Hey, thanks for checking out my site! My name is Pete Bailey I’m a Radio Presenter & Producer, Podcaster, Music Programmer, Voice-Over Artist, Traveller, Club DJ and generally a compulsive geek.
I guess the story starts in 2008, when I was a student at Glyndwr University in Wrexham, North Wales and was trying to find my feet in the murky business of the music industry. I spent a lot of time doing live sound engineering, crewing and brewing an insane amount of tea at the local venue Central Station, but through various friends I quickly found myself becoming heavily involved with the community radio station; Calon FM.
I setup "The Metalheadz" radio show and within a few months was interviewing the likes of Opeth, Iron Maiden & Slash and I'm delighted to say that The Metalheadz is still on air today on Calon FM. After graduating university in 2010 with a BSc (Hons) 2:1 in Studio Recording & Performance Technology I continued presenting at Calon FM whilst running my own artist management / PR company "Scream Aloud" where I had the pleasure of working with Arceye, Betraeus, Impaled Existence and With One Last Breath.
In 2012 I made the jump to national radio joining Q Radio hosting "The Rock Show" as well as being a swing presenter for Kerrang! Radio, then in the same year I was offered a position at Nuclear Blast Records as promotions manager for the UK, London office. After a couple of years of working in both press and radio it was in 2013 that I decided to pursue radio full time and joined the newly formed TeamRock Radio as a presenter & producer, eventually progressing to Music Editor (Head of Music) until June 2016.
Most recently I have just started my own podcast "Wonder Junkie" which is an outlet where I can delve deeper into various subject areas, I've always had a lot of curiosity about the world, the way it works and what makes people tick. So you can expect to hear interviews with everyone from scientists to musicians, actors to authors, travellers to entrepreneurs and everyone in between.
If you would like to get in touch with me about Radio, DJ’ing or Voice-Over just drop me a line via firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
