1. De Culture-Illness Theatre
Basara sings “Remember 16.” Ranka applauds and calls him “Ojisan .” Basara laughs and asks how old she is (16), and says that’s about how old he was when he met Ray. Ranka says that she would like to sing as well as him one day, although she thinks it’s impossible. Basara tells her it’s not if she sings from the heart wherever she is. Bobby calls for Ranka and Basara bids her farewell. Bobby asks if she knows the man, and Ranka says she just met him. Bobby says he’s seen that hairstyle somewhere and wonders who the man is. Kenta and Megu introduce themselves and comment on how hot it is. They mention that there is a special guest today.
2. Ordinary Letters
“Seventh Moon,” the theme song to Macross 7 plays and has been requested by many listeners. They decide to introduce the guest, and Canna Nobutoshi introduces himself first jokingly under another name before his real name. Canna comments that Kenta is sweating, and both DJs are excited he’s in the studio. There’s a lot of mail for Canna and he says he’s happy. Fan “Merry-go-round Pais (sp)” says that the line “Listen to my song!” is the greatest line from all Macross series. They ask Canna to say his line, which he does: “War is stupid! Listen to my song!” and both are thoroughly impressed. Kenta mentions that Canna and Megu have met before, briefly passing each other at the 25th Live Concert. They talk about Megu’s age (18) and Canna says he’s 40 (Megu says he doesn’t look it), which prompts talk that Megu could be Canna’s daughter. Megu says that she would be happy if Basara was her father, and Canna does Basara’s lines as if he’s talking to a baby. They move on to another letter, from Botsan, who says he just discovered Macross, and likes to sing along with Basara when he watched Macross 7. When Basara speaks, he was so moved and couldn’t sing anymore. “Fire Bomber is the best!” Kenta mentions that Megu is so moved, her hands are shaking, but she’s really nervous.
3. Oh, De Culture!
Kenta mentions that during the prep they discussed Canna’s “De Culture” moment. Canna says Kenta’s gotten a lot bigger since he last saw him, like a Zentraedy. Kenta says he’s always been big. They move on to the real De Culture moment, where Canna was entering a restaurant for lunch and the lights went out when he entered. “What, are they closed?!” he thought, and says that’s the first time that’s happened to him. Megu asks if they were really closed and Kenta tells Megu to choose her words carefully.
Next is a De Culture greater than Canna’s from “Run-run-kozou-san.” On a train he stared at a girl playing the DS, wondering what game it was. The girl looked up at him angrily and fixed her skirt. For a moment he didn’t realize why the girl was angry and then he did and got off at the next stop. “I wasn’t looking at you!” Canna says that misconceptions like that happen, like when he’s reading the hanging signs on a train and there’s a girl in a mini skirt sitting across from him. They comment that being perverted isn’t good and have a good laugh. The reader’s comment gets a “Kyun Kyun.”
4. Megumi - Oboetekudasai (Please Remember)
Continuing from last week’s theme, Yagyu-nijubei-san asks her for an impersonation. She impersonates an employee at a restaurant. She says that she’s done and can go home. Canna mentions a brand name store that welcomes its patrons with “shosui.” Kenta asks Canna for an impersonation, which is a helicopter.
Next is Sanma no hone-san’s request, asking what kind of clothes she likes right now (best three) and if she likes jeans, since she’s always in a skirt. Canna says she’s dressed cutely, and that she’s in a one-piece today. She wants easy requests like this and asks for lots of mail.
5. Macross Radio Daigaku (Academy) and Song Request
Today’s theme is Macross 7. Sekki comes in, but Kenta says that his knowledge isn’t necessary today because of the “Guest Professor.” Macross 7 broadcast from October 1994 through September 1995. Fan Ryuta-san asks if there was any pressure playing the lead in a Macross sequel. Canna says that when he auditioned, he already thought he was right for the part. He asks Kenta if he ever feels that way about a character, and Megu says that’s cool. He didn’t have time to feel pressured. Fan Isso-san asks about the Fukuyama (singer) and Canna connection for Basara. Everyone thought that Canna sang the songs, and he really isn’t sure how they decided on Fukuyama for the singing Basara (all decided by the staff). They’re working together under a band name “Fukujin,” and when he raises his voice a little, he sounds like Fukuyama. Kenta mentions that Canna and Fukyama’s voices are very similar and hard to distinguish. Canna says that back then, he was like Basara and a lot of personality traits overlapped when he looks back on what he was like then.
Megu announces that the most requests were for “Angel Voice” by Nekki Basara. Canna mentions that he loves this song and Fukujin always performs it.
