BBC Radio 1 (often known as Radio 1) is an international radio station that is based in the United Kingdom. It is owned by BBC and BBC Radio. Radio 1 started broadcasting at 7.00 am on September 30, 1967. Tony Blackburn presented the first programme on the station.
Radio 1 mainly plays popular music throughout the day, and often plays alternative music genres after 7 pm. This includes electronic dance, rock or just interviews. The station is meant to be listened to mainly by people aged 15–29.
Radio 1 was launched in 1967 due to the popularity of pirate radio stations such as Radio Caroline, which had been outlawed by Act of Parliament. Radio 1 was the first legal radio station in Britain.
Radio 1 also has a sister station, BBC Radio 1Xtra.
