Peter Powell is Radio 1's newest weekday dee-jay, with a time-slot that means he has the crossover audience of housewives, kids home from school, students who've finished the day's lectures and people on their way home from work. With this wide-ranging audience, there's something for everyone in Peter's show.
'Mind you," he says, 'apart from the regular spots like That Drivin' Beat, we do like to keep things as unpredictable as possible and surprise the listeners with a special guest now and then. Musically, with the entire BBC Record Library at our disposal, I can include Rock 'n' Roll, Rockabilly, disco and dance music, plus the singles and album charts, and quite a few new album tracks that people might like to hear.' including at 5.30 Newsbeat with Peter Mayne

Adrian Love chairs Radio l's open discussion - an opportunity for schools and clubs to choose a subject, provide a panel and pick the programme's music. Add a couple of invited ' experts ' and some abrasive comments by the chairman, and the result is an hour's uninhibited argument.
