  1. Hey, look what I found - a new-style DJ page for Friction's new show: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01d76m6 Presumably this is the style that they'll be moving to? Don't want to be a spoilsport but... I don't really like it...
  2. Where do you get such early listings from, out of interest?
  3. See, this just makes me wonder whether Tom Deacon will be kept on as a cover presenter. It's weird, it never said on the press releases that he was leaving (it usually would state "as a result of these changes Tom will leave the station"), and if he was going, would he be presenting a week of shows on his final week at the station? Where's Adam Catterall?
  4. Starts at 2002 because it's part of 6Music's tenth anniversary - the station started in 2002.
  5. Spot on, although Reggie won't be around for long I'd wager. He's being completely marginalised, cut to 1 show a week - fair enough the chart's a big show, but it doesn't really allow him to show off any real presenting skills, plus he never seems to do cover. I wouldn't be sad to see him go to be honest, don't really feel he does very well in general.
  6. Did Scott mention anything on the show today? Never listened...
  7. It's another discussion, but while Greg James is the most likely contender for Breakfast now, they could go leftfield and do something like put Fearne and Matt Edmondson on breakfast. Which would be like cooking steak for dinner and then serving it alongside offal...
  8. Two things that haven't been talked about yet... * I'm assuming Scott will be doing the Chart Update each Wednesday? * They could lose the wonderyears but they'd better have Greg do Ready for the Weekend because it's one of my favourite shows of the week, and I would be raging if they ditched it...
  9. The natural progression from Radio 1 once you "outgrow" it is surely 6Music, not Radio 2. 6Music also promotes new music, but not necessarily chart. Much more eclectic, interesting music on the station than Radio 2, it's a miles better listen IMO, and I can imagine that's what I'll be listening to in 10 years time. If the BBC doesn't try to close it again...
  10. I thought of Matt on request/chart, but he needs a proper show to give him room to do sketches and interviews and things. To be honest, although I'd like to hear him more than once a week, ditching Tom Deacon and moving the Matt Edmondson Show to 7pm-9pm Sunday would work wonders.
  11. I agree, weekends needs a kick up the backside. Here's my dream renovation: Sat & Sun 7am - Adam Catterall 10am - Sara Cox 1pm - Matt Edmondson 4pm - Someone who isn't Reggie. Anyone.
  12. Major loss here is BBC Introducing nations. The specialised Scottish (and I assume Welsh and Irish shows) offer something utterly distinctive that you can't find elsewhere, BBCs remit should be to protect and foster them, not cut back. Poor show...
  13. I'm surprised the website was made live to everyone so soon because it still feels totally beta. Why have they not updated the old dj and show pages yet? The links on the homepage sometimes don't work. It just seems not ready yet, don't you think?
  14. Really interesting article actually, it's something you never really think of
