Grimes interview!

Grimes is in for an interview and Rob repeats a special John Peel archive session track to celebrate the launch of the incredible online museum of John's record collection, The Space.

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!
