Alex Pepper




Welcome to the Official Website of one of Yorkshire’s most celebrated DJ’s from the 90’s and 00’s, Red Hot Alex Pepper!

Famed for his infectious laugh, witty banter and thirst to bring Yorkshire the best new music out there, Alex was a household name and the one to listen to every weeknight on his award winning Galaxy 105 Radio Show.



His career has seen Alex take the spotlight of many FM Radio Shows, Internet Radio Shows, touring Yorkshire performing live in various Nightclubs and even Co-Produce a Remix to a Top 100 UK Chart Single in 2002.

After taking a break from the scene, Alex is back with a vengeance to take Yorkshire by storm once more. For more information on Alex and what he is doing now, please take a look at the relevant section of this site or visit his Official Facebook and Twitter feeds which are updated daily.




The Past

Alex began his DJ’ing career at the tender age of 14 doing mobile discos in 1989, he then went on to Radio after standing in for someone on a show for Wear FM in Sunderland.

Then on the 14th February 1997 Kiss 105 was born out of Leeds, West Yorkshire. Kiss 105 was a Dance Music station that was part of a new breed of regional radio stations and Alex became part of the team by presenting the Kiss Networked overnight show and then went on to do Drivetime.


Later that year Kiss was rebranded as Galaxy 105 and it was under this new brand that Alex was given the now legendary Alex Pepper Evening Show, and continued to dominate Yorkshire’s Airwaves until 2003.

He revolutionised evening radio with features such as “Fly or Die” where he would showcase the hottest new tracks. Listeners could phone in and chat to Alex then vote on air for their favourite of two featured tracks dubbed the “Champion” or the “Challenger”.

Each show was finished off by “In the Mix @ 9” where Alex would do a LIVE mix every night, often playing tunes people had only requested that evening – recordings of some of these mixes can be found on his Mixcloud.



A regular of the clubbing scene, Alex toured Yorkshire every weekend as he was a very popular booking to have. Many would remember him for his days at Majestic in Leeds, for “Alex in Wonderland” and “Alex vs FNP”. Alex also did summer tours in Ibiza and back in the UK with “Pepper on the Prom”.

After many happy years at Galaxy, Alex went on to present the drive time show for Radio Aire with Liz Whitaker often covering the breakfast show with her too. Alex also presented the Yorkshire edition of FloorFillers, which was broadcast on Radio Aire, Hallam FM and Viking FM simultaneously, and also saw Alex hosting a FloorFillers branded club night at Eden in Ibiza, which did the impossible, by outselling Judge Jules’ Judgement Sunday in its opening week! Shortly afterwards, Alex went on to present a show for Radio Frequency in Leeds, bringing us on to “The Bit Inbetween…”




The Time Inbetween

So, where has Alex been?

After his years at Galaxy ended, Alex took a brief stint at Radio Aire in Leeds and Frequency before thinking “There’s got to be more to life than Radio…”

Alex decided to take some time out from the biz to find himself again and after 10 years he realised that music WAS his life.

Although doing this out of the limelight of FM Radio, Alex began dabbling in online radio by running and presenting FloorFillers Radio, (formerly Lx^FM) where he had a live streamed show every Thursday evening.

Many even recall the chat room he had on his website (Lx^IRC) where friends and fans would join during his shows. Alex was also credited on the first release of the popular FloorFillers CD series.

Being the voice of Outside Trance, Alex has been hosting a weekly show since 2013, every Saturday at 4pm and Sunday at 8pm. He has also, since mid 2016, been hosting Inside Trance every third Saturday at 4pm on, the worlds most listened to Trance station, alongside longstanding friend and Internet Trance Guru, DJ Proxi.


And now, Alex is back, ready to be the voice of radio in Yorkshire once more. For more information check out his official Facebook Page or the Present section of this site.
