Join us from 7-10 PM ET on Wednesday, January 9, as Bodega Pop Live on WFMU's Give the Drummer Radio celebrates our dear friend and neighbor Melissa's milestone birthday. Melissa has delighted us with so many insanely beautiful and delicious baked goods over the years, we figured the least we could do was to provide her with a mix to mix her dough & batter by. A long-time lover of reggae, we hope she finds this special birthday program focused on Jamaican sounds inspiring.
One of the most beloved Japanese musicians of all time, a man of many hats -- composer, folk musician, pop star, producer, rapper, rocker, songwriter -- Hauromi "Harry" Hosono's reputation and influence extends far beyond the archipelago. A member of Apryl Fool, Happy End, Yellow Magic Orchestra, and Tin Pan Alley, Hosono helped shape nearly every significant Japanese pop music trend of the last 50 years. We've put together a career-spanning tribute, from the early psychedelic rock and folk 70s, through the electronic and city pop eighties and collaborative nineties, to 21st century soundtracks and tributes.
