I listened to this, it was wonderful - as are the books by Murakami. Thank you for doing this!

Good for him. Murakami sure is a great writer. Ive read most of his books - Norwegian Wood is the best.

What a brilliant man. Him and Hayao M are both national treasures and certainly two of the biggest reasons I initially first came to Japan back in my youth.

If you're going to write about a radio show, how about explaining it BEFORE it airs so we can hear it, rather than after it's over. Kinda' frustrating reading about something we missed.

Moderator: We did, on May 12.

It's cool but I'm disappointed not one Japanese artist or song?

The message is 'stay home, don't work, don't make money and don't feed your family or pay rent'. Easy for him to say, wealthy author of several best selling books.

The message is 'stay home, don't work, don't make money and don't feed your family or pay rent'.

The thing about this disaster is that a huge amount of people have realized they dont physically need to be at the workplace. Which is a great thing. Unless you work in a factory, for example, you should be able to make arrangements to work at least 3 days at home.

A lot of the folks banging on about "open up now!" for months, likely have not had this discussion with their boss. They should. Staying home has saved countless lives.

A kind gesture from this celebrity.
