Pete Baker Biog

Hi I'm Pete Baker and welcome to my bit of the Signal 107 Website!

What is your full name? Pete Baker

When is your birthday? 8th August 1974

Where did you grow up? Burntwood, South Staffs

What's your favourite alcoholic drink? Why, are you buying? OK, i'll have a Budweiser, Smirnoff Ice, or one of those in a bottle that looks and tastes like antifreeze or cough medicine!

What was the worst job you ever had? Probably my paper round - I covered other peoples rounds too and ended up taking on half of staffordshire (or at least it felt like it)

Name the first record you bought? I think it was a picture disc of Roland Rat singing Elvis' Love me Tender. Would you like me to play it?

Name one or more of your favorite records? This is always a nightmare question as I like SO many different songs and styles. A few random faves... INXS - Never tear us apart, Billie Ray Martin - Your Loving Arms, Nu Shooz - I can't wait, Londonbeat - I've been thinking about you

What song would you have played at your funeral? Something to make everyone dance, i'm not into sad soppy moments!

What's your favorite film? Again, I like so many - especially a good comedy like Anchorman. You stay Classy San Diego!

What annoys you more than anything? I'm fairly good with computers - But sorry the answer here is friends who call me and expect me to be able to fix theirs over the phone, but don't have a clue what they're doing and expect me to teach them basics at the same time..."Go into the control panel"..."Oh, do I need to switch it on first?"

Describe how you looked in 1990? Younger, Slimmer, and I had my school uniform on for half of it

What's your favorite food? I love a great Roast Dinner.

What food do you dislike? Sushi. I'm not into fish unless it's been cooked, cooked and cooked some more, covered in batter then left under a fish shop counter for a couple of hours

What's the best Christmas present you ever had? CD Player (when they were new), I'd wanted one for my birthday but didn't get one - I must have made it very clear that's the next present I wanted!

Where is your favourite place in the world? I love warm places that don't set off my hayfever, particularly Southern Cyprus and Florida.

If you could have anything in the world, what would it be? Anything? OK i'll have Everything!

Most embarassing moment on Radio? After speaking to a caller live for a competition, saying "Well that was crap" and realising the mic was still on. I went so red you could see it on the radio.
