Debately the only man left regularly supporting new music on Radio 1 (apart from the recently, and wrongly, snubbed Steve Lamacq), Mister Rob Da Bank, has a new show.
He sent DiS an email which said this: "The new show's called, imaginatively, The Rob Da Bank show! Every Sunday on Radio 1 from midnight 'til 2am and covering all bases from the leftfield - techno, indie, reggae, dubstep, breakcore, hip hop etc... A Maida Vale session each week from the likes of Metric, Nina Nastasia, Man Like Me, Kids in Tracksuits or Blood on the Wall."
He continued typing and said Beirut were doing a session or something soon, too!
Listen back to the launch show, featuring an exclusive live set from Maida Vale from DiS Recordings' Metric and also Jeremy Warmsley reading pages from a book, online here: www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/robdabank/
