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.

Whoa! Haven't heard this cut in a bloody age! Howdy, Mayuko and all!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm listener james from westwood:

Also caught the archive of last week's show over the weekend and it felt like a glorious 3-hour Sublime Frequencies tour!
Avatar 5:07pm Mayuko:

Good afternoon, james! Thanks for tuning in and glad you enjoyed the last week's JP-heavy/WW2-heavy show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm listener james from westwood:

It was like I had some manner of time-radio that got broadcasts through an ether portal. Where else but hear am I gonna hear that?
Avatar 5:21pm Mayuko:

ah, that's really great compliment! thank you james. I'm amazed how diverse music had been before the war broke. Somehow it moves me just to know there were people who were interested in many different kinds of music from all the different places, even during wartime and despite of the propaganda telling many of those music came from "enemies".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm redkayak:

Howdy all :)
Avatar 5:23pm Mayuko:

Hello redkayak! thanks for tuning in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm listener james from westwood:

You mentioned censorship and other pressure during your breaks in that show. That reminded me of what I read along those lines in a college textbook on modern Japanese history I proofread a few years back. It even included a full-page photo from the late 1930s of a Japanese officer talking to two women in Western dress, and according to the caption he was lecturing them over their nonconforming hairstyles. Always men gotta be putting their opinion in!
Avatar 5:27pm Dave B:

Hi hi hi!
Avatar 5:34pm Mayuko:

@james that's interesting. and yah, I red that that's exactly why Noriko Awaya (the singer I played last week) often got into trouble too... she had her hair curled and dressed in western dresses... glad I'm not living in the time in which being normal is already some kind of statement. Although it seems old men still "gotta be putting their opinion in" for women nowadays in Japan still, haha!
Avatar 5:34pm Mayuko:

Hallo Dave B!!! How are you?
Avatar 5:35pm Dave B:

I am doing well Mayuko! I hope you are too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm Stanley:

Hi Mayuko. Listening happily and reading my Tokyo guidebook. Less than two months to go but man, where do I start?
Avatar 5:38pm Dave B:

and it's not just Japan. IT STILL HAPPENS

This was just last week:
Avatar 5:46pm Mayuko:

Hello Stanley! If you wanna check out obscure underground music in Japan, I'd recommend Enban (円盤)in Kouenji 高円寺! It's a very unique place... www.timeout.com...

Are you planning to stop by Asakusa by any chance? that's my former neighborhood, and I LOVED it.
Avatar 5:47pm Mayuko:

oh it's very true, Dave B, certainly still happens, it makes me really sick when I see news of lynching and stuff like that. I really don't understand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm redkayak:

Mayuko, I'm happy to say your fine music selections are helping me finish an article today!
Avatar 5:55pm Dave B:

not quite the dead of summer Stanley, but still... no trip would be complete without Unagi.

Unagi Kabuto in Ikebukuro...

Their "demographic"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, drummers. I've been lurking, but now going to see "Most Likely To Succeed." www.mltsfilm.org Have a nice week!
Avatar 6:06pm Dave B:

switching over to mobile! I'll be listening on the way home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm Stanley:

Thanks Mayuko. I just looked it up. Asakusa is famous for temples, street food and sumo wrestling. I am so excited to be going to Japan. I'm going to a wedding in Osaka and, will also be visiting Kyoto. I have five days planned in Tokyo, which sounds like nowhere on earth like it. Will let you know where I decide to base myself.
Avatar 6:10pm Mayuko:

thank you for your kind words, redkayak!!!!
and welcome on board, Stepchild!!
Avatar 6:10pm Mayuko:

Hi Ken, have a nice week to you too!
Avatar 6:11pm Mayuko:

demographic!!!! that was the word I was looking for!!! man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm Stanley:

@Dave B - checked out unagi too. I would love to eat some eel. Have you been there?
  6:19pm Dave B.:

Yep. Make reservations. They sell out quick!
Avatar 6:22pm Mayuko:

Stanley, if you ever go to Asakusa... and if you're a coffee drinker,,, there's a coffee place that's the best. I used to go there literally every week. www.tripadvisor.com... one of few things I missed about Japan.

Now I got this craving for unagi!!!
  6:24pm Dave B.:

  6:27pm robert:

I was in the middle of taking 6 mos off of coffee while I was in japan, now that I've started again, I realize what a fool I was to not just start again then. :(

hi people!

