    24 Hour LOLathon with Scott and Chris

    Actual LOL at Jordan and Scott just now: Jordan: oh god, they're gonna send me back to local radio - oh wait, all the jobs have gone. Scott: it's all coming from London now babes, Rock FM's not on anymore.

    I think today's caller on Yesterday's Quiz got confused and thought it was Wronguns...

    Greg was on with Matt Edmondson and Molly King just now and they were suggesting features, then at the end Matt goes "I've got one more... How about Car Park Catchphrase"?

    24 Hour LOLathon with Scott and Chris

    In fairness her format is deliberately music based, but it sounds awful because she’s an awful radio presenter. If Scott did that format it’d sound slick and funny. Funny how not even on social media has Maya acnowlaged the Lolathon, I’m still conceived she doesn’t know it’s happening haha.

    24 Hour LOLathon with Scott and Chris

    This last hour and a half has been the best radio I think I’ve ever heard on Radio 1. It’s nice to see all the DJs being able to show their (rude) personalities. And Jordan has really really stood out tonight. A shame that’s greg won’t be on until the morning as I enjoyed him doing the rude bits last time!!

    Maya Jama (sigh)

    So, Maya She's on twice a week and has been for nearly a year now, but does anyone else just feel like she doesn't fit in to radio 1? She never seems part of the team or that she cares about her show, there's literally no mention of her on any other show unless they're taking the piss out of her, she never covers and still makes basic mistakes, does anyone else just feel like she doesn't fit in at the station? I'm surprised she hasn't been sacked yet to be honest Or does anyone have a very different opinion and want to talk me around?

    New show, new thread. It feels like Christmas eve! I'll be up at half-six tomorrow to listen, who's with me? Wonder who the guest is? (Also that's a great book I would highly recommend). I wonder whether they'll do what Moyles used to do and have the news at 6:26 so they can start with the pips at half past?

    Yet more new presenters!

    After his first week I can say that Jack's show is my new favourite. It's on a bit late for me though, so I can only listen to it on iplayer next day, if they ever swap it with Charlie's, that'd be even better.

    Chris's Friday Extra Podcast

    On Chris’ podcast last week, when he was speaking to Scott, Scott seemed to announced that’s Innuendo Bingo would be back before Christmas but with bigger celebrities than they used to have!

    I'm loving how much press there is about the show - yet another one has landed today! This time it's Scott Bryan at BuzzFeed (a fan of the show, he listens to the podcast and took part in the Paintalong) with a behind the scenes of the pilot shows. https://www.buzzfeed.com/scottybryan/greg-james-breakfast-bbc-radio-1-interview?utm_term=.wvQe8g0enE#.fuvw5Xgwk2

    Dev and Alice: interim drivetime

    I've been thinking about this a lot, and I think there's something in it. The thing Alice Levine lacks as a radio presenter is a bond with the audience. I can't put my finger on why - maybe it's the regular absences, maybe it's the sarcastic and slightly cutting sense of humour. But you never quite feel like she's talking to you in the same way you do with Greg, or Scott, or Dev, or Matt, or Grimmy. Weird. But sadly I think she's brought that over to the show with Dev - it now feels a bit more insular with him than when he's by himself. I'm not sure why - I like double acts and zoo formats in general. There's just something that doesn't feel quite right with her. I miss Dev's solo shows.

    Grimmy and Greg Hide and Seek

    Could they be in Denbigh? There was a school there that they did the show from for the pedal to the peaks challenge, plus it was mentioned on the show yesterday when Greg got it "muddled" with Tenby.

    Also, Sophie of of Scott Mills has tweeted to say are there any music teachers missing a gong? Could just be throwing us off the scent but still

    Grimmy and Greg Hide and Seek

    Well, I'm also pro-school. The gong might have just been in the Music classroom, right? The thing is, it doesn't really narrow down the possibilities that much. There's plenty of teachers that listen to R1 and they'd be up for it too.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    He said on the first show that it'll just be one best bit from the show, rather than one with everything in like Scott's

    I think he meant to get listeners involved in with the guest which is what he managed to do. I think they’ll be a bit more flexible with guests once the show has settled in and once they’ve got rid of the summer mix so they have more time!

