So what are we all making of it so far?

There's a load of voices we haven't been introduced to, the music is very much more 1Xtra than Radio 1 (it's Charlie Sloth, I don't know what I was expecting - Taylor Swift?). 

So far it seems a bit naff and contrived. 

EDIT 21:42: a lot naff and contrived. And all the music sounds the same.

I like the zoo format, the randomness and the sense of not knowing what'll happen next. Seems like a really good idea for a show but the music is putting me off a bit. The show is meant to be R1 AND 1Xtra, I know rap and grime is huge right now but I think the music needs to be more of a hybrid between the two stations. He's playing a lot of stuff that would be on the 1Xtra daytime playlist- it's a nighttime show so I wouldn't mind more specialist nighttime music (a mix of what Annie, Toddla T, Mistajam, Benji B are playing etc).

Any thoughts on the show after a few months? 

I think it’s very different to anything else on the radio at the moment which is good. I also love the unprecedentedly about the whole thing. I do feel it is a bit too 1xtra though. But I do enjoy listening to it.

I enjoy it occasionally but the music isn't quite my thing. The late night games and shenanigans have been missing from R1 since The Matt Edmonsdon Show finished it's Wednesday night run. I wonder if Matt would work well as a cover host - he suits a format of silly games and comedy.
