Pete Murray is back!

Catch legendary radio presenter Pete Murray on Boom  on Boxing Day - as he returns to radio after 20 years, aged 96!

I’ll fluff a bit, I know it – but that’s age, I guess!”

Pete's broadcasting career proper began in the 1940s on Radio Luxembourg.  Moving to the BBC, he hosted shows on the BBC Light Programme. before joining BBC Radio 1 as it made its debut in 1967.

OnTV, Pete was seen on Six-Five Special, Thank Your Lucky Stars, David Jacobs's Juke Box Jury - not to mention Top of the Pops in its earliest days. 

Pete is perhaps most fondly remembered for his time at BBC Radio 2, where his Open House programme, with its familiar ‘ding-dong’ signature tune, became part of British life for a decade.

On his Boom Radio Boxing Day show, presented from the basement of his London home, he’ll demonstrate the breadth of his own tastes: ‘They are catholic – I like anything that’s’ good. From 10cc’s I’m Not in Love to Ella Fitzgerald and Brook Benton’.

Pete Murray – Boxing Day, December 26th at 5pm.
