  1. Past hour
  2. Today
  3. I am very interested in how the situation will continue
  4. As talks about Liscence fee price freeze as the government look to a new model of how the BBC is funded. Will see the politics of the BBC funding radio as budget cuts are looking possible at the same time Newsbeat and Asian Network moving to Birmingham and 6 Music and Radio 3 moving all their programming, production and management to Salford. Creating this as a general conversation threads sharing any news and views as this develops and impacts BBC Radio and BBC Sound and how commercial radio sector responds
  5. Katie in for Vick on Thursday.
  6. Last week
  7. Vick is off so it'll be Jordan & Katie from Wednesday 2nd to Thursday 10th February.
  8. Yes maybe I think Matt will be off for a few weeks at least
  9. Odd as the original schedule had both Matt & Mollie, so I wonder if they’ve decided to keep Mollie off till they can be reunited?
  10. Molllie king been off for ages now seems odd
  11. And Katie sits in for Matt & Mollie on Friday and Saturday.
  12. Earlier
  13. Arielle Free sits in for Matt & Mollie next Sunday.
  14. @NathanS see the possibility of Fleur East’s Breakfast show going national and bit of a rebuff on Bauer’s national outreach. I could see them pushing more money into marketing and promotion of their stations with nation wide advertisements on billboard busses and television wonder if like Global and BBC will try to develop an app or marketing strategy that links its radio names and brands more closely feel the Global app has helped people to tune in to other stations they might not and developed sister stations like LBC News and Capital and Heart Dance. Think Bauer developed good sister stations like Kiss with Kisstory and Kiss Fresh and the Absolute’s so many. Think the stations over at the Bauer stations lack being able to find radio content that is tailored to them. I overall think even if the BBC Sounds apps dont have the visual streams and multi media content links other radio apps have the tailored recommend section that is personalised for individual listener and have different moods that can find or listening content from all BBC Radio outlets very cohesive. I think it will be time that Bauer could end up playing catch up and other media outlets in the news media sector have yet to tap. I could see Hits and should maybe get one or two big names from the radio industry and needs to be able to rival Radio 1, Capital and Heart better. Feel Greatest Hits Radio may end up trying to pouch one or two additional names that are popular ‘celeb radio stars’ maybe get some adult contemporary tracks on presenter and some recent tracks of listener favourites like Diana Ross, Elton John, Rod Stewart. Ideally i have Absolute Radio and Radio X develop some content that rivals specialist content of music on BBC surprised if Shaun Keaveny either returns to XFM rebranded as Radio X or Absolute having more new cutting edge experimental shows that play more nieche genres and break new artists is needed to keep competition exciting. Wonder if could see more offerings in the talk radio sector a Bauer magazine type radio station or real podcast push if develop a cohesive ‘planet Radio’ app may be opportunity to offer a range of original podcasts relating to magazines they own and radio stations. Could we see another newspaper or media outlet join in the talk radio wave outlet that owns Telegraph and Spectator, The Guardian could join in. But wonder if it will be the case if could have credible talk radio offerings that do non music comedy and entertainment or having Scotland or Wales wide commercial independent national stations like LBC, LBC News and Times Radio. I mean think only maybe new things may see launch for BBC Radio 1 just minor changes of new playlist shows and podcasts of the bits overnight. Radio Paul Gamboccini could leave. But I see the case that more or less the departures will be at BBC from BBC News department

  16. I see Pete Tong tho should have some rest sort of show on Radio 2 as feel Fridays could do without being exclusively 80s/90s. He could still somehow have bit more time left as he’s untouchable. Annie is an exception to any convention about any longevity at Radio 1 her career is lasted decades longer at Radio 1 than any one expected defying the odds think as long as she can speak and mentally able to do the job she could do it for the rest of her living days how long they maybe. She launched an initiative for new female and nonbinary dj talent on radio 1 so that shows he commitment to Continue. I don’t think she’d retire. Neither would Tony Blackburn for that matter. Matt could see maybe one of the next ones to go next he’s one I could see doing stand in presenting on stations like Radio 2 or virgin Radio maybe he could be type that would do podcasts books develop tv shows as he has done list of stuff I think when leaves inf he could end up devoting time between family but taking on some presenting duties
  17. Radio 1 if anyones likely to leave this year I think it’ll be Matt Edmondson or Annie Nightingale to retire - possibly Pete Tong. I did think Adele but I reckon she’ll hang on another year as if she’s still having check ups less likely to want to start a new role
  18. I can't see any massive change at Radio 1 or 1xtra unless anyone walks. Major changes have happened on both stations in recent months so i think things will be relatively quiet. Radio 2 will mostly stay the same I reckon, apart from Jeremy Vine leaving later in the year, with the replacement broadcasting from Salford. We'll hear more from Vernon Kay and Edith Bowman as regular cover throughout the year, and Scott will continue to regularly cover Ken Bruce's show. I was going to say Bauer would announce a big change to their Hits Radio schedule, but that has been announced in recent days. I can see them finally rebranding the locally named stations (such as Free Radio) as 'Hits'. I can also see them moving local shows to drive, with Fleur East's Breakfast show going national. With the big additions of Simon Mayo and Jackie Brambles... It wouldn't surprise me if a big (not necessarily a Celeb name) radio name to took over the breakfast slot.
