The station will feature Noel Edmonds, John Peel, Kenny Everett, Alan Freeman, Mike Read, Zoe Ball, Chris Moyles and many more between 30th September and 2nd October 2017.

There will also be programmes about classic shows including Radio 1 Roadshows, Radio 1’s Live Lounge, Radio 1’s Official Chart, Newsbeat, 1990s Comedy Shows, They Started At Radio 1, and Epic Documentary Series.

Ben Cooper, Controller BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra & Asian Network, says: 
“Radio 1 is the soundtrack to young people’s lives in the UK and has been for the last 50 years, so it's going to be a lot of fun reliving that pop culture and great music.”

Radio 1 Vintage will be available live on DAB Digital Radio, online and via BBC iPlayer Radio and UK Radio Player.
