This is the only place on the planet that you can get as much new music by artists from the UK and around the world.
We don't represent any single genre of popular music - we represent them all. If it's good then we broadcast it. And there are no adverts.
Our DJs are known worldwide for their personalities and their knowledge of music and entertainment. Their shows are packed with music, guests, comedy, interviews, features, competitions and information on every aspect of popular culture.
We love live. We're the biggest promoter of live music for broadcast in the UK. We bring you more gigs, more festivals, and loads of exclusive performances from our Maida Vale studios and world famous Live Lounge.
Our News and Sport are ahead of the game and we make cutting edge documentaries on music and life. We target what we do at young adults - we even offer help and advice.
We're here for anyone who enjoys great music, and wants to discover more. We make listening easy, on FM, on digital and online - listen live, on demand or on the move.
We can do all this because Radio 1 is part of the BBC, the UK's public service broadcasting organisation. We're impartial and independent. The only things that influence us are quality, accuracy and the interests of our audience.
That's what makes us the world's greatest radio station.
