GEOFF PEGLER

Geoff is entering his 30th year of broadcasting, BluesBeatRadio is heard locally, nationally and worldwide.

Geoff has been involved with judging Blues festival and Blues Album awards on numerous occasions. Above all this is his passion for all types of blues music.

Geoff endeavors to bring you 1 hour of the very best in blues, soul and roots from new releases received. Australian content is usually around 50%.

“Maximum blues music without the hype.”

Technology has changed greatly in this period and BluesBeatRadio is independently produced from Geoff’s home studio in Wentworth New South Wales now (on the Junction of the mighty Murray & Darling rivers).

A far cry from when he first started with sending his program to stations and the Community Radio Network satellite for broadcast around Australia.

Back then, recording equipment was a tape deck, and play out two Sony Discmans connected with a small Realistic mixer. Now it is recorded at home on state of the art digital equipment and uploaded to various broadcast destinations around Australia and the world.
