The All Request Party

We're having a royal weekend of music on BFBS Radio to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee - with four days of great tunes and all the gossip thrown in for good measure!

To help, we want your best anthems for our 'All Request Party' which is happening across the weekend. So... what song do you want us to play?

Skip to win an iPad

How do you fancy winning a brand new iPad, just by skipping?

We want you to film yourself or someone else (consensually, of course) doing as many skips at once without stopping, then send that video to us!

Sound simple?
