    Hello everyone Aled here, Head of Programmes at Radio 1. Thank you for all your passion for Scott, Chris and Radio 1 - the station’s success relies on fans like yourselves caring about radio and what we do and all of us at Radio 1 really appreciate it. Don't worry - I’m not planning on hanging around and cramping your style, I’m trying to get hold of Jono. I’ve used the ‘Contact us’ section but I’ve heard nothing yet, if someone on the board has his contact please ask him to email me. (It’s nothing bad!) Keep up the amazing work everyone, be as critical as you like, I’m sure Scott appreciates it. Thanks, Aled.

  3. Actual LOL at Jordan and Scott just now: Jordan: oh god, they're gonna send me back to local radio - oh wait, all the jobs have gone. Scott: it's all coming from London now babes, Rock FM's not on anymore.

  5. This has been annoying me- one of the great things about RONR is the banter between Scott, Chris and the DJ and the flow of the game. It has the potential to be one of the funniest things on Radio 1 when they're on top form and the facts are funny. Stopping after 1 fact to play a song we've heard countless times is pointless and ruins the flow. It's happened a few times where they've only done 2 facts. Such a shame, especially now that they have such a good line-up with Greg on Mondays, Charlie Sloth on Tuesdays, Alice on Thursdays and Cel on Friday. They all have the potential to be hilarious and have been great the last few weeks, just drop the song in the middle and go back to 4 facts!

  6. I can see him staying on daytimes for a good number of years more, why move him when he’s still at the top of his game? Great news he’s signed a new contract.

  7. At the risk of disappearing down this same rabbit hole as last time... There is - quite simply - no 'problem' to fix, and even more than that, improvements are being made all the time. The station has recently won a bunch of awards, there is more new talent than that has been for years, the presenter roster is diverse and inclusive.... Of course yes you could put MORE new talent on, or MORE diversity (e.g. Asian voices), but that's missing the point. The goal of equality should be to ensure everyone gets a fair go, and is not discriminated against. Clearly that has been happening at the station for a good while, and there is no need to 'force-fit' any further such changes - we can just let that happen naturally now as talent evolves and grows. It's also critical to keep a good focus on listener numbers, just as they are doing. It's idealistic to say that that doesn't matter and the station should push the boundaries further in daytime - quite simply without the strong figures, the station would be doomed. If anyone thinks the station sounds similar to commercial rivals in daytime, they really need to reconsider that view!!! R1 Dance / Relax are low-cost add-ons that will attract a few more people to the station, and they do offer a commercial-free option that is pretty unique. All in all Aled is doing a fantastic job, the station has rarely sounded better and has never had such a forward-looking presenter strategy!

  8. It's a bit sad knowing that this is the last ever time Alice will be on R1. She's always been one of my favourite presenters and listening to her show has always manged to put a smile on my face and often had me laughing out loud. Best of luck to her in whatever she does next.

    Hello New Members!

    Hi everyone! My name is Isaac and I’m currently a Computer Science student. I am also a massive radio geek as well – I’ve been listening to Radio 1 now for 6 years and to The Official Chart for nearly 6 and a half years. I’ve been a long time lurker on this forum (5 years I think!) and I’ve loved reading the comments and posts about Radio 1 ever since I found this. I’ve always wanted to join in the fun with comments and posts of my own but I’ve either delayed putting it off or been too shy to make a move. Hopefully, with everything strange going on, now is the right time. I look forward to getting more involved with the forum during times of big discussion here, whatever happens to Radio 1. Maybe a new presenter might join. Maybe Scott Mills will do 9 years in the afternoons. Maybe Jordan North will get the primetime slot he deserves. But for now … thanks for having me!

    If she's good I'm willing to change my mind, but until proven otherwise can we refer to Maya Jama within the context of Scott's show as the homewrecker?

  11. Actually, I think Diane Abbott would be great on the chart - "and now a new entry at number 72, which means it's the biggest selling single in the UK this week, it's Liar Liar. I'll play you the number 23 after that, and we'll run down the top 10-36". The Official Chart with Diane Abbott - every Goosday from 4pm-76:30.

