Specialist DJ Takeover on Radio1 This Week

By on Monday, 3rd January 2011 at 12:00 pm

Radio1 is making an unusual move for the first week of 2011, in the form of four of their most famous and popular presenters taking over their airwaves from 7 AM to 7 PM every day this week. Turning the Radio1 schedule completely on its head, Zane Lowe will present in the breakfast show from 7 to 10 AM instead of his usual evening timeslot. Electronic music specialist Annie Mac will be in charge 10 AM to 1 PM. Indie band champion Huw Stephens (pictured above) will preside over the afternoon 1 to 4 PM slot. And Nick Grimshaw will be at the mixing desk at 4 to 7 PM, a couple hours earlier than his normal late night specialist show weeknights Monday through Thursday.

This unique “specialist DJ takeover” week will give these four DJs the latitude to look back at the bands they championed in 2010 while bringing attention to the acts they think will be big in 2011. A special feature to Zane Lowe’s breakfast show is the announcement of the top 5 acts of the BBC Sound of 2011, one each day, until the #1 act is crowned on Friday, the 7th of January 2011. For more info on the artists on the BBC Sound of 2011 longlist and a comparison with TGTF’s own 10 for 2011 and the MTV Brand New for 2011 list, go here.
