The Live Lounge is a segment on the Britishmarker radio station BBC Radio 1. Originally hosted by Jo Whiley on her mid-morning radio show and now hosted by Fearne Cotton, it exhibits well-known artists usually performing one song of their own and one by another artist, in an acoustic format. The Live Lounge itself is also a physical room in the Radio 1 studios where some of the performances are broadcast from. Not all of the broadcasts are performed from this room however, due to its size, and many are done from the BBC Maida Vale Studiosmarker. The songs chosen as cover versions are often from a completely different genre to that which the performer originates, and offer a new perspective on the original songs. Jamie Cullum's cover of Pharrell's Frontin' led to Cullum being signed to Pharrell's label Star Trak when played to him at a later visit to The Jo Whiley Show, and was added to his 2003 album Twentysomething. The album Radio 1's Live Lounge was released on 16 October 2006 and reached Number 1 in the UK Compilation Chart. The first follow-up, Radio 1's Live Lounge – Volume 2, was released on 22 October 2007 while the second follow up, Radio 1's Live Lounge - Volume 3, was released on 20 October 2008. Another CD is slated to release on 26th October 2009.
