Taking its name from Tokyo governor Yuriko Koike’s message for residents to avoid going out, Stay Home Special will see Murakami dipping into his 10,000+ record collection.

“I’m hoping that the power of music can do a little to blow away some of the corona-related blues that have been piling up,” he explains.

During the show, Murakami will also accept questions from listeners.

No stranger to radio, since 2018, Murakami has hosted a quarterly show called Murakami Radios on Tokyo FM.

Stay Home Special will air on Tokyo FM 80.0 and 38 stations in Japan on Friday, the 22nd May, from 1:00 – 2:55 PM (GMT)
