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 worldwide, 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.

Ways to listen

Selector Radio and Selector After the Dark shows are available every Friday via the Selector homepage on the British Council’s dedicated Music website or via Mixcloud at Selector Radio. Here you’ll also find an archive of Selector shows going back through the years so you’ll never miss a thing.
