  1. Schedule Changes

    I retract my statement. Ouch! In the words of Mills, 'what a salad!'.

    I don't think it was a sacking. Radio 1 have just retweeted the Press Office tweet and I wouldn't have thought they would have wanted publicity of a sacking in such a way.
  3. Schedule Changes

    Monday 6th November.
  4. Schedule Changes

    Correct. In the late 80s/early 90s, there were hourly news updates from 6:30am-8:30pm then at 10:30pm and 12:30am on weekdays, along with the 15 minute programmes.

    I am still confused as to why they've reverted back to 2 hour evening shows. I thought the whole point of 3 hour shows was to save money?

    Shame that Jordan is still on the subs bench for now.

    UPDATE: The R1 official press release confirms that The Surgery and Radio 1 Stories/Documentaries will be incorporated into the revamped 4pm-7pm Sunday show.
  8. Schedule Changes

    I can't remember when the Specialist Chart was introduced but, in my opinion, maybe it's a good thing that it's being dropped. There are too many charts on the station as it is - The Official Chart on a Friday, Dance Chart on a Saturday (which will probably be dropped after Danny moves to Fridays) and Cel's 'Most Played on R1' chart on a Sunday. Phil does a lot of work for VEVO so it's not like he'll be sitting around waiting for Sunday at 10pm to roll around. Perhaps we'll see more of him doing weekend cover, especially if Jordan does get the 4pm-7pm on a Saturday.

    There has been no official press release yet, either by the BBC Press Office or the R1 press office – just an article on Newsbeat’s website. Even then it is still patchy. Charlie’s new show starts on Monday 6th November. MistaJam will replace Charlie on 1Xtra drive, but no word on Jam’s replacement. There is mention of a new show for DJ Target but does not give a time slot. You are correct in saying that Kan D Man and DJ Limelight will present a show together on Sundays between 1am and 3am. This part replaces Target’s current show. Cel and Katie will present on Sundays between 4pm and 7pm. The new show will be called ‘Life Hacks’ – to me, it suggests that The Surgery will be either dropped or merged into this new show somewhat. R1 will also launch three new entertainment and music podcasts. These will be broadcast between 3am-4am on Wednesday-Friday mornings. The 4pm-7pm slot on Saturdays is still vacant (I would LOVE Jordan North to be given a shot at this!). If he doesn’t, it is a huge shame as he is brilliant. Phil Taggart loses out again!

    Didn't know that Whitney Houston was a cover presenter for Simon Bates!
  11. 50th Birthday Celebrations

    He's brilliant! The northern wit too just tops it off. The R1 Greatest Hits show is SO good!
  12. MistaJam covering for Greg

    Dev was unavailable to cover as he was in Majorica (I think!). Yasser covered his weekend show. Mistajam was much better than Cel Spellman!
  13. BBC R1 Summer Mix 2017

    Mistajam was covering Greg last Thursday and Friday because Greg and Chris Smith were doing signings of their newly released children's book 'Kid Normal' - not because of summer mix advert filming. Scott and Greg appeared to film their pieces in the morning and Grimmy and Clara in the afternoon.
  14. Schedule Re-Think is Imminent!

    I have done a little research and, since the start of this year, Matt has had five full weekends off and four half weekends off (half meaning does one out of two days). Does anyone else think holiday entitlement is too generous? For example, Clara does five shows a week at almost three hours long and still manages to fit other commitments around that.
  15. Schedule Re-Think is Imminent!

    It's unlikely but if he does, can Matt be the first one out the door and replace him with somebody who actually bothers to do his contracted hours?
