  1. The Going Home Song is recorded during the show that they ask for the callers, for example on Fridays before the chart moved in they would record Mondays GHS then, Tuesdays would be done during Mondays show etc etc. It's usually one of the AP's jobs to do the GHS.
  2. Dance Anthems has had the odd new vocal on there I've notice, but I agree the others need to be updated. Newsbeat especially! Since Greg took over the chart I've never been a fan of the vocals, I don't know what they did to them but they sound bloody awful!
  3. I used to have the "Live" video feed in a html page on my laptop for exactly this reason, although when the cameras aren't on, you do just get the "This is BBC Radio 1, Our Cameras aren't on at the moment blahh blahh..." so bit disappointing. But they can do things with the cameras independent of them being on the live video output (just like they could record a link with a caller during a song and we'd never know).
  4. I seem to remember someone (think it was @OohErr ?) mentioning about the long gap between the "1" and "Where It Begins" in one of the new TOHs... Well Scotts found a use for it! https://www.dropbox.com/s/sxdoz0clvv01uir/BBC_Radio_1_-_Theme_1_-_Scott_Mills-_ID.mp3?dl=0
  5. You beat me too it! NSM (part of the WiseBuddah group funnily enough) is where R1 get a lot of their beds from nowadays!
  6. I'm with you on this! Another thing that is annoying is The Official Chart is still using old voices... They even used old voices for the trail that went out on Friday! (here it is if you missed it https://www.dropbox.com/s/zhjcb2qbu7so7xg/Chart Trail 10-02-2017.mp3?dl=0)
  7. Sorry mate I've completely ignored you there! What bits are you missing?
  8. Being a chart man i disliked the way Greg did it before. it doesn't help there's a limited time slot now, But if it were me I'd do it like Wes off of 2003. The top 40 used to be the last 2 hours of the chart show (the first covered last weeks number one, album chart and any competitions that were happening) when he did it and that was done in montage but playing new entries and random tracks in full till he got to the top 10 which was then in full.
  9. Already got them!
  10. Yeah all the weekday shows now have presenter IDents, not sure about weekends yet though. I too am confused by what you mean here? It's been brought into line now, old imaging is (98%) out and the new imaging is 98% in I would say! I'm personally loving this new imaging, it blows the last 2 years out of the water (although Pure did produce some awesome TOHs during those 2 years). Wisebuddah's done a great job here and they should be proud!
  11. I think gjquestion123 means they used to still play the top 40 but in montage form, where as now they just play a selection in full before the Top 10
  12. What time you listening at? Unless i'm listening at a different part?
  13. I like the cheeky Wisebuddah Re-voice on this ID: https://www.dropbox.com/s/e5jw6w8uo3yh513/BBC_Radio_1_-_Theme_8_-_ID(Wisebuddah_Ending).mp3?dl=0
  14. I don't think so, it doesn't sound like anything else produced for the breakfast show at the time. The logo at the start would suggest it was (although that's just a standard Ra-De-O-1 logo).
  15. How recent we talking?
