新春初笑い 2012年1月3日奴等が朝に帰って来る!76.1mhzインターFM朝7時~ GMTの3人が沢山のお年玉をプレゼント!!日本においでの方、関東においでの方は是非お聞きくださいませ。

From April of 2006 to October of 2009, the highest rated and most popular radio show at the time was "Good Morning Garage." "GMG" as it was called was the flagship morning show of 76.1 InterFM and was the first time in that station's history to be #1 in ratings in the extremely competitive Tokyo Morning FM radio drive time competitive slot.

L to R: George, Taro, Mike

GMG was the first time that 76.1 InterFM beat the dominant Tokyo FM radio station, J-Wave, in ratings. It was the last time also.

On Tuesday January 3, 2012 the GMG gang with Wakana san will be back for a four hour special that will also feature Feng Shui trainer Shiuma san. It's going to be a blast.

Not only that, there's tons of presents too!

One lucky winner will get a chance to win an Antelope Zodiac DAC converter. This fantastic device converts your crappy sounding MP3 sound files into awesome sounding digital music the way it's supposed to sound.

Another lucky winner will also win the world's best vacuum cleaner, a Dyson DC36!

A lucky pair will win a romantic helicopter tour around Tokyo (just like Tom Cruise had) courtesy of Excel Airport!

Two lucky people will win an iPod Touch!

Three people will win ¥5000 coupons for flower arrangements from "Hana Boukujyo"

And five people will win "Boardsmart face masks" and forty lucky couples will win free ski-lift tickets for Japan's top ski and snow board resorts courtesy of Boardsmart.

And there's much more!

The show is entitled "InterFM New Year's Holiday Special 2012 - Bam!" (featuring George Williams, Taro Furukawa, Wakana san, Feng shui trainer  Shiuma san and finally, me, Mike Rogers)

The above are my sentiments exactly. When I wake up in the morning, I want to laugh and have fun. Peter is a nice guy. He has no business being on a morning show. Put him back to Sunday evenings.

Is there any way to listen online from the states?

Nope, Jimbo, my friend, there's not. Japan's publishing rules do not allow for it. Pathetic, really.

Great to see you back, even if it's only for one morning. I have fond memories of when you guys were on every morning, making Tokyo mornings better for everyone, and playing the odd tiernan song. ;)

We'll be listening tomorrow morning! :)
