‘My in­ter­est in ra­dio started maybe a week be­fore I be­gan do­ing ra­dio…’ Julie, 29, tells us with a roar­ing snig­ger, which, she says, is one of the rea­sons peo­ple tune in. ‘I have a funny laugh! And

I play good mu­sic.’ Both are true, and her com­mit­ment is un­par­al­leled; she spends up to three hours a day sift­ing through new tracks. Af­ter help­ing her broth­ers – grime artists Skepta and JME – pro­mote their own mu­sic, Julie and a friend, broad­caster Sian An­der­son, landed a Rinse FM show, but she was soon poached by Ap­ple’s ra­dio ven­ture Beats 1 to be­come its UK an­chor. Here, she’s spo­ken to ev­ery­one from P Diddy to Brit­ney Spears, in be­tween her rai­son d’etre; bring­ing us new sounds. Julie’s on Beats 1, Ap­ple Mu­sic, Mon to Thurs, 8pm
