Male Radio 1 presenters are getting the weekend off this weekend as the station extends its International Women’s Day celebration by having women on-air for 39 hours non-stop.

The station today announced that in addition to the two 12-hour all-female evening line-ups from 7pm to 7am on Friday 7 and Saturday 8 March, Radio 1 will also host an all-female daytime line-up on International Women’s Day (Saturday 8 March).
