Pete Waterman

Biography

If you are over 40 then you will remember the Dansette record player with its auto changer which allowed you to play ten singles at a time. It was this, or in fact the mutilation of the auto-changer that changed an industry and set one man on a remarkable career. This simple act of vandalism enabled Pete to keep records playing at parties without too long a break between each record. The year was 1958 and although now it is hard to conceive that anything so basic was revolutionary, history shows that's what it was. Up until the late 50's playing records was not classed as any form of entertainment.
