Happy birthday Maida Vale

The BBC radio networks are to celebrate the 75th anniversary of its famous Maida Vale Studios.

The corporation is planning a day of special radio concerts and broadcasts from the venue on October 30th, when all of the BBC's radio networks will broadcast programmes from the building.

The day will include live music on BBC Radio 2, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa performing with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, a Live Lounge from Snow Patrol on BBC Radio 1, alongside 75 classic Maida Vale session songs on the station throughout the day.

There’ll also be a special edition of BBC Radio 4's Front Row, a performance from the BBC Symphony Orchestra on BBC Radio 3; and sets from BBC 6 Music's Craig Charles and BBC 1Xtra's Max.

Tim Davie, Director BBC Audio and Music, said: "Maida Vale has played a unique role in British music and arts for 75 years. The thousands of people who have passed through its doors have created some of BBC Radio's most memorable moments.

“Our celebrations promise to offer listeners some exceptional live performances which are a fitting tribute to this legendary venue."
