Tokyo ON #048: Everything you wanted to know about AKB48*


This is episode number 48 of Tokyo ON, and not only does that mean you can listen to Tokyo ON back to back for 24 hours now, it also calls for a one-off super special on everything AKB48. Maction Planet Resident DJ Royce Leong personally takes you back to where it all started for both AKB48 and himself in 2005/2006 (what’s a smartphone?), and gives you an overview of the sound, structure and style of AKB48 from a number of different angles as only Tokyo ON can - in fact this episode somehow contains Japanese, English, Korean and Bahasa, as well as Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, KARA and TWICE. It’s everything you could possibly want to know about AKB48*
