That's My Jam is a weekly feature where one person from the Selective Hearing staff goes to wax poetic about music that is pivotal to their musical tastes. Whether that would be an album, a song, or anything in-between. We all had to start somewhere. This week: New Edition's Heart Break.
A fourth-generation Japanese American, Hiro is on the wrong side of 40 and shows no visible signs of fanboy behavior unless standing a few feet from an Asian celebrity while getting an autograph or handshake. His brushes with fame include Kago Ai, Berryz Kobo, Twins, SCANDAL, and numerous Japanese puroresu legends. He hopes to add more names to that list in the near future.

AKB48 was created with the concept of "Idols You Can Meet". In October, Hiro will get to personally experience an important part of AKB48 fandom, as Selective Hearing and NSK return to Japan to attend an AKB48 Kobetsu Akushukai for the release of "Koi Suru Fortune Cookie".
