Grimes interview!

2 hours
First broadcast:
Saturday 05 May 2012

Grimes is in the building for an interview, sharing some of the musical secrets of her hometown Montreal ahead of her UK live dates.

Rob gets a little dusty as he digs deep into John Peel's record collection for a special archive session. Celebrating the launch of new website The Space - an online spot dedicated to John Peel's world famous record collection - each week Rob will be going through the alphabet to select some of the finest John Peel sessions for your listening pleasure. Starting with the letter A, and giving a nod to our rather wet weather, this week Rob has selected Ann Peeble's legendary I Can't Stand The Rain.

Plus Rob reports on all the weird and wonderful goings-on in the world of music in The 6:22 News; and the usual two hours of eclectic music from the UK and beyond with Radio 1's resident ponytail: Rob da Bank!
