Pete Bailey is Radio Presenter, Audio Producer, Podcaster, Music Programmer, Voice-Over Artist and generally a bit of a compulsive geek. 

Graduating from Glyndŵr University in Wrexham, North Wales in 2010, Pete spent a lot of his time live sound engineering, crewing and brewing an insane amount of tea at the local venue Central Station, but through various friends he quickly found his path into radio becoming heavily involved with the community radio station; Calon FM. 

Pete setup The Metalheadz radio show and within a few months was interviewing the likes of Iron Maiden, Killswitch Engage, Slash (Guns N' Roses) and racked up over 250,000 views for the accompanying YouTube Channel.  After graduating university with a BSc (Hons) 2:1 in Studio Recording & Performance Technology he continued presenting at Calon FM whilst running his own Artist Management & PR company; Scream Aloud where he worked with Arceye, Betraeus, Impaled Existence and With One Last Breath. 

In 2012, Pete 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 he was offered a position at Nuclear Blast Records as promotions manager for the UK, London office overseeing Radio & TV campaigns for Hatebreed, Testament and Sylosis. After a couple of years of working in both press and radio, it was in 2013 that Pete decided to pursue radio full time and joined the then newly formed national DAB station TeamRock as a presenter and producer, eventually progressing to Head Of Music until June 2016. 

Inspired by Carl Sagan, Pete launched his own podcast Wonder Junkie, where he delves deeper into various subject areas, featuring interviews with the likes of ESA Astrophysicist Dr. Matt Taylor, Emmy Award winning actor Mandy Patinkin and curator at London's Imperial War Museum; Matt Brosnan. 

In 2017, Pete along with his former colleagues at TeamRock Radio (Moose, Dewsbury & Engineer Mark) launched the crowd funded Primordial Radio; a brand new UK radio station for the rock and metal community. Initially starting out as a podcast, they went on to setup a crowdfunding campaign via Seedrs where a staggering 853 investors backed the project to the tune of £150,000 by the end of the campaign.
