  1. Schedule Changes

    So MistaJam announced this evening that he is not the only change to the Saturday Dance Anthems show. He revealed there will be a different theme each hour. Hour 1 will be classics, hour 2 will be current songs and hour 3 will be future and upcoming hits. I would swap the classics and current songs around but that sounds like a really interesting new era for the show. MistaJam will make it work!
  2. BBC Radio 1 OFCOM Changes

    So OFCOM have published their final version of the new operating licence for the BBC which also relates to BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra. Key points: One hour of news and two extended bulletins, one in peak time and regular updates during the weekend. (No change in other words) 40 new documentaries per year. (Presumably all of these during the new 3-4am slot) 45% of the music in daytime should be British acts, also 45% of the music in the daytime should be new music and the majority from British acts. 60 hours of specialist music is required. (I think this is the reason why some of night time scheduling has changed) 175 new sessions, live or pre-recorded within 3 months. The station plays a bigger range of music which takes into the account of the size of the playlist and amount of plays in daytime/nighttime. (Wonder if we could see some big changes to the way the playlist is done in the future?) It does 2 social action campaigns per year. (I quite like this one!) Will post my opinion about this in more detail soon.
  3. 50th Birthday Celebrations

    Schedule is out!
  4. 2016 Power Intros

    Another new bed played after I think 2:10pm.
  5. 2016 Power Intros

    Oooh Adele played a new ID at the start of the show today with the Where It Begins stuff in it again. I really am loving the work Wish Buddah, IMGR, Pure Jingles and Contraband Media are doing to the imaging with regular updates to the beds's and ID's. It's fresh and not too repetitive as well which makes it great to listen to. I think this is the best Imaging Radio 1 has had for years!
  6. BBC R1 Summer Mix 2017

    On The Sly are producing the imaging again this year.
  7. 2016 Power Intros

    Scott Mills played a new bed on his show today around 1:13pm. Would like to see new updates and the original lot are brilliant as it is. EDIT: Now he's played one of the new PURE Jingles bed's at 3:23pm.
  8. BBC R1 Summer Mix 2017

    Scott Mills mentioned today that the Summer Mixes are coming back again this year and that they have filmed a TV trailer for it. I wonder what they will be like this year,? I hope they don't end up doing 3 mixes per day like they did when they got to the Christmas Mixes and they literally made a mess of the repeats. EDIT: Radio advert confirms it starts 17th July from 9:45am.
  9. Schedule Re-Think is Imminent!

    Or she could be a replacement for Gemma Cairney at Newsbeat and crash the jingles in the news each update.
  10. Schedule Re-Think is Imminent!

    I would also put Leanne Wood at 19:00-21:00, R1 Takeover with Diane Abbott from 21:00-22:00 and Nigel Dodds from 22:00-01:00. Weekly Playlist to be picked by the Queen and Radio 1 to be controlled by the Daily Mail.
  11. 2016 Power Intros

    A bit disappointing that neither IMGR or Contraband Media could create any Power Intros for Big Weekend artists other than ones from the headliners, Katy Perry and Kings Of Leon this year. I heard a fair variety last year so it's a shame they didn't make an effort to do as much this year.
  12. Radio 1 Ramps

    Can I request these? Calvin Harris - Heatstroke Shawn Mendes - There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back Thanks! Great work on this by the way.
  13. 2016 Power Intros

    The article sort of suggests that it's for the old songs. DNCE 'Toothbrush' isn't that old though surely?