  12. I think 275k is pretty amazing for 24 hours! The Gregathlon got a million but that was over a week so 5 days, it was all in daytime, got heavy promotion & regular updates on all the daytime main shows and was more of an "achievement" thing. Scott & Chris only had 6 and a half hours of primetime R1 really (Drive on Tuesday when it was only starting so the hype wasn't there yet and it hadn't hit its stride plus breakfast on Wednesday). A lot of it was evening, overnight, mid-morning, afternoon- hardly peak time. What an amazing 24 hours of radio though- the Non-Innuendo Bingo was possibly one of my favourite ever Mills moments (so hilarious), the Chris Stark roast, Sex Hour, Charlie Sloth Fat Jokes all brilliant and it really got going with Matt Edmondson, Alice Levine, Nick Grimshaw and Greg James there from about 10pm-4am. That was just the Lolathon and Radio 1 at its best and the jokes got much filthier! Only criticisms: they could've booked slightly better/bigger celebrities to come in- they got Ricky Gervais, Russell Brand etc but there could've been more big names maybe? Also- the music got really boring after a while. They must've played Lorde and Kings of Leon about 10 times each. Best bits were Ten Minute Takeover, Grimmy's picks (like Kaytranada, Florence & The XX etc- sounded amazing on late night radio and were great throwbacks to his time doing that show), Mistajam had some good ones, Workout Wednesday on Adele's slot: there should've been more of that and more variety- maybe some older tracks and ones Radio 1 hasn't played in a while. The playlist just got quite repetitive. Brilliant show, great job by Scott & Chris, hilarious, fantastic cause and loads of money raised! *hand clap emoji*

  13. It doesn't help that they now shorten some songs so they can squeeze in even more of the 'popular hits'. And they've definitely upped the music quotas (again), Scott has to play a song in the middle of Real or No Real now and it's been cut down to 3 facts instead of 4. Today there was only 2 facts because he spoke to Greg for too long - Greg goes "I feel short changed, isn't there normally 3?" to which Scott responded "yes but I've got to play the hits". Sounds like they've definitely been told to play more songs / not drop them.

  15. As we head into 2022, just my few thoughts on the new line up. In short: it's fantastic. I don't think there have ever been more shows on Radio 1 that I actively want to listen/catch-up with. Vick & Jordan are really growing into the drive slot. Sadly it just shows how poor Grimmy's show was when you compare just how much speech/content/fun they manage to squeeze into the show. There's plenty of different weekly features, they've got the daily staple in the 'Something Songs' & the 'talkers' always feel quite natural and generate some good stories. Basically they move the show on every 15/30 minutes & the hard work of the production team really does shine through. It's a shame it doesn't have a Scott Mills Daily style podcast to make catching up easier. I'm growing to like the pairing even more - sometimes I do feel Vick's humour doesn't quite work with Jordan. She kind of stunts his jokes and the way he plays up the whole Northern thing (but I guess I am comparing this to Jordan's podcast with William Hanson who just knows when to sit back and let Jordan be the fool). Katie is great cover too, she works with both Vick & Jordan so should keep the show sounding consistent all year round. RMC: I like them. I really enjoyed the evening show they did, because it was a little bit naughty & had plenty of games, even if the music wasn't always to my taste. Personally, it does feel like they've not translated this very well across to the new slot. I loved night night nonsense (a different game every Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday where Rickie/Melvin/Charlie each host one night and the other 2 play), if they did something similar (midday madness? 😂) it would really lift the whole show in my opinion. The daily features they have started aren't that strong: Random annoys me, Skive lounge is fun but maybe not as often & Melvin's Live Lounge guessing game just sticks out (why are they only doing it 1 day a week when they do LL rewinds every morning?). It just feels like they have been pinched a bit too much on talk time & when there is 3 of them on the show it feels a bit of a waste of talent. Of course it shouldn't be as fast paced/packed as Breakfast or Drive, but I think Scott & Chris show that the 'content filled' shows do work outside of peak. My biggest wish for 2022 is that they can inject a bit more fun into this show. Shout outs are fine till 11, then the Live Lounge, but some different good features every half hour after that would be great. Greg James and Scott & Chris deliver the 2 most consistently great shows on radio anywhere in the UK, in my opinion. Obviously not too much to say here because they weren't new for September 2022, but they have certainly kept up their game alongside the new additions to the line up. I hope neither change for a good while to come. Reinstating Greg on a Friday was probably one of the best decisions of the year. My one niggle with Breakfast is that I wish they made more of the 9:30 till 10:30 slot. I miss the daily madness of the 6:30 till 7am bit. Evenings - I don't listen to them as regularly (I used to catchup with RMC) but whenever I have heard Clara, Jack & Sian, it really does feel like they are in the perfect places on the schedule. They each love the slot they do & it shows. Just a shame we have lost an entertainment based evening show. Even if it was 10-12, so it could be naughty again with Powerdown at 12am. Weekends - Adele is a pro and very much suits the weekend Breakfast slot. It doesn't need to be as fast paced as weekdays & I think the past few years of having the 2 different duos on then just shows what a waste it can be, especially on a quiet morning like Sunday. I'm still not 100% sold on Dean, he is good but I did prefer Jordan in that slot. As has been mentioned here before, I wonder if it's too much too soon. Should he be on Early Breakfast with Arielle at the weekends? My personal choice would've been RMC on a Friday, Dean on a Sunday & someone new on a Saturday - gives a slot to another ex-Xmas/Friday EB presenter too. (I'd pick Sam & Danni. Saturday, so they are still free to cover life hacks on a Sunday). Matt & Mollie are sounding the best they ever have. The move back to weekends really did 'reset' their show and the stuff they do is on a par with the duos on Monday to Thursday. Some really great games and the 'talkers' they do are also generating some of the funniest stories too. Again, it's a shame they don't have a podcast. They could probably get away with a pretty beefy weekly one?

