Crissy Criss’ Last Show on BBC Radio 1Xtra

Posted by Bailey Intabeats  •  Filed under Pictures

I headed to BBC Broadcasting House in Central London to show support for Crissy Criss on his last show after 10 years of presenting on 1Xtra. In a way I felt I owed it to him. When I left 1Xtra almost two years before, Crissy remained supportive of what I do calling out on air how much he missed his former radio partner in crime and even inviting me to do a guest mix on his show a just few months after I’d left. Quite a noble thing as normal practice for most presenters would’ve been not to mention anyone who had left, treating their names like a dirty word. Naturally, plenty of faces from the Drum & Bass fraternity felt the same about Crissy’s devotion and showed up to wish him well for the future.  You could hear the emotion in his voice as he gave his final and long list of out shout outs at the end and why not. Ten years of baring your musical soul to the public is no small thing.

The question everyone is asking now is “What’s he gonna do now?”. Well.., it’s a fair question but also a dumb one. Crissy was a DJ before 1Xtra and will always be after. Leaving the BBC doesn’t meant that all of a sudden stops. Having asked him myself, he told me he wants to spend more time in the studio producing music, so expect to see plenty of new material from Crissy in your stores soon.

On behalf of the fans who have listened to Crissy Criss on 1Xtra for the last decade, thank you Crissy. You more than did your duty for Drum & Bass, the music we love so much. We look forward to what you have in store for us in the near future.

Below are some pictures I took during the final show.
