Annie Nightingale: 50 Years in Music

Nick Grimshaw and Annie Nightingale sit down at the top of the BT Tower in London to recount ten of Annie's most daring, adventurous and memorable career moments.

Nick Grimshaw and Annie Nightingale sit down at the top of the BT Tower in London to recount ten of Annie's most daring, adventurous and brilliant career moments. From being an early supporter of Daft Punk, to capturing possibly the first rave in Chile on film, Annie celebrates 50 years of working in music.

Hear Professor Green tell the story of Glastonbury 2010 and how important Annie's support has been to his career. Listen in as Annie tells Nick how Kate Moss used to phone in to Annie's request show, plus catch tales from the birth of acid house and of grime music.

Flosstradamus and TroyBoi bring us all the way up to 2015, explaining how our resident Trap Queen continues to support cutting edge, underground music every week on Radio 1 & 1Xtra.