    Fix ONE thing

    My biggest problem is the nighttime schedule. From September I’d have: Monday-Wednesday have a full on chillest show from 22:00-0:00, not just a power down playlist. This would be hosted by Sian. Thursday night is the rock night, with The Indie Show followed by The Rock Show. Friday and Saturday night are all about dance. Danny and Sarah on both nights, with Pete on Friday and Jaguar on Saturday. on Sunday I’d have BBC Introducing followed by Sunday Chillout, hosted by Jess and then Sian.

  19. I'm a bit late to the party... but some very interesting points on both sides, i can certainly see valid points about change etc. However, i certainly think that Radio 1 are already in a good place... and that Aled has actually made brilliant progress in the short time he has been in the job. Radio in general has already had an issue in attracting younger listeners, i do not think the radical changes suggested would achieve that. You'd just put off your existing audience. They've always done well to place themselves where their audience are, especially on social media. They jumped straight onto Facebook and Twitter as they grew big, just like they've since done with Snapchat, Instagram and now TikTok, which is a vital way of engaging with their target audience.. and being present as a 'youth brand'. In terms of the linear radio side of things. Again, i cannot see what they cam do more 'radical' without scaring off a lot of listeners. The listener reaction often proves they're doing something right. Especially with their focus on mental health, one of the most important issues relating to the audience. Also, there has always been older listeners to Radio 1, a lot of them you'll never shake off... that's fine too. It was either Greg himself or Ben Cooper who said somewhere that if you strike a fine balance of not alienating the parents... their children will listen in too, who often stick with the station themselves as they get older. That's one of the reasons why putting Greg on breakfast was a good decision. In terms of sounding like their commercial rivals... i'd say R1 strike the balance well between serving their remit and appealing to a wider audience (which is what they've always done... listener figures will always play apart in justifying it's existance being funded by the licence payer). It's not just about the listeners and the DJ's.. i'd say they're doing a greater job than ever supporting the music industry and emerging talent... breaking them through as artists. There's more songs than ever breaking through to daytime... music you would not hear on similar CHR stations. Their specialist content is next to none... especially Jack Saunders show. As a CHR station, you'll always get the big hits you hear elsewhere.. R1 do well getting the right balance of hits and giving newer artists daytime exposure (although with it going more music heavy in recent years.. so has the repetition of tracks coming around again in a shorter space of time, although that's a minor gripe and still nowhere near as bad as most Global stations.)

  20. I used to work at a radio station (not R1, think smaller!) so I have a bit of an insight into this, although I'm sure it varies. Where I worked, around half of the presenters were staff and half were freelancers. Staff had to request leave and have it approved - freelancers could just say they were 'unavailable' but we would expect a reasonable amount of notice (apart from sickness) so that cover could be arranged. At R1 I believe all of their presenters are freelance. We would have a list of presenters who could cover each show - their suitability would be based on profile, experience, other work/commitments, so lots of factors. There would always be a preferred cover presenter for each show, and I think you can see that at R1 certain people tend to cover certain shows regularly - often they try to find someone 'similar' to cover. If more than one daytime presenter were off at the same time then you would also consider how the day 'sounded' in terms of different voices i.e. avoiding 3 male or 3 female presenters in a row, for example, so there was variety to the sound as you went through the day. Part of my job was to book presenters to cover leave but the overall decisions around who could cover each show was made by the editor - the manager in charge of the station. I would make the phone calls to arrange short notice cover, although at weekends there would always be a manager 'on call' who could make those decisions too. In my job, finding cover presenters was always fairly easy - it was much harder to cover a producer or newsreader who went off sick!

