Radio 1 surgery goes nightly

Radio 1's teen help show The Surgery is marking the start of the school holidays with a week-long series of shows every night – simulcast on both Radio 1 and digital station BBC Radio 1Xtra. The Summer Surgery hosted by Aled Haydn Jones kicked off with a show live from Newquay in Cornwall last night (Sunday).

All this week the Surgery's on between 9 and 10pm on both networks, with resident experts on hand to help listeners with issues that are important to them during the summer months.

As young people all over Britain are gearing up for their first festival experience, first trip abroad with friends, first summer job or just simply embarking on their first summer of discovery, The Summer Surgery will be there to help tackle the big decisions, questions and problems in young peoples' lives at this time of year – sex, drugs, alcohol, body image, jobs, money and travel.

Aled Haydn Jones – by day a producer on the Chris Moyles Show – says: "I'm really excited to be broadcasting The Surgery for five consecutive nights. The feedback from our listeners is that the summer is when they are experiencing things for the first time and The Surgery will be there to help them make informed choices."

Ben Cooper, Deputy Controller Radio 1 and Radio 1Xtra, adds: "The Surgery and our social action campaigns are an integral and very important part of our offering for younger listeners. With The Summer Surgery we hope to offer support and advice in a way that's both fun and practical."

Across the week, Radio 1 and Radio 1Xtra DJs will be getting involved and reflecting some of The Surgery themes in their shows including a specially themed music mix by Jaguar Skills.
