  1. Just listening to this on Sounds, absolutely gutted - in my opinion she's the best thing on Radio 1 and will be a massive loss. She's so warm and genuine, her enthusiasm for music is infectious and her Friday night show is the stuff of legend... End of an era 😞😞😞
  2. I don't understand the continued talk of Grimmy leaving - he had the second longest running breakfast show on Radio 1, he must be doing something right. I hope he stays for a long time yet - he's the best daytime Radio 1 presenter in my opinion. He's funny, sassy, knowledgeable with music and knows what's going on in popular culture - why would he leave?
  3. What did Greg say, out of interest? I must admit I haven't listened to the chart in years - I don't think it really means much anymore, since streaming was introduced. I'd be happier if it was on at 1 then Grimmy was on half 3 to 6. (The weekend on a Friday idea was always terrible, but makes even less sense now Greg is on but the rest of the weekday line-up isn't). I think the show would be perfect for a Friday afternoon, and he could do Going Home Anthems at 5 - which would make much more sense than half 3 on a Thursday. Then a handover chat with Annie - they're always fun but would be
  4. Not sure I ever forgave her for replacing Jo Whiley - and very poorly. Can't say I'm sad to see her go, think she's one of the worst DJs on R1 at the moment (excluding Dan & Phil, Gemma...). I think it's time for Scott to go, when he covered for Grimmy recently it was kinda laboured. I don't understand why there's so much speculation about Grimmy leaving - he's probably the best thing on the station after Annie Mac.
  5. I agree, so much better without Huw and I quite like Alice, certainly better than Cotton. Weekends will never be as good as the Jo Whiley / Sara Cox days, but they're improving.
  6. Quite, not sure why everyone seems to talk about it like it's a definite. I like Grimmy, his is pretty much the only daytime show I listen to now. I find Greg's show boring, can't see him ever being ready for breakfast.
  7. Oh yes, whoops! I also loved Jo's show, always an interesting listen.
  8. I don't think the weekend line-up has ever been worse - I don't really bother listening any more. Dev - I've never really liked, still sounds very amateurish. Matt Edmondson - good, can see him moving to weekdays. Huw Stephens - beyond boring, does not suit daytime in the slightest. Why he replaced the brilliant Sara Cox is baffling - probably Radio 1 again going with the idea that younger presenters are automatically more relevant / appealing to the audience. Danny Howard - not bad, quite like the show. Jameela Jamil - pretty bad. Dan & Phil - painful to listen to.
  9. I know this is a Scott Mills site but... I think this last two weeks has really shown his show to be past it - it's trying too hard to be young. The whole thing sounds contrived / scripted and the constant repetition is really irritating. I've been mostly listening to other shows this fortnight - I can't wait for Grimmy to come back. Sorry!
  10. Well hopefully it's not Greg James then, as he just moved. Really really really hope not.
  11. Was that a dream? Did Chris really just announce he was leaving? I was expecting it to be some sort of joke. A bad day for Radio 1...
  12. Exactly! It seems the line-up becomes a little worse with each 'refresh'. Radio 1 seem to be unable to escape the idea that to appeal to young people they HAVE to have DJs and only play music by acts who are the same age, no matter how dull each of those are. I'd much rather listen to Jo Whiley than Huw Stephens for example- I found her features a thousand times more relevant and interesting than the inane-banter-to-fill-the-gaps-between-songs approach he and a lot of the other 'newer' presenters take. What is the obsession with Greg James? I honestly have no idea why he is supposed to be the
  13. Radio 1 really needs to get over dubstep. I'm not sure who they're actually playing it for- only one of my friends actually likes (or liked) it, and that was only before it became "commercial". Besides which, I think music has moved on since 2009.
  14. Ta for the warning, I'll remember not to switch the radio on Sunday morning. In fact all day.
  15. I really miss Jo at the weekends, was such a great show. As opposed to Huw- it's just so... unessential listening! His show is so light on features he had to resort to recycling Jo Whiley's from the weekday show- Seven Song Shuffle rebranded as Lyrical Hodge Podge anyone? Now The Request Show has kinda nosedived in terms of quality for some reason, the only thing worth listening to at weekends is the criminally underused Coxy.