  22. Actually I think your theory could be one that’s correct - after all Scott is already doing drive on a Friday so why not add the other four His Dance anthems has been renamed too to Party Anthems What I think will happen is there will be major changes when the new controller for Radio 1&2 is announced (has it been?) if this is Ben Cooper as predicted maybe he’ll make major changes But yes I 100% agree Scott’s show sounds fresher than ever and it’s also been really good to hear him solo as well

    Radio 1 Snap Election

    It's actually quite an alright idea. So on the show today, the idea was raised by Chris to have a snap election at Radio 1 to let the listeners decide where each presenter should go on the radio schedule, (following the stuff that happened this morning). It's actually quite an intriguing point, and certainly something that could be discussed on these forums, because we've always chatted about who we personally want where in the schedule or who the big bosses at the BBC would like, but what do we think as a listener and nothing else? Aside from thinking whether Jordan North deserves to be higher up the schedule (which he does) and thinking that Clara's technical side of things isn't as good as Alice's, or whatever, what do we think the Radio 1 listeners would choose?

    Chris Start post-Scott

    If anyone wants to hear some early Chris Stark appearances, the first I could find was the 8th June 2010 podcast when he thought Scott was going to be called up to play for England in the World Cup, and a very funny one on 29th June 2010 where he was talking about spending an entire month's wages on World Cup merchandise.

  32. One thing that I found striking at Big Weekend last year was the queues of people who were talking about their favourite DJs. It was Scott's name that came up various times. I mean it's hard to say how much these people listen to Radio 1, but I think he remains the most recognisable name with young audiences. Now you could argue that's the strength of Scott's work, you could also argue Radio 1 has more to do to connect its audiences with the newer DJs.

  34. It wouldn't be the first time the Radio 1 bosses have done such a thing with their best presenter(s). Losing Scott would be a huge loss though, simply down to the fact that he's head & shoulders above anyone else there imo. As regards with Scott moving to Radio 2 in the near future, it can happen and I think will work even if he has to adapt a little. But by the time/if he goes R2, it'll have a different sound to now. I think pre 1980 music will feature a lot less, if at all during daytime hours. Look at it this way, Radio 2 is a changing station even more so than Radio 1. How many presenters during Scott's Radio 1 years (or slightly before) work on Radio 2 now? Chris Evans, Simon Mayo, Sara Cox, Dave Pearce, Mark Radcliffe, Jo Whiley etc. Plus one off shows. Not only that but I think some long standing presenters will be moving on from there over the next 5 years to make room. Radio 2 took a big controversial decision with cutting "Sounds of the 60's", wrong or right they are moving to a different age themselves. They are aiming to pull in people like me, from their late 20's who've long outgrown Radio 1 to people approaching 50 now. I gotta admit they are winning me over as well.

  38. I have to agree with you guys. I don't mind amount of music during Scott's and Greg's shows but in the first part of the day it's just unbearable. Clara's show has no content at all and the worst thing it just does not sound good unlike Capital or other commercial rivals. And the breakfast show sounds tired. In fact, I think that drivetime show sounds better than the breakfast one which is a shame and a main issue Radio 1 keep losing listeners IMO. On the other hand, I love weekend output. Dev's great so is Matt, Alice and Danny.

I agree, I think Annie's great but not right for that show, Jam is way better at Mon-Thur 7-9, Danny can go back to just saturdays cause he's a bit meh, and I'd like Annie to do more daytime stuff as she's a great presenter but way more suited to daytimes somewhere! Also, time for the rock show to bugger off so we can have Dan & Phil back!

  40. As I mentioned in the chatbox, Bauer stations are broadcasting the brits this year, between 7 and 11pm, I believe they may have snagged exclusive radio rights to it for the next few years. As I type this, Alice and Clara from R1 are on ITV2 doing the red carpet show, which I think is just pre recorded interviews and some montages. Update: Tried to listen to the networked Bauer show, gave up after 5 minutes, truly awful, even by Bauer standards

