It’s in the name. Selector picks out the best new UK music each week, and shares it with four million listeners around the world. Join us for great music and stories from the people who make it.

Shared with more than 30 countries around the world, Selector connects a global audience to the ever-changing sounds of UK culture. The show shines a light on scenes, festivals, towns and cities up and down the UK, to bring you anything and everything that’s exciting right now. We take you on a virtual tour of the UK, dropping you into the heart of cities like Bristol, Belfast, Cardiff and Glasgow to listen to the best emerging talent. 

Jazz, grime, indie or electronica – or somewhere in between – each week we put together a truly eclectic playlist and catch up with the artists and labels who are leading the way in UK music.

In Ireland you can listen to Selector every Tuesday at 2 pm on RTE 2XM.

Our presenter – Jamz Supernova

Jamz’ own club residency of the same name has become the go-to spot in London and Bristol, featuring the cream of under-the-radar talent alongside underground heavyweights including Brasstracks, UNiiQU3, Swindle, Jarreau Vandal, JD Reid, Branko and Joe Hertz.

A keen agent for change, Jamz created DIY Generation – a spotlight on amazing young people building and owning their own careers, highlighting women and people of colour.
