Nihongaku Radio Episode 50: Back On My Feet

Fifty episodes? It hardly seems possible and yet, here it is.

To mark the occasion, I’ve asked some friend of the show to pick a song of Japanese origin that everyone should hear. Oh man! Did they ever deliver. Hear songs picked by LB Bryan of Ani.me, Akai Sky, Tyler Abstract of the Abstract Japan podcast, Duvan Prada of Colectivo Bunka, Daniel Robson and Asuka Eki of It Came From Japan, Roberto Villegas of cosmicradio.tv, and Zac Bentz.

To the listeners of Nihongaku Radio, be they casually interested or absolute devotees: This one is for you…just like all the others.
