Peter Twyford

A little about Peter.

Peter has been in involved within the radio or entertainments industry since the sixties, entertaining for many big name companies such as the Ford Motor Company and Tate and Lyles. Like many things in life, this was not the original plan and all came about thanks to Ready Steady Go pulling out of a venue at the last minute and Peter standing up to the challenge of providing the tunes instead. It was quite a challenge as he had only two Dansette record players, an old amplifier and speakers and his mates collection of records. He must have been pretty good though, Ready Steady Go lasted 6 months at the venue and Peter went on for two and a half years!

In more recent times, Peter spent 14 years hosting a Hospital Radio show in Colchester and did a stint on an Essex FM community radio station too.

A proud owner of a Vespa and a bit of a mod, Peter has met many of the sixties offshore jocks on his travels and is delighted to bring his knowledge of the sixties and seventies sounds and stories to Big L International.
