On radio show, Murakami talks music, runningWhile hosting a special radio show featuring some of his favorite tunes, best-selling Japanese author Haruki Murakami says writing novels – like music and running – is about rhythm. "Murakami Radio," a prerecorded show broadcast Sunday night, featured running and music as two crucial elements of his life as a novelist. During the 55-minute show, Murakami played nine rock and jazz numbers he runs to, selected from thousands of titles stored on several iPods, while sharing stories behind the songs and talking about running and writing.Murakami started running soon after becoming a novelist, initially to lose weight he'd gained from long hours of sitting while writing.Murakami opened the show with Donald Fagen's "Madison Times," originally composed by jazz pianist Ray Bryant.
