Yup, that was your suggestion too, would have passed me by otherwise. It only makes sense to throw in that UK link.

My idea, woo. I was hoping people would recognise it and go "hey they play Shiina Ringo on this show, maybe this station has more than just animu junk". Who knows if it's worked.

:-p
why would I play her best song when I can play two tracks from SUNNY?

I thought about going with Gamble but I didn't want three songs from the Sakuran soundtrack. And I really really like the HF version of Poltergeist.

Honestly, I can't deal with Ringo's French. Maybe it's because of Papaya Mango. Thank you, glad you enjoyed it!

There's a lot of stuff I wanted to include and I've played other Ringo/Jihen (ZCS Yattsuke Shigoto and Kenka Joutou off the top of my head) on the show, and I'll be playing more of her in future, but I wanted to try and strike a balance on Ringo's different styles (which is why I picked an electronic track off Sanmon, cause I already had some jazzy Ringo on the cards). As you can see I ended up basically dedicating the whole hour and a half to her, with the only mostly-unrelated track being the Zazen Boys joint she sings backing vocals on. Pretty pleased with the end result though, it's a pretty good episode of a show I'm very proud of.

Next episode airs on New Years Day if you find yourself without anything else to do at whatever ungodly hour it is in your respective timezones. Also if any of you've got any requests or recommendations then feel free to let me know, I'm already starting to buckle under the amount of research I'm doing.

It definitely adds a certain amount of class. But more than that, somehow that particular bit from Honnou just really worked there.

Yeah, even I can hear that her French sucks ("soleiL"), and I don't actually know any French. But still, that deep, rich voice just gives me a chill every time.

Thank you for giving her the whole 90 minutes; she truly deserves it. The thing about Ringo is that you just can't reduce the entirety of her to a handful of songs. You're always going to be leaving something out. There's really no "right" answer as to what songs you should play in that kind of format.

ETA I'll follow the twitter and sign up for updates, because time zone differences are hard.

Sorry for bumping this redundant-ass thread but it turns out we already played stuff by Super Butter Dog, of which Rekishi is a member. I didn't know he was in the group at the time so I guess he belongs on the show after all. :D

Just that episode, too. Wish I still had a VPN.

Bit late to the party, but I've just listened to the whole radio show and I enjoyed it - thanks! I learnt quite a few facts about these songs that I didn't previously know.

Curiously none of the songs you played would make my top 10 or maybe even 20, but that's not to say they weren't a good collection - they're all quality songs - it's more of a testament to the breadth of her style and discography. Whittling down a 15 year [so far] career of such a diverse artist to 20 songs, an unenviable task. I just don't think I could do it, I'd get stuck in an infinite loop of "oh and what about..." and "but what about the live version of..?"

I agreed with the points you made about Honnou being a quintisential Ringo song. When I tell Japanese people I am a Ringo fan many say "Honnou!", even some who would have been ~10 years old when that song came out.
