Radio is our home. 1BTN is our bedrock. And playing tunes with the DJ rota from the bunker is always our pleasure. And so it shall be this Bank Holiday Monday as we join the greatest collection of radio reprobates for a session of loved up record playing, in-depth groove appreciation (literally – have you seen some of the stylus back-up’s these DJs carry around?) and fundraising good times at Brighton’s Eddy.
The 1BTN All Dayer 12 Hour DJ line-up includes 6FT Stereo, Alex Cella, Alex Fowbey, Family Funktunes, Fred Lopez, Nick Carling, Playtime, Rockit Soul, Soul Casserole, The Isle Of CC, The Nitty Gritty, Tom Webb, What’s Wrong With Groovin? and a very special one-off back to back Club Barbra session with ourselves and Kerry Jean Lister! So join us for 12 hours of 1BTN DJs spinning literally anything from reggae, dub, rock, funk, soul, house, disco, techno, hip hop, Latin, afro and more.
Plus there will be food served all day courtesy of Dutch Pot, literally the best Jamaican BBQ around and a Pop Up Vinyl Market with new and used vinyl from all genres for sale. Just make sure you arrive early to grab those bargains and rarities. And we’ll be holding a raffle to help raise funds for the radio station. Prizes will include a roast for two plus wine at The Eddy, bottles of wine, Prosecco, a Queenie Strip Service cartoon commission, pies (yeah pies!!), music, vinyl goodies, Southern Belle treats and much, much more. Add plenty of drink promos throughout the day too and you have the perfect sunshine Sunday as we come together to raise the cash for Brighton’s number one not-for-profit radio station!

About 1BTN. 1BTN launched in April 2015 with the ambition to create a not-for-profit radio station that not only provides a mix of varied and eclectic musical genres to reflect the city’s creative culture, but also directly involves the community with the station itself. We currently have a roster of approximately 180 volunteer presenters broadcasting 120+ live shows per month. The presenters are made up of a mixture of Dj’s, musicians, artists, promoters, music enthusiasts, members of the community and local community groups and charitable organisations. Most, if not all of our presenters – past and present – have a strong local presence with many having national and international recognition.
We are also involved with a number of local charities and community groups with some of them hosting their own shows on 1BTN. We are always actively engaging other local concerns to join our project. To further the work we already do, we have plans of launching a second service in a working live studio. We will look to engage more community and charity groups to host shows and we will have relevant talk shows etc all for the purpose of serving the local community. Ultimately, we are an underground music station and it’s the love of music that drives the project forwards. We look to the likes of NTS, 6 Music, Worldwide in the UK and the likes of Berlin Community Radio and Redlight Radio further afield, as our inspiration and an influence on what we aim to be. 101.4FM DAB+ and online 1BTN.fm
