    Fix ONE thing

    OMG I'd almost managed to block that from my memory. Can never think of another time R1 got things SO badly wrong... But yeah, let's not talk about that again ?

    Well, apart from the 'Prince Philip' interlude - but let's not rake over that ground again ,,,

    Completely agree with you that Radio 1 is always significantly better than the likes of Capital. And I'm not realistically expecting a return to how things were 20 years ago! But I still think the balance has tipped a bit too far away from the longer links... As proven here though, clearly some will think differently ? Aaron's point is excellent through - by design, RMC's move to mornings will improve the entertainment balance, so my 'one thing to fix' is, I guess, already being done!!

    Yes and think it’s in the debate whether people see it as ‘impartial’ kinds of feeds into the politics of broadcasting it’s like when think of it when the Queen passes and ‘London Bridge Falls Down’ so to say that protocol will be enacted beyond BBC and British institutions like New Zealand wouldn’t be allowed to play any songs by Queen and their flags fly at half masts etc. Think it think goes into the constitutional politics and the politics of whether the BBC or Media is in broadcast bias for or against. Think the BBC obit mode for BBC Defunders, Anti monarchist Republicans, monarchists think aired views and things got bit heated because abonromal moments spark strong reaction. Well on the day of course listeners weren’t as happy to have simulcasts and change of playlist but what it did. Was the words of the top brass the Director General and people who in charge of the board of the BBC made the calls assume so the Radio 1 and Pop Team Lorna nor Aled I’d imagine had say over any decisions just told to broadcast the audio news output then go to the somber emergency playlist. Think it’s definately question in public interest but much of the general protocol can imagine are done for this stuff with Ofcom and under the BBC charter that the government and Parliament sign of and department of media has to deal with.

  5. Good for joint up thinking. Feel some sort of in concert on 6 music would work as feel of something that feels like the 6 music listener would enjoy. I’d think that with Craig Charles being twice on Saturday first 3 hours on 6M then 2 more hours on 2 that there’s space to amplify different genres in the sechedule

    Fix ONE thing

    I love the look of the daytime schedule from September - probably the strongest it has ever been, but the one thing that I would fix if I was in charge is the absolute mess that it looks like nighttimes will become. I can’t understand why there doesn’t look to be any particular content between midnight and 4am each day, and also why the specialist shows are being reduced to an hour. It just doesn’t make any sense to me. I would have implemented a schedule like this - keeping Future Sounds starting at 7pm: 7-9 Future Sounds with Clara Amfo 9-11 Replacement for RMC 11-1 Future Artists with Jack Saunders 1-3 Specialist 3-4 R1 Dance/ Relax 4-7 Early Breakfast Just makes it a lot neater by mainly extending shows again!
