Apple Music’s worldwide radio station, Beats 1, is launching two new shows and an all-new schedule – starting today.
The new shows and schedule will see more music and commentary being broadcast from the radio station which can be streamed live or on demand from Apple Music.
Two new shows are launching on Beats 1 from January 8th, 2018 including:
Former NME new bands editor, Matt Wilkinson, will be launching a brand new show. Broadcast from Beats 1’s new London studios, his show will span five days, Monday to Friday 10pm-Midnight AEDT. To celebrate the launch, Wilkinson will be joined by Guest Host Mike D of Beastie Boys the following week of January 15th.
Zane Lowe, Beats 1 Creative Director describes Matt Wilkinson as “natural on-air talent with great music knowledge.” While Matt has gone on to say “I love doing this show and I’m really looking forward to doing it every day… there’s way too much great music to get through once a week so this should make it easier.”
Also out of the UK, Julie Adenuga’s show expands to five days a week. Interestingly, a Saturday show will be dedicated to spotlighting new music, which usually releases most Fridays.
“I’m excited to be broadcasting earlier in the day from Beats 1 London and have an extra show each week to share new music with you. There are so many talented artists to support!” – Julie Adenuga
She will broadcast every Tuesday to Saturday from 1am to 3am AEDT.

Apple Music playlist curator, Carl Chery, will also host a new show called #OnRepeat Live with Carl Chery every Tuesday to Thursday from 3pm-4pm, AEDT.
The new Beats 1 schedule including days and times you can stream live in Australia are as follows:
