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.

The image on the playlist today:

“Norakuro” was a Japanese manga(comic book) series created by Suihō Tagawa and very popular among kids. Started in 1931, had run through 1941 until it got banned. The main character Norakuro was a soldier serving in an army of dogs called the "fierce dogs brigade" modeled after Japanese army. But I’ve read that it seemed the real military people of the JP empire didn’t like Norakuro - they thought it was insulting to them that Norakuro the soldier always do funny silly things and make mistakes all the time. So it was written in the way to excite kids for the war but ended up being banned by the military (there are some other theories to explain why it was banned, this is one of them.) Norakuro is an orphan so he doesn’t have a family who would miss him if he dies in a battle, nor would be happy to hear he gets promoted...

Hi, Mayuko and pals. My daughter got some cherry blossom shoes for a present. store.nike.com... I told her to stay out the snow with them!

That Tadanori Yokoo homage (I'm guessing it was a kind of homage?) was incredible
Avatar 5:27pm Polyus:

Greetings Mayuko and Vertigoats.
Avatar 5:34pm Mayuko:

Hello Ken, Polyus, thank you for tuning in!! Gary, I think Tadanori Yokoo participated this album making music with Toshi (although not sure how large his contribution was...) He is indeed known much more for his art, but he worked with Haruomi Hosono on Cochin Moon too so he's got some music stuff in his career... sort of.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm Gary:

Oh, cool -- I didn't know that
  5:36pm david:

Woohoo! Made it home in time to tune in!
Avatar 5:40pm Mayuko:

... except Tadanori Yokoo didn't stay until the finish of Cochin Moon and Hosono had to finish it by himself... so it's credited as his solo album... I red it recently in Hosono san's interview and it was very funny.

They're just as wacky in English,maybe even more so!
Avatar 6:07pm Mayuko:

And yes, it's especially funny since Popeye beaten up all the "Japs" while WW2, I watched that too. Hello Uncle Michael, geezerette! Glad you made it live for that Akireta Boys, northguineahills, I love love that one.
Avatar 6:09pm geezerette:

What a voice!
Avatar 6:12pm northguineahills:

When I lived in Japan, my brothers' babysitter had a whole collection of 30s-40s Popeye cartoons. So, hard to find today.
  6:15pm Dave B.:

North Guinnea Hills - I have an official DVD collection of all the original Popeye 33-38. You can find it on Amazon.

My recollection is that the conductor/automated voice announcing stations in Japan always sounded like Popeye. just say Shinjuku in Popeye's voice and you'll understand
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm redkayak:

Good evening all :)
Avatar 6:19pm Mayuko:

Haha! they do have super particular voice to do those train announcement, Dave B, I would often wondered why. Good evening, redkayak, thank you for tuning in!
Avatar 6:19pm northguineahills:

thanks Dave!
Avatar 6:19pm geezerette:

The very best Popeyes are the ones from the early 30's,pre war.
Those are surreal and funny. The gags are visual, not military.
Those are b&w and the drawing is simultaneously beautiful and funny.

Whoa I got to have 藤圭子 & 淡谷のり子. btw just got 青年時代の登川誠仁 CD, enjoying it every track. WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
Avatar 12:36pm fred:

I saved this show to listen to on my birthday, but I didn't get beyond the first set. That still was a great gift: that Toshi Ichiyanagi track was amazing. I'll catch the rest tomorrow, between Sonic Protest shows
Avatar 7:21am fred:

That Wada track was great, thanks for playing the whole of it. And that Kame Itokazu song... so beautiful. We talked about Beauty last week, this song reminded me of "a pile of time", there was a very similar vocal part in that song.
Avatar 10:39pm Mayuko:

Thank you for listening, zmz! so happy that 青年時代の登川誠仁 arrived and you like it!!
Avatar 10:48pm Mayuko:

@fred ohh, Denseland is playing at Sonic Protest, wish I could go see too. Kame Itokazu is great, she was born in 1915 and passed away in 1991... I don't understand why it seems like there is no solo album of her. I've heard her only in compilations. anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope you had a beautiful day. You were born on April 8th? That's also Buddha's birthday!
Avatar 3:12pm fred:

Caryn told me about that (Buddha's birthday in Japan), which is somehow fitting because I saw Circle yesterday and they were totally awesome. Finnish greatness as a bridge between Japan and France, with the US thrown in and other countries welcome. That's how it should be
