About Mr Pete
A music aficionado, Mr. Pete’s mind and ears have no horizons. He has the uncanny ability to suss out the right song for the right time — a skill that is truly amazing. His lifelong passion for music began with his father’s influence and was kindled during his developmental years. Mr Pete built an extensive collection of record albums —diligently organized and catalogued— by the time he was a junior in high school. His mixed tape skills, honed in college during his stint as music director, have been in continuous use over the years while curating holiday CDs as gifts for friends. Jedemi welcomes his contributions.
