Dan And Phil

Sunday 13 January



YouTube sensations Dan and Phil take over the mantle of the Sunday night Radio 1 Request show with a brand new fully visualised show, interacting with listeners and playing the music they want. This brand new show along with the last hour of the charts will make Sunday evenings a fully visual experience on Radio 1 from 6-9pm with fans able to watch on the Radio 1 website.

Each week Dan and Phil will produce a special video and a selection of the request tracks will be driven by audience-generated videos.

Dan and Phil have been amazing audiences online with their amusing videos for some time, which has seen them clock up an incredible 100 million views and almost one million subscribers to their respective YouTube Channels - Danisnotonfire and AmazingPhil. They have previously presented shows for Radio 1 including a Christmas special featuring a mixture of music and visual joy.

Dan and Phil said: “We are extremely excited to start this new show! We think it's really changing the idea of a request show and bringing it into the internet generation. It's going to be an explosive two hours of great music, lols and interactive content that's completely visualised on the Radio 1 website and we want it to stand out as one of the highlights of the week!”
