I mean with sometimes producing for new presenters and in general the winter Christmas to new year slot has always been sparse in new stuff I mean it would make sense to even do Best of the Live lounges from the year or some stuff with the breakfast or afternoon and drive presenters live pre recorded items or possibly playing out some of the best bits of year of daytime and linking that in. I could see Boxing Day could easily be more Radio 1 Relax orientated. Think it would be good for some specialist stuff to be some stuff from up and coming club and dance orientated Dance music presenters to focus on different underground and genres and speaking people from the indie introducing scene in Alternative specialists. Think it would be good if did different themes or anthems
The Newsbeat would like likely keep newsbeat so small detail to mention it. Asian Network debate and topical news programming has mainly been in the morning think is good to have some sort of staple on the schedule like Mid morning or later evening but 15:00-18:00 seems bit odd since it’s a drive slot. I know from Wiki that 1 Xtra over a decade ago had a similar thing in the late drive slot
My memory escapes me, but didn’t this come up with one of the guest on their 5Live show a few months back? I think they were talking about whether people in the same household could take on each other for it… interested to see if it does come back and how!
