The roots of Panjabi culture are also demonstrated through our playing of traditional Panjabi folk music and Bhangra. Bhangra is the most recognised form of Panjabi music and since the 1980s has increased in popularity amongst all age groups and cultures to the extent that it has crossed over into mainstream music. Interviews with both the biggest Bhangra artists and emerging talent feature on a regular basis, Gippy Grewal, Ammy Virk, Pr33t Music and Nobby Singh to name a few. The Panjab Radio news service offers both UK national news hourly as well as international news, which is broadcast in Panjabi. Alongside this, there are daily shows based on lifestyle topics – such as health, cooking, fashion and family values – which give the station a modern edge to work alongside the traditional nature of the Gurbani Programmes, as well as a highly informative weekly immigration advice programme hosted by Surjit Singh Ghuman MBE and Gurpal Oppal. Monty Panesar, the first Sikh cricketer to play for England, hosts a Saturday afternoon show and has featured guests such as Andrew Flintoff, Lord Rami Ranger CBE, Nina Wadia OBE and Apache Indian BEM.
