The Selector is our international radio showcase for the best new music from the UK. The weekly programme covers all styles of contemporary music - you’ll hear indie, grime, dubstep, folk, soul, electro and everything else in between. Each show also features artist interviews and exclusive studio sessions from some of the most exciting artists in the UK.
The show reflects the brilliance and diversity of British music, promoting the sounds, talents and musical culture of modern Britain to an international audience. The aim is to challenge people’s perceptions about the UK and showcase the wealth of creativity and innovation on offer here.
The Selector is a collaborative project by the British Council, the production company Folded Wing and the radio stations around the world that broadcast the show. The idea was originally conceived in the UK by the British Council's Music team in 2001 and since then the show has been broadcast in over 30 countries and built up a loyal audience worldwide. The Selector has won awards including Radio Progamme of the Year in Hungary and the prestigious Gold award for Best Weekly Music Programme at Sony Radio Academy Awards.
Each week's show is available on The Selector's website - www.selector-radio.com - together with podcasts, videos and an archive of classic sessions. As of November 2010 the show is also broadcast on digital radio via NME Radio - www.nme.com/radio.
