#Radio1Vintage hits the air
The BBC's pop-up station celebrating 50 years of BBC Radio 1 has hit the air
The BBC have launched their short-lived, pop-up station for BBC Radio 1's 50th birthday. It's on DAB, the BBC iPlayer for Radio, and Radioplayer. Overseas listeners can use the BBC iPlayer for Radio, which is free to download, or listen here.
So far, Tony Blackburn's show, which I gather is also being simulcast on BBC Radio 2, is a strange old experience. A bit over-indulgent on the jingles, but a good listen nonetheless.
It's a good idea doing a pop-up station for old people like me who like remembering Radio 1 as it was, without bothering the young people of today with the whole idea. I'm not sure how much I'll enjoy listening to it all, but it's fun.
Over here, by the way, some great clips from BBC Radio 1 Vintage at this year's Next Radio conference.
Have you been listening? What do you think?
For me the hour dedicated to Kenny Everett was the most enjoyable.
The Radio 1 Roadshow was dreadful, Smashie-and-Nicey, stuff. Golly.
