Radio 1 Stars Return To Bedfordshire

During the w/c 13th June 2022, Radio LaB and the University of Bedfordshire were pleased to welcome BBC Radio 1’s Rickie, Melvin & Charlie to Luton – where they were broadcasting live from their portable studio.

University of Bedfordshire alumni Melvin Odoom and Rickie Haywood-Williams returned to their old stomping ground to broadcast their Radio 1 show live from the Luton campus.

The pair – who met while hosting student radio shows together at the University – brought along co-host Charlie Hedges for a fun-filled week of games, dares and non-stop chat!

Everyone involved from Radio 1 was incredibly generous with their time, giving our students some fantastic insight into what it was like to work for the iconic national BBC radio station.

The stars also found time to speak to Radio LaB’s Nathan and Toby live in the studio – hear their interview here:
