  1. So it’s been talked about since Last Summer... Scott seemed to hype it up a lot so unsure if it’s just a lolathon ?
  2. I'm actually a bit gutted she's leaving. She's improved massively in the last 2-2.5 years she's been on Radio 1. Whilst still not perfect, she appealed to a certain group of listeners and brought them to Radio 1, the BBC Sounds statistics prove just that! As much as I like Jordan, I don't think he's quite ready for Drive full time just yet. I think give him Friday-Sunday on a permanent basis for a while to get him into the routine of constantly doing 3 shows a week, then a potential switch for Jordan and Grimmy in the future. Although I get the feeling Grimmy might leave rather than go to
  3. * MONTAGE ALERT * Admittedly I'm a few months late with this one, but here's The Sound of "The One" - 2019 Edition! https://www.dropbox.com/s/g8qqpuct8tkmxtp/The Sound of The One - BBC Radio 1 2019.mp3?dl=0 This one is very "One-tro" heavy as I felt they were on top form last year. I've already made a start on 2020, so that might one get posted on time ?!
  4. I don't think it's time for a complete new one as I think this and the one previous are the best in a while, but I feel a slight refresh is required!
  5. All day! Newsbeat Simulcasted across R1, 1X and AN all day today, including breakfast!
  6. For anyone interested, a rough cut of the Asian Network Newsbeat opener from today! https://www.dropbox.com/s/ly7e6e2c7od8bik/2020 Asian Network Newsbeat In Ramp.mp3?dl=0
  7. You're talking about Beth! From memory she works elsewhere in the BBC and so is easy to pull in when they need her. The main station voices who you hear in all the One-tros and IDs etc are Matt, Lewis, Georgia and Rachelle! And of course there's the BBC Sounds VO on the TOH jingle, but I'm not sure who that is!
  8. Here is the TOH in question, I've also added a Shotgun to the end to spruce it up a little! https://www.dropbox.com/s/ol9azlbwvs0xpwi/BBC Sounds TOH - Radio 1 2019.mp3?dl=0
  9. I have a couple of bits on top of that, such as the Headlines bed and the 1Xtra intro, but that's about it. Does seem very difficult to get hold of. I messaged Dan once regarding the old 2015 package as I don't have any of that one, as that was quite a large jingle package for newsbeat, so many different beds that only saw the light of day once or twice. Never had a response. But in fairness, he's probably really busy producing etc!
  10. Who else has heard the new TOH jingle that’s been played since Saturday. It sounds awful. It’s been the same jingle every time I’ve heard it, and the segues into the Power Intros just don’t work. I think I’ve heard 2 that sounded alright. There’s no need for that on R1, but if it had to have a place it should be on the News Ramp like the old days (Digital FM Online, This, is Radio 1!) What’s your thoughts?
  11. That's his 1-4 show, He didn't start Drive till April 2012. Also the jingle package in use is still the Pure Tonic Ra-Di-O ONE. Pure Jingles started when Greg moved to drive!
  12. Yeah I meant D, Must have pressed B because it was after A ?‍♂️
  13. There are 6 studios shared with R1, 1Xtra and Asian Network. 82A and B are the 2 bigger studios and are mainly used by Radio 1 as that is the flagship station out of the 3, but another big reason? The Live Lounge! 82A Can't be used to broadcast during a Live Lounge because all the equipment for the LL (Such as the mixing desk etc) is in 82A, and as such the studio is full of the Tech Ops who are mixing and controlling the LL. Clara (and Fearne when she was there) always does her show from 82B. On the days when 1Xtra had a LL and R1 didn't Trevor would be in 82B and Fearne would be in one of th
  14. The whole of the BBC (TV, Radio etc) uses something called BNCS (Broadcast Network Control System). I believe it was in house designed by the BBC R&D Dept. This allows any studio across the whole of the BBC (From London to Cardiff to Salford etc) to take over any network (R1, R2, R5Live as examples), or route sources into their studio from anywhere in the BBC, including on the OB Vans. A good current example of this is Life Hacks which now comes from Media City in Salford instead of NBH. The studio at Media City isn't faded up in a studio at NBH, as they are actually in control of the R
