I think it might be Alice because Matt did all the week before and his weekend shows would mean he would do lots of radio in a row and obviously they couldn’t have Dev and Alice because Dev is doing the 8th.
I do wonder though why Jordan isn’t covering at all? He sounded good in the summer with Chris. He’s not covering the Greatest Hits when Maya is off either. I wonder if he’s getting a bit of time off before he probably does a show everyday round Christmas!
I think you're reading into it way too much. He's only in the door 5 minutes!
Realistically, he's in there at night so has probably only gotten to know the night time DJs properly so far. I've also noticed there's been a lot less of presenters appearing on other people's shows in general recently. You used to have other DJs appearing on Real or no Real with Scott or Rage Against the Answer Machine with Greg but there's much less of that now so kind of difficult for Jack to get exposure like that.
I don't think he's comparable with Jordan, who is a daytime DJ and used to always be on during daytime at the weekend as well as covering early breakfast and Drive so there's much more room for crossover with the other presenters and for them to hear him. I doubt a lot of the R1 presenters are listening at 11pm so they might not have heard much of Jack yet.
