  1. 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.
  2. Mid-April, I think but don't quote me on that!
  3. 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.
  4. Harry Hill and Lee Nelson on in the last hour. Both massive WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO's, in my opinion!
  5. 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!
  6. GMTV with Fiona Phillips and Ben Shepherd. WHOOOOOOOOOOOO!
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. During that chat, I seem to remember Chris saying someone on Radio 1 was nicking features that they weren't happy about and the only feature I could think of was the rubbish version of Bangers on the breakfast show.
  10. Scott has just announced that he is playing Innuendo Bingo tomorrow but Conor Maynard... WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
  11. I would like to see The Big Weekend come to Aberdeen or the surrounding area this year (not just because I live here!). Aberdeen has taken a massive battering with the downturn in the oil and gas sector resulting in thousands of jobs being lost and the local economy going down the drain. Also, we had a festival here last year that Example, Katy B and Melissa Steel, all favourites on the R1 playlist performed at and it was a great success.
  12. This is such an excellent idea! Jameela Jamil. WHOOOooooOooooooOoo!
  13. It just so happens that Christmas Day falls on a Sunday this year - a day that Scott, Chris and Greg are not heard on R1 and that will be why Dev is doing it. Although, I do find it a strange that Scott and Chris don't appear on the radio until the Wednesday - I would have thought they would be back on air on the Monday. Dev is certainly seems to be Radio 1's 'go to guy' for cover and he is getting a lot of it again this Christmas! Does anyone else remember early last year, Dev was on the radio every day for three weeks straight? I seem to remember him covering Greg in addition to his weekend show and Phil Taggart was covering Huw who was on holiday but called in sick so Dev stepped up, doing 4pm-7pm and then back on for the 10pm-1am show.
  14. Mark Lockett (former Assistant Producer on the show when Will was the main Producer) steps up to be the main producer. Tom Whiter moves from Clara's show to AP on Scott's show. I must say that I like Tom. He was part of Greg's 'G at the Park' he did at the BBC Scotland HQ in Glasgow a few years back before T in the Park. Also, Jenny from Greg's show has moved to Alice Levine's show.
  15. I liked 'Dear Scott' with the Posh Radio 4 Lady. Whatever happened to that? I think it was just quietly dropped. I agree with the above posts regarding Real or No Real - it is one of the best feature that Scott has done. Especially when Greg or Charlie plays, the off-topic stories that get shared are comedy gold! With regards to Beccy, I think she has left Radio 1 and is focussing on BBC projects elsewhere. Her Twitter bio mentions she does 'radio and strategy and stuff for the BBC' and I agree, she is still very much missed on the show.
