Radio One roadshow rocks Weston’s sands today (Thursday) with a line-up of top musical talent broadcasting live to the nation.
Indie chart-toppers James (lead singer Tim Booth pictured above), singer Karen Ramirez and success-hungry newcomers Ultra are all booked to appear, with station stalwart DJ Simon Mayo presenting the package. Thousands are expected to pack the beach for the event, which is always one of the best attended roadshows in the country. The whole affair goes on air from 11.30am but DJ Chris Hopkins treats the early-birds to tunes from 10.30am, with things winding up at around 12.30pm.
The 1998 roadshows started in Blackpool on Monday, August 3, and end in Bangor, Northern Ireland on Bank Holiday Monday.
Roadshow manager Richard Greeves said: “We are getting really good crowds. They’re bigger than ever this year.”
