    How R1 Shows are titled

    Yes I agree. I think the consistency has been horrendous recently. Especially regarding cover DJs, I feel the BBC have allowed to many key people at R1 to have time off at once. It means we are getting random shows all the time.

    How R1 Shows are titled

    Whenever there is loads of cover on R1 I always find it proper confusing how they title the shows... Do you think the show should remain the same with "sits in" in the subtitle or do you think the cover DJs show title should be used: E.G: When Jordan covers Adele, should it be... Adele Roberts Jordan North Sits in OR Jordan North Jordan Sits in for Adele I always thought the first one made more sense if Jordan is doing Adele's features such as new music friday or best new pop because then it means that all of this falls into the same section on iPlayer in catch up. I don't know, R1 just seem to be all over the place with how they are titling stuff at the moment anyway.
  3. i think a "Going To Work" song would be pretty funny start for the first few weeks. Then they can ditch it like "Going Home Song". But think that would really set up the kind of show it will be.

    Radio 1 Podcasts

    Does anyone thing BBC Podcasts will ever be on Spotify? I always listen to Podcasts on there so find myself forgetting about the BBC ones every now and then purely because all my podcasts are in the same place (apart from BBC). Also, you cannot listen to BBC iPlayer Radio App with Sonos which is how I pretty much how I listen to everything. Just a hit inconvenient really. Would be nice for them to publish on Spotify as well as iTunes etc.
  5. really surprises me that Grimmy goes to DriveTime, not sure what that is going to be like. Breakfast with Greg is going to be really good though.

    Schedule Changes

    I thought they were reverting to playing the Top 40 in full? Not enough time to do that in 1hr45? Glad to see Dance Anthems staying though.

    The Matt Edmondson Show - Backing Music

    ahh interesting stuff. Thanks! just out of interest, how much do you think the BBC pay for a jingle package like this? Sure will!
  8. Hi, Been reading the blog for a while but never posted. Really interesting discussion so I thought I would join! Been listening to Matt for ages, love his style. Always hear this backing music on his show, really like the sound of it. Is it a song or is it something custom the BBC will have had made for them? Clip from todays show: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1poki1Xqe5ha8dka4YGLxnA_EHRY0pbGx/view?usp=sharing Thanks, James
