    The Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw - whooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    How Long Have You Been Listening?

    It's been about 4 years exactly since I've been listening to Radio 1. I'm a 19-year old radio nerd from the U.S. and had been flipping through international stations on TuneIn when I first came across Grimmy on breakfast, which I thought was alright at the time but when Scott & Chris ended up covering I realized I was missing something great. I've listened to every Scott Mills Daily since then. I added Greg James' podcast as well and podcasts continue to be my typical method of consuming R1. When I do "tune" in live I've enjoyed Alice Levine, Jordan North, and Annie Mac when they're on. Matt Edmondson is pretty meh to me but I haven't heard him with Mollie to make a judgment there. Likewise, the breakfast show (1:30a-5a) and Clara Amfo (5-8) aren't on at good times to listen over here. I do appreciate Adele Roberts (11p-1:30a) who has provided a soundtrack to many a late-evening homework/study sesh. She's an underrated talent IMO. I'd probably listen a lot more if SiriusXM put Radio 1 back on over one of the duplicate top-40 stations they have. It would be a unique addition to their lineup.

    The Official Chart with Scott Mills

    It worked fine for me... https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0b4yxh3 Can't wait to hear Scott tomorrow!

    Schedule Changes

    Not exactly as he's off to Eurovision that week.
  5. Along with no mention across Scott's social media, the results page shows that Scott didn't run the Marathon. Adele Roberts finished in 3:30:38 , Dev in 4:30:56 , and Danny Howard in 5:41:16 .

    Friday is now the weekend

    Hmm... so much to unravel here! Scott gets the chart show (well deserved) and Grimmy gets reduced to four days a week (must be on the way out now). Also, why bother putting Maya Jama on Mills' show on Fridays just to split it up a few months later?
  7. Also hoping that Scott & Chris do a couple red button commentaries again like the last World Cup and Euros.

    Live Lounge Covers

    I wonder if there is some sort of sliding scale in play as well with better-known artists having more freedom with their cover choice? I'm sure the Radio 1 folks think that a well-known track or cover of one would have more YouTube views.

    New Weekend Schedule February 2018

    Funny thing that I was flipping through channels a few months ago and saw her on an NBC comedy "The Good Place", where she co-stars along with Kristen Bell and Ted Danson.

    New Weekend Schedule February 2018

    I haven't heard much of Maya Jama but I don't like that she's being wedged in with Scott & Chris on Fridays. Jordan North really got shafted just getting three hours on a Sunday. Also re: Alice, she will be over in the US & Canada for the My Dad Wrote A Porno tour from February 22nd to March 7th. P.S. Ugh - don't understand why the Greatest Hits show is staying on!

    What radio do you listen to?

    I'll have a bit of different perspective as a U.S. based listener. In no particular order... BBC Radio 1 - Mostly Mills and Greg James with Adele Roberts if I'm up past 11p. I do like Alice when she's in for Scott but rarely catch her show on the weekends. The Game 730 AM - mix of local and national sports talk and game broadcasts (particularly Mad Dog in the Afternoon & Ferrall on the Bench) 97.5 NOW - local Top-40 station, but not for more than an hour when songs start to loop 90.5 WKAR - local NPR/Public radio, but only for Morning Edition and All Things Considered since I can't put up with classical music for too long 870 AM - mostly BBC World Service (particularly Newshour and World Have Your Say) with some NPR and local stuff. I try to tune in for Al Martin's "Current Sports" if I'm off school and also their Spanish-language music/news program on weekend mornings. If nothing suits my fancy on regular radio I'll get on Pandora or Spotify or pop a CD in. There also an assortment of podcasts I listen to - the obvious ones (see Mills and James) plus these: ESPN Fantasy Focus (football and baseball) [3-5 weekly in-season, 2x per month off-season] Chips with everything ("digital culture" podcast from The Guardian) [1x weekly] Serial [1x during a season - 2nd season didn't capture my interest as much as the 1st] My Dad Wrote A Porno [1x weekly + 1x weekly "footnotes" during a season] FiveThirtyEight politics podcast [1x weekly, but was every weekday in the buildup to the U.S. election] Arsecast (Arsenal podcast) [2x weekly] Effectively Wild (baseball podcast) [3-4x weekly]