    For those that missed the original, all I can explain the imaging as is it had a sung theme, which sounded like it could be quite chanty. They had a tagline like 'The one to wake up with' or something

    So Greg's last drivetime song was Mystery Jets - Bubblegum, which helped him with his 1st Gregathlon and is one of his favs. I think Grimmy didn't choose his last breakfast show song by himself, Drake - Nice for what, which they play everyday. Just a small detail here, but it's kind of showing the attitude they both have. Grimmy's treating his show just like job and Greg being ever so engaged with it. Grimmy's never been my favourite DJ, but he seems like a decent, nice chap and I hope that he'll find his new show exciting and will want to do something brilliant with it. I'll remember his breakfast show as just an okay one. [EDIT]: didn't notice that OhhErr also wrote about Grimmy's last song. Yes: Hm. sums it up neatly.

    How R1 Shows are titled

    I think it should be Adele Roberts Jordan North Sits in That makes much more sense and keeps it similar to what you would expect to be hearing

    I think this is gonna be a really good week on Greg's show - he's bringing back loads of old features. So far today we've had Count the Cocks and What Is This Song In Panpipes with Chris Smith, and and he's doing Wronguns as well.

    "We'll cobble something together". Not to forget Gary the Psychic Moth, Funty the Fun Time Puppet Pal, Warwick Hunt (the BBC's Head of Editorial Compliance), Peter Spendthrift (Radio 1's original Money Saving Expert) and Tim the Twitter Trending Expert. Plus Matt's Rich Uncle Alan, Doc Beige and Taio Cruz's secret diary. It was only one hour once a week for 18 months, and yet it had so many memorable moments. It would really suit the 3am comedy slot, they should bring it back.

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

    Congrats to both Greg and Grimmy on this one, I have enjoyed Grimmy’s interpretation of the breakfast show but I do feel it was time for a change! One good thing that no one has mentioned yet, if Chris Smith does move with Greg, there should be more freedom for them to chat and for Chris to get involved with the show again as the news isn’t simulcasted on 1xtra! Like Ben i’m interested in what the imaging will be like (still waiting for Scotts new chart package as well)!

    I think this is a great move all round, this way Radio 1 should get a breakfast show with a bit more clout and a host hungry to be in the hotseat, while Grimmy will get a prominent slot that plays to his strengths better. I reckon Grimmy's underrated on here really, I think his time on nights, daytime cover and first couple of years on breakfast were brilliant and justified his promotion over Greg in 2012, to be honest. I do think his show has been on autopilot for a few years now though, it just feels like the team have no real ideas for it and want any excuse to stick on a mix for an hour or so. I feel like Grimmy's like Sara Cox in that he's at his best when he doesn't have to stick to a script, so if he's given less of a straitjacket and a decent features producer, I think afternoons should be a return to form for him. Greg's probably a bigger name than Grimmy and has obviously been angling for this job for years, so hopefully this will mean we'll get a breakfast show with more prominence, like the Chris Moyles Show. At its worst, Grimmy's show sounded like any other daytime show. I want Greg's show to sound like a proper breakfast show plz

    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.

    Biggest Weekend 2018

    Have to say, I'm a bit jealous watching all the Instagram stories of the Radio 1 DJs right now. They're all out in Swansea and it looks like they're having such a laugh, is it weird that I'd love to be mates with them. Chris Stark and Jordan's are particularly good, they've filmed Matt Edmondson and Molly King riding off on scooters ditching them. It's very funny.

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

    Loving Sophie's recent appearances. The overeating thing was very funny. She reminds me of Beccy. They should get her on more. Weird that Scott seems to make his APs sit outside the studio now, unless it was just for effect on the radio. Otherwise I don't see why they'd do the whole thing through talkback instead of getting her on a mic.
