listener james from westwood:

Good evening, Mayuko and all!
Avatar 5:03pm Mayuko:

Happy holidays and happy new year, Dave B! james! Thanks for tuning in!
  5:09pm Dave B:

This riff reminds me of Joe Jackson (Do The) Instant Mash
Avatar 5:15pm Mayuko:

I don't know that song, Dave B, but I wouldn't be surprised if that was exactly the original they "borrowed" idea from. That's how things were in 70's Japan, I think!
  5:25pm Dave B:

No it wasn't exact. Just the cadence and structure kind of reminded me of it.... Keep on doin' what you're doin'!!!
  5:28pm Listener142985:

Ready to get on a bus and head west.
Avatar 5:34pm Mayuko:

Welcome on board, Listener142985, glad to have you taking this ride with me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm Carmichael:

Is anyone else having problems with the playlist? I can't see what I'm typing ...
  5:44pm Dave B:

I'm on the mobile app, and it crashed hard after my first comment, but since then.... ROCK SOLID!! \m/ (>_<) \m/
Avatar 5:45pm Mayuko:

oh no, Carmichael! Do you mean there's nothing shown in this little box where you type?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm Carmichael:

That's right, Mayuko. And the playlist won't scroll or refresh. I'm using IE11. on my iPhone, it looks fine.
  5:52pm Dave B:

I.E. 11, try "compatibility mode"

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Playlist and comments look OK on my Android phone with the Chrome browser and also in the app.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm listener james from westwood:

That "S.Y.P.H." you mentioned might be pronounced "siff," rhyming with "GIF." They may have been going for the first four letters of "syphilis."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm listener james from westwood:

Cool that you got to enjoy the view your parents saw all that time ago! I wanted to go up in the Willis Tower when I visited Chicago for work, but I had all my luggage with me and there was nowhere to stash it.
  6:03pm Dave B:

Listener James.... I was trying to figure out if it was some sort of acronym, but there are no German words that begin with Y
  6:03pm Dave B:

Hope you had a fun time in Chicago Mayuko!
  6:06pm Listener142985:

Pleasure to be along with you, M. I am not about to give up my seat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm steve:

hello Mayuko and friends
  6:06pm Dave B:

Likewise... This show is one habit I'm not gonna kick in 2016
  6:07pm Polyus:

I go to Chicago for New Year's almost every year, and I have never been up in that tower. I should have a look sometime.
  6:08pm Polyus:

. . .and hello Mayuko.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The tower must have been brand new in 1974. I visited it in1991 or so. I stayed around home here for Christmas, but rode the train to NYC on Saturday and strolled through Central Park.
  6:12pm Dave B:

Completed in 73
Avatar 6:13pm Mayuko:

(Thanks Dave B for the IE assist!)
  6:13pm Dave B:

Did it work? I cannot shake my former IT support skin.....
Avatar 6:16pm Mayuko:

Thank you james, re pronunciation of S.Y.P.H.! Now I'm ahead of fellow Japanese people in this department, bwahaha.
  6:16pm Dave B:

And as soon as I find an alternate side parking spot, 大掃除 begins at home!

Oosouji is more than just cleaning and organizing in a physical sense. It carries with it a state of mind. Creating order out of chaos can be good for the soul, so can letting go of unwanted things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm paul b:

There was a point in um 1979 where I found myself, a 19 year old sailor, in the enlisted mans club on the joint Navy Base at Yokuska watching a band of local teengers nail a perfect rendition of Iron Butterfly's Inna-Gadda-da Vida.
I went to the Sears tower in 1998 when I went to visit my sister in Chicago after my nephew was born. The only two tall buildings I've ever been up were the Sears tower and the Tokyo tower
Avatar 6:22pm Mayuko:

And good evening, steve! Polyus, thank you for tuning in! I liked Chicago, although I don't think I got to see much since my stay was only weekend. Christmas decoration was pretty. What is it like there for New Year?
  6:22pm Dave B:

Those observation boxes have a big NOPE written all over them....

