Host #1: Let me introduce the Smashing Pumpkins. They were number one on the college charts and they won Best New Group and Debut Album of the year. They have been playing in the Chicago area since 1980(!). Their live shows are incredibly powerful

[Iha looks down embarrassed]
Host #1: Do you speak Japanese?
[Iha shakes head]
Corgan: He's second... second generation
Host #2: Oh I'm sorry
