Top 3 Video Countdown for Oct. 12, 2019! Glam Skanks, Beater's Band, BimBamBoom (Jpn), Frankie Safari!

We're back to the Top 3 Video Countdown for Oct. 12, 2019!

First up today is a band from Los Angeles, California and their name is the Glam Skanks. The Glam Skanks bio says: "If David Bowie, Jimmy Page, Marc Bolan and Joe Perry hooked up with the Runaways, their love babies might be called GLAM SKANKS. Fresh, yet familiar, a sound that contains the best elements of classic guitar-driven rock, presented by four ferocious females that are brilliant musicians and explosive stage performers."

Here's their Facebook:

#3) Glam Skanks-Don't Waste It:

Next up is a band from Itay! They are called The Beaters Band! Their bio states that they, "...rearrange songs from the American Rock'n'Roll 50's 60's, giving it new life in a more current and fresh PunkRock key, keeping the original soul.
In a few months THE BEATERSBAND have enjoyed great satisfaction.
Refer to PNX News,, entered the Rodney on the Rock.
Their music is broadcast daily by many Web Radio and FM stations in every part of the World. Our Album is distributed not only in Italy but also Japan, Holland, Austria, United States, Brasil, Espana, Canada and the Philippines."

Yeah, they have a Facebook:


And at this week's number one is a band from Bern, Switzerland called, Frankie Safari! Frankie's bio says this must be a superstar band? "All together Frankie’s cast gather half a century of hard boiling rock’n’roll experiences with bands like The Dead, The Monsigniores, The Babies, Gebrüder Ritalin and many more. Their live show is furious, loud and sweaty, preformed with all of their dark gone hearts and their music is a exotic, raw and hypnotic rollercoaster ride to the bottom of the soul! It’s a safari to the rocky fields of the stoner’s desert, the sweet and delinquent spots of rock’n’roll, the obscure and wild homelands of swampy rhythm and blues, the wide prairie of the dead men’s country and to the windy oceans of seedy blues – with a little break at the Surf-Inn."

Here's their Facebook page:

#1) Frankie Safari – I Want Love

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Today's Spotlight Artist is one of my newest favorite things, a Funk band from Tokyo called, BimBamBoom! BimBamBoom isn't like most bands we play on the Top 3, it's a funk sound with a cool sax and James Bond guitar. In fact, all the girls in this band are amazing musicians! Wow!

About Mike in Tokyo Rogers: Mike has been a professional music/TV/radio/anime-related program producer in Japan since the eighties. He began in the music business in 1977 as lead vocalist with the legendary Los Angeles Punk Band, “The Rotters” (Sit on My Face Stevie Nix.). As a university student, he was assistant to the legendary Rodney Bingenheimer (Rodney on the ROQ – KROQ Los Angeles from 1980 ~ 1981.) Mike was the first and only foreigner in Japanese history to become the General Manager of a major Japanese broadcasting station (TV Tokyo owned InterFM). Has produced a few smash hit programs (some real losers, too!) and several of Tokyo’s highest rated and most famous radio programs. A recent hit Internet TV program was “The TV Show” (Set Program with “Ninja Slayer”) which, between April – Oct. 2015, garnered over 10 million viewers.  He is currently producing and hosting “The Mike Rogers Show” daily around the world!

Also, Mike is the creator and founder of the Mt. Fuji – Atami Film & VR Festival. Also his life’s dream is his just completed full-length motion picture, “Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock and Roll Ghost Story,” which enjoyed its World-Premiere at the Raindance Film Festival in London on Sept. 25, 2017, and was released by a major Japanese motion picture company and in theaters all across Japan from Sept. 2017 ~ Mar. 2018.  The DVD and Blu-Ray went on sale all across Japan on June 13, 2018! His next project, “Matsuchiyo – Life of a Geisha” world premiered at the 2018 Raindance Film Festival in Oct. 2018.

Mike is also an Official Jury member to the Raindance Film Festival in London making him the first person ever to serve as a Jury Member from Japan in Raindance Film Festival history.  

… Oh, and he likes to write about himself in the third person!
