70s, 80s & 90s 年代 日本の音楽 Japanese Pop from the 70s, 80s & 90s (and some current hits too)
JTM is from the San Francisco Bay Area and lived for a while in Tokyo, Japan before settling in Honolulu, HI. While JTM will eventually love to return to the mainland, Hawaii is not a bad place to live for now. It was while in Japan that JTM developed his live for Japanese J-Pop, J-Dorama and J-Movies. While both parents are Japanese, JTM didn't really have any interest in Japanese Culture before living in Tokyo. JTM loves all J-Pop but particularly favors the music from the 70s and 80s. While the idols of the time weren't as vocally proficient as some of the current idols like BoA, Utada Hikaru and Ito Yuna, their songs were definitely more memorable and diverse. Songs from Nakamori Akina, Yamaguchi Momoe, Nakayama Miho, Wink, Kikuchi Momoko etc. are still sung at Karaoke Bars and covered by current artists. In his spare time JTM loves the outdoors, jogging, exercising and travel. He loves J-Doramas from the 80s especially the "Daiei" TV dramas and 70s Cop Shows like "Seibu Keisatsu", "Taiyo Ni Hoero", "Playgirl", "Tokusousaizensen" and "G-Men '75".
