  1. Whats the deal with Sideman, now that Charlie Sloth has disappeared in a puff of smoke? Does he have a permanent contract with R1? I just assumed he was paid freelance and would go with CS?
  2. I do wonder how it works with staffing with some producers having 1 show a week , or 2 for weekends and others having 4 for week daytime shows? Do the weekend producers have to come in in the week and work on other shows? Or do the producers at weekends produce multiple shows?
  3. Her bio also says Producer now so maybe she's just been promoted? Which is why she's left Scotts show?
  4. Does anyone have a download of Greg's last show at all please? Many thanks, Harry
  5. Does anyone have a download of Greg's last show please? (both parts) The method I had to download shows isnt working any more! Many thanks in advance, Harry
  6. It really is quite a bizarre schedule change really, adding so much but without losing anyone. It is strange to have a co-host on nearly every show. There are 9 presenters on at the weekend now (10 if you count Dr Rhada) as opposed to a core of 4 required, which seems very over crowded. In the press release they are really pushing Maya Jama as the big winner here, with making her the press photo, and giving her a co-host with Scott for 1 midweek day (...how very random!), which is again another surprise for Jordan to be slightly sidelined after being used so frequently by Radio 1. We shall wait and see. Its almost like they want to make big changes but don't have the guts to fire anyone! I'm disappointed that Alice is getting a worse show, and having to co-host, as she is such a genuinely funny presenter.
  7. Did anyone record any of R1 Vintage? I love the initial 1 countdown before the Tony and Grimmy show - so many brilliant soundbites. Does anyone have a downloaded copy of it please? Many thanks.
  8. I remember that show that Moyles did - I wouldn't exactly say that "in the olden days Moyles would have covered it". It was a complete one off and remember Chris joking that he was something like 7th to be asked!
  9. Am I being really stupid....but what is TOH and BOH? Thanks in advance.
  10. I think the Ke$ha incident was wayyyy before Greg James started.
  11. Hell all, I was listening to the I love TUSU podcast and when they were talking about flings with coworkers with a caller, did anyone notice Chris cheekily mention about the fling Scott had with a coworker to be quickly silenced on the matter with a promise that it would never be discussed on air. When the girl very quickly asked if we might know them he said yes probably, suggesting someone at Radio 1?! Any guesses at who it might be?
  12. I think Real or No Real and the conversations that surround the facts are just brilliant, my favourite is with Greg James or Alice Levine, who are just so witty. It is a fantasticly simple but brilliant feature. And I don't know if it was because I am a similar age to Chris, but I remember smiling through the whole of each Tap End episode. I used to laugh out loud in my car on my own. It was made better by Beccy Huxtable chipping in as well, another great personality on R1. I wonder what she is up to now? Also, who remembers the Wonder Years? WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
  13. Just to put my two penny worth in.... Clara - I think the judgements are slightly harsh on her. We have to recognise that the 10-1 slot is very music focussed on the Live Lounge and doesn't really have any other features, I think deliberately perhaps? (Aside from the Sara Cox velcro suit game, lolllllllll) Compared to Fearne, Clara is always out at gigs each night and engaging with new music and constantly chatting about that, which is just who you need for a Radio 1 presenter in this slot. Fearne on the other hand, was exceptionally past it and had clearly disengaged with new music a long time ago. She preferred to chat about what cake she has baked last night. I distinctly remember when she came back from maternity leave after Rex and co-hosted the Breakfast Show with Grimmy and they played Daft Punk - Get Lucky, which had been played to death all through the summer (she came back in Sept). She said after the record had finished that it was the first time she had heard it and I was absolutely astounded! Alice - I think she is actually one of the funniest people on Radio 1, if not the funniest. She has the driest, most sarcastic humour and I think she is absolutely hilarious. Similar humour to Matt Edmondson so I wouldn't mind if either of them took over on a weekday slot, they are both very deserving. They both know that they are never going to be tastemakers for the next Mercury awards, but they are fantastic presenters for a youth audience. Adele - I think her move to Radio 1 was very well deserved. I only get to hear her if I work nights but always hear on the 6:45am chat with Grimmy. She always has a lovely warm chat with Grimmy and its clear that they get on very well. The times I do hear her early show I think she is really great actually, and not that it is hard, but such a vast improvement on Gemma Cairney!
