A STUDENT from Hollywood near Redditch is to host a radio show on BBC Radio 1 and it’s provisionally due to go out on air tonight (Monday, July 18) at 9pm.
Ollie McGrath a student at De Montfort University has been chosen to host a playlist show reflecting students lives on the station.
Ollie, aged 20 who is currently studying Bsc in Media Production at at the Leicester university is also working as head of programming at his student radio station DemonFM.
“Recording the show was really good fun,” said Ollie.
“Having the chance to work with BBC Radio 1’s producers was quite daunting but also an honour. I can’t wait for people to hear the show now!
“Although the show is predominantly focused on the music and our theme (This One Time On My Gap Yah), I hope I managed to be a little funny, with an added tinge of sarcasm and to get my personality across.
“This has been a massive opportunity for me but also DemonFM.”
