    Omg yay I'll look forward to it. I'm a few days behind though, so I guess I'll have to wait a bit longer to hear it But she IS the new Beccy, I'm telling you.

    Also hoping that Scott & Chris do a couple red button commentaries again like the last World Cup and Euros.

    How'd you guess? I should probably lay off, she's not the devil. Although she has now been bumped from Rage for Molly King.

    I can only think and I'm not being rude but I don't think she is good enough to host anything but greatest hits I Wodnt be suprised if next Feb when her contract is up she leaves radio 1

    In my opinion, Jordan (or should I say Gordan!) sounded great today. Loved the chat with Grimmy before his show. He also handled the live lounge well, like he's done it a million times before!!

    Having one consistent cover dj makes a lot of sense - particularly one who won’t have to ditch their own show to do the cover and then have someone cover them! Let’s Jordan build a raft of features he could just take to each time slot and have a Jordan North Cover Show format almost Sent from my iPhone using the Unofficialmills.co.uk mobile app

    As well as the chart and dance anthems on Friday, Jordan's also covering dance anthems on Saturday: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09xpd51

    Radio 1 Podcasts

    Is anyone else listening to the comedy podcasts? I quite enjoyed the Ed and Lauren Get On podcast (which has recently finished) due to their funny but down to earth style. It just feels very relaxed and I could see this being brought back as they seem to be quite natural on the radio. General discussions about the funny side of life in a great partnership of real-world comedians. Niki and Sammy's Peachy Podcast however hasn't been great as they spend most of the time talking about themselves and often have to have guests for the show to sound entertaining - it seems very similar to Grimmy's show - forced fun, reliance on guests and awful features (description friction in this case). They are just run-of-the-mill youtubers though so no great expectations here! Scott and Chris' Best in Show is great, replaying games and features from the past couple of years, I t would be better though if they went back even further to things we won't all remember or have heard before bu overall, it works well and is a great idea as a lot of radio is never repeated but Scott's show deserves to be promoted in this way due to its long history for being so entertaining. The Kench podcast will feature many shorter series', the current of which being Ray Moss - No Stone Unturned. This is very different from the others as it is a fictional, light-hearted detective series in which he tries to investigate mock-up cases sent in by listeners. It seems very good in the way the stories are quite funny and interesting and he is a great character. So all in all these new podcasts are a great addition to the R1 collection and I would recommend them to people who enjoy the existing podcasts. In my eyes a much better idea than the constant documentaries and R1 takeover's we were bombarded in this slot before!

    Well then... very unexpected. The good: Great to see Mollie King permanently joining Matt, I think we all thought she fitted in well. I'm normally against non-radio celebs getting permanent airtime but Mollie feels like a natural. I'm not overly bothered about Matt on his own but with Mollie it should be an entertaining listen. Mills getting the Chart is fantastic. I can't see Chris joining him as the show isn't very zoo-format worthy but Mills has always been better than any chart host he's covered so should be good. Dev and Alice are two of my personal favourites at Radio 1 so I'll never say no to more of them. The bad: As much as Clara's show isn't my cup of tea the weekday 10-1 slot is traditionally the most new/live music-oriented show on the daytime line-up, and she's fit into that particular role nicely. I thought Radio 1 were supposed to be increasing their new music quota and I don't see how churning out the likes of Teenage Dirtbag or Mr Brightside again, now on a weekday (sort-of), is helping that. Maya's got potential but I don't think she's there yet. A weekday show is a big gig so we'll need to hear how that works out. The Chart extending to 7pm is disappointing, even if it is with Mills. I thought the condensed hours worked better for a show which for a large part is songs which have come and gone from the playlist weeks ago. Dance Anthems was always a nice little segue into the specialist dance shows of Friday nights. Poor move scrapping the Friday edition. A bold move from Cooper ditching three of the station's biggest names one day per week but innovation is never a bad thing.

    I mean as far as schedule changes go this isn't as dramatic as I expected this year's overhaul to be - no one has been binned! It seems to say a lot about Radio 1 that Scott's had a boost from this news, he seemed a natural fit for the chart show from his cover stints in the past. Not sure what to make of the fact Maya lasted only a few months working with Scott and Chris though! Will the chart show now return to a 3 hour show rather than the weird reboot it has been in more recent years? I wonder if this is Ben Cooper's way of getting the wage bill down - presumably Grimmy will be getting less now unless they're expecting the usual Friday hosts to do some more elsewhere. Jordan is great, it's a shame we're not hearing more of him, but Mollie King and Matt Edmondson are a good match.

    To be honest, this is probably going to be good for Matt as they both worked really well together when she was on. I'm looking forward to hearing more of this! Maybe that toilet gag persuaded the bosses of R1 to add her to the schedule!

    Whether or whether she isn't, it's nice to hear some new voices, especially when they make Scott cackle like he was yesterday [emoji23] Sent using the Unofficial Mills app

    She is VERY good on yesterday's podcast. Scott does seem to be throwing over to his team for on-air responses more than what he used, which is definitely no bad thing at all!

    I’m also liking Jordan covering but he seems to be playing LOADS more songs than Greg does (and even Dev when he covers)

    New Weekend Schedule February 2018

    I second the praise of Chris Sawyer - he is fantastic, possibly the best producer they've got. On another note, I'm gonna point out something that will annoy you all and you'll never be able to un-notice it. Maya Jama has delusions that she can sing, and she seems to do it in every single link. She seems to think that in the absence of any real wit, singing is a way of being funny. It isn't. It's annoying.
