Pete Cogle

So you’ve just landed on this page and you’re wondering “who the hell is this Pete Cogle bloke?

Well he’s probably best known as being a podcaster. If you click on the pages PC Podcast, The Dub Zone, The Dub Step Zone, The Hip Hop Zone for example, you’ll see a page with a music player and a couple of links for an RSS feed and iTunes, if you want to download the podcasts to your MP3 player.

He’s was also an important part of the Association of Music Podcasting between May 2006 and February 2012 and is still an active member of the Made In The UK podcast collective.

Outside of podcasting he’s just a normal bloke really:  husband & father of a son and daughter. Although originally trained as a geophysicist, he moved into IT and has worked for a couple of big software houses.

He’s never worked in Campus Radio, Hospital Radio or any other types of Radio. He’s never been a DJ (although he’d like to give it a try) and although he dabbles with playing the guitar and the drums, he’s never been in a band.

He started podcasting because he’s always liked great music and sharing it with his friends. If he’s in any doubt whether or not he should play a track he asks himself “what would John Peel do?“. This, invariably means the track gets played, whether it’s in a foreign language or just plain weird. He’s sure John Peel’s up there nodding in approval.

He’s met a lot of good mates through podcasting. If you like what he does then drop him a line at pete.cogle@gmail.com, follow him on twitter, or become a friend on facebook.
