It was a sad day for fans enamoured with boundary pushing British radio shows yesterday, as Mary Anne Hobbs broadcast her last show on the BBC’s flagship Radio 1 station. Hobbs has been responsible for bringing a vast array of dance-oriented music to a wider audience over the past 14 years, and has often brought an electric array of stars into her studio to perform exclusive mixes for the show.
Those mixes have often changed hands online, and last night’s show will be no different. Gorilla vs Bear is already pointing the way to a link to last night's mix, and this alternative link will take you to a final stream of Hobbs’ entire show, which featured an exclusive set by reclusive dubstep star Burial and his label boss, Kode9. Hobbs has been championing dubstep solidly over the past couple of years, so this makes a natural choice for her last show.
