  1. I would hope the ‘Anthems’ or classic tracks they play during these three hours are proper classic tracks. My local radio station has a show of a similar theme and, today, played Ed Sheeran’s ‘Castle on the Hill’, while labelling it a throwback. It is THREE (3) years old...
  2. I just don't see the need for the for the 10am-11am anthems slot or the party anthems 3pm-4pm on a Friday. It feels like a complete waste of four hours of radio, and as I have said, Jordan and Dev could have easily been given three hour slots each across their days instead of this.
  3. Agree with your statement about getting rid of the party anthems. In addition, they could have really got rid of Radio 1 Anthems too to give Jordan and Dev three hours each. Yes, it wouldn't line up with the daytime schedule, but it's better than a needless pre-record.
  4. This is half R1 and half Kiss (because that’s what my friend listens to), but “God’s Plan” by Drake has become unlistenable for me now.
  5. As much as I'd love it to be in Aberdeen (not that I'm bias!), I don't think there's anywhere really suitable in the city.
  6. I'm Roy Keane (he says having next to no knowledge of football).
  7. I am really looking forward to hearing Greg's new show. Like the Buzzfeed article says, Greg has always put listeners first and always adapted his content to suit the audience. Something which you could say Grimmy failed on because he was so reliant on celeb guests/pals for contribution - that's why the days they didn't have guests on, the breakfast show sounded really stale.
  8. I'm probably late this debate/party, but why on earth have R1 got Greg starting a week on Monday and Nick not starting until 3rd September? Surely it would have made sense to end both shows at the same time and start them at the same time?
  9. Newsbeat has just tweeted a pic of the whole team, moments after Chris' last broadcast. Greg was there too. They are actual friendship goals!
  10. I am comforted by the fact he's just moving behind the scenes 'for a bit' (I hope he gets behind the mic soon!), but it's also a huge loss.
  11. I wondered how long it would take for someone to say this. Well played!
  12. I really hope, in the final minute of Newsbeat, Chris gets joined by Greg (even though he's on leave) and says something like "Today is my last day... for a few weeks, then I'll be back with Greg in September. SURPRISE!"
  13. He's probably been tied up with all this Brexit stuff (and other things). I hope he'll still be on the podcast!
  14. The flirtatiousness between Matt Fincham and ShowBot was hysterical at times. Made me realise just how genius Matt Fincham was as a producer.
  15. I think Grimmy finally had enough with constant press negativity and decided to call it quits. Each time the RAJAR's were released, he had the backing of Ben Cooper, so I don't think he was forced out in the way Chris Moyles was. As for Greg's podcast, he has confirmed that is transferring across to breakfast with him which I am relieved about!
  16. For those who may miss this announcement on the Chatbox, it has been announced this morning that Grimmy is leaving the breakfast show in September after 6 years. Greg will replace him and Grimmy will go to Drivetime.

  17. I don't think it's at all weird. I think it's quite natural - especially if you listen to them every day and have done so for years. They share so much of their lives and you become invested; look at when Chris Stark announced he was getting married. That was a huge moment for me as a listener as I have listened to Scott and Chris for years - from the Tap End days and the stag dos/holidays in Kavos to this big thing.
  18. Indeed she is not! It took me a while to warm to Alice, but I genuinely think she is a great broadcaster. I don't think I'll warm to Maya in the same way, if at all.
  19. So today, I downloaded the podcast to hear Chris' announcement in full and completely agree with comments made on this forum (I'm looking at you, OohErr ) about Maya Jama's irrelevance on the show. I should add that this was the first time I downloaded the Friday podcast since she started on the show. She added a lot unnecessary comments, especially during Steve Holden's entertainment news. He meant to say Jurassic World, but said Jurassic Park and Maya chips in with 'different'. WHAT WAS THE POINT? SHUT UP! I, for one, will be glad when the schedules change and the show will be Maya-less. On a side note, because Scott will be doing the chart, will the Chart Update move to Mondays 3:30pm-4pm and that will mean 30 minutes less of Greatest Hits? I hope so!
  20. Will probably be Jordan. It is a bank holiday on the 28th (or at least it is here in Scotland).
  21. One week on and this still appears to be the case. Scott does 2, a wee 'Hiya', then 2 then his first proper link around 1:15pm (depending on lengths of songs) so I don't think it's too much to worry about.
  22. How strange. The name of Wednesday's podcast has changed since I downloaded it on Wednesday night. When I downloaded it, it was called 'More First Date Messages', but now (Friday morning), it has been renamed 'What Do Popstars Do When They're Not Making Music?'
