JPopcast Playlist #29 - January 23/07

New Year Moon
It's getting colder in Toronto as the Arctic winds stay with us for a couple of days, but you can always count on us, DJ San Fran and Christine Miguel to heat it up in the studio with our eclectic mixed bag of music and news.

Safe for several major technical difficulties, DJ San Fran managed to save the show, which is the reason why;
a) you don't hear the usual intro and theme,
b) Hyori's Anystar was cut short and
c) the show is shorter than usual.

It's live radio, what can you do? You will forgive us this time, won't you?

1. Chemistry feat. John Legend - Tokage
2. Sugar - Sweet Day
3. Paris Match - Taiyou no Kuchizuke
4. Mihimaru GT - Kibun Jojo

- music clip for news segment taken from:
Masia One - Split Second Time

5. GO! GO! 7188 - Jet Ninjin
6. Kim Ah Joong 김아중 feat. Loveholic - Maria - from the OST '200 Pounds Beauty'
7. trf - Island on Your Mind

9. Hyori 이효리 feat Lee Junki 이준키 - AnyStar
10. Yuna Ito - Endless Story (Little Big Bee Mix) - Original version from the OST 'Nana'
