  1. 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.
  2. Could you possibly repost the 2011 Newsbeat package that was sent to you by one of your Twitter followers?

    The existing link is dead.



  3. It's definitely more the sort of show I envisaged it to be like, less stiffness, going off-script, being silly. Vast improvement in the last two weeks
  4. Robbie Williams is a good guest and is full of energy
  5. It must be quite strange to have to basically do two hours of radio with very few interruptions. I thought Vicky was a bit of an odd choice initially for the first show guest, but actually she helped hold the show together.
  6. Enjoying having Murray and Chapman ribbing Scott about his age 😂 "It's like a Radio 1 retirement home" I think this section shows where they're all most comfortable on-air...
  7. I was hoping it would be a bit more like Elis James and John Robins or Adam and Joe, which is less sporty. But perhaps this is what the average 5 Live listener wants to hear, I'm not particularly their target audience. They'll find their feet though, that'll be the beauty of this space they've been given.
  8. As a non-sport fan it's a bit of a struggle so far as I can't get wowed by the sporty guests they're talking to, but I do like that there's opportunity for Scott to shake off the youthful image and make jokes about Anita Dobson and Allo Allo. I'm just glad they're on at a time I can listen for once... 5 Live certainly still sounds so much more tinny than Radio 1. Well with a new boss at the helm they'll want a shake up...
  9. Who's tuned in this morning? Will be interesting to hear how they try to keep sport fans and non-sport fans interested.
  10. I think the equivalent was Chappers and Dave when they would broadcast over the summer months around the World Cup period. I think they also broadcast from a few sporting initiatives (if I recall) as I remember them broadcasting from the Sportspark in Norwich.
  11. 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.
  12. Full story here: https://unofficialmills.co.uk/2019/10/scott-mills-and-chris-stark-to-host-new-bbc-radio-5-live-show/ I'm happy to hear this is the next step for Scott - even better than Chris is going with him. 5Live seems a good fit for experimenting with a new show, and a station without music will make it even more interesting. I suspect a move away from Radio 1 will be on the cards at some point. I'll be listening!
  13. Most likely. I actually really enjoy it, although I understand those criticisms that it's a move away from the station's remit to a certain extent.
  14. I guess this is this year's equivalent of a summer mix - Radio 1's Greatest Hits will air every day for an hour at 10am from Monday 8th July. Scott's Dance Anthems programme is becoming 'Radio 1's Party Anthems' too.
  15. I think they suit that timeslot - but agree if they want to move into daytime they'll need to broaden their appeal.