Avatar 6:23pm Mayuko:

james, I didn't get to see really the landscape because it was so foggy, haha.
Avatar 6:24pm Mayuko:

Ken, was there that glass box thing with see through floor in 1991? Even though I had almost no view that was still freaking scary.
  6:25pm Dave B:

Those boxes were a recent addition
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Mayuko. Those boxes were just added four or five years ago.
  6:28pm Dave B:

2009 or so...
Avatar 6:29pm Mayuko:

whoa, paul b! So you were actually there in that time and seen what it was like! I'm just assuming it all from my parent's stories and music from that time and stuff. And that's great that you've been to Tokyo Tower. I loved that tower.
  6:36pm Dave B:

Makes me long for the old WTC Observation deck.... Got stuck in a freight elevator there back around 87 or so.
Avatar 6:36pm Mayuko:

Dave B, I'm gonna do osouji although it was supposed to be done earlier I think. I also miss the 108 bell banging.
Avatar 6:37pm Mayuko:

... and what happened after that, Dave B!? How long did it take for you to get out of that elevator?!
  6:37pm Dave B:

ITS NEVER TOO LATE! And my neighbors will love the 108 bell loop I have ready.... My amp goes to 11
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Yes, 2009, I see now. I heard the CN tower in Toronto has a glass floor in part of its observation deck. Imagine the vertigo!
Avatar 6:39pm glenn:

yes, it does have a glass floor.
  6:39pm Dave B:

PRAY vertigo doesn't make me dizzy!
Avatar 6:40pm Mayuko:

OMG That is so cool, Dave B!!!!!
  6:41pm Dave B:

And Space Needle (I think) has that tethered walk around the perimeter...

No thanks

p.s. - this song is excellent!
Avatar 6:41pm Mayuko:

Ah, Ken, I should try that glass floor when I make it to Toronto! Toronto is long overdue place for me to visit! and hallo, glenn, welcome on board!
Avatar 6:47pm glenn:

it's maybe 1500 feet above the ground, so that might influence your decision.
  6:48pm Listener142985:

Oh yeah! Here come the '80s! Love this stuff.
  6:49pm Dave B:

It's a sample of a lotus bell. I'm not sure if the timing is accurate, but it sounds for the last minute or two of the old, the last timed to sound on the new...
Avatar 6:50pm Mayuko:

glenn, I guess I'll see. Willis tower was already bad enough for me! Listener142985, I love this song too!
  6:52pm Listener142985:

I had a blast in the 80s, don't care what people say about the music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm steve:

wow nice cover
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm listener james from westwood:

@Listener142985: Likewise re: the 80s.
Avatar 6:54pm Mayuko:

I strongly agree re: the 80's! steve, I love this cover!
Avatar 6:54pm Mayuko:

This is my last song for this show & 2015 - thank you all so much for listening, and I hope to have you all with me for my radio adventure in 2016!!
Avatar 6:55pm Mayuko:

& I wish all a happy new year!!
  6:56pm Listener142985:

our thanks to you, it's always fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm listener james from westwood:

Very glad to have made your musical acquaintance this year, Mayuko! Enjoy wherever your New Year's celebrations take you!
  6:56pm Dave B:

Ring out the old. Ring in the new. Thanks Mayuko for all that you do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I'm looking forward to 2016. See you in the new year!
  6:59pm Dave B:

Oh. We were stuck in that elevator for about 30-40 minutes. I forget how high up, but you could feel the building sway... ALOT!
  7:00pm Dave B:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20am tmoyo:

Listening to the archived show writing nengajo postcards in Yokohama. Great to hear Hosono Haruomi and Yamashita Tatsuro at the end of the year... Thanks Mayuko-san, it was a pleasure to discover your show this year. Enjoyed it immensely whenever I got to catch it. 良いお年をお迎えください!
Avatar 12:28pm Mayuko:

Whoa, tmoyo san, so happy to have your comment from Japan!! Thank you so much for finding me here & listening to my show, such a huge encouragement. よいお年を〜!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm fred:

Thanks and happy new year Mayuko! DJ ALF, an insanely talented DJ and regular contributor to Billy Jam's show, spent some time in Japan and really stepped up when the Fukushima disaster hit. Maybe you should talk with him
Avatar 1:05am Mayuko:

Happy new year to you too, fred! I'll look into Billy Jam's archives to find him, I wonder if he lives in NJ/NYC? By the way I got Blue Sabbath Black Fiji, & I LOVE it. Thanks for the recommendation!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm fred:

I think he lives in Baltimore, but he's a longtime friend of Billy. I thought about him because you talked about bases and he was stationed in Okinawa (I found that out because I thought a track of his had that unique rhythm so I asked him about it)
I'm really happy that you like Blue Sabbath Black Fiji, especially now as they had close ties to an artist space that just closed its doors. It lives on in a way
Avatar 9:04am Mayuko:

Oh I see. I'd be very curious to hear what it was like to be stationed in Okinawa!
