  1. Katie Thistleton is presenting the Surgery next Wednesday but I have no idea if she is the permanent replacement.
  2. Talk about low-key exit! No idea who will replace her but I bet we will know before 10pm.
  3. Ready Steady Cook.... WHOOOOOOoooOOOOOooooOOOOoooOOO!
  4. When all of the usual breakfast team is off on holiday, yes, all of Scott's team move to breakfast and all of Matt's would move into Scott's show for the period of time that they cover but this is not always the case. However, if Scott covers breakfast when Grimmy is off sick or has the odd day off (usually Monday or Friday), the breakfast team will remain unchanged (i.e. Fiona as AP, Tina as newsreader etc) as will Scott's team in the afternoon.
  5. Most of the time when Alice plays, it is live because, as you said, she's in during the week preparing for her shows. As for other pre-recorded stuff, almost all the weekend interviews are pre-recorded. With Scott's show, things like the Who game and some listener stories (especially when you see Scott's/Chris' pleas on Twitter) are done prior to the show. Other listener's stories can be entirely live though.
  7. Great WHOOOOO! British Home Stores... WHOOOOoooooOOOOOOOoooOOOO! (Too soon?).
  8. It would be a MASSIVE mistake if the bosses went out of their way to remove Mills from Radio 1. He is by far the best DJ on the station.
  9. Mid-April, I think but don't quote me on that!
  10. I remember that too. Out of all the comedians they could have picked to get in, the producers chose this absolute salad. Seemed like an odd choice of guest considering they were so vocal in their dislike of him.
  11. Harry Hill and Lee Nelson on in the last hour. Both massive WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO's, in my opinion!
  12. Abbie presents the BBC Introducing show in Kent and has provided cover for Huw in quite a few times in the last year or so. I've never listened back to a whole show of hers but what I have heard is very good!
  13. GMTV with Fiona Phillips and Ben Shepherd. WHOOOOOOOOOOOO!
  14. Content quality is far too low, I agree. The Breakfast Show has a cheap version of Bangers at 7:10am, three hourly updates of Ents News and a guest and the guest is on at 8:10am and the interview, more often that not, is wrapped by 8:25am. There is no features after 9am, expect for Throwback Thursday and the Nixtape on a Friday. There is no content on Clara's show if there is not a Live Lounge - just links to the next song and ANOTHER Ents update at 10:40am. The afternoon shows are the best for content. Scott & Chris have Bangers everyday at 2:40pm, Innuendo Bingo twice a week, RoNR and Bambaleo Wednesday but I have noticed that even Innuendo Bingo has been scaled back over the last year or so. If you watch the videos done with Dev and Greg James from this time last year, they were around 11 or 12 minutes long - now you are lucky if they are 7 or 8 minutes long but I suspect this is because of the quality of contestants and whether they enjoy the game or not. Greg has a feature every day after 5pm and every day after 6pm - after the 10 minute takeover. I get that Radio 1 is supposed to be leading the way for new music but the features are getting shorter and shorter and they seem to think we, the listeners, don't notice. I think there is such a thing as too much music as you can easily fit 40 songs into three hours (I am sure Clara has more than this even though her show is 15 minutes shorter!) and have plenty time for features without them feeling rushed.
  15. They only usually play shorter versions of songs on Friday (cos New Music Friday) but I have heard shortened songs during the weekend shows too, particularly after the news and at the top of the hour.
