    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.

    24 Hour LOLathon with Scott and Chris

    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.

    Greg was on with Matt Edmondson and Molly King just now and they were suggesting features, then at the end Matt goes "I've got one more... How about Car Park Catchphrase"?

    New show, new thread. It feels like Christmas eve! I'll be up at half-six tomorrow to listen, who's with me? Wonder who the guest is? (Also that's a great book I would highly recommend). I wonder whether they'll do what Moyles used to do and have the news at 6:26 so they can start with the pips at half past?

    Radio 1 Playlist

    For me, 10 years ago this playlist was what I was listening to when I started listening to radio 1! https://web.archive.org/web/20090109065423/http://www.bbc.co.uk:80/radio1/playlist/

    Been seeing a few quotes on Twitter today from a speech Greg gave at some European Radio Conference. To summarise, Greg really doubling down on the whole "the listeners are more interesting than me so I make it about them" thing. Honestly, I can't say I agree. If that's the case then anyone could be doing the show - the reason Greg does it is because listeners are interested in him and his stories. He never used to do that shtick in the afternoons - it was HIS show, so I don't know where the whole modesty thing comes from. It's almost like he's embarassed to be there. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy listener's stories when they're funny and weird like on Scott's show, but not when they're the main attraction. I DO want to hear banter between presenters and stories from their own lives, that's why I listen - I've built up that relationship with the presenter over the years. I'm really sad about how little Greg's breakfast show does for me, I'd wanted him to get the gig for years and I really wanted to like the show but whenever I listen I just get fed up with how safe it is. And I used to love his afternoon show with Chris Smith. Haven't listened for months, although with local breakfast shows on Capital ending I'm not sure where I'll end up. Danny Mylo on Pulse 1 in West Yorkshire does a good show. Maybe I'll come back to Greg at some point, but for now I've gone right off.

    24 Hour LOLathon with Scott and Chris

    In fairness her format is deliberately music based, but it sounds awful because she’s an awful radio presenter. If Scott did that format it’d sound slick and funny. Funny how not even on social media has Maya acnowlaged the Lolathon, I’m still conceived she doesn’t know it’s happening haha.

    24 Hour LOLathon with Scott and Chris

    This last hour and a half has been the best radio I think I’ve ever heard on Radio 1. It’s nice to see all the DJs being able to show their (rude) personalities. And Jordan has really really stood out tonight. A shame that’s greg won’t be on until the morning as I enjoyed him doing the rude bits last time!!

    Maya Jama (sigh)

    So, Maya She's on twice a week and has been for nearly a year now, but does anyone else just feel like she doesn't fit in to radio 1? She never seems part of the team or that she cares about her show, there's literally no mention of her on any other show unless they're taking the piss out of her, she never covers and still makes basic mistakes, does anyone else just feel like she doesn't fit in at the station? I'm surprised she hasn't been sacked yet to be honest Or does anyone have a very different opinion and want to talk me around?

    Yet more new presenters!

    After his first week I can say that Jack's show is my new favourite. It's on a bit late for me though, so I can only listen to it on iplayer next day, if they ever swap it with Charlie's, that'd be even better.

    Dev and Alice: interim drivetime

    I've been thinking about this a lot, and I think there's something in it. The thing Alice Levine lacks as a radio presenter is a bond with the audience. I can't put my finger on why - maybe it's the regular absences, maybe it's the sarcastic and slightly cutting sense of humour. But you never quite feel like she's talking to you in the same way you do with Greg, or Scott, or Dev, or Matt, or Grimmy. Weird. But sadly I think she's brought that over to the show with Dev - it now feels a bit more insular with him than when he's by himself. I'm not sure why - I like double acts and zoo formats in general. There's just something that doesn't feel quite right with her. I miss Dev's solo shows.

    Could they be in Denbigh? There was a school there that they did the show from for the pedal to the peaks challenge, plus it was mentioned on the show yesterday when Greg got it "muddled" with Tenby.

    Grimmy and Greg Hide and Seek

    Well, I'm also pro-school. The gong might have just been in the Music classroom, right? The thing is, it doesn't really narrow down the possibilities that much. There's plenty of teachers that listen to R1 and they'd be up for it too.

    This is so brilliant. Grimmy's now saying he's packed 6 T-Shirts for this. And they have sleeping bags with them.

    I'm not good with changes and all these features that Greg's going to bring back this week just make me quite weepy. I love listening to R1 in the afternoons, both Scott and Greg make all the woes of the day disappear with their kindness and silliness. I know that Breakfast Show is massive and Greg deserves doing it, but at the same time, can't help but feeling quite sad. I won't be able to listen to Greg everyday, as I am now. And not having Chris Smith 'with the news' on with Greg isn't helping at all. So it's all really bittersweet for me.

    For me, theres been loads of great radio- im either too young or i didn't even knew existed or possibly forgetten about The Chris Moyles Show - Obviously one of my all time fav radio shows. The relaxed format was just so different to anything i was used to. Same with Scott's Drivetime show.- I miss Chappers and Beccy and Laura. Chris is good as well. Ive been getting quite into a local radio show called "Hirsty's Daily Dose" Though i can only find clips or the odd podcast here or there. From what i have heard it sounded brilliant. Does anyone have any podcasts/shows they can send me? I'd really like to listen some more. I also miss both Dev and Matt's weekend shows(before greatest hits). They were brill. Honeslty both were worth waking up for. Not like him and Mollie who seem to be average. But i really do like Dev and Alice. The format is amazing they get on so well. They seem like a perfect match. What shows do you guys miss?

