BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra are holding a "Big Gaming Weekend"

BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra are holding a



As an American my knowledge of the British Broadcasting Company is limited to what Jim Sterling has told me, Monty Python and the song at the end of Austin Powers. The BBC does radio as well as television it turns out and that radio station, the BBC Radio 1, will be jam packed full of awesome come May 22-25 as they are hosting their Big Gaming Weekend.

For that weekend BBC Radio 1 and Xtra1, which I'm sure the UK readers of the site know, will be playing gaming music on the radio, presenting reviews and featuring gaming leaderboards between Radio 1's superstar DJs. The main event though is the listener chosen top three games of all time. The radio station has had the top 100 games of all time picked out by a group of gaming industry experts and will be presenting them for the general public's voting on May 22. The results will be given on the 25th. If you don't live in the UK, but think this sounds like a great way to spend Memorial Day weekend never fear, BBC Radio 1 is streaming.
