Announcement: J-Canuck on "Tokyo House Party"


Media appearances regarding "Kayo Kyoku Plus" aren't very common but there was the interview that I had with Rocket Brown on his fine "Come Along Radio" podcast last year. Kinda stumbled along but I was able to get through it thanks to my friend and smooth congenial host.

Well, on Saturday February 27th at around 8:30 pm Eastern Standard Time (7:30 pm Chicago time), I will be showing up on the monthly livestream show "Tokyo House Party" hosted by Saira Chambers of the Japanese Culture Center and Arts Foundation in Chicago, IL and game designer Derrick Fields. On the show that will be up on Twitch, Saira and Derrick will be picking my brains (will probably only need tweezers) on the music of the Bubble Era in 1980s Japan. So, if you have some time wherever you are, come on in and join us not just for me but also for the rest of the show beginning from 7 pm EST (6 pm CST) when they tackle the theme of "BUBBLES, BIJUTSU, AND BEATS: THE MUSIC, FASHION, AND ART OF JAPAN'S "BUBBLE" ERA".

Personally, I'll be looking forward to having that opportunity to meet the guru of City Pop, Van Paugam, near the end of the session.