    The new chart style

    I actually like it the way it is. Sorry to say but the chart has become pretty much irrelevant for me and I suspect many others nowadays. It just doesn't have the same buzz or excitement it used to. I also think streaming being included has devalued the number 1- we've only had 2 number 1s in 3 months or something (Shape of You and Rockabye)- boring. Radio-wise, I miss Greg's normal Friday show. I'd much rather have Feet Up Friday back than listen to the chart. I also love Dance Anthems and tune in especially for that at 6- great show, sounds huge and is perfect for the weekend. That slot has traditionally been like that too (Ready for the Weekend and Floorfillers with Scott (whoooo)). I suggested it at the time and I'd favour it moving to Clara's slot, it gets nearly 3 hours like before but doesn't clog up one of the main personality shows. Greg's one of the best Chart presenters but I feel he's wasted doing it- Clara was good and a huge upgrade on Jameela in the time she did it on Sundays. I do miss the Reggie Yates Sunday 4pm days though if I'm honest- the chart belongs there and Reggie was perfect as a presenter (and Scott used to be the main cover which was always a nice surprise on a Sunday). Anyway, times have changed

  45. Well firstly, he doesn't work for BBC News so the need to be balanced isn't as important and the things he posts on social media are to try and make positive cases to his followers as well as being funny so can't see anything wrong with that. Not like he's slagging off Theresa May or being really political- it's his private account anyway. Secondly, I would put money on Greg not being the new Capital Breakfast host. I'd say it'll be Will Manning or Roman Kemp- two brilliant presenters Capital already have who would be perfect for the target audience and would fit in with George and Lilah. Greg's style is just SO different to Capital- his games, features, chats with Chris Smith, use of language and expression etc wouldn't go with the Capital style. He has so much freedom on Radio 1, gets to do other things like Children in Need, the Gregathlon and has been allowed to take the BT Sport cricket job (if he took Capital Breakfast, he'd have to quit the cricket job because most of it's in the middle of the night). And of course, he's probably next in line for the Radio 1 Breakfast Show. Really can't see it happening

    Phil Clifton?

    Seems unlikely, for several reasons. 1) He'd be an external appointment. Radio 1 tend not to bring in people from outside to host the breakfast show unless they're very well known, and even then, they haven't done so since the mid-nineties (Chris Evans and Zoe Ball being the two most recent, and even Zoe was paired up with Kevin Greening who was doing drive prior to the breakfast show). Phil is pretty much a non-entity, all he's done outside of X is a bit of stuff for Channel 4 and MTV, so why they'd pluck him out of obscurity for the Radio 1 Breakfast Show is beyond me. 2) He's 32. Enough said. 3) He's never done personality radio before. X probably let him show a bit of personality, but nothing close to the levels required for filling 17.5 hours a week. He's got no experience, so hiring him for that show would be a big risk (unless they were going for a more music breakfast show, but look how well that worked out during Grimshaw's tenure). 4) It's replacing like for like. Grimmy is a trendy hipster-like bloke from the north. Phil Clifton is a trendy hipster-like bloke from north. Chris Moyles even went as far as describing Phil Clifton as a "crap Grimmy" once. 5) The Wikipedia edit has very crude attention to detail. "He Left Radio x in December 2016 so he take over from Nick Grimshaw on The BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show. He will be Presenting the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show From April 2017." Seems more like a (very obscure) fraudulent edit than an accidental premature leak of inside information. Then again, Ben Cooper does have a tendency to make unexpected (read: poor) decisions, so who knows.

Radio 1 are a different ball game to commercial radio, which is seen with sexual being turned to sensual (but no idea where they source that kind of edit though) Most of the muted swear words are added by the promo companies and record labels, we have some email us for the community station I work at, they prove the original track and a clean radio edit, from what I can tell all these radio edits sound the same so if it's deemed ok by the music team they'll just use the version sent to them like we do.

    2016 Power Intros

    I'd agree with you there - power intros tend to make the playlist sound more repetitive, even if they're not. I think the first song at the TOH and BOH would suffice, then do manual segues into the second song. That's what they used to do with the 1tros (although I think back then the segues were premixed). Also, a great anorak tip: Dev's shows are always goldmines for idents and sweepers. He tends to play the new ones, and his segues are usually quite sloppy so there's a bit of a gap between the end of the ID and the start of the song - result: the latest clean jingles in full.

  50. The wooden panels of Radio 2 await him maybe? Although if you'd of told me in 2006 that Scott would still be on Radio 1 in 10 years time I wouldn't of been suprised. He continues to be the best on the daytime lineup, he deserves to stop on another 10 imo. He started alongside the likes of Chris Moyles, Mark & Lard, Simon Mayo, Clive Warren etc and is the only one left at Radio 1 who can turn his hand to anything. I mean thinking about different situations. If an event on the scale of 9/11 happened today could anyone on there apart from Scott be trusted to handle that properly on air...
