It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown for Jan. 20, 2018!
First up is an DJ/artist who was introduced to us by Marc Platt who runs the Radio Indie Alliance as well as the radio show/promotion known as Radio Candy. The artist’s name is Elmo Weber. Elmo lives in the Ultra-cool Hollywood area of Los Angeles somewhere near the corner of Bedlam and Squalor Blvd. Not much is know about this mysterious man and his enigmatic ways but I can tell you one thing, he makes the most awesome mashups I’ve ever heard. Today’s track is an unthinkable mashup of the 1958 Hollywood movie version of the musical, “South Pacific” …and Led Zeppelin…. Yes. You read correctly.
I played this on my new radio show, The Mike Rogers Show (Please come Like our Facebook) and the reaction was incredible. The best reaction from the listeners in at least 5 years. People were going nuts on Facebook and Twitter (Follow on Twitter) asking where they can get this track. It is already a legendary track on FM radio in Japan. Play it loud.

About Mike in Tokyo Rogers: Mike has been a professional music/TV/radio/anime-related program producer in Japan since the eighties. He began in the music business in 1977 as lead vocalist with the legendary Los Angeles Punk Band, “The Rotters” (Sit on My Face Stevie Nix.). As a university student, he was assistant to the legendary Rodney Bingenheimer (Rodney on the ROQ – KROQ Los Angeles from 1980 ~ 1981.) Mike was the first and only foreigner in Japanese history to become the General Manager of a major Japanese broadcasting station (TV Tokyo owned InterFM). Has produced a few smash hit programs (some real losers, too!) and several of Tokyo’s highest rated and most famous radio programs. A recent hit program was “The TV Show” (Set Program with “Ninja Slayer”) which, between April – Oct. 2015, garnered over 10 million viewers. He is currently producing and hosting “The Mike Rogers Show” every Sunday live on InterFM 89.7 in Tokyo and Radio Neo in Nagoya 79.5 and nationally broadcast on Radiko.jp (Internet radio). And his life’s dream is his just completed full-length motion picture, “Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock and Roll Ghost Story”which will be released by a major Japanese motion picture company and in theaters all across Japan in Autumn 2017.
