Yesterday, DemonFM had the privilege of hosting a segment on the BBC Radio 1 student playlist feature. As one of just 12 student radio stations across the UK to have won the chance, DemonFM members were excited to have the recognition they feel the station deserved.
The playlist, put together by members of Demon Media and DemonFM, is based around the theme of a student gap year and appropriately titled ‘This One Time On My Gap Yah’.
The playlists submitted to Radio 1 were shortlisted by the station’s Head of Programming, Rhys Hughes, and a team of Radio 1 Editors.
Oliver McGrath, who hosted the show, commented saying ‘Recording the show was really good fun! Having the chance to work with BBC Radio 1’s Producers was quite daunting but also an honour. I can’t wait for people to hear the show now!’
Luke Smith, graduate and former Head of Programming on DemonFM said, ‘Just a few weeks ago, the thought of DemonFM being in charge of the playlist for a Radio 1 show would have been utterly bonkers! I couldn’t be more proud of the station right now or more thankful to all of those who contributed to getting our playlists together.’
