BBC Radio 1 (commonly referred to as Radio 1) is a British international radio station operated by the BBC, specialising in current popular music throughout the day, with a slight bias to Rock & Indie music. Radio 1 provides alternative genres after 7 pm including electronic dance, Hip Hop, rock or interviews. It is aimed primarily at the 15-29 age group. Radio 1 was launched at 7.00 am on 30 September 1967 as a direct response to the popularity of offshore pirate radio stations such as Radio Caroline, which had been outlawed by Act of Parliament.
