Hi – Mike Wyldbore here, Peterborough born and bred back in the 50’s, but now very local having lived in Whittlesey for over 30 years.
Musically I started as Mike Wylde, DJ in 1970, and after meeting John Minns of Anglo Norwegian Entertainments, my life turned around going from small parties to nightclubs, including the Stilton Country Club and one of Peterborough’s first night clubs – The Flamingo Club – now under Queensgate!
Progression from there was to the hotel and club circuit around the area – weddings, parties, private functions and compere work, having moved over to the Steve Allen Agency after the tragic loss of John Minns.
I moved to Whittlesey in 1987 since which time I have been involved with the Whittlesey Arts Group and for the last 20 years the Whittlesey Pub Quiz League as Organiser and Quizmaster.
Many local people will know me as the “washing machine man” having owned and operated MWS Electrical for the past 20 plus years.
I hope to bring to my show a wide-ranging mix of music, an involvement in local events and interests, obviously I have to involve a Quiz, listener participation for music requests, what’s happening and some gossip – please!
