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. His first podcast PC Podcast, started in January 2006 ad has been going (with a couple of minor stoppages) ever since. His second podcast The Dub Zone, started in May 2007 and has been going ever since.
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 or Hospital 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
PC Podcast (PCP) is a music show that is an eclectic mix of Indie, Rock, Reggae, Dub, Dubstep, Blues, EDM, Trip-Hop, Hip-Hop, Jazz and lots of other genres too difficult to describe. Winner of the “Personality Award” in the 2010 European Podcast Awards, PCP started in January 2006 and (with a few stoppages) is still going strong.
The Dub Zone (TDZ) is a monthly podcast and is a mix of, usually, 8 of the best dub tracks in a 30-40 minute mix.
