BBC Radio 1 & 1xtra have just announced the revamp of their schedule, which is due to come into play in September this year. The changes will be more impactful than others, as Radio 1 usually do a pretty good job in reaching out to an audience that take a taste in supporting less mainstream music. The changes comes with some bad news for Drum & Bass lovers, as one of the shows to be ‘axed’ is Crissy Criss’ show on Radio 1 & 1xtra.

Come September the weekly radio show will be axed entirely, which came as a surprise for DJs and producers in the scene. The Wednesday night show is well known for displaying new and old Drum & Bass music, and guest mixes. For fans, the announcement will come as a shock, and will most certainly effect the Drum & Bass scene as whole.

The fact that Drum & Bass music is played on a mainstream radio stations is a statement in itself, yet the presence of the genre on Radio 1 didn’t seem to meet expectations. The only Drum & Bass show left is Friction’s show played on Sunday mornings between 2am – 4am. Could we see his show being axed as well?

Was this a good decision for Radio 1, or has the Drum & Bass scene lost it’s fan base over the years? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below.
