Fan mail #1: “Gaki-san, Kame-chan, good evening!” The first fan mail points out how fun all of the listeners’ radio names can be. Thus, he asks for the hosts to think of their own radio names.
Kame comes up with her radio name in mere seconds: “Jeoneun” (Korean for “I“). It’s a word she really likes. Some other Korean suggestions they come up with include “Naengmyeon” and “Halmeoni” (“Grandma“). Ultimately, though, Gaki-san decides on “Short Gaki” which is a nickname she came up with in Hawaii. Kame nearly chooses “Chotto Eri” (“A Little Bit Eri“) before finally settling on “Mou Eri” (“Eri Already“).
Kame: Pencil sharpeners…
Kame: …really are amazing, aren’t they?
Gaki-san: While I have no idea what Kamei-san is going on about, let us blow away the awkward atmosphere in the room with this song.
Fan mail #1: “Eririiiiiiin!!! It is now springtime. Please do an impression of a nightingale.“
Song: Morning Musume – Genki Pikappika!
Fan mail #2: Morning Musume held a fanclub tour in Hawaii last month, and the listener wishes to know all about it!
“Hawaii sure was fun,” the hosts agree. Gaki-san explains: “the atmosphere in Hawaii… it’s like, the fans all go back to being young boys and girls.” Something Kame found memorable about the tour was how (physically) close the members were to the fans — at times during the quiz event, there wasn’t even a full meter between them! But, at the end of the day, the no. 1 most memorable thing for the hosts was the live show. “There’s something about that feeling of performing outdoors,” Gaki-san explains. “You get to watch the sunset as you perform!“
Fan mail #1: The listener congratulates the hosts for this show now having been on the air for a full year! On the very first episode, Kame talked about how she had matured somewhat: on their previous radio show together, Kame would only receive a one-page script per episode whereas Gaki-san always got the full version. Beginning with the this show, however, Kame started receiving the full version as well. Now that a year has passed, the listener wishes to know if Kame continues to get the same script as Gaki-san.
Kame says that, “in a sense” she now receives a bit less: the version of the script that Gaki-san receives is in a bigger font so as to allow her to make notes and such. Meanwhile, Kame prefers a really small font so everything can fit on a single A4 sheet of paper. In any case, the hosts are happy about the show’s first birthday. Gaki-san remembers how, back when it was still starting, Kame would interrupt her reading of the show’s email address with her pointless mumbling. These days, however, Kame will often say actual words instead.
Which reminds Gaki-san: some time ago, they were in the car listening to the episode where Kame suddenly did her “disgusting moaning” — twice. This apparently made Gaki-san’s dad, who was in the car with her, quite worried about Kame. With that said: the two happily agree to keep doing their best towards the show’s second birthday and beyond!
Kame (in a sexy voice): Daddy~ ♪
Kame (in a sexy voice): I leave Risa to you… ♪
Gaki-san: Eww! Gross! (laughs) I can already picture my dad grinning to himself again if he hears this…!
Kame: Daddy… ♪ (giggles)
Fan mail #1: The listener is second grade middle schooler whose hobby is baseball. He asks the hosts what their favorite positions in the game are.
Gaki-san asked one of her managers to explain to her about the game so the two could answer the question properly. While she was at it, she asked what he thought their positions should be. The manager thinks Gaki-san would make for a good catcher as it’s a position where you can see the whole playing field. Kame, he thinks, would probably be a right fielder — not many balls end up all the way back there so it wouldn’t matter even if she was just spacing off most of the time.
Kame says she’s later going to harass the manager in question with incessant phone calls.
Song: Morning Musume – Genki Pikappika!
Fan mail #1: The listener has something they say they “reeeeeeeeeeeeeally” must tell our hosts.
Kame: (as listener:) “Niigaki Risa-san… Kamei Eri-san… suki dasu. Oh, wait. I made a mistake. I mean: suki desu. Phew, feels good getting it off my chest.” Well, what do you think Gaki-san? Your answer? We were confessed to just now!
Gaki-san: Um… Does this person not kind of resemble you?
Kame: Why do you say that?
That aside, the hosts are thankful — they agree it feels good to be told you’re liked. Kame says her heart is filled with love.
Song: Morning Musume – Ookii Hitomi
Gaki-san starts the 50th episode of the show by reading a fan letter. The fan has heard that Kame’s cheesecakes are famously well-liked by members of Morning Musume, and so they wish to know if the two hosts often get to do much cooking.
Gaki-san makes it clear: Kame’s cheesecakes really are delicious. The two were actually just talking about this the day before, about how it’s really no good if a girl can’t cook properly. Kame, however, immediately says that she no longer cooks. Still, she thinks she might get back into it around Valentine’s Day next year — like they discussed earlier, being good at cooking immediately boosts your womanliness. Gaki-san agrees, and wants to one day be able to cook foods that are easy and fast, and yet, delicious. That’s the type of woman the hosts both agree to aim for.
Kame kicks off the show by introducing a quick message from a listener, who wishes simply to inform them that Gaki-san’s “here we go~” she does at the beginning of corners on the show is “really cute.” Kame asks what her co-host thinks of this sudden confession of love. Gaki-san is glad to receive these words of praise, but explains that the only reason she actually says that is because otherwise Kame wouldn’t understand that it’s time to move the show along. It’s more of a “Kame, come on, here we go! We’re reading some fan mail next!” type of thing more than anything else. Kame thinks Gaki-san is pretty smart for coming up with this method all by herself.
Song: Morning Musume – Namidacchi
Gaki-san: Here we go~!
Gaki–Kame: Let’s read some messages!
Kame: To your battle stations!
Gaki-san: … You’re listening to interFM Monday regulars, Morning Musume Niigaki Risa and…
Kame: Kamei Eri. (giggles)
Gaki-san: What the heck was that?! Going all “to your battle stations” or something… (laughs)
Kame: (laughs) I was just responding to your “here we go~!“
Kame: It’s already March!
Gaki-san: Yes it is.
Kame: So let’s do our customary fashion check!
Gaki-san: … Customary? We’ve never done anything like that on the show.
Kame: Huh? Weren’t we always the two fashion leaders?
Fashion leaders or not, Kame begins by introducing Gaki-san’s fashion of the day. She says the theme of Gaki-san’s outfit is “flying squirrels and the letter A.” Whatever it is that she’s wearing, Kame thinks it looks warm. Gaki-san thinks Kame’s fashion looks quite grown-up today, with a knitted sweater and a glittery skirt. Kame reveals that she’s wearing HEATTECH below — if you look closely enough, you can even see it.
Gaki-san: Dot… Argh, I lost track! five-nk
Kame: (Risa…! Risa…!)
Gaki-san: @interfm.jp. It’s your fault for throwing in random hyphens!
Kame: Sorry. (laughs)
