Pete Williams


Pete is on Bayside Radio’s Eclectic Arena show on Friday’s from 8-10pm.

Having been a music teacher for nearly 25 years, Pete has a passion for communicating the pure joy intrinsic to all genres of music, as well as encouraging musicians of all ages.

His day job as Director of Music at Rydal Penrhos School, sees him teaching, composing, arranging and improvising music, but he has also had two of his musicals performed locally; ‘Hot Wheelz’ and ‘Ebeneezer Scrooge’.

Like many musicians with today’s access to technology, Pete loves to make recordings in his spare time. "I have lots of hobby projects that I put onto YouTube, under different names; ‘LOBES’, ‘Ivor and the Discoverables’, ‘Pedro’s Recordshelf’, ‘The Eclectic Vibes’ ‘EOS’. I’m a big believer in getting the music in your head, out to be listened too".

A dedicated family man, Pete lives in Old Colwyn with his wife Eleri and three daughters and is delighted to be presenting Eclectic Arena.

"There are wonderful listening experiences to be had, irrespective of genre. Whether it’s a classic recording or a performance given in a local school, I’m hoping to present as many of these as I can!"
