Friday Night Residency

Friday Night Residency

BBC Asian Network (Most listened to Asian Radio Station in the UK, broadcasting on Radio, Online & On-Demand - has recently launched a new show called the Friday Night Residency.

The show aims to enhance the station's focus on younger audiences by building in DJ guest mixes.

I'd like to invite your DJ's to do a DJ guest Mix consisting of a mixture of their sounds incorporated with Asian Beats.

Duration of the mix will need to be approx. 30 mins. Below is a brief for the Mix.

It's a Hype show with Friday anthems!!! Could you put together something unique and distinct with the challenge?

The mix once agreed will also be available to listen to on BBC iPlayer and the BBC website. So even after broadcast it will have more opportunity to be shared and listened across our social media too. 

We launched the show a couple of weeks ago and had positive vibes from the industry/audience: Please find a link to some of the names/mixes we've had:


Its the hottest cuts and bangers all twisted and mashed up together to get you amped up for your Friday night.
