    • If doing a Live Lounge from Justin Bieber's house and another one from LA with Usher is "not bothering", I think the standards are a bit too high here! They've definitely reigned it in a bit from the initial Even More Music Month- they went to a huge effort with that and I loved the imaging so it's a shame that all it is now is an expanded Live Lounge although the line-up this year is fantastic and should make for some great radio (and video). One of the format changes from EMMM still stands- at the top of the hour, Scott now plays two songs, a short link ramping into a 3rd song and then a 4th song before the first main link at 1:15. Before, it was 2 songs, then 1 song, then the first main link. It does seem a bit odd that Annie is doing a double shift Wednesday to Friday when they could've gotten Alice or Adele to cover. Very strange decision. I am delighted, though, to hear Annie doing daytime cover again. I thought she'd never cover the 10am show again after moving to the 7pm weekday show. This might be a one-off but I'm looking forward to it- she has one of the best personalities on Radio 1 and is one of the strongest presenters. It's a credit to her that even though she's a specialist presenter, she is a fantastic listen on a show that isn't so music-focussed.
    • Another thing I have to point out is the scheduling. Clara will be out in LA but won't be hosting her show from there, instead Annie Mac will be sitting in for Clara on the 31st-2nd September at 10am-12:45pm. I'm suprised the likes of Jordan North or Nick Bright can't cover, it means Annie will be both doing double shift's those days.
    • It's still a pretty decent lineup, despite the lack of weekend performances.  Perhaps doing a show from Justin Bieber's house blew the budget this year. 
    • It's like they can't really be bothered this year - when they first did EMMM back in 2013 I thought it was pretty great despite my initial reservations and the fact that they did actually play slightly more music than usual. 2014 was good, but a clear step down effort wise from 2013. I didn't like it when they scaled it back to Live Lounge Month for 2015, and this year they're doing it again, but they're only doing Live Lounges on weekdays. I don't know why they still bother, each year has been a scaled back version of the last. I feel like this will be the last one they do. Thoughts?  
    • Anna, despite the slightly gravelly voice seems to be the up and coming newsreader - seems to be the regular dep for Tina on breakfast and Chris in the afternoons. I'd hope Chris stays with Greg, wherever he ends up. Cat Collins has quite a good newsreading voice, Declan Harvey is always lovely to listen to as is Steffan, Jonathan Blake and Steve Holden are good too although it really annoys me when Steve does the entertainment news on breakfast cause he does this really odd thing with his voice where it sounds like he's permanently about to start laughing. And I love Duncan Middleton, but he's not on very often. His chats with Greg on early breakfast were great.
