Peter Tibbles contributes the weekly Elder Music column to Time Goes By which appears each Sunday. His knowledge of just about every genre of music is formidable. It has been gained, he says, by sitting at home listening to music. “That's it, really,” writes Peter. “I read a lot and drink wine as well. Oh, I cook a bit so I'll have something to go with the wine."
In the 1980s and early 1990s, he was a part-time deejay on a community radio station for ten years. He was originally asked to do a Fifties rock 'n' roll and country music program. Later, he did a RandB/soul show, a “general-what-he-wanted program," also filling in for the blues, jazz and classical shows whenever those presenters were unavailable.
Peter, who worked in the IT industry, is now retired and lives in Melbourne, Australia.
