Pete Mitchell does breakfast on Real XS

Radio 2 and Absolute Radio presenter Pete Mitchell is covering Mike Sweeney on Real Radio XS in Manchester this week.

And he would have got away with it if it wasn’t for those meddling kids at Radiofail, who have uploaded a recording mid-week of the Manchester-born jock getting the station name wrong.

Pete opens a link with “Good morning this is Pete Mitchell, this is Absolute Real Radio XS… to which, after a short laugh, his producer can be heard in the background suggesting to move on.

Programme Controller for Real XS, Mark Matthews told RadioToday exclusively: “While one Manchester radio legend Mike Sweeney takes his summer holiday, (to build a shed….honest), another icon of the city’s radio scene, Pete Mitchell is filling in.

“Former colleagues at Piccadilly Radio, Sweeney and Mitchell have over half a century under their belts, entertaining the good folk of Greater Manchester and their combined music knowledge is unparalleled. Denton born-and-bred, Pete Mitchell has been a regular presenter on stations including Radio 2 and is now returning to his Manchester roots to play classic rock on Real XS for two weeks.”

Pete, who spent the 1990s broadcasting to the city on Key 103, is on today and for another week in Manchester.
