Listen to "All Gone Pete Tong" every week day at 7 p.m. ET on Evolution

Legendary radio host and Evolution Radio's own Pete Tong was honored for his contribution to broadcasting, and for his music career at Buckingham Palace earlier this week.

The dance music luminary was appointed as a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) at a ceremony by Prince William himself!

Pete says in a statement, "There are so many worthy people here today, I feel quite humbled by all the servicemen, policemen and the charity workers and people like that. So I count myself lucky to be recognized in this way."

A very big congratulations to Pete!
