  Radio 1 shakes up evening shows
Updated 21 May 2004, 17.02
Zane Lowe
Rock and urban music fans will be able to tune into shows which used to go out way after bedtime thanks to a shake-up of Radio 1's evening shows.

From July, Mike Davies' punk metal slot The Lock Up will now take place at 9pm on Tuesdays instead of 2am.

Wednesday's Bobby & Nihal Asian Beats show will start at 9pm instead of 3am.

The biggest winner in the shake-up is Zane Lowe, who gains an extra hour and will broadcast from Monday to Thursday instead of Wednesday to Thursday.

The shake-up means Dave Pearce loses his two-hour drivetime slot.

He will continue to present his Sunday Dance Anthems, plus special dance music shows throughout the year.

Lowe said: "I am going to become a music missionary for all those listeners who may not know how much exciting new music they are missing out on."

A Radio 1 spokesman said the new schedule aimed to reflect "everything that was new and important musically around the world today".
