    Nick Grimshaw's new show

    I think this is subjective really. I'm really enjoying Grimmy on 4-7 at the moment (even if it seems im the only one :D) Grim suits this time slot nicely I think, and I like the warmth that the show has. Maybe a little too much music, but I love the Annie Mac chats and the Honesty Game. Nick works best when he's on air with another presenter, a bit like Alice Levine does. You could say its an 'Unpopular Opinion' (i'll leave) but I'm not warming to Greg on breakfast yet. I liked the Pass the Pasty and first week stuff but since then its seemed a bit empty, and the features it does have doesn't live up to his drivetime stuff like Rage and What's My Age Again (unpopular opinions is a bit basic and the updated shouldn't be news falls flat with Roisin, Game of Phones is only really interesting for those taking part). Plus, all of the 'this is what's been happening overnight' was literally what Grimmy was doing when he presented the show, just presented in a different way to suit a wider audience, making the show feel less personal. I really want to warm to it, as I was so excited on the first day because it sounded like a jam-packed breakfast show like in the CM days what made it a must-listen, and I really like the imaging, but unlike the Chris Moyles Show or Grimmy's show, I'm not too fussed when I have to turn off at 9 for work If there is literally anyone else who agrees with me let me know lol
  2. My overall review Positives - CONTENT. Although I prefer Scott and Chris’ humour , Greg’s breakfast show now matches the content of their show (and I expect that will continue) which is amazing to have back on the flagship show. Imaging - i love the branding! At times a little commercial, but its nice to have a refresh. I dont think those smoothly mixed ‘coming up’ parts will last though Improvements - Music - not enough new stuff, would prefer less recurrents. They got the balance of songs right, I’m just hoping that it was just Greg’s song choices and it was a one off for today. - Ten Minute Takeover - i can’t believe this has lasted through 3 shows now. Its such a bland, nothingy feature, it NEEDS TO GO! For a first show though it was clear it was well planned and it made me want to keep listening, even through a terrible signal on holiday. Very impressed!!
  3. They really are doing the most to kick off this first show I’m cautious the overall quality of the show will go down a little as the show goes on content-wise (those pre-mixed ‘songs on the way’ surely won’t last)

    Radio 1 Playlist

    That’s probably just to reflect what is still doing well in the charts nowadays. 5/6 years ago there was a much faster-moving chart making room for more singles. Now it takes a longer time for songs to make it to the higher end of the top 40, meaning a lot of songs, like Jackie Chan at the moment, stay in the playlist purely because there isn’t a song that’s more popular to replace it.
  5. Agreed. Its a bit too... dark
  6. Apologies OohErr, i think i got a bit excited earlier and wasn’t even considering it a spoiler! It wasnt even a sung theme so maybe I am just jet lagged I’ve posted a better description of the ‘sung theme’ here, so that it isn’t spoiled for those who are waiting until Monday.
  7. For those that missed the original, all I can explain the imaging as is it had a sung theme, which sounded like it could be quite chanty. They had a tagline like 'The one to wake up with' or something
  8. All of this sounds good to me apart from the Ten Minute Takeover - i think that just be binned off tbh

    When will Scott's time be up?

    I think that if there are suitable replacements in 2020, thats when Scott might leave the afternoon show. I never believed for one second he would leave in 2015, because his show was and still is the best on the daytime schedule. Its clear they are trying a lot of duos out but they’re not really sticking. This could be the early steps of finding Scott’s replacement, or not at all! I can see Scott keeping the Chart for maybe a a year or two more after he leaves afternoons while he transitions to Radio 2. Just a prediction though - I’d like Scott to stay on Radio 1 for many more....
  10. The 20th?!?! I am on holiday can’t be just me who thinks its a ridiculous time to start. September just makes sense - more listeners as most are back from holiday, ties-in with Grimmy’s first show, PLUS allows them to build up hype for the show over those extra two weeks. This all feels rushed and unexpected and I think I’d still be confused even if I wasn’t on holiday
  11. To be fair, I’m glad thats going with him, as long as its not every hour that is! I’m also glad its not going to get in the way of Greg’s show. This show is making me more certain that it wasn’t Grimmy’s choice to leave breakfast. Some of the things he is saying are interesting...

    Schedule Changes

    It would appear WB 20th Aug that Scott and Chris are on Breakfast again (although the website still says Grimmy ) and Jordan will be covering their show. Jordan’s also doing weekend breakfast on 19th, with Maya covering his normal show.

    Is Chris Smith leaving Newsbeat?

    Interesting. I get a weird feeling that it could be his final Newsbeat (as host) but hope that’s not the case! Also, doesn’t he usually not present Fridays? So it seems like it could be a ‘special’ of some kind
  14. I’m here too! Liking the music but apart from that the show doesn’t seem too different to any other atm
  15. From my POV, I’ve always liked Grimmy on breakfast and as a presenter (but then I’ve been his typical target audience for his reign on breakfast haha). But I think we all know the show has gone downhill since the original breakfast team started to leave in 2015, and it went from a show I had to listen to, to a show which I listened to when I had the chance, which is a shame - its like it became set up for failure with the lack of features and content compared to your typical breakfast show
