  1. Clara to Future Sounds, RMC to 10am-1pm. https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/2021/clara-amfo-host-radio-1-future-sounds
  2. Interesting that the Big Weekend won't go ahead at all, as opposed to it merely being postponed like most other things have been. Depending on how the situation unfolds over the coming months, I can see the Ibiza Weekend having the same fate unfortunately.
  3. Anyone heard any recently?
  4. It's funny, you tend not to notice era changes at Radio 1 until you see a list of names like that. I think the station's sounding really good at the moment. For me Greg and Grimmy are much better suited to their new timeslots. Nick's much more himself than he was in the structured format the old Breakfast Show was in, a decent listen. Greg makes Breakfast feel quite exciting and big budget, whist maintaining his trademark silliness. I wouldn't say Annie is new however. She started on air in 2004 (according to Wikipedia) and was on BBC Switch with Grimmy what seems like donkeys ago.
  5. Since posting that I haven't heard many other breakfast intros. I'm either missing them or they were just a trial.
  6. Anyone catch the Radio 1 Breakfast power intros today? Heard Little Mix, Halsey and a couple more. Sounded good.
  7. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p06n2sl7 (about 14m in)
  8. Which of the beds are actually used? I never really take notice of them. The only one I can remember is Epic.
  9. Who doesn't love a montage. I've never heard that ident with the Dance Anthems theme/Ibiza anthem before. Was that ever used on air? EDIT: Ahh, I've found it - https://www.wisebuddah.com/archive/jingles/bbc-radio-1-2018
  10. It was. The new version is little less “harsh” on the ears.
  11. When did the countdown music change? I seem to remember on the first few shows that the beeps hadn’t changed but the rest of the beds had. Or I’m imagining it, which is possible.
  12. Annie’s Friday show is now ‘Radio 1’s Dance Party with Annie Mac’. I guess this all to make the shows stand out on the BBC Sounds app which has programmes and podcasts from across the BBC. Surprised Radio 1 Breakfast didn’t get the same treatment - Radio 1’s Breakfast Show maybe.
  13. Trying to work out what happened. 1Xtra seemed to get some element of the news at 12:45 which cut away to music after the Thomas Cook report. The online schedules show Newsbeat at 13:00 but the recording starts at 12:45 (causing initial confusion when trying to piece this together!). My theory is that at 12:45 both R1 and 1Xtra were due to fade up Newsbeat as usual. Radio 1's feed from Newsbeat failed (as they were on an OB) but it went out fine on 1X. Nesta McGregor could hear the output of R1 (which didn't have him faded up) and not 1Xtra so he kept repeating his opening line assuming no-one could hear him. 1Xtra got the word to cut away from Newsbeat after the Thomas Cook report and re-join at 13:00 instead along with Radio 1.
  14. I doubt we’ll have an entirely new package tomorrow. The preview of the breakfast imaging heard on the podcast (before it was deleted) suggests not much change, and new idents were only launched a couple of weeks back. Long live the power intros.
  15. I think the playlist does tend to lean more towards R&B, hip-hop and the like at times, but a lot of pop at the moment falls into those categories so it's just a reflection of what's popular at the moment. My only complaint is that songs tend to stick around on the playlist a LITTLE too long. Human by Rag'n'Bone Man quickly comes to mind. Or Jackie Chan by Tiesto. Absolutely destroyed.
  16. Has the podcast episode changed? I listened on the iOS Podcasts app earlier and the full theme was there. Listening through that link now and it's just a bed. Leaked a little early perhaps?
  17. Oh man, that’s quite a shock! Not so much about Tina (that’s largely expected) but Chris Smith going is a surprise. I wonder if he’ll be staying at the BBC. The talk of the podcast’s future would suggest possibly.
  18. I'm trying to read between the lines about the Greg James and Chris Smith with the News situation. My impression is that they won't be ON-AIR together but there's something in the pipeline for the autumn, along the lines of the podcast. Chris said "WE'LL try and come back" on this week's episode so that sounds positive.
  19. Am I right in saying Weekend Breakfast has been re-named 'Dev & Alice' online? I can't remember if it's always been that or not.
  20. Out of interest where did you find the imaging? I still can't find a demo online.
  21. Well spotted. Sounds like the existing sonic logo remains in a refreshed form. I think that's the old voiceovers now officially gone from the station.
