  1. The Christmas Day schedule was great this year, I loved every show as they all felt very fun and warm.
  2. Interesting that some brief credits were read out at the end of Newsbeat a moment ago
  3. I’m enjoying Dean’s show, it’s pretty good so far, he sounds perfect for the time of day
  4. Complete The Year involves a contestant answering 12 questions, one for each month of a pre determined year, with the questions getting harder as the game progresses and the contestant has to “Complete The Year” by getting 12 correct answers. I think it’s a great concept
  5. very interesting, if it’s only been scheduled in the last few days I guess management are impressed with the show
  6. I enjoyed Judge Jordan. New game tomorrow - I’ve got a problem - from the description it’s like I’m a celebrity get out of my ear on Saturday night takeaway, Jordan tells Vick what to say on the phone to someone
  7. surprised they actually read that out given it mentioned the C word ?
  8. It’s a perfect fit, she’s always been passionate about new music
  9. An hour in and it’s such a fun listen, Vick and Jordan have great chemistry, the links feel fresh and completely right for 2021, and there’s plenty of listener interaction. It’s a 10/10 from me. I definitely think they will be the next hosts of the breakfast show whenever that may be.
  10. I enjoyed RMC’s first show, it definitely feels like there’s much more fun in the show than previous mid-morning shows on R1.

    Voice notes

    R1 now has an official WhatsApp for shoutouts etc, Greg just revealed just after 9, it’s the studio phone number 03700 100 100
  12. I’m excited for the new era, it feels massive and I think it’ll go very well. I’m most looking forward to drivetime with Vick and Jordan, from what I’ve heard it sounds like it will be a really fun listener-centric show, they’ll have a quiz of some form, a requests feature, and an item called “Going Home Headlines” where listeners can text in about anything they have done earlier in the day and Vick and Jordan will make a mock news bulletin about the listeners. RMC on mid-mornings is an interesting choice but I’m sure it’ll be a very good listen. Clara hosting Future Sounds is a great fit for her, as she has a passion for new music, and the new “Hottest Records of The Week” on Monday nights sounds like a brilliant idea.
  13. I’m excited to hear the first show tomorrow. I have a great feeling it’s going to be very modern and fresh, whilst still retaining the sense of fun that Radio 1 has become known for.
  14. I agree, it makes it easier to promote and stand out from other Radio 1 output
  15. My guess is that the title will be the main vocal on a custom imaging package for the show
  16. BBC Sounds is calling Jordan and Vick’s drive show “Going Home with Vick and Jordan on Radio 1”, that’s going to have a rather long ID then ?
  17. Time flies. I first heard Grimmy when he took over the breakfast show in September 2012, which coincided with me listening to daytime Radio 1 much more than I had done previously. I was initially skeptical, as he was replacing Chris Moyles, who was the DJ that sparked my interest in radio, but over the years, my appreciation of Nick has grown as I've listened more and more and his show is a really enjoyable listen. In retrospect, Grimmy's fresh sound was exactly what Radio 1 needed at the time in order to revitalise the station and put the pulse of modern music culture back into the breakfast show. I'll be sad to see him go, as his time on Radio 1 has soundtracked an important time in my life, but I'm also excited to hear the new era of the station.
  18. Great to hear, Scott’s show is on top form at the moment, the pandemic allowed him to excel at providing a great distraction from the rest of the world.
  19. Last night’s penultimate show was a brilliant listen, with Grimmy and Annie essentially hosting a two hour nostalgia trip. Last show starting in a few minutes, and it really feels like the end of an era, as Annie’s show has introduced me and many many others to loads of new music over the years. I’m sure Clara will do a great job at championing new artists on Radio 1, and I’m excited to hear the new era of the station.
  20. The other similar events in the past took around two days to complete, but this may be longer due to travel time between relevant locations
  21. It was all a trick! Greg has to escape from the campervan, which will travel around the country to find clues hidden in the real world, and therefore I've changed the thread title to reflect this
  22. Woah, this is like the 2020 modified schedule all over again, but at least it means Scott is back on drive (if only for a few weeks), and Grimmy gets extra long shows in his final week on R1, should be very fun!
  23. Greg is on with Scott and Chris talking about it, and repeated what he said on Wednesday’s breakfast show, which is that he won’t know where he is until he opens the blinds live on air each morning
  24. Thought I’d start a thread for this, as there’s not one already and it looks it’ll be a really fun listen.
  25. Greg was hinting at "one final thing with Grimmy" this morning, so I'm definitely hoping hide and seek is on the cards
