There is a big changes to the dance music line up over at Radio 1. The biggest news for me is that our beloved Gilles Peterson is leaving Radio 1, but according to him he is in talks with Radio 6 Music for hopefully a new show on that radio station.
The other big news is that Skream and Benga are getting their own show on Fridays between 11pm and 1am, and Toddla T is also getting a massive show after Skream and Benga. In addition Friction will replace Fabio and Grooverider in the drum & bass show. We will also get new DJs for the In New DJs We Trust show and a new show called BBC Radio 1 Residency with Heidi, Chuckie and Kutski as DJs.
The people leaving are Judge Jules, Gilles Peterson, Kissy Sell Out, Fabio & Grooverider, while Charlie Sloth moves from 1Xtra to Radio 1.
