  1. Does anybody remember how it started now? It feels like such a normal thing I'll do it in conversation with my friends, but I just can't remember where it came from.
  2. Travis is now the AP for Matt Edmonson, not sure if I'd call that a promotion, unless he just wanted to cut down on his hours.
  3. I was thinking about this a couple of days ago and realistically Greg couldn't do breakfast, although he's got the talent to they wouldn't let Chris Smith stop being the face of Newsbeat for the breakfast show & he's a major part of the show.
  4. I love hearing the nerdy side of Greg, he makes some jokes that'll fly over other people's heads and make anoraks like myself chuckle, but not enough to lose the attention of the rest of the audience, which is a good trait to have. Him & Scott both do this on Real or No Real a fair bit though I've noticed, even stuff like the reference to 'It's Only Bleh Friday' on Tuesday made me smile a little.
  5. On the new breakfast opener, I feel like it's not a bad thing that they've shortened it because on the few occasions I've listened to Grimmy and heard his opening link I can't help but notice that he says nothing in it, other than the usual DJ crap "Thanks to Gemma, this is Nick Grimshaw on Radio 1 doing the Radio 1 Breakfast Show, here on Radio 1". From an imaging standpoint it's edited horribly throughout, from the whoosh at the beginning trying to cover up the opening to the sharp cut 10 seconds in and the bit after the voiceover. On topic though, I can't comment on Scott because I haven't
  6. I hate the sonic logo, I'd go back to the one from the old 00s Newsbeat packages (& most generic daytime beds at the time). It just sounds a bit cheap and 2010ish to me, I think the general idea is a lot nicer though, glad they have got rid of "Listen, watch, share". The ramp into it sounds a lot slicker & it's nothing too loud and punchy, it's closer to the old packages where it's something subtle in the background. I know newsreaders shouldn't be expected to be technical geniuses but at the end of certain bulletins they have a bed to trail the main lunchtime/drive programmes but then
  7. I imagine that they must have backup generators, there's no way that they'd not have a failsafe because so much of the BBC's output comes from there.
  8. Confirmation that Scott (& covers for Scott) are in 82A https://twitter.com/Chris_Stark/status/532908573219885057/photo/1 Also a previous post on a similar thread suggests that Zane is in 82A (unless it's changed, like Mills' has) http://www.unofficialmills.co.uk/communities/showthread.php?20128-Scott-Mills-Studio&p=408499&viewfull=1#post408499
  9. I didn't know about where the sound was mixed, I wondered what the extra desk was for, thanks! I suppose they could always use a side studio, there are 4 of them after all so there must be 1 free... I think you're right about Matt, however it surprises me that he comes from a side studio, because I imagine that means that one of the larger studios is used by weekend breakfast, which is hardly prime time... I'd imagine that shows like Dance Anthems & The Official Chart come from a larger studio though because they both require more preparation and production than the rest of the daytime wee
  10. You're probably right that he's in 82A now, because it seems that Innuendo Bingo has been recorded there since April, so since they managed to do it fine in the old side studio & still cover everything up in 82A that's probably the case. The only problem I have with that is wondering what happens if there's a live lounge for 1xtra in mid-mornings. I know that 82A would technically be free, but Scott has said previously he usually gets in to the studio 2 hours before (although there's less prank calls and stuff that HAS to be prepared in the studio these days so it may only be 1 hour) Any i
  11. I got a little confused with which show comes from which studio today because in a recent video introducing iPlayer viewers to Radio 1 Greg was in his usual studio 82D, but mentioned that Fearne's show also comes from there. I know that Scott comes from 82E on his normal 1-4pm show (but seems to be creeping into 82A when doing innuendo bingo), but that confuses me a little... as I understand it, Grimmy comes from 82A (or Scott when he's covering breakfast), so does that leave 1xtra breakfast in a side studio? Just for the sake of having more nerd points I'd also be interested to know which stu
  12. Ew Fearne *shudders* I have a new found respect for her, but still dislike her shows and can't bear to listen to them.
  13. I don't like the idea of Zane having a shorter show & starting later in the day, I think he's great at what he does and he's one of the best DJs on the station (plus Ben Cooper promised they wouldn't have less specialist hours than they currently do). I think Alice Levine could do Fearne's slot, although Gemma would be alright (I don't like her personally but the management seem to want to give her a chance). Although I loved Scott on drive, I can't see him doing it again personally for a number of reasons, plus it doesn't make sense to create new teams for two hour shows when the current
  14. You might be right there actually, I remember they did something together, wasn't sure if it was short term or long term though. Talking of Beccy, I wonder what she's doing in the office these days..
  15. Baha I laughed at the idea of Scott doing commercial radio, there's no way he'd go back to that tripe, he's said so himself. I think so long as he can keep coming up with new ideas and making a good show every day, he'll want to renew it (assuming Radio 1 don't try and push him out). He might go to Radio 2, but I'm not sure I could see him doing that either.. I suspect that the day he leaves Radio 1 is the day he leaves radio.
