Andy Peebles

Born 13 December 1948




A music broadcaster who learned his craft as a club DJ, Andy first appeared on radio in Manchester before moving to London. He has successfully mixed music and sport, commentating on cricket for more than two decades and interviewing top musicians and sports personalities.

In 1980, he recorded a marathon three-hour interview with John and Yoko for BBC Radio 1. Two days later John Lennon was shot dead, leaving the Lennon Tapes as the final summary of his life.

Andy currently presents shows on Smooth Radio including Soul Train which he uses to share his knowledge and commitment to the soul music genre with a large and enthusiastic audience.
