Running, music and novel writing — these were the topics of a special one-off radio show by best-selling author Haruki Murakami.

During the 55-minute show “Murakami Radio,” the novelist played some of the songs he loves to listen to while jogging.

Murakami said he never planned to be a writer. After finishing university, he ran a jazz bar in Tokyo and music was his thing, and that’s where his writing style comes from, the 69-year-old said.

The Kyoto native said he never learned how to write novels. Instead, his style is musical. He pays a lot of attention to “rhythms, harmony and improvisation.”

Rock music is his usual choice for running to keep a steady pace, Murakami said. He recommended “songs that you can sing along to, ideally those that give you courage.”

The show was prerecorded and broadcast in the evening on Tokyo FM. (AP)
