Starting this Friday 11th January 4 LEGS radio is delighted to announce a new weekly show hosted by ex-BBC Radio 1 DJ and Magpie Presenter Pete Brady.
Initially the show will be for 1 hour from 9am with the aim of a 2 hour slot starting at 8am within the next couple of months. Pete will be playing a variety of great music (not just old stuff) and also conducting some live and pre-recorded interviews on the subject of support for head and neck cancer patients, their carers, relatives and friends.
About Pete Brady
Pete Brady is a Canadian radio and television presenter, who has been working in the United Kingdom for over 50 years. He was one of the original line-up on BBC Radio 1 and one of the original presenters of Magpie. Pete lives locally in Shefford Woodlands.
Following a similar path to DJs Tony Blackburn, Kenny Everett and Simon Dee from pirate stations such as Radio London and Luxemburg, he made the natural progression to BBC Radio 1 at its launch in September 1967. Pete was given a major six-day-a-week afternoon slot Monday to Saturdays. He played a varied mix of current pop and rock music.
In July 1968, he became one of the original presenters of Thames Television’s new youth magazine programme, Magpie. During his time on TV he found difficulty maintaining his Radio 1 shows and left BBC Radio late in 1968. He continued with Magpie until 1971, when he returned to radio hosting the afternoon show on BBC Radio 2.
