Hi Blog. Got this info from Japanese TV personality, music specialist, and all-around nice guy Peter Barakan. Edited for public consumption. Listen in if you can, even contribute your opinions… Arudou Debito in Sapporo
Hi Dave. It’s been quite a while since I met you at that Amnesty get together. I try to keep up with your posts as far as I can.
I’m writing today to let you know about a radio show on NHK’s AM radio in which I’ll be taking part. It’s “Iki-iki Hotline,” on Thursday Dec. 6th, from 5 to 6 pm, and is the fourth of five shows on topics related to foreigners in Japan.
The details are not yet up on NHK’s website, but the show I’ll be on is entitled:
外国人はどう望む? 日本社会での暮らし （外国人の意見）
and the accompanying blurb goes:
I’ll be the only guest that day, but they take faxes, emails, and in some cases phone calls from listeners during the show, which is live. I met with the director today, and he said he would welcome input from foreign residents, so I immediately thought of [Debito.org].
I intend to talk about the new immigration fiasco, among other things, but something on human rights, for example, might be interesting. I’ll leave it to you. Please feel free to pass the word on to anyone else who might be interested.
