This seems pretty sound. I like the idea of early breakfast being covered by a previous months Friday DJ to give them a further outing. Adele or Arielle for Clara is a must.
I doubt Jordan will do Breakfast for the simple fact he’s clearly the next in line for it? (Years down the line of course..) but Greg never covered Breakfast.
I’d like Jordan & Grimmy to swap full time. With RMC covering drive!
I would love an ask Aled chat, I wonder if he'd do a zoom meeting for an hour?
I had never thought that they had plans like that for Scott - he hasn't covered much Radio 2 since the summer? but yes, maybe the plan was to have him as the "main" R2 cover pre Covid
Cover wise i wouldn't complain if it went something like:
Early Breakfast: The Friday host who is on duty that week/previously on the Friday rotation or maybe Vick Hope
Breakfast: Scott & Chris or Jordan (i think it's time he depped on breakfast, he's more than capable and i'm sure much of the audience wouldn't complain!)
Mid Morning: Adele, Arielle or Katie as secondary dep
Drivetime: Split between Jordan or RMC.
Future Sounds: Jack Saunders
Weekend Breakfast & Mid morning cover could now be a way in to give the newer voices more airtime and get the audience used to them. Certain people (if anyone reads digitalspy) go on about 'new talent', this will probably be the best way to slowly transition the schedule in the coming years.
Dance Anthems will likely be left in Arielle's hands when Charlie's off.
I made similar comments the other day. I agree, mid mornings work best as a music based show, sandwiched between two feature/personality led shows. Adele, in my opinion is the best cover for Clara. She largely keeps the usual format, but adds in a few features from her usual show (when she was on early breakfast), it baffled me personally why they put them on daytime, then Adele on evenings.
RMC were brought in a few years ago to replace The 8th, and they suit that show. I can't see any benefit them moving to daytime full time anytime soon, or at all.
