BBC Three Counties Radio and BBC Radio Northampton will give local DJs a chance to get their music heard live on-air and BBC Sounds.
The ’15-minute mixtape’, which goes out on Sunday nights at 21:45, will give DJs from Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire the opportunity to share their favourite Soul, Jazz, R&B, House, Hip-Hop, Reggae and Drum & Bass tracks of all time.
BBC’s Edward Adoo came up with the idea says: The 15-minute mixtape will provide a weekly platform to local DJs, from the unknown to undiscovered, who hardly get any recognition for their great work. It will give DJs a chance to get their mixes aired to a wider audience by sharing their favourite Black Music tracks of all time.”
Laura Moss, executive editor of BBC Three Counties Radio, added: “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to champion local DJs from across Beds, Herts, Bucks and Northants. This area is full of amazing talent and there’s nothing better than being able to celebrate that, giving DJs an even bigger platform to reach out to more people and share great tracks in the mix.”