  19. Wow! What a blast from the past! Can't believe it was so long ago.
  20. Here you go: But to be fair, pretty standard tech in any kind of professional environment.
  21. Engaged and graduated from university! It makes me feel very old to think he was just five when he was giving Scott football advice for the World Cup!
  22. I think given contract Friday cover makes sense for Jordan and Vick to cover then. Fair point Scott covering for Chris Moyles when he did drive I think since I think he first started covering for Zoe and Sara on breakfast that’s probably felt Scott is safe hand to do breakfast. For any of the weekly daytime presenters I found Scott ended up doing the most cover did Chart few times when on Sunday and covered for Dan and Phil.
  23. Perhaps, but that's what Scott used to do on drivetime, and as you say they covered for Matt and Mollie on Friday breakfast days after their show launched.
  24. You never quite see especially with BBC a drive presenter covering breakfast not really ever in commercial. I think Vick and Jordan may only ever cover Fridays. I think it’s because drive is quite a peak or big show in itself. They would be the favourites to take on breakfast tho
  25. Nice to have Scott and Chris on breakfast, interesting they chose them rather than Vick and Jordan, I guess perhaps they answered the call sooner! The on-air idents make it sound like they've not been away from breakfast as long as they have!
  26. Oh that’s cool @Jono. Interesting there’s a different one for R1/1Xtra Simulcasting too… plus R2, which we’ve seen interviews done there but odd as they have their own building!
  27. I think maybe if could create a once a week request show or feature. I would definately since Radio 1 isnt a nostalgia driven station get rid as its a rebrand of the shows that went out on weekend surronding radio 1’s 50th birthday. I do feel that having a Friday saturday driven playlist of having upbeat energetic dance, pop, rap and rock new and old for that feeling such things better subtle i find. Sunday think a subtle chilled playlist new and old woven in would be more preferable with music based features that link in. With the more mainstream dance i think maybe ensure that there is rotation of tracks on playlist i do think unless if got more newer tracks to champion try to switch some out on the long playlist when new verity enters or extending the playlist numbers. I mean no issue really when MistaJam did it but think that style and format of dance anthems is now missing the bespoke elements of new and cutting edge dance or offering a taster of the network of dance shows that it should
  28. The visualisation button on Jack's Instagram story seems fun. Never knew they changed studio branding that way!
  29. I wouldn't say get rid of "Anthems" entirely. There is a scope to hear older tracks on occasion (although I wish they were played into the system individually so we could hear them in full instead of being butchered up, cut short and mixed). I'd get rid of the Friday slot tbf, Saturday and Sunday would be adequate, and let Greg do something with the last half hour at the end of the week. Although it sounds a bit jarring at 3pm... Party Anthems (dunno why they renamed it from Dance Anthems) does have a place as it's not just a generic anthems show. It's always showcased the more mainstream side of dance that does deserve airplay that don't fit in with what Sarah Story and Pete Tong plays. It did suit better at 6pm after Newsbeat on a Friday though... As it bridged the gap between daytime and the specialist Friday night dance stuff. Dance Anthems worked well under the format created when Mistajam hosted, An hour of classics, an hour or current, and the last hour showcasing future artists and dance music.
