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。
