  1. Greg is a bit of a secret geek so I'm wondering what it means for the presentation of his new show. Possibly a return for cheesy jingles a la Moyles?
  2. It sounds like a good deal for them both. Delighted for Greg to get the show (explains why he's no longer on the Chart Show!) and it takes pressure off Grimmy while still getting a good gig. I'm guessing Greg might undo some of the work Grimmy has done in shedding older listeners, but like Scott, he's able to position himself as a young voice while still attracting a slightly older audience (something Moyles struggled with). I wonder if they'll eventually drop the Fridays being the new weekend when Greg is in place?

    Do you mean for the forums?

    Friday is now the weekend

    I was thinking that the other day, there's a lot of content from yesteryear Scott and others wouldn't be able to do these days!

    Although I remember this chart show with Scott, Laura and Chappers which worked as a one-off. http://unofficialmills.co.uk/download/radio-1s-chart-show-28th-march-2006/

    It seems to tick all of the boxes that Ben Cooper has to deal with though. Dwindling listenership, a large wage bill for the bigger DJs, a male-dominated schedule. Not saying it will work though...

    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.

    See I wasn't convinced by a second podcast, it sounded like a harder sell, but it will be interesting to see how it performs.

    New Weekend Schedule February 2018

    Not sure how Example helps with the need for more female voices. Sent using the Unofficial Mills app
  10. 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

    Have to agree Jordan has brought some fresh energy into covering Greg's show and is more in tune with the usual style of programme.
  13. A good blog here from @Matt D on the RAJARs. http://www.mattdeegan.com/2017/10/26/rajar-q32017/ Grimmy's slumped to the smallest audience for Radio 1 breakfast, but there's good news for Clara, Greg, Annie Mac, and Scott who have seen growing audiences. This somewhat contradicts that Radio 1's audience are shunning radio - although I guess they have more appeal with older audiences. Moyles and Radio X are also on the up which is pleasing to see.
  14. An impressive number of recognisable artists BBC Introducing have supported over ten years in one way or another. Florence and the Machine, Alt-J, Ed Sheeran, Marina and the Diamonds, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Bombay Bicycle Club, Chvrches, Everything Everything, Chipmunk, Two Door Cinema Club, Soak, George Ezra, Jack Garratt, Wretch 32, Gabrielle Aplin, Slaves, Royal Blood, Speech Debelle, Jake Bugg, Declan McKenna, Viola Beach, Rizzle Kicks, The Ting Tings, Circa Waves... https://www.bbc.co.uk/events/eq2fbp/play/p05hd0s3

    50th Birthday Celebrations

    Yes the Radio 1 Vintage page should take you to the podcasts. I'm a bit lost without the station today - feel it could been even bigger than three days. Still I guess it's time to look forward again now! Sent from my SM-G955F using the Unofficialmills.co.uk mobile app
