    Anyone catch the Radio 1 Breakfast power intros today? Heard Little Mix, Halsey and a couple more. Sounded good.

    Out of interest where did you find the imaging? I still can't find a demo online.

    Ant L got a reaction from murste in Friday is now the weekend   
    Well then... very unexpected.
    The good:
    Great to see Mollie King permanently joining Matt, I think we all thought she fitted in well. I'm normally against non-radio celebs getting permanent airtime but Mollie feels like a natural. I'm not overly bothered about Matt on his own but with Mollie it should be an entertaining listen. Mills getting the Chart is fantastic. I can't see Chris joining him as the show isn't very zoo-format worthy but Mills has always been better than any chart host he's covered so should be good. Dev and Alice are two of my personal favourites at Radio 1 so I'll never say no to more of them.  The bad:
    As much as Clara's show isn't my cup of tea the weekday 10-1 slot is traditionally the most new/live music-oriented show on the daytime line-up, and she's fit into that particular role nicely. I thought Radio 1 were supposed to be increasing their new music quota and I don't see how churning out the likes of Teenage Dirtbag or Mr Brightside again, now on a weekday (sort-of), is helping that. Maya's got potential but I don't think she's there yet. A weekday show is a big gig so we'll need to hear how that works out. The Chart extending to 7pm is disappointing, even if it is with Mills. I thought the condensed hours worked better for a show which for a large part is songs which have come and gone from the playlist weeks ago.  Dance Anthems was always a nice little segue into the specialist dance shows of Friday nights. Poor move scrapping the Friday edition. A bold move from Cooper ditching three of the station's biggest names one day per week but innovation is never a bad thing.

    I have to say I agree. I think Mollie's naturally funny and the show works well. She also hits the vocal on the news intro better than Matt - we all love a bit of slickness on here.
    Maybe they could just keep her...

    Ant L got a reaction from thebeuter in Bad news for Grimmy but good news for Clara, Scott and Greg   
    I've made this point before but I feel Radio 1's target audience should be 16-35, and not 16-24 (or 29 officially) as it is now. Radio 2's target demographic is 35+, leaving no mainstream BBC radio service aimed for those of us aged between 25 and 35.
    It's also all very well Ben Cooper talking about Radio 1's YouTube subscribers but without the pull of a strong breakfast show then there may well be less engagement with the platform. And of course radio should always be the priority.
    I happen to quite like Grimmy now, however the show really needs a bit of a revamp. The finest moments are when Grimmy is just himself and not so "on-script"- for example I enjoyed him talking about his dogs yesterday, or when him and Fiona naturally bounce off one another. The entertainment news is quite good in the sense that it gives Grimmy someone else to bounce off but there seems to be heavy reliance on it as a "feature".

    Every weekend in September Radio 1 are playing some of the best songs of the last 50 years too during the 10am-1pm slot.
    Grimmy played some old songs this morning, complete with old jingles blended in with normal imaging. Sounded really good.
    I also never thought we'd hear power intros of Wham! and Stevie Wonder...! Heard some during Adele's show.

    So a new Newsbeat package has launched this morning. 
    Sounds like an update to Daniel Mumford's last theme.

    Ant L got a reaction from WELOVEMOYLESPART2 in Luke Frank sitting in for Alice on Sunday   
    He does sound like he'd maybe fit better on Capital or Heart rather than Radio 1, but then it was his first show and I guess it takes a bit of time to adapt style. Surprised he was given such a prominent slot for his first appearance but hey ho - he does sound very slick and there's definitely potential there.
    Saying that it's good to hear some new voices on Radio 1 daytime and not just someone that's transitioned over from 1Xtra.

    And from a geeky perspective his news intros are spot on - right up to the vocal.

    Can't quite believe they're still using imaging from the package which was last used 5 years ago. Craziness.

    I did notice that the only place you'd hear the old Where It Begins idents was at the start of Adele's show. Hopefully that'll be a proper end to the Pure Jingles package completely - the new sound is much fresher.
