Pete Jury was born in Croydon, grew up in Bedfordshire and moved to Lincolnshire in 2006, finally settling on the outskirts of Lincoln in 2009.
His love for music goes back to 1978 when he bought his first 45 – 5p from the village jumble sale – that record was Hermans Hermits ” I’m into something good”. A Dansette mono record player from mum and dad for his birthday gave him the means to play records.
When car boot sales came about in the mid 1980’s he became a regular buyer at every sale he could get to.
This resulted in a growing collection of 50’s, 60’s and 70’s records with 80’s music being available in high street shops.
By 1990 his growing love of all things old and mechanical and job as an electrician enabled him to build his own mobile disco from scratch using parts from boot sales and scrounged from work. This is where he gained experience as a DJ.
Over the years since he has collected an impressive collection of 45, 33 and 78 rpm records from around 1910 to 1990. Add to that around 300 CD’s and you can see why he wanted to be a presenter at Lincoln City Radio. He has a varied taste in music from early music hall, through 30’s dance bands to the great music of the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.
Today Peter owns and runs a small business just outside Lincoln. His hobby apart from music and radio is restoring and driving vintage cars. He’s also a keen motorcyclist.
