More the future than the present at times!
I suppose we all remember thinking the future would be uncertain without Laura and Chappers and everyone involved came out on top. Scott got new team members, Laura became a radio boss and Chappers did more TV.
Why did Radio 1 make everyone think they'd died though 😂
This news put me in a sad mood. I had a suspicion that Chris having to sign a contract, to stay on the TPC podcast, with a commercial broadcaster might lead to a split eventually and I did always wonder if both would go together, but never expected it to come to this so soon. Going to this miss these two on R1, and more importantly the content.
Greg's show still feels likes it's pandering to kids of a pre-TikTok age, RM&C feels a bit too chaotic and V&J for me just isn't natural enough yet.
Hope Katie Thistleton gets the slot instead of Dean, but I feel instinctively the bosses will do the opposite.
Oh well. Times were good whilst they lasted.
I kind of hope for a former Radio 1 Scott Mills producer on the new show I kind of think it will be a new sound all together maybe watered down bits of 5 Live approach and maybe a lot of new ideas and features. Maybe theres appetite for something like Real or No Real or some of those quizzy features and stirring up the listeners feelings with Bombaleo on Radio 2
I’m rooting for Katie Thistleton it would be good to have a solo presenter doing it and between Arrielle Free or Katie Thistleton have good choices. As for 5 Live think Elis and John could end up filling the saturday morning show with news and sport chat. Chris is going to be missed maybe they may end up doing some tv stuff or some podcast projects together it would be nice if Chris Stark popped in on the show every now and then.
