    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!

    The UM Dream Schedule for R1

    Thank you for organising this! The results are very interesting but mostly what I expected really. Although I didn’t realise this forum had so much love for Arielle but I don’t think that’s a bad thing. I would be very happy for a future radio 1 schedule to look like that.

    Chris is very much Scott’s “sidekick”. The others are all “co-presenters”.

    It's interesting actually, maybe I'm just remembering wrong but at the time, although he was controversial generally, amongst Radio 1 fans Moyles was universally popular. But as time has passed since the show ended, the collective memory of it seems to have changed and it's treated like an embarrassing relic. For me the show was the thing that made me fall in love with radio, it was everything a breakfast show should be and I think Lee has it right when he uses the word "magic" to describe what Chris created. But Toby also has a valid point when he mentions the racist and homophobic incidents, and as a huge fan of the show I'm not really sure how to reconcile the two. What is clear though is that Chris has been on a huge journey in recent years, maybe sped up by friends like Aled and Hirsty, and it's hard to believe when you hear some of the things he's come out with recently that he's the same guy who used the word "gay" in a derogatory way and constantly perved over female guests/team members. I'd expect and hope he looks back on the way he used to be and cringes - I read his book recently and whilst fascinating, it made for some pretty uncomfortable reading in parts. I guess the show has to be looked back on, like most things, as a product of its time, and appreciate the things that made it so brilliant and compelling whilst acknowledging the aspects that were problematic.

    Katie Thistleton is also worthy of doing more than just doing Life Hacks. She was one of the key players in the Lolathon last year, thought she added a lot of value alongside Jordan.

    So proud and excited for Aled. What do we all reckon will happen with the station going forward as it was hinted there will be exciting changes. There will be a heavier social media and digital presence that's almost a guarantee. The daytime music playlist may be looked into a bit more he's such a big pop music fan so can see it becoming more 80% pop chart hits and 20% Alternative genres. The schedule will remain un touched for a while as he would've had a real say over changes in the past year or so. However i would expect anytime now an announcement that Jordan North has got Friday-Sundays 10-1 when Lockdown schedule is over. What's everyone's thoughts?

    Well, the only complete package I have is from 2003 if you want that. I also have 2007, 2009, 2011, 2015 and 2017 but their all incomplete and the audio quality on a couple of them aren’t brilliant.

    The UM Dream Schedule for R1 The Results There are four parts to this results post: My interpretation of the dream schedule based on the results Pie charts for the votes for each show Chart of the top 25 presenters based on total number of votes across the poll Other fun facts (including popularity of double acts) My interpretation of the dream schedule based on the results Where a presenter is the most popular choice for multiple slots, they are chosen for the one where there is no alternative who is both popular and available (i.e. the presenter in second place has been chosen elsewhere). Despite the fact that Matt and Mollie were voted most popular for weekend breakfast, as Matt was more popular on his own overall (throughout the entire poll), I have decided to put Matt solo down for that slot. Weekdays (Mon to Fri) 04:00 to 06:30 – Adele Roberts 06:30 to 10:00 – Greg James 10:00 to 13:00 – Arielle Free 13:00 to 16:00 – Scott and Chris 16:00 to 19:00 – Jordan North Scott Mills for Chart on Fridays 19:00 to 21:00 – Annie Mac 21:00 to 23:00 – Rickie, Melvin and Charlie 23:00 to 01:00 – Jack Saunders Weekend (Sat to Sun) 04:00 to 06:30 – Gregor Davidson 06:30 to 10:00 – Matt Edmondson 10:00 to 13:00 – Nick Grimshaw 13:00 to 16:00 – Dev and Alice 16:00 to 19:00 – MistaJam for Dance Anthems on Saturdays Cel and Katie for Life Hacks on Sundays Pie charts for the votes for each show Click the link below: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1YIAUMAhox_46oleWcBaFqeG7NtywbgaP/view?usp=sharing See key points at the top of the document for more information on this. Chart of the top 25 presenters based on total number of votes across the poll Scott Mills Jordan North Greg James Arielle Free Chris Stark Dev Alice Levine Matt Edmondson Annie Mac Nick Grimshaw Charlie Hedges Jack Saunders Katie Thistleton Adele Roberts Clara Amfo Melvin Odoom Rickie Haywood Williams Cel Spellman MistaJam Mollie King Gregor Davidson Riyadh Khalaf Huw Stephens Maya Jama Phil Taggart Other fun facts (including popularity of double acts) There were 63 responses. 67% of responses favoured including Friday in the weekday schedule, leaving only 33% favouring a three day weekend. The most popular new presenters were (in no particular order): Riyadh Khalaf, Abbie McCarthy, Gregor Davidson, Jessica Maciel and Vick Hope. Matt Edmondson is more popular alone than with Mollie. Dev and Alice are more popular together than apart. Dev was slightly more popular than Alice. Cel and Katie are more popular together than apart. Katie is more popular than Cel. Scott and Chris are more popular as a duo than Scott is solo. The only new double act suggested a significant number of times is Annie and Grimmy. Rickie, Melvin and Charlie were always voted as a trio other than for dance anthems where Charlie was preferred solo.

    We seem to be going over the places that One Big Weekend used to visit. But either way I'd be so pissed off if I was Radio 1 and a local newspaper had spoiled the announcement like that.

    Unofficial Mills meet up????

    How about this who would like to arrange a meet for members of the site in London near NBH? like a coffee/lunch scenario and see if Scott and some of the team could come to meet us and chat for an hour or so? I thought a Friday at like 11am to meet and invite Scott Chris maybe his producer? so we could meet our hero and just say hi or is it like weird? and people say you should never meet your idol?

