Radio 1 are doing a Vintage long weekend to celebrate 50 years of broadcasting. Today’s the last day, but it’s not, as I thought, taking over normal Radio 1 (I wonder how that would have gone down), but a digital pop-up station. It’s all hour long segments of a little interview with an old presenter and then archive clips and songs. I’ve got the Simon Mayo one on at the moment. It’s weird to remember that he was there til 2001. He just had a live performance from Destiny’s Child. In my memory they’re years apart.
Here’s the full schedule. Fun looking at names I don’t recognise and trying to work out if they’re before or after my time.
It’s a bit hard to find from the iPlayer Radio homepage, so here’s the station page. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p059cwkn
