Episode 4: Where Are They Now?

Junko Ohashi
Today we’re going to be doing a little “Where are they now?” kind of thing.  Most of these bands haven’t had nearly the same kind of rediscovery that Mariya Takeuchi had with "Plastic Love,", but they’ve stayed pretty busy, so I thought it would be fun to see what some of them have been up to since the 80s.
