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.

I know with Scott's show it shows Matt's picture but on the car display it says "Matt is in for Scott to entertain the nation"

I agree, it’s especially annoying when a Will Best situation happens, when he first started covering Adele, the show was labelled Adele Roberts - Will Best sits in 

But then on the most recent cover he did, he had his own name, and not Adele Roberts, at least show some consistency Radio 1, But then that’s typical of R1 at the moment, but that’s for another thread

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.

Least this was consistent but I still think it has been done wrong. 

It should be.....

 

Dev & Alice

Arielle and Will sit in.

 

Radio 1's Greatest Hits

with Cel Spellman

 

Jordan North

Cel sits in for Jordan

 

Matt & Mollie

Jordan Sits in for Matt & Mollie. 

 

 

I just then thing when they are doing show features like "Get Your Clips Out" or "Best New Pop" the iPlayer version goes into the right show category so people can find it.

Lots of slight name changes to the shows:

The Radio 1 Takeover

Radio 1's Future Sounds with Annie Mac

Radio 1's Hype Chart with Phil Taggart

Annie Nightingale Presents...

Radio 1's Soundsystem with Toddla T

Annie Mac on Friday

 

Also Radio 1 and 1Xtra's Stories appears to be coming back onto the air in place of 'The Radio 1 Takeover' in a couple of weeks.

Annie’s Friday show is now ‘Radio 1’s Dance Party with Annie Mac’. 

I guess this all to make the shows stand out on the BBC Sounds app which has programmes and podcasts from across the BBC.

Surprised Radio 1 Breakfast didn’t get the same treatment - Radio 1’s Breakfast Show maybe.

Very interesting changes.

Yes I thought breakfast was going to be named in that way. 

Also surprises me they haven't added "Weekend Breakfast" back to "Dev & Alice" yet now they have finished drive time. 

Ultimately I think they are trying to create "Shows" rather then just the presenter/personality (as this is what happens on commercial - Capital is the same all the time just with different presenters). They want Radio 1 to have "shows" that people specifically choose to listen too.

It's not entirely the same thing but it really annoys me how the breakfast show starts on the iPlayer at 6:33 and not 6:30. It means the beginning is cut off if the news runs short, and whenever you skip forward or back you have to do the +/-3mins calculation every time.
