Sony Radio Academy Award winner Pete Mitchell is the voice behind This Day in Music’s podcasts – his music documentaries have been aired all over the world. Pete worked as a radio presenter for Manchester’s Piccadilly Radio, Key 103, Virgin Radio, BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, XFM and Virgin Radio.
Sadly, Pete died suddenly in March 2020. A consummate professional, a great broadcaster, a proper music aficionado and above all else a really good bloke, with so many tales to share. We all miss him.
