  1. Today
  2. Ahead of the first show on Monday, I wanted to put together a Greg James breakfast show bingo card. This is what I've got so far, is there anything to add?

  3. So I've been listening to some old podcasts lately and found a couple of gems. I thought maybe you have your favourites that you come back to often and we could share them. I'll go for my 3 favourites, all from 2016 because that's where I'm at now: - Bongo Bum Buddies (10.10.2016) - You Make WHAT Kind of Cakes (12.10.2016) - Contact YAAAAS (16.02.2016)
  4. Yesterday
  5. The “Show” has been dropped and so Greg’s new show is just Radio 1 Breakfast With Greg James. Crap.

    Is Chris Smith leaving Newsbeat?

    Chris leaving is sad news. I’m in mourning. He can’t go! He IS Newsbeat. I can understand Tina going after all the online stuff that’s been floating around recently, but a Chris to?! Noooooooo! 2 of the best presenters gone. No offence to the others but if they haven’t got annoying accents they can’t fade in the jingle with their intro headline properly. Grinds my gears that latter one...
  7. Sorry its 1:07:40. Got the minute wrong
  8. Can’t find it at that time at all?
  9. Starts at around 1:08:40. Greg was a couple of songs behind
  10. do you know what time in the show that was also for note Scott used the standard Grimmy jingles, so its still branded "The Radio 1 breakfast show with Scott Mills" so differing from the last time he covered between hosts

    Schedule Changes

    The schedule on the BBC website currently says Grimmy is hosting the breakfast show on the Thursday 23rd. Obviously a mistake, but surely someone should have spotted it by now and fixed it
  12. All of this sounds good to me apart from the Ten Minute Takeover - i think that just be binned off tbh
  13. All sounds very promising and I like the sound of the approach he's going for. Glad to hear that the Ten Minute Takeover is coming along for the ride! Also Scott faded Greg's practice run up this morning briefly. You could hear he was playing the song that Scott had just finished playing.
  14. A very interesting interview. As well as the points that have already been pointed out, it looks like the Ten Minute Takeover is staying which is good news.

    When will Scott's time be up?

    I tend to agree about Scott keeping the chart, and transitioning like Sara Cox, by covering shows on both R1 and 2 before a permanent slot is available I feel that the major change will be initiated by someone like Chris Evans or Ken Bruce or Steve Wright leaving R2 to retire, or go somewhere else, which will open a daytime door for Sara Cox for sure, and then Scott could start with her nighttime show, or as many have said before he'd be an ideal fit to directly replace Ken Bruce or Wrighty, Scott and Chris doing Steve Wrights show would be the one I reckon as they can take stuff like banter innuendo bingo and real or no real would be great features for that show I think his current afternoon show has some more mileage, does anyone realise now Greg has moved, Scott is the longest in his current daytime slot, and almost now as long as he was on drive He also has a major string to his bow, he's the breakfast cover, and looks like he still will be, doing breakfast is second nature to him so he has work there for a long time I'd hate to see - and don't think it will, him do a Moyles, go off air for three years then come back on some small time commercial rival

    Greg is the new Breakfast Show host as Nick Grimshaw quits

    Greg's doing a live chat on the Guardian at the moment, some very interesting answers to questions! Few of my faves below... https://www.theguardian.com/music/live/2018/aug/10/greg-james-webchat-bbc-radio-1-breakfast-show

    Schedule Changes

    Yes Scott said on the chart show Friday he and Chris was doing a show on the 26th. Good to see lot's of coverage from the festival. I think that's the most coverage down for Reading & Leeds that Radio 1 has provided in years.

    Schedule Changes

    Some interesting scheduling on Friday 24th: 10:00 Radio 1s Greatest Hits with Maya and Jordan 12:00 Greg James live from Reading festival 2:00 Matt and Mollie live from reading festival I presume that Scott is doing a show live from Reading later in the weekend as I think he announced that he was doing a show from there didn’t he?

    When will Scott's time be up?

    I agree 100%. Scott's very sensible and he genuinely cares about Chris. He acts like his big brother and I too, think that his decision will take Chris into account. There was a similar topic a couple of months ago - about Chris's future in R1 after Scott leaves. For me - I believe he will move on with Scott. Two reasons for that: 1. he's never been allowed to do a show by himself, so he'd have to be 'an addition' to somebody's show and I can't imagine him working permanently with any other DJ - not that it wouldn't be good, but there's no chemistry like between those two; 2. I think that if Chris would be given a choice - R1 or Scott, he'd go with Scott, maybe doing some iPlayer stuff or features for other DJs, purely because it just wouldn't be the same for him.
  20. Last week
  21. The description of the first show. Bigger in what sense I wonder? Bigger team? Bigger sounding? An acknowledgement that the last few years of the breakfast show have been small and unmemorable?

    When will Scott's time be up?

    A couple of years back, people reckoned that if Scott left, Chris would be inherited by someone like Matt Edmondson or Alice Levine - but now they're both answered for. Plus Chris himself is now a bit more mature so Scott's probably conscious that Chris has a mortgage to pay in deciding what he does next and when he does it!

    When will Scott's time be up?

    I think that if there are suitable replacements in 2020, thats when Scott might leave the afternoon show. I never believed for one second he would leave in 2015, because his show was and still is the best on the daytime schedule. Its clear they are trying a lot of duos out but they’re not really sticking. This could be the early steps of finding Scott’s replacement, or not at all! I can see Scott keeping the Chart for maybe a a year or two more after he leaves afternoons while he transitions to Radio 2. Just a prediction though - I’d like Scott to stay on Radio 1 for many more....

    When will Scott's time be up?

    Oh and another one for the prediction - what happens to Chris in this situation? Is he given his own show? Or cohosts with someone else?
  25. So I was wondering if anyone has any predictions about scotts future at radio 1. I think everyone knows he's closer to the end there than the beginning, but people thought he might leave around 2015 a few years back, but he still seems to be going strong. His show still sounds fresh and he was recently offered the chart slot. Do we think he has another few years in him? Or after things have settled with Greg and Grimmy will there be a final, big schedule change before the schedules are more set again? I was just interested in what people thought. Personally I think his afternoon show might go to Dev and Alice in the next year and he would become chart and do weekday cover. Disclaimer: I really don't want Scott to go, I'll miss him!

    Is Chris Smith leaving Newsbeat?

    I guess Tina wasn't as much a part of the Newsbeat team as Chris, partly because of the hours she does mean she's finished just as most of the team are starting and also because she's had a foot out of the door for the last couple of years now.
  27. I'm really looking forward to the new show il be able to listen to the whole show so will be able to give a good review, I wonder weather Greg will have more leave than grimmy did
