    Schedule Changes

    If she's good I'm willing to change my mind, but until proven otherwise can we refer to Maya Jama within the context of Scott's show as the homewrecker?

    Grimmy and Greg Hide and Seek

    This could be something... I think it's the first time in a long while that I'm waiting for the songs to be played, because I'm so glued to the radio that I can't even go to the bathroom.

    Grimmy and Greg Hide and Seek

    This is so brilliant. Grimmy's now saying he's packed 6 T-Shirts for this. And they have sleeping bags with them.

    I'm not good with changes and all these features that Greg's going to bring back this week just make me quite weepy. I love listening to R1 in the afternoons, both Scott and Greg make all the woes of the day disappear with their kindness and silliness. I know that Breakfast Show is massive and Greg deserves doing it, but at the same time, can't help but feeling quite sad. I won't be able to listen to Greg everyday, as I am now. And not having Chris Smith 'with the news' on with Greg isn't helping at all. So it's all really bittersweet for me.

    Scott's Chart Show - Updated Imaging

    Nice piece in The Guardian adverting the teaching profession with Mills talking about his school days. https://www.theguardian.com/get-into-teaching/2018/apr/28/scott-mills-my-teacher-told-me-to-go-for-it It's a similar story to the one he tells in Love You, Bye and any talks he gives if you've gone to see him, but the angle is different because it's talking about the impacts of his teachers and the like.

    Scott getting jealous over Chris bonding with Mike Skinner off of The Streets at last night's gig on Annie Mac's show was hilarious today! Chris: 'Music speaks to me. I know that's a weird thing to say.' Scott: 'I speak to you for 3 hours a day, hun!' Later on... Chris: 'I'm finding more and more that major moments in my life happen when you're around, Annie.' Scott: 'Has she allowed you to play Innuendo Bingo with Lauren Pope? No! HAHAHAHA! I love these two!

    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.

    Schedule Changes

    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.

    Jordan, I think I'm in love with you. Or at least as in love as you can be with a (presumably male) stranger off a Scott Mills forum. I just heard their interruption on the podcast and came here to write basically everything you just wrote. Totally agree, especially the Dan and Phil comparison. Hit the nail on the head. On another note, Scott just mentioned his "friend Robbie" who's married now... I reckon he was talking about Robbie Williams. They're on the record as being mates.

    New Weekend Schedule February 2018

    I don't think any of us are a fan of the Greatest Hits anymore, are we? It was great in September to mark the 50th birthday, but now it is just boring. As I have said before, Radio 1 are dedicating 8.5 hours a week to the Greatest Hits. Too much in my opinion, and some of the song choices included are questionable too!

    New Weekend Schedule February 2018

    My disappointment has moved on from Dev and Alice being paired up and Jordan only getting one show a week to Scott having Maya JAMA forced on him on Fridays. Okay it's only one day a week but I just do not see what she can add - I don't recall her being particularly funny or entertaining when she covered for Alice in December, so what can she bring to a funny and entertaining show other than stilted attempts at banter? Certainly she'll never be as funny as Beccy or Chappers. I could be wrong, but from what I've heard of her - funny she is not. Ah, who am I kidding, I'm still furious about Jordan being shafted. He's done DOZENS of shows over the last three years, and they've got better and better each time - Maya has done TWO. And they were a bit shit. Yet she gets one solo show and a co-host each week, and Jordan gets one show. Unbelievable. Ben Cooper has a history of making baffling decisions, and this is the latest. I really do not rate him as controller, you'd always get what you expected with Andy Parfitt.

    Really happy that Jordan has got his well deserved permanent slot but can't figure out why he doesn't have the mid morning on both days. Correct me if I'm wrong but hasn't Maya literally covered one show over Christmas, compared to Jordan who literally covered everyday over Christmas (including 2 6 hour shows!) She may deserve to join the cover lineup but not the main lineup yet! Might start listening to weekend breakfast again now Alice is on it, but alas I've already moved my weekend breakfast listening to Moyles on a Saturday and Jason Manford on absolute on a Sunday.

    Friday is now the weekend

    So has anyone listened much today? I heard a bit of Dev and Alice, who I do like a lot, more than Grimmy, but it just didn't sound quite right - it's a weekend breakfast show, which is obvious because that's the point of the weekend starting early, but weekday breakfast shows are a completely different beast to their weekend counterparts. Weekday breakfast shows need to feel a lot more topical and "of the day", whereas weekend breakfast shows are mostly for people travelling or finishing up on overnights. They can feel a bit more timeless, but when you have a timeless weekend breakfast show on a weekday, it doesn't quite work. That's before you get into the whole "woooo it's the weekend" thing whilst Susan, 29 from Northampton is getting ready to go to her job as a middle manager at a call centre. Or something like that. Although Dev and Alice did acknowledge that. Didn't hear Maya (nothing but respect for MY mid-mornings presenter, James. O'Brien) but I did see in the chatbox that the greatest hits stopped after 11. What stupidity. Although not too many complaints from me that they're not having too much more Greatest Hits. Should've been Jordan though, he could do with a less restrictive format. As for Matt and Molly, I didn't hear them today either but I like them and I feel like Matt's act is the one that translates best to weekdays - not to mention the fact that he's had a lot of weekday experience covering that timeslot over the years, so he knows what he's doing. But Scott on the chart is just great, I'm gonna miss having an extra day of show content but at least that awful Maya Jama arrangement is over. The trails are pretty good too, I must admit. Especially the one where Alice Levine is the Queen. Will it last? I'm not sure yet. But even if it's a dismal failure Ben Cooper would rather drive the figures into the ground before admitting he got it wrong.

    The flirtatiousness between Matt Fincham and ShowBot was hysterical at times. Made me realise just how genius Matt Fincham was as a producer.

    Any one got a clue?

    You may find something you're after that's similar on Emergency Production Music or The Imaging Cloud, I'd vouch for those two websites for sure.

    Biggest Weekend 2018

    I didn't get a chance to listen to them yesterday, but even if they do - it's still very little. A massive shame, I've always liked listening to the comments in between songs. This year it's mostly music R1 plays everyday and 2-3 songs from artist's set. Also, there was no mash-up this year. I'm not sure if they ditched it last year or just now. Again, not a fan of that.

    Couple of points about the show last week: Laughed hysterically at the "WAZZZUUUUUP" calls, they were absolutely brilliant. Possibly my favourite thing they've done for a while, so so funny. Banged my head against a wall repeatedly at Maya Jama totally not getting Scott's "ice cream" story. Which in itself was quite funny. FACEPALM.

    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!

    The Gregathlon resumes TODAY! Last night after his radio show, Greg and his team made their way up to Moffat in Dumfries & Galloway where they were stranded last time and had to abandon the mission. From today, he'll cycle from Moffat to Fort William and then climb Ben Nevis on Friday!

    Quite enjoying having Maya on Fridays. It mixes it up a bit. Also nice to hear Scott on the chart, it's been a while!

    Really bizarre changes. The biggest positive is Jordan finally gets a permanent show FINALLY. Maya reminds me of the Jameela Jamil experiment and we all know how that ended. I enjoy The Greatest Hits Show but I wish they would use more tracks other than the late 90s/00s. But hey ho. Alice teaming with Dev is a kick in the balls to Dev after all this time on his own. Still at least it means they both have a few more years with the station so it would seem. Matt getting 1-4 should be good old format. Not sure about the Co host ideas though. Only time will tell.
