    DC got a reaction from thebeuter in Christmas and New Year on Radio 1 2016   
    15 year old's and below aren't interested in Radio. They've grown up with ipods, and youtube and spotify and therefore never had to use Radio like we did in the 90's and early 2000's.
     
    They hire out one of the studio's at a station I'm at, for students from the uni to use on media courses. Just last week I chatted to the tutor who was overseeing a few students recording demo's etc. And he told me that they didn't know the difference between Radio 1 & Radio 4. One told him they had actually never listened to Radio 1 at any point in their life, incredible considering what they are studying.
     
    But it goes to show Radio 1 is facing a lost battle with trying to pull in children as listeners. If they are going to go anywhere it's Capital as they hardly talk and play the same 15 songs back to back.

    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...

    Have to post this. Wes Butters buggering up the end of Mark & Lard in March 2004, with Scott Mills somewhere in the middle apologizing for the break in transmission. Trying to hold in his laughter.

    DC got a reaction from bensteele in Will there be a schedule shakeup in September?   
    That won't happen. As much as I don't see how Danny's show is actually "Dance Anthems" when it's loads of fresh and mostly unreleased new dance music. Unlike Dave Pearce's version which was well established dance tracks that everyone knew.
     
    Radio 1 has always had a dance show in that time for years. Remember, Judge Jules used to be there from the late 90's into the early 2000's, and then moved to 7-9 on a Saturday night. It is at the perfect time as people are getting ready to go out.
     
    I do think Danny's show needs to be renamed though as it's a bit misleading with loads of upfront tunes. Maybe bring in a new presenter and put Dance Anthems on a Sunday evening, playing erm dance anthems. Where it always should of been.
