ICFJ has joined affiliate programs with CD Japan and Amazon.co.uk! From now on we’ll add links to the playlist for each episode, so you can easily click through and buy the album that features that song. Here’s the playlist for the latest episode, #021.
CD Japan is all in English and delivers most of its items worldwide. It’s been running a loooong time and we’ve used it ourselves, so we know it works great. In general we’ll link to CDs on CD Japan, or sometimes to Amazon if there’s a UK release of the album (like the new Tokumaru Shugo album, which isn’t available on CD Japan but is on Amazon).
CD Japan stocks everything from J-pop to underground Japanese punk to anime songs, plus DVDs, videogames, books and all more, all exported from Japan. It’s a Japanese music geek’s dream!
Every time you click one of those links and make a purchase, we get a little kickback from CD Japan or Amazon. It doesn’t cost you anything extra, so it’s an easy way to support ICFJ while also easily tracking down those hard-to-find Japanese CDs!
The cut we get actually applies to everything you buy after clicking the link, so not just the item we’ve linked to. You could just go to the top page of each site and go shopping instead, using this link for CD Japan and this one for Amazon. Over the next couple of weeks we’ll add links to all the previous episodes too.
