I Miss Flying 747 Tokyo-Sydney

Saturday, January 2nd, 2021

Have a look at my video on YouTube with no snazzy camera work, editing or music – just window seat views, the roar of the engines and flying for fun on my favourite jet the 747.

A few HND QF26 & SYD QF25 overnight flights, including a couple of re-scheduled daytime flights towards the end of the video.

With the Power of Music

Tuesday, May 12th, 2020

WITH THE POWER OF MUSIC was first created in early 2020 as a 20 second jingle for the Guy Perryman radio show on InterFM 897 in Tokyo with lyrics written by Guy and music by singer/songwriter Endigo.

The lyrics took on greater significance as the world changed and life got more difficult for people everywhere so Guy and Endigo decided to expand the jingle into a full song released in May 2020.

With a positive message for people “alone all together” they hope everyone can love, laugh, listen, sing, whistle and hum to make life and our planet happier and healthier!!

Musicians around the world are invited to record their own original version using the lyrics and send to for radio airplay on The Guy Perryman Show InterFM 897 Mon-Fri 7-11am

Here is the first released version by Virtual People

Guy and Endigo both live in Tokyo and didn’t meet face to face until after the song was released. They were introduced on-line by a mutual friend and like so many people around the world create at home and communicate via technology.


With the power of music we can fly
Alone all together reach for the sky
Around the world everyone
Love laugh listen sing whistle and hum

Hoping to walk with you hand in hand
So many apart across every land
Music and daydreams are another way
To imagine us together on a happier day

With the power of music we can fly
Alone all together reach for the sky
Around the world everyone
Love laugh listen sing whistle and hum

The melody takes your soul for a flight
Sunrise, daytime and all through the night
Feel vibrations and your spirits soar
With a song by your side forever more

With the power of music we can fly
Alone all together reach for the sky
Around the world everyone
Love laugh listen sing whistle and hum

At home with time to stop and think why
Maybe just maybe an answer comes by
This virtual life connects me and you
Re-united we’ll heal our real world too

With the power of music we can fly
Alone all together reach for the sky
Around the world everyone
Love laugh listen sing whistle and hum

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。


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。