    2020 Predictions

    Mollie on Mids would be dreadful. I really don’t think it’ll happen. She’s not got the right style to do it, she sort of talks in sound bites a lot when on her own a bit like Maya, and just doesn’t come across as authentic.

    Breakfast Deps?

    I love Dev and Alice and think they’re the best on the station at the moment, but I think that’s the problem, that neither of them would probably be able to commit to a weekday slot as they’d both be off for half the time.

    Saturday sports show on Radio 1

    That's an interesting suggestion - sport is generally something you don't hear much about on Radio 1, outside of breakfast news. I wonder if it would just be too much of a risk, given that for a lot of people, sport is just a turn off. Still, I think it's something Radio 1 could do very well, particularly coverage of women's sports.

    It seems a strange move and could be spelling the end of the 1-4 show on R1 meaning he'll just do Friday chart, Saturday on 5 and maybe weekday cover on R2? although the article clearly says no plan to bin the weekday R1 show off yet Funny enough Moyles was a whoooo today in the whoo game He may well be steering towards only working Fri/Sat/Sun and this is a step towards it as his partner Sam is on Nation Radio Saturdays in Cardiff so probably has to travel down Friday night therefore it may suit Scott personally to be doing weekends and have Monday to Thursday off to be with Sam who has just moved to London

    I never really thought a talk station would be the direction of travel for Scott, but it definetly makes sense over a choice between Radio 2 and 6Music. Means he's up against Moyles on Radio X which is usually where my radio goes on a Saturday morning too.

    Wow! Didn't see this one coming. How interesting - Mills on a talk station. Hope there's a podcast, I'm excited to hear how it sounds. And he'll be doing SEVEN days a week on-air for a few weeks - Show Monday-Thursday, Chart on Friday, 5Live on Saturday and Radio 2 on Sunday. Impressive. Shame for Geoff Lloyd who'd been covering that slot though, assumed he was gonna get it permanently. Could also suggest it gears him up for a full time move to Radio 2 without Chris, this way they get to stay together once a week.

    I have a couple of bits on top of that, such as the Headlines bed and the 1Xtra intro, but that's about it. Does seem very difficult to get hold of. I messaged Dan once regarding the old 2015 package as I don't have any of that one, as that was quite a large jingle package for newsbeat, so many different beds that only saw the light of day once or twice. Never had a response. But in fairness, he's probably really busy producing etc!

    What Radio 1 Presenters do we miss?

    Towards the end he was very up his own arse but the audience liked this I think so he played up to it He doesn't seem as much like that now but at the end of the day he was out of touch with the Radio 1 audience and it needed a refresh You have to remember Scott is less than a month younger than Chris Moyles and he's still going strong becuase he is in touch and embraces the changes, like being moved slot, yes afternoons were a demotion from drive but it's given him a new lease of life which has led to him doing the chart - he is the only R1 presenter on all 5 weekdays, get's the most on air time of all (15hrs) that's one hour more a week than Greg is getting and hes now got two more hours on Sunday nights until Christmas on Radio 2 Sara Cox survived at R1 two more years than Moyles as well remember that

    Origin Of Whoooing

    It started with Mark & Lard's afternoon show on Radio 1, who were on that slot from 1998 - 2004. For me they were genius but you have to have to that sense of humor to get them. Basically they used to do a multitude of 'spoof' quizzes, where Lard (Marc Riley) would go into the other studio and pretend to be some wayward maniac caller into the show to play the quiz. The 'whooooo' came from one called 'It's a Mystery'. Where there would be weird clues to guess who the celeb was, Lard on the other end of the phone would never get the answer. And when revealed (someone usually well known) there would be a few seconds silence followed by a loud 'WHHOOOOOOOOOO!!!' You can hear a clip here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LamKPIw5yGM

    So it's a year since Greg opened with a TMTO what do we all think one year into his tenure on breakfast? I think he's making a good job of it and has turned it round from the stale old show with Grimmy, also he has made it him and you, 1 on 1 not Tina, not Sinade not Fiona, just you and Greg, its a complete contract to what was before I think he is a stayer, and as a geek he will definitely want to beat Moyles' record Very sad that Scott is not Dep anymore though as it was always great Should Greg have taken over from CM in 2012? IMO NO because it was a massive institution to follow and I think biding his time has paid off

    Schedule Changes

    So as it's a bank holiday the rules of the percentage of new music or mainstream music that has to be played don't apply so the presenters will probably be playing the same specialist music they normally play on their own shows. They often do random things like this on bank holidays but the thing I'm most looking forward to is hearing Pete Tong introducing the Newsbeat bulletins 😂

    Its supposed to be in the style of the specialist show in question though because its a takeover, so I suspect it will be the same imaging as The Chillest Show

    There’s no way another breakfast host will last 6-8 years after Moyles. It needs to refresh much quicker than that, Moyles staying so long left radio 1 in a tricky situation, not to mention, Greg’s breakfast era is really most likely a transitional show before the new big radio 1 DJs break through.

    New Newsbeat jingles to launch 6 June

    I'd love a jingle that began with a loud BOOM followed by "THIS..... IS THE F****** NEWS" ..... #justathought And "here... is your b****** weather" .... and "If you don't like it, tune in to someone else". :hahaha: - I should get to create jingles, and I didn't get my "audio boo" chosen either - boo - mind you, it was created in the toilet.

    I like it. Not the last one, the one before http://chrismoyles.net/soundvault/pafiledb.php?action=file&id=1203 had that rocky up tempo theme, whereas the last one was a bit flat. This one's much better.
