Level of Geekiness: Getting started (2/6)



  1. My choice would be Matt and Mollie - best way to help soften the blow of Scott going and already seem popular with the audience. Think they could do great things with that slot. Katie and Dean aren't an established enough duo to take over a slot as big as Scott's I don't think. M&M to afternoons, Katie to Fri-Sun afternoons and Jack on the chart. With Sam & Danni taking over Life Hacks maybe. If it's not Matt and Mollie, it should be RMC. With Katie taking over mid mornings.

    RAJAR Q4 2018

    I agree it's a better marker but Radio 1 is still down year on year. 9.8 million in Q4 2017 down to 9.3 million in Q4 2018.
  3. I think she'd be great on the 10am show if Clara or Maya leave.
  4. Heart have already announced the replacement for Emma - it's Lucy from the Drive show.
  5. Red Nose Day is still 2 months away so it seems bit early for an announcement on that? I could be wrong though and they're planning a major challenge that's worth a big build up
  6. Well Scott has just said it's definitely not Big Weekend or Innuendo Bingo coming back. I'm getting nervous now that it could be what we're all dreading haha
  7. Very interesting move from Radio 1. Quite bold for them to go for big names from the commercial radio world instead of recruiting someone younger and more unknown. Rickie, Melvin and Charlie are clearly ratings winners so I'm sure the show will be a success and they'll probably be able to push the boundaries and do something very different to what they were doing on Kiss.
  8. I think you're reading into it way too much. He's only in the door 5 minutes! Realistically, he's in there at night so has probably only gotten to know the night time DJs properly so far. I've also noticed there's been a lot less of presenters appearing on other people's shows in general recently. You used to have other DJs appearing on Real or no Real with Scott or Rage Against the Answer Machine with Greg but there's much less of that now so kind of difficult for Jack to get exposure like that. I don't think he's comparable with Jordan, who is a daytime DJ and used to always be on during daytime at the weekend as well as covering early breakfast and Drive so there's much more room for crossover with the other presenters and for them to hear him. I doubt a lot of the R1 presenters are listening at 11pm so they might not have heard much of Jack yet.
  9. Mine would be: 1. Scott Mills 2. Greg James 3. Jordan North (when covering shows, not on Greatest Hits) 4. Nick Grimshaw (think his new show is bringing the best out of him) 5. Annie Mac 6. Radio 1's Chillest Show with Phil Taggart 7. Adele Roberts 8. Jack Saunders 9. Katie Thistleton (when covering on her own, not with Cel) 10. Maya Jama
  10. Exactly and she deserves more prominence than the early breakfast show usually gives her. I'd have no objection to Jordan covering Clara whatsoever but Adele is full-time and he only does one show a week usually so R1 probably feel like they have to make her the main cover. I do like getting to hear Adele during the daytimes too, she's a great presenter.
  11. To be fair, it was nothing to do with Steve Holden. If you listen back to that bulletin on 1Xtra, he was there and did the news as normal. It was the R1 outside broadcast technical team that clearly messed up the link back to the Newsbeat studio in London.
  12. It's probably the most revealing interview I've read with him (along with the Guardian one he did). Some new information - Roisin Hastie will be the new newsreader. No massive surprise, I knew it'd be her or Bela Shah as they probably wanted a woman on the team seeing as it'll be Will Foster and Chris Sawyer producing along with Greg. Presume it'll be Steffan Powell or Steve Holden replacing Chris Smith in the afternoons. Very interesting that he kind of implies the production team for his breakfast show jointly decided they wanted a whole new show and didn't want Chris Smith on it. Based on the "we're being separated" comment during the podcast, I'd imagine it was management and the new production team that decided they wanted a new direction for the show without Chris and Greg is just towing that line now. Fair play to him for giving Jordan a push. It's great to see him getting cover for Scott and doing a lot of weekend shows that are more personality-led rather than Greatest Hits but you do feel like Jordan should be getting a full-time gig in a more high profile slot. He has to be a strong contender for Scott's slot when he leaves. I do like that Jordan and Alice were the ones he singled out as the "great talent at R1". They're the two that stand out to me among the weekend presenters as well. I know there are a lot of Dev fans here but I feel like Alice should have that show on her own. Way more personality and potential on her own.
  13. What's happened with Huw Stephens, I wonder? Down to a late night Sunday night slot on R1, gone from 6Music and not covering Annie Mac anymore like he used to sometimes.
  14. Exactly, they're not comparable. Grimmy's still going to be on R1, just at a different time. Same with Greg's show ending - there was no song and dance made about it, just a look back at the best bits over the years. I'd say Grimmy's last week will be similar. Even the announcement that they were swapping was pretty low key.
  15. Greg is the last person it'll be having just been replaced as the show's presenter. I'd say Mistajam will continue to be main cover with Jordan as the back-up.
