  1. There is definitely a lack of hype this year - I don't understand why they'd release the location and three acts, then basically forget about it for two months!
  2. This has been done before (Christmas last year), but doubt the OCC would agree to it, they want a prime time slot; also they'd have to turn the data around fast, and R1 would have to turn it around even faster to get it on air and produced to a decent standard! Although from our perspective it makes some sense, I can't see R1 or OCC ever going for it.
  3. Disagree here, we were behind the rest of the world with the chart - with songs being released on Fridays/Saturdays, meaning they'd be part of the UK chart on the Sunday yet would place low as only being around for a few hours, thus not reaching their possible potential. Moving the chart to a Friday is better for artists, and allows for a more accurate representation of their album sales in the chart - it therefore makes it more interesting for the listeners too. I do agree however that it was better for programming when it was on a Sunday, and it's definitely a shame to have lost Greg's Friday show; the chart is bigger than Radio 1 however, and they have to move for the chart and the music industry, not the other way round.
  4. Hear hear, it was me that logged in and removed it as vandalism, the thing is full of inaccuracies on R1 pages, loads of people calling Matt Edmonson a moth ffs
  5. Just the stuff about Trump, made one or two Brexit references, and that heartfelt insta post re refugees - I've already seen those on the right jumping up and down because the BBC is supposed to be unbiased. Personally I think he's very funny and would be very good at political satire, but I know the bosses wouldn't like it!
  6. I think maybe every time he gets to 30/20/10 he should go over the previous 10, sometimes it's very hard to keep track of where things are otherwise Sent from my iPhone using the mobile app
  7. It does feel a bit like Greg has been acting as if he has nothing to loose atm. There have been a few times when he's said things on air or posted stuff on social media and I've though "the BBC aren't gonna like that". I really hope he's not going anywhere (other than R1 Breakfast ASAP obviously) Sent from my iPhone using the mobile app
  8. It's on Radio 1's main wiki page too... investigating but I assume it's just vandaism
  9. 27th and 28th May 2017 in Hull Confirmed acts: Little Mix, Stomrzy, and Kings of Leon
  10. Will be announced on Monday at 8am
  11. Really? The imaging producers weren't in the same building!?
  12. "Listen from 4, watch from 6" WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooooo!
  13. Marathon show was 16th, 17th and 18th of March 2011
  14. A few questions about this. First of all how do they clean songs? Somehow it seems that the vocal track is isolated and cut out while the music still plays. Do they have special versions of songs given to them where they can see each instrument and mute or mix as appropriate or is there an easier way of doing it. Second, how do they decide what standards to use, like what words aren't acceptable for air. 'Sexual' being turned to 'Sensual' seems petty when other radio stations use the original, and R1 have no problem with blasting the word 'bitch' out on that Pink! song - so is there a way of determining what's fit? Finally, on the 10 minute takeover, Ian often talks about songs being in the wrong place on the system... Does this mean they play explicit versions of songs after watershed and keep the files in a separate system, or is that just a case of other songs never having been played and hence not yet having approval for air?
  15. The easy way to ALWAYS know: Normal: "It's 2:30 on BBC Radio 1, let's get the news with Chris Smith" Pre-record: "It's 2:30 on BBC Radio 1, and it's time for the news with the Newsbeat team" They never ever say the newsreader's name. Also the bulletin will be two minutes long to the second.
