      >I would like to buy an album, maybe in a few days.

      Are you going to buy it? It’s very kind to donate to help Japan…but do you like current pop music? (Do you have an MP3 player?)

      >I wanted to ask you if you hear much about how the 50 plant workers are doing?

      Since the accident that hospitalized three of them there hasn’t been news of their health. I suppose “no news is good news”.

      The president of TEPCO, which operates the nuclear plant, became ill from stress.

    I would have liked to see Hear N Aid on there. Most of this stuff I don’t care for, I like Imagine by John Lennon, My Hero by Foo Fighters, Man On the Moon by R.E.M., and Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me by Elton John. But then again this is supposed to mostly pop. I like the idea of the album but these have been done before for Africa and Haiti, I guess a developed country hasn’t gotten an album like this before but I hope you guys are doing well. Apparently there are slightly higher radiataion levels in San Diego, I wonder how much radiation came over seas to the US from Nagasaki and Hiroshima?

      Actually, Farm Aid had been held nearly every year since it started in the ’80s. It’s a charity album and concert to help farmers in the United States.

      >I hope you guys are doing well.

      Japan will recover, I feel certain.

      >There are various great artists.

      Do you like many of these artists?

      Of these, I only like John Lennon (but I’m tired of the song “Imagine“), Bon Jovi, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

        Mmm, I’m not going to buy because I donated at the otheer place and had some of these songs.
        I like John Lennon, Bon jovi, Enya and Elton John.
        However, I know the most famous artists.

        >I donated at the otheer place

        We also donated directly.

        >had some of these songs.

        Of the songs on this album, the only one I have in my collection is “Imagine” by John Lennon.

        I have a few Bon Jovi and Red Hot Chili Peppers albums and one album by Bruce Springsteen.
        I don’t think I’d like many of these songs…I’m not much of a fan of “Top 40” pop music.
