This show was recorded on the 8th April 2018 with my good friend Tomo in Gifu, Japan. Hot on the heals of Tomo's fantastic YMO article in 'The Wire' magazine entitled 'A User's Guide to Yellow Magic Orchestra' https://www.thewire.co.uk/issues/404, this radio show expands the YMO family to look at the work of Gen Hoshino.
Hoshino san is a true polymath, who is often seen as continuing Hosono's legacy.
Check out this recent book (in Japanese) written about both of them by Hoshino here: http://tinyurl.com/y73ms92s

The show is divided into three sections:
• SAKEROCK, A 2000's EXOTICA BAND
• HOSONO AND HIS FOLKY FOLLOWERS
• HOSHINO AND HOSONO
