When Victory first begun BTI – before the Internet (was there ever such a time?) Pete – a music historian – was called in for research and give opinions as a guest on some shows and helped out the record librarian. At the time Pete ran October Records on Fratton Bridge where many of the presenters used to visit. He also worked as an international music journalist.
He wrote articles and reviews for the station’s magazine and was a keen member of the football team playing matches for charity.
He later worked on various other radio stations including the BBC, Commercial and Community Radio services as well as being a senior manager in cable television. It was here that the next Victory connection happened when CJ Munroe and Mark Samways approached Pete about transmitting the latest incarnation of Victory on cable TV.
After many meetings Pete gave permission and in November 1995 – Victory was back.
Following many years working with other local radio stations winning awards for not just broadcasting but also training potential presenters, Pete returns to Victory.
With his well-researched shows, he is delighted to join such a strong team of broadcasters – many of whom he has worked with before, and since he used to live close to the new studios, it really is like coming home. Oh, and he’s a long-time season ticket holder at Fratton Park too.
