Pete Price Life

Peter Lloyd Price (born 25 January 1946) is a British media personality and radio presenter, based in Liverpool, England.

He is best known for the Sunday night talk radio show Pete Price: Unzipped, which was broadcast across sister stations City Talk 105.9 and Radio City 96.7.

The show aired live from 10 pm to 2 am and followed an open forum format.

Price also had a weeknight phone in, Late Night City which aired live between 22.00h and 02.00h, from Monday to Thursday and was simulcast on City Talk 105.9 and Radio City 96.7.

In 2017 Price announced that he was cutting back his show from 5 nights a week to just Sunday night.

He now hosts Pete Price’s Sunday Best at 10pm - 1am every Sunday, where his weekly phone in guest for the last 13 years has been Dr.

Angie McCartney, step-mother to Sir Paul, who lives in Los Angeles and provides the show's Hollywood Gossip live from LA. As a comedian he was a winner on the ITV talent show, New Faces.

He is also an author, patron and artist for Claire House Children's Hospice and columnist for the Liverpool Echo.

He is openly gay, which is often the subject of prank calls to his radio show.

He is dyslexic and can have trouble reading texts or emails on air.

To complement his radio show Price also gives out a personal phone number for listeners to talk to him in confidence.

Early life

Peyer Lloyd Price was born in Wrexham on 25 January 1946. He was adopted at approximately three months old, in April 1946, by Hilda Sandra Price and David William Lloyd. He was raised in West Kirby, Cheshire. He was notably closer to his mother than his father, who repeatedly was violent towards Price's mother. When he was 12, he came to terms with his homosexuality, but his doctor told him he would "grow out of it". Two years later, he went back to the same doctor, only to be prescribed Valium. A combination of his homosexuality, problems with school, and problems in his social life put him into a state of despair; at the age of 14, he attempted to overdose on child-strength aspirin, only to wake up the next morning.

At the age of 15, Price was working as a hairdresser at the weekend whilst studying cookery at Birkenhead Technical College. He began working for a wealthy local family, catering for their dinner parties, and became a close family friend. He soon got a professional catering job, a summer at the Cavendish Hotel in Eastbourne and went on to manage a Fullers Tea Shop in Worthing. He was sent to an institution in Chester to receive aversion therapy when he came out to his mother at the age of 18. He left after one day after being exposed to people being "treated" using electrodes. A few days later, he recognised one of the psychiatrists from the institution in a gay bar. In 1993, after stories had emerged of others being treated this way in hospitals, he decided to go public with his story to encourage more people to come forward.


Pete Price Career

Radio career

He began as the cook on a cruise ship and later became a BBC Radio Merseyside disc jockey at the age of twenty-one. Price made his first appearance on the comedy scene at Liverpool's 'The Shakespeare', performing at various venues, including The Palladium and the QE2. He became a host on 194 Radio City's former station, and has remained so in its various iterations since. He continues to appear in pantomimes in Liverpool and Merseyside, as well as writing for national newspapers, including The Independent and The Times. He has been with national BBC Radio 1 and Radio City for more than 20 years, and he continues to host his late night talk show on Radio City Talk until March 2020. The show was also broadcast by sister station Greatest Hits Radio Liverpool.

The Lord Mayor of Liverpool made Price a 'Honorary Scouser' in April 2009.

Prices' new shows were first on Magic Radio before they attracted mass attention following controversies with callers on air. On Sun-Thurs nights, the show was broadcast on Radio City 96.7 and City Talk 105.9. This wasn't until July 2014 that City began to join the rest of the Bauer Media stations late night show with Kate Lawler.

On Radio City Talk, Price appeared live on a phone call. Dennis the Chemist and Pheobe, an alleged psychic and Angel Card reader, were among the guests. The programme was one of the most popular night-time talk show in the United Kingdom, with one show receiving 19,000 attempted calls from a single show this week.

Following the announcement of Radio City Talk's impending closure, it was also announced that Price will no longer be included in his weekly phone-in service in May 2020. Price responded by stating that the news had left him "devastated."

Pete was lauded for avoiding his midweek show on one occasion in February 2004 in order to help a 13-year-old caller who was trying to kill himself.

When a regular caller named "Terry" stopped responding live on air during a debate in January 6, Pete's show on sister station Magic 1548 made it to the front page in Liverpool. Pete continued to tour the man's house after Merseyside Police refused to investigate the man's safety. Pete was unfortunate enough to find an ambulance outside the house as he arrived. The man's house had already been entered and discovered that he had died as a result of a suspected heart attack. The Magic 1548 show was eventually removed from Magic 1548 and was relocated to Radio City 96.7's late night phone-in.

Also in September 2007, an extract from his autobiography was published in the Liverpool Echo, a drug use by Price, although he "handed himself in" to the police shortly after, showing fear.

The Liverpool Echo announced that Price had received a "homophobic" death threat by text live on air in October 2007. Following the receipt of the threatening letter, the sender was arrested immediately after. "On another occasion, a man attempted to break into Radio City's headquarters" because they were "convinced Price had attempted to murder John Lennon."

Pete continued to find his biological father in January 2008 by employing the network skills of an imprisoned Sicilian Mafia boss Bernardo Provenzano in the hopes that "The Don" will help him locate his father. His biological mother, who had lost touch with him, gave him a snapshot of his biological father: a Sicilian prisoner of war detained near Warrington. According to Pete, the Mafia "must have the world's best information network."

Many scuba divers and environmentally aware citizens of the public contacted Pete and Radio City 2 in December 2016 urging them not to cancel a mass balloon launch at midnight on December 22nd. The balloon race was off and on. Two leading diving journalists contacted Radio City 2's operator, Bauer Media Group, asking that the activity be suspended. Bauer Media has confirmed that no company within the company would do balloon release in the future.
