Annie Nightingale's Request Show on BBC Radio 1 is making a come back – but for one night only. Annie will host the special edition on September 30th, to mark the stations 40th anniversary. The show originally ran from 1982 till 1994 and was quite a big hit with listeners.
Annie told BBC.co.uk: "From week one the requests came in by the sack load," said the 65-year-old. Throughout the years, listeners used a variety of props to get their demands noticed – with requests submitted on a house brick, a paper prayer mat and the rubber end of a shower attachment.
"For me, getting so much mail – so many hilarious, poignant, witty, daring communications – was like Christmas every week, I read every single one and I loved doing that."
Annie is still part of the schedule, currently presenting a late night dance show on the station.
