Tokyo Dreams is a show centered around City Pop, a genre featuring the iconic and decadent songs from 1980’s Japan. Inspired by western Pop and Jazz, City Pop captures the care-free and optimistic attitudes of Japan’s 1980’s economic boom. Our show explores these songs and more, taking time to dive into City Pop sub-genres like Vaporwave and Jazz Fusion for our monthly specials. Tune in for a blast from the past!
