Why is it that everything becomes increasingly awesome here when we’re about to leave?!
Radio 1 and 1Xtra have great perks: last week Hamza and I took a little intern outting to DJ Targets ‘Pitch Up’ event in Dalston. We got our drink on and met some cool people and saw the likes of M.O, G Frsh and Mikill Pane (and his rad socks).
I’ve learnt the hard way that most music industry people don’t like to dance at these kind of events, so when I was getting my twerk on (Ore style), I tragically, was the only one…
I feel this photo relays the tone of the night well. Especially the gun fingers.
This week I went to see Childish Gambino at the Brixton Academy with some of the 1Xtra music team which was AMAZING!!! He’s such a dude. I’mma start a fan club..
Yesterday we presented our projects to Ben Cooper which was scary/exhilarating/surprisingly fun. Not many people get to spend 15 minutes talking to the big boss himself and so it was a real honour to be given the opportunity to do so! He was smiling and nodding his head to my words, so I hope that means he liked it!
Next week, we are being scattered to different parts of the BBC for our wildcards. I’ll be working with BBC Radio Comedy which should be hilarious! (See what I did there?)
It’s going to be an emotional goodbye when we leave here next week
sobs, but I know that each of us will do everything in our power to pry our way back into the BBC. This ain’t the end!
