Pete Murray

Born 19 September 1928




Pete moved from acting to Radio Luxembourg where he established himself as one of that station’s top names. He later broadened his appeal with the launch of a Saturday night show Pete’s Party on the BBC Light Programme while still recording shows for Luxembourg.

In the mid-1960s, he was dropped by the BBC after presenting sponsored shows on Radio Caroline and Radio London, but was picked up by BBC Radio 1 at its launch.
After presenting shows for BBC Radio 2 and Radio 4 Murray moved to LBC where he remained until 2002.