Avatar 6:32pm Mayuko:

Hi robert, thank you for tuning in! You lived there in Japan, or for a trip? I can't imagine myself succeeing in quitting coffee.
Hi melinda! welcome on board!
Avatar 6:32pm Joe McG:

Mayuko, I hope you will do an unagi show.
Avatar 6:35pm Mayuko:

Hello Joe!!! That would be a very vague and slippery selection of music, which might have always been the case with my show anyway, haha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm melinda:

I had to quit coffee & it sucked. I might have a cup if I was abroad at a special place though.
  6:36pm Dave B.:

Or a Yaki-Imo show!

Avatar 6:36pm Joe McG:

@Mayuko: Slippery but tasty!
  6:37pm robert:

Mayuko: I've been tuning in for a while now, quickly becoming my fav FMU/GTDR show :)

I was there for 3 weeks late last year (Tokyo, Sapporo, Toyama, and Kyoto). Quitting coffee is a fool's errand, don't recommend doing so unless you have to ;p

Hoping to visit Japan again in September, will have to make up for it next time around :)
Avatar 6:37pm Mayuko:

Cafe de Naniwaya in Asakusa, Tokyo that I was recommending is def worth taking back your coffee habit! (and I think he had other drinks on menu anyway.)
  6:41pm robert:

Nice! I will try to check it out. My partner and I had amazing tempura in asakusa. From http://www.tempura.co.jp/english/

Didn't realize it's apparently a rather famous (and somewhat pricey) place, we just saw people queued up in an alley and lined up behind them. :)
Avatar 6:41pm Mayuko:

@robert September is not bad though it's still a bit humid/hot, I hope you'll have a great time if you make it there!

always a huge delight to have a new listener! hope I haven't confused people though by playing buncha ww2 Japanese propaganda songs one week and noise/techno other week......
Avatar 6:42pm Mayuko:

Yakiimo can totally generate a radio show, Dave B, just the season is wrong now.
Avatar 6:45pm northguineahills:

Ok, gotta leave. Mayuko, when I was in an US Armed Forces Public school on base in Japan, probably 60% of the kids were Asian, (or half Asian), mostly Filipino and Japanese. It wasn't until Junior High that social hierarchies developed, and even so, there were no racial boundaries there in the so-called "cliques". Once I got back to the States, puberty finally happened (I was a late bloomer), and I went to a high school w/ no social hierarchy, mainly b/c it was so large.
  6:45pm robert:

@mayuko: I think we're here because we appreciate the variety. There's cohesion in there somehow!

And yes, last year I was also there august/september. Rather humid in the south (sapporo was lovely though). But the undesirable weather means that flights are cheaper :D
  6:46pm Dave B.:

I just like the yakiimo song.

(And Yakiimo
Avatar 6:47pm Mayuko:

Yakiimo song is the soul music of Japan, Dave B.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Stanley:

Mayuko and helpful listeners, thanks for the tips. I will check out all your suggestions. Forgive me but time for bed, so Oyasuminasai (its 11.45pm here)
  6:48pm robert:

eee. Much <3 for Crash Course in Science. Glad Dark Entries reissues have gotten them a wider audience.
  6:53pm Dave B.:

So is yakiimo the soul food?
Avatar 6:54pm Mayuko:

@robert the first music show I saw in NYC after I moved here 5 yrs ago was Crash Course in Science at Issue Project Room... I was so happily surprsied that they were still active!
Avatar 6:56pm Mayuko:

good night, Stanley, and thanks for sharing your story ngh! I'll have to read it carefully after my show, it's interesting.
Avatar 6:57pm Mayuko:

these music is going out of my control, definitely not the way I planned, haha! but this is the last track for my show today. Thanks all for listening!
  6:58pm robert:

@mayuko: ooo. That's a pretty great first show and venue! Jealous.

Thanks for the great set! This is a fun note to go out on :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm listener james from westwood:

Always a pleasure, Mayuko; thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm Rich in Washington:

Thanks, Mayuko!!
Avatar 7:02pm Mayuko:

oh! Rich in Washington, thank you for listening! and thanks all, see you next week.
Avatar 2:42pm fred:

Thanks again Mayuko, that was a really fun show. I'm not sure the track from Madagascar used it, but there's a common instrument there that's a bamboo tube with strings running lengthwise around it. The first interesting thing to me about it is there are very close instruments in Indonesia and Timor. Another is that many use bike brake cables for strings, and I heard a funny discussion between players on whether front or back wheel cables were better. I think it was a joke, but you never know with musicians or more generally artists
Avatar 12:53am Mayuko:

Ah! Feels like I might have heard that bike thing in the lecture by Fumio Koizumi the ethnomusicologist! I will def look into that, very fascinating!
