Radio 1 specials for Zane Lowe

If you like music by Nirvana, Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes and Led Zeppelin, then you'll love Zane Lowe's new four-part series on BBC Radio 1. Called 'Masterpieces', Zane will play four albums, in their entirety and without interruption, live on air over four nights.

Through the week, Zane explores his four "masterpiece" albums, their story and the influence they have had on other artists. The programmes feature interviews with band members, archive documentary material, and other artists talking about how the albums have changed their lives.

Each night culminates in the chosen album being played in full, track by track, with no interruptions: the way they were meant to be heard.

Zane Lowe says: "There's no denying that things move fast, time is precious and attention spans are short these days. That said, a classic album will make you stop and listen. It will jog your memory and spark your imagination. Whether you've never heard these four albums before or you've heard them a thousand times, we want you to stop and celebrate this music as a journey from beginning to end with no interruptions. With each of these masterpiece albums, we are giving you a perfect excuse to stop."

The four albums chosen are:

[b]Monday 5 November: [/b]Nevermind by Nirvana

[b]Tuesday 6 November: [/b]Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not by Arctic Monkeys

[b]Wednesday 7 November: [/b]Is This It? by The Strokes

[b]Thursday 8 November:[/b] Led Zeppelin IV by Led Zeppelin

Zane Lowe's Masterpieces, 5-8 November 2007, 7-9pm, on BBC Radio 1.
