A veritable cavalcade of stars are set to take over Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show for two weeks in January. The line-up includes Lily Allen, Jimmy Carr, Damon Albarn, The Prodigy and Razorlight.
While Lowe takes a break from his show, which airs Monday to Thursday, 7.00-9.00pm, his guest presenters will hand-pick contemporary and classic tracks for their playlists. The full line-up is:
Monday 12 January – The Prodigy
Tuesday 13 January – Friendly Fires
Wednesday 14 January – Damon Albarn
Thursday 15 January – Biffy Clyro
Monday 19 January – Lily Allen
Tuesday 20 January – Razorlight
Wednesday 21 January – Wombats
Thursday 22 January – Jimmy Carr
Zane Lowe says: "I'm absolutely thrilled with the line-up. It's going to be a great listen and I know that wherever I am I will certainly be tuning in online and checking out the shows myself and maybe even calling in now and then."
