MBE Investiture

Saturday, June 17th, 2017

Just had my day at Buckingham Palace!! MBE Investiture on Friday 16 June 2017. Prince Charles presented me with my medal and he was an absolute delight, we had a very friendly chat and a bit of a laugh. It was the most special day and I have to say the spirit of the occasion was a lot of fun with all of the incredible people I met and the welcoming Palace staff. What a lucky man I am. A couple of snaps here, professional photos are on the way.
I shall be writing a full recollection of the day here on my website soon plus reports on the British Chamber of Commerce in Japan website and on LHR – London Hit Radio broadcast across Japan on InterFM 89.7 and Love FM.

New Year Honour

Saturday, December 31st, 2016

I am absolutely overwhelmed and seriously humbled to be included in the British New Year Honours 2017 list appointed MBE for services to British music in Japan.

Music is one of the most vital elements of life and I never underestimate its power. I could not live without it. Being able to connect with people through music and interviewing the musicians who create it is ever inspiring and an honour itself.

It has been an amazing journey broadcasting my favourite music on various radio stations around the world since starting out on public radio as a teenager in the 1980’s. The Japan chapter began in 1990 with Virgin Megastores continuing at InterFM, radio:on and DJ In The Sky.

This very special honour is not just for me, but also for my family, friends and colleagues – you are a huge part of this journey.

Thank you so so much.

Wishing you an exceptional new year filled with music!!

大変光栄なことに、これまでの音楽活動に対し、この度British New Year Honours 2017のMBE(大英帝国勲章5等勲爵士)を受勲することができました。

音楽は私の人生の中でも極めて重要な要素の一つであり、音楽の持つ力を信じて活動して参りました。音楽なしの人生など考えることなどできません。音楽を通して人々と繋がることや、ミュージシャンへの取材ができたことそのものが私にとって大変名誉なことです。

1980年代、私が10代の頃にラジオでの音楽放送のキャリアをスタートし、1990年代にはヴァージンメガストアのDJとして日本での活動を始め、これまでInterFMやDJ In The Sky(ヴァージンアトランティック航空機内でのDJ)といった様々な場で大好きな音楽を皆様にお届けし続けることができたことは、本当に素晴らしいものでした。

この特別な栄誉は決して私だけのものではなく、支えてくれた家族や友人、同僚の皆様のおかげです。

この場を借りて皆様に御礼申し上げます。本当にありがとうございました。

それでは皆様、たくさんの音楽で溢れた良い新年をお過ごしください!!
