It's like J-Caroling, but in Greece (re: wasseling)

When LoKi's away...Erin gets a smart-mouth! Jaylee and Erin take the reigns this week as GK reviews JPop legend, Masaharu Fukuyama and cute hybrid, MiChi. Besides my audio quibbles with Erin, the gang does a solid job. Some (Jaylee) might even say this last month and change has been Gaijin Kanpai's "Golden Era". You be the judge...but be nice...I have a fragile ego...

 

So we've got MiChi, some old guy, a new round of AA picks and of course Charts & News. Rumor has it that one of the PUFFY girls got herself knocked up. I have a n alibi, unfortunately. Could you imagine getting of piece of that "Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi Show" residual cash-money? I could go to a strip club for at least an hour!

 

uStream Live will return next week. Check out JpopJrock.com/Live Wednesdays at 7:30pm PST. It's a hoot!

 

Notes? Sure. Why not...
