Hot Sake at the Roller Disco

This mix is a soundtrack for a particular kind of night.

It starts with happy hour at the sake bar, with fine sake, like Tsukasabotan.
Then it’s back home for some old movies and reruns on TV.
After turning off the tube, it’s time to get your skates on for some roller disco.
