  1. I've uploaded all of the shows to the website - They could do with being clipped to just the speech but for now they're there so we know we have them.
  2. We're all friends here!
  3. Radio 1 yesterday played Spiller and Sophie Ellis Bexter which was Number 1 a whole 17 years ago. That feels like it could have been out just a few years ago, yet it's considerably a long time ago. It's crazy. Sent from my iPhone using the mobile app
  4. I've found it pretty difficult staying on top of when Scott is on. I thought he was off for Bank Holidays but he's on today.
  5. I'll be watching this tonight but I'm not sure I hold much hope for Scott defeating his opponents. Perhaps like with Pointless it will be Chris who gives Scott the boost he needs!
  6. Sounds a lot like Capital or Kiss, but perhaps that's what he needs. A lot more lively than the usual breakfast show sound!
  7. I think it's like Twitter verification - you need a lot of sources.
  8. Ben Cooper, who currently oversees Radio 1 and 1Xtra, will have the Asian Network added to his remit. Meanwhile interim chiefs have been appointed for Radio 2 and 6 Music – Lewis Carnie and Paul Rodgers respectively – while Shennan gets about recruiting a full-time Controller for those two stations. In an email to BBC Radio staff published by Radio Today, Shennan said: “We have come a long way over the past few years on all platforms and we have exciting plans underway to deliver even more success in the future. We have a real opportunity to bolster our radio stations, attract new audiences and harness the global technological revolution. I know that if we work together we can build an even bigger, better BBC Radio”. While I understand the need for costcutting, Radio 1 and 1Xtra seems to need a lot of focus at the moment, surely giving the top boss another task isn't in the interest of Radio 1, 1Xtra or Asian Network?
  9. I remember that! Our Vern was quite the geek when he was at Radio 1.
  10. Ben Cooper is in the Guardian today talking about ratings, the possible BBC Three and Radio 1 merger, and his plan to offer a Netflix style radio service. It's quite a comprehensive interview, mostly he's on the defense.
  11. This did confuse me [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using the mobile app
  12. How about some Scooter? [emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using the mobile app
  13. It sounds like Scott is in need of help in Bangers at the moment. What songs would you use to take on the mighty Chris Stark at Bangers? And what songs would you want to hear on Radio 1?
  14. Reminds me of the BBC Three situation. The television channel was allowed to fail before they decided to move online because the youth aren't watching television as much. There's talk of young people listening to less radio but is that because it's an outdated concept, or because youth-obsessed managers have made the wrong decisions?
  15. Hopefully it's not just new music. This could be a great side project for Scott as a big name at Radio 1. I'm sure many of his listeners would tune into online shows, especially if it means he spent more time with Radio 1.
