5pm until 7pm Local Time for French Listeners.



Pete has been active in soul music for over 40 years, starting as a DJ just after leaving school and persuading his parents to purchase a disco unit for him. Gigs at local pubs, clubs and events followed which saw him working alongside the top name DJ’s of the day.

Jazz Funk and R&B feature high on his playlists and vinyl his preferred choice as the raw clean sound delivered by vinyl is so noticeable to discerning ears. Back in the day he played on many of the unlicensed soul radio stations in and around London, including Soul FM.

In 2012 he formed RCM Records with partner and friend Roger Brooks, the label went on to release several soul music tracks, all on Vinyl with moderate success.

After moving to Brittany France in 2016 and taking his vast collection of music with him (most on vinyl), he has carried on his love of DJing in local venues, returning to radio when Chocolate Radio invited him to do the Saturday and Sunday afternoon shows.
