  1. I don't think it was a sacking. Radio 1 have just retweeted the Press Office tweet and I wouldn't have thought they would have wanted publicity of a sacking in such a way.
  2. Correct. In the late 80s/early 90s, there were hourly news updates from 6:30am-8:30pm then at 10:30pm and 12:30am on weekdays, along with the 15 minute programmes.
  3. I am still confused as to why they've reverted back to 2 hour evening shows. I thought the whole point of 3 hour shows was to save money?
  4. Shame that Jordan is still on the subs bench for now.
  5. UPDATE: The R1 official press release confirms that The Surgery and Radio 1 Stories/Documentaries will be incorporated into the revamped 4pm-7pm Sunday show.
  6. I can't remember when the Specialist Chart was introduced but, in my opinion, maybe it's a good thing that it's being dropped. There are too many charts on the station as it is - The Official Chart on a Friday, Dance Chart on a Saturday (which will probably be dropped after Danny moves to Fridays) and Cel's 'Most Played on R1' chart on a Sunday. Phil does a lot of work for VEVO so it's not like he'll be sitting around waiting for Sunday at 10pm to roll around. Perhaps we'll see more of him doing weekend cover, especially if Jordan does get the 4pm-7pm on a Saturday.
  7. There has been no official press release yet, either by the BBC Press Office or the R1 press office – just an article on Newsbeat’s website. Even then it is still patchy. Charlie’s new show starts on Monday 6th November. MistaJam will replace Charlie on 1Xtra drive, but no word on Jam’s replacement. There is mention of a new show for DJ Target but does not give a time slot. You are correct in saying that Kan D Man and DJ Limelight will present a show together on Sundays between 1am and 3am. This part replaces Target’s current show. Cel and Katie will present on Sundays between 4pm and 7pm. The new show will be called ‘Life Hacks’ – to me, it suggests that The Surgery will be either dropped or merged into this new show somewhat. R1 will also launch three new entertainment and music podcasts. These will be broadcast between 3am-4am on Wednesday-Friday mornings. The 4pm-7pm slot on Saturdays is still vacant (I would LOVE Jordan North to be given a shot at this!). If he doesn’t, it is a huge shame as he is brilliant. Phil Taggart loses out again!
  8. Didn't know that Whitney Houston was a cover presenter for Simon Bates!
  9. He's brilliant! The northern wit too just tops it off. The R1 Greatest Hits show is SO good!
  10. Dev was unavailable to cover as he was in Majorica (I think!). Yasser covered his weekend show. Mistajam was much better than Cel Spellman!
  11. Mistajam was covering Greg last Thursday and Friday because Greg and Chris Smith were doing signings of their newly released children's book 'Kid Normal' - not because of summer mix advert filming. Scott and Greg appeared to film their pieces in the morning and Grimmy and Clara in the afternoon.
  12. I have done a little research and, since the start of this year, Matt has had five full weekends off and four half weekends off (half meaning does one out of two days). Does anyone else think holiday entitlement is too generous? For example, Clara does five shows a week at almost three hours long and still manages to fit other commitments around that.
  13. It's unlikely but if he does, can Matt be the first one out the door and replace him with somebody who actually bothers to do his contracted hours?
  14. Surely Diane Abbott would present Radio 1 Stories: Music by Numbers?
  15. Katie Thistleton is presenting the Surgery next Wednesday but I have no idea if she is the permanent replacement.
  16. Talk about low-key exit! No idea who will replace her but I bet we will know before 10pm.
  17. Ready Steady Cook.... WHOOOOOOoooOOOOOooooOOOOoooOOO!
  18. When all of the usual breakfast team is off on holiday, yes, all of Scott's team move to breakfast and all of Matt's would move into Scott's show for the period of time that they cover but this is not always the case. However, if Scott covers breakfast when Grimmy is off sick or has the odd day off (usually Monday or Friday), the breakfast team will remain unchanged (i.e. Fiona as AP, Tina as newsreader etc) as will Scott's team in the afternoon.
  19. Most of the time when Alice plays, it is live because, as you said, she's in during the week preparing for her shows. As for other pre-recorded stuff, almost all the weekend interviews are pre-recorded. With Scott's show, things like the Who game and some listener stories (especially when you see Scott's/Chris' pleas on Twitter) are done prior to the show. Other listener's stories can be entirely live though.
  21. Great WHOOOOO! British Home Stores... WHOOOOoooooOOOOOOOoooOOOO! (Too soon?).
  22. It would be a MASSIVE mistake if the bosses went out of their way to remove Mills from Radio 1. He is by far the best DJ on the station.
  23. I remember that too. Out of all the comedians they could have picked to get in, the producers chose this absolute salad. Seemed like an odd choice of guest considering they were so vocal in their dislike of him.