    It's funny you say that - literally this week, someone sent me a load of episodes of the Hirsty's Overdose podcast. They're all here (I wouldn't have used Telegram to host them but oh well): https://t.me/hirstysdailydose That show was legendary, like you I'm too young to have heard it when it was broadcast (I'm also not from Yorkshire). If you want to hear some breathtaking pre-Sachsgate radio, have a search on YouTube for "Danny Dumps". I'd love to hear more if anyone else has recordings. Another show from before my time I'm very keen on - Mark and Lard. And one from my time, The Matt Edmondson Show on Wednesday nights. I've never heard another show like it since.

    Chris is sounding so much smoother when presenting this now, it would be good to hear him present a regular show on his own one day. Hopefully this podcast is a permanent thing.

    Matt & Mollie

    Just starting this thread just to see what people's thoughts are on this duo? My first thoughts were WHAT? Matt deserves so much better than a co host he needs a weekday slot. Now I quite like the show Mollie seems to really enjoy what she's doing and doesn't seem to mind when Matt has a pop at her for doing something wrong. She's learning on the job like we all do. This has potential to be the best duo Radio 1 has seen since Colin & Edith. When I compare the show with Dev & Alice it's way better just been listen to those two this past week there is no spark or chemistry between them just feels like two good single talents have been shoved together for no reason? Thank you

    Matt & Mollie

    I did originally think it was a shame that Matt was given a co host as he was perfectly able on his own. But, as Mollie has been here a while, I’ve got to really like her. Her and Matt have very good chemistry and I really enjoy the content on their show! As much as I hope he doesn’t go any time soon, when Scott does leave or move, I think them or Jordan would be a very good replacement. I do actually quite like Dev and Alice on their weekend show. I don’t think they have great chemistry - but that awkwardness is what seems to work. I did think they were missing features on their drive time cover though. I do think it’s a massive shame that the natural double act, Matt and Alice never happened apart from a couple of shows. And I very much doubt it will ever happen again!

    Dev and Alice: interim drivetime

    Just wondered whether anyone had any thoughts on Dev and Alice's drivetime cover. It's not bad, but there's something about it that just doesn't feel quite right. I can't quite put my finger on it - it might be that the whole thing seems very pre-planned, in a way that Greg's show never did. Could do with a bit more spontaneity imo, and maybe a couple of regular features. Any other thoughts?

    I also think he's doing so well, it's another new lease of life for him and he's giving it the personality and having guests on like it needs and taking it back as it should be In the schedule shake up i'd have like to have seen Scott get 4-7 all the time again

  46. 1 point
    The first time it came around, he even had a bit of fun with it and got people to ask questions for which the answer was "I will leave a light on". Although maybe he was taking the piss all along! Annoyingly I missed the show live so I'm listening back on iPlayer now, I'm nearly done, so some thoughts. The chat with Chris Smith and Mayor of Where was great, I'm so glad they had a proper last chat and talked about their relationship. I noticed Greg specifically said "we are being separated". So that confirms that then. But it was so lovely to hear them reminiscing. The Ten Minute Takeover was great as well, I did wonder whether it was fixed though - the first song, You and Me Song by The Wannadies is just a bit emosh, Language by Porter Robinson was his opening bed for about two years and End Credits by Chase and Status used to be the music used for the montage of that day's show he used to play at about 18:55 for the first year or so of drivetime. Coincidence or what. The highlights montage was great as well. It's a shame for Greg's show that Grace isn't moving with him, although his loss is Scott's gain and hopefully we'll be hearing a lot of her on-air with him and Chris. And obviously the loss of Chris Smith is a tragedy. I don't want to form an opinion on the new breakfast show before it's even started, and I'm sure whatever happens I'll like it a lot (or at least more than Grimmy's tenure) but it seems as if he's being set up to fail by not keeping his team in place. When Moyles moved from afternoons to breakfast, his core team was kept - him, Dave, Rachel and Aled. Only Georgina Bowman and David Garrido didn't move and they weren't really a part of the show outside of news bulletins. So breaking up the team is undoubtedly a mistake. But we'll see how it goes. Maybe I'm just in denial but I don't think we've seen the last of Greg and Chris on-air together - even if it's just occasional cover. I remember reading this forum six years ago when the schedule changes were announced. I wasn't a member then, and I don't think any of the regular posters from that time are still around, but back then the forum understandably wasn't happy about Mills being taken off drivetime. Six years on, I think it was for the best - he's lasted way longer on Radio 1 than anyone would've expected back then whilst had he stayed on drive he might not have. And Greg's show was more than a worthy successor. I can't believe I've been listening to Radio 1 that long though - I was in year 8 when Greg started drivetime and I remember coming home to hear his first show, and now I've finished my first year at uni. Wow.

    Scott's Chart Show - Updated Imaging

    I prefer the imaging Greg had - this update seems like a watered down version of the same package. I doubt Delicious Digital had any involvement in this refresh, I'd say the in-house R1 production team just updated what they got first time around.

    Oh yes*, I love all of these, but couldn't name them all even if I tried. I can add one though: the fake BBC Three promos which always sounded real for a few moments, and these "shows" were always hosted by the same "former Atomic Kitten member", that was where I always lost it. Saved a few episodes back then, I might give them a listen when I can. *YAAAAAAASS!
