How does Radio 1 decide which songs to get behind? Nadia Khomami is granted a rare pass into its playlist committee meeting and finds it’s as much about YouTube hits as good tunes
After our experience curating an entire bank holiday’s worth of music, with the feedback and overwhelming positivity that followed, and in particular comments which responded to the choice of genres and quantity of obscure and under-the-radar music included, we found this article published the next day very relevant and insightful.
OK, that’s it from us.
Leaving you in the gentle hands of DJ Coppice, who started us off on Friday evening with this lovely organic set. Stay around to hear it!
Thanks and summaries and realisations will have to come tomorrow - as we approach 78 hours of continuous broadcasting, we’re a little bit tired, a little bit emotional and delirious. But it’s been Real.
“Build and Destroy keeping things mellow, dubbing the hell out of the airwaves!
Thanks to Stan Chow for the previous 2 hours, Inspirational! I feel like I learnt a lot during that set and heard loads of new tunes and well decent variations.
Thank you Stan.”—
'Apparently on 89.6 in the midlands although I can't get the FM where I am. Something a little different, makes a change to the usual selection of bashment, bassline and shit jump up D&B on the pirates round here'
“Quoth Mole of Perry + Mole: “I have a mouth ulcer the size of a 12” record, my hair looks like a nest that was built by a bird who hasn’t been to Specsavers, I could really use a shower and I’ve had 9 hours sleep in 79 hours.
But I feel GREAT - non-stop music for three days. Awesome. BRING MORE.”—
Well, I think the Wizz/Dynodaze combo worked very, very well! Thanks to Wizz for picking up Rich and Danny’s playlists and making it all work so smoothly!
Now we have Mole on bringing the tunes right up to date, but with that smooth 80s influence!

“Dynodaze Ltd have provided the tunes for Altar Ego for the next 2 hours, right now it’s Mole knocking out some 80s classics on behalf of Danny!
Wizz will be jumping on the wheels of steel soon to bring more classics, but for now, rock the fk out!!”—Danny Dynodaze
“We’ve had feedback that the FM signal is reaching Worcester loud and clear, if you’re picking it up even remotely close to that area, please let us know where, it helps us for next time!
Also please feel free to tell your friends that we’re on, broadcasting on 89.6, spread the love!”—
