Janice Long became a national broadcaster when she joined BBC Radio 1 in 1983. Janice was the first woman to have her own daily show on Radio 1. Summed up recently, The Radio Times quoted “This woman made a seamless segue from Radio 1 to Top of the Pops to a late-night slot on Radio 2 without any dampening of her passionate fire for music, old and new. Her knowledge of music is encyclopaedic; audience engagement remains her motivation. And, lest we forget, Janice championed Primal Scream and was the DJ who gave Amy Winehouse her first radio session.
Janice now hosts the popular 7pm weeknight slot on BBC Radio Wales, championing the best new music from Wales and beyond.”
