Hey Hi Hello is a greeting we have all become familiar with, as Annie Nightingale cues up another show on BBC Radio 1. As a DJ and broadcaster on radio, TV and the live music scene, she has been an invigorating and necessarily disruptive force, working within the establishment but never playing by the rules. She walked in the door at Radio 1 as a rebel, its first female broadcaster, in 1970. Fifty years later she became the station’s first CBE in the New Year’s Honours List; still a vital force in British music, a DJ and tastemaker who commands the respect of artists, listeners and peers across the world.

Always in tune with the nation’s taste, yet effortlessly one step ahead for more than five decades, she digs deep into her crate of memories, experiences and encounters to deliver an account of a life lived on the frontiers of pop cultural innovation. She tells the story of those early, intimidating days at Radio 1, the Ground Zero moment of punk and the epiphanies that arrived in the late 80s with the arrival of acid house and the Second Summer of Love, and talks about encounters with Bob Marley, Marc Bolan, The Beatles, Little Simz and Billie Eilish. She is in conversation with Jenny Lacey.

Hey Hi Hello: Five Decades of Pop Culture from Britain’s First Female DJ is published by White Rabbit. Buy a copy from our bookseller partners Waterstones.
