In this episode we’re joined by legendary singer Dionne Warwick to talk about her upcoming visit to the Blue Note, her love of Japan, and her granddaughter, up-and-coming vocalist Cheyenne Elliott.

We also sit down with Kevin Jackson, the former University of Hawaii football star who now plays for the Obic Seagulls in Japan’s X League, to discuss how American football in played in Japan, outreach into schools, and much more.

In addition to our two featured interviews, we say farewell to Obon with a look at some of Japan’s most famous ghost stories. Plus, we once again make a few trips to Classifieds Corner.

This week’s segments were recorded in studio and at various locations around Roppongi Hills.
