  1. A local paper is reporting the council have approved Radio 1's Big Weekend in Dundee. https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/news/local/dundee/1077908/exclusive-huge-event-for-dundee-as-bbc-radio-1-big-weekend-returns-to-city/
  2. I forgot that was a thing! Wasn't long before the show got bumped to 1pm, don't think it was the strongest thing they ever did. Even Scott Mills: The Musical is still online somewhere. Is the R1 Movie not in the archive on here?
  3. Scott Mills doing a handover with Colin Murray - it's like it's 2007 again.
  4. I'm listening! Fair few sport references already, that really funny rugby player was on who was on the Radio 1 slow last week and Vicky Pattison is the guest monitoring the messages. Happy to be getting my fifth podcast of the week back though, and great to hear them without the constraints of the Radio 1 format.
  5. Blimey! That is unexpected. Although she was on Big Brother, yeeaaaars ago. Like, before she was even on Galaxy.
  6. Still on Google podcasts as far as I can tell: https://podcasts.google.com/?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9uZXR3b3JrLmFic29sdXRlcmFkaW8uY28udWsvY29yZS9wb2RjYXN0cy9yc3MucGhwP25hbWU9b2Nvbm5lbGw
  7. I could be wrong here, but it's possible that his Nation show is voicetracked, so it could be done from anywhere. I'm not sure Nation even have studios.
  8. That's an interesting suggestion - sport is generally something you don't hear much about on Radio 1, outside of breakfast news. I wonder if it would just be too much of a risk, given that for a lot of people, sport is just a turn off. Still, I think it's something Radio 1 could do very well, particularly coverage of women's sports.
  9. Wow! Didn't see this one coming. How interesting - Mills on a talk station. Hope there's a podcast, I'm excited to hear how it sounds. And he'll be doing SEVEN days a week on-air for a few weeks - Show Monday-Thursday, Chart on Friday, 5Live on Saturday and Radio 2 on Sunday. Impressive. Shame for Geoff Lloyd who'd been covering that slot though, assumed he was gonna get it permanently. Could also suggest it gears him up for a full time move to Radio 2 without Chris, this way they get to stay together once a week.
  10. I also imagine certain producers might be quite protective of their work - either because they don't want to give it out for free, or aren't legally allowed to in case it ends up on some internet station that don't have the rights to use them. I'm sure some are lovely and willing to indulge us, but probably not all. Also they're busy, when you're freelance time is money.
  11. Ha! Probably the same two I've sent you both. Dan Mumford made this one, and he's never put any demos out there, so short of getting someone who works at R1 to leak it or asking him personally, not sure how else to get it.
  12. Haven't got round to replying to your PM yet but I have a few things you're after, I have a fair bit of 2008, 2011 and 2015. The stuff from the early to mid naughties seems harder to track down, I've been trying for ages, but I have bits and pieces. As for the Music4 website, I don't think anybody will be getting back to you any time soon... https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5054455/Former-Radio-1-producer-guilty-child-sex-charges.html
  13. It's politics - the BBC has to contract out a percentage of its programmes to private production companies (like Wisebuddah, Audio Always who do Life Hacks, etc) because of concerns it had an unfair competitive advantage. The quota was upped a couple of years ago if I remember. Means licence fee payers cash gets handed over to for-profit companies/spent more efficiently depending on how you see it.
  14. It's interesting actually, maybe I'm just remembering wrong but at the time, although he was controversial generally, amongst Radio 1 fans Moyles was universally popular. But as time has passed since the show ended, the collective memory of it seems to have changed and it's treated like an embarrassing relic. For me the show was the thing that made me fall in love with radio, it was everything a breakfast show should be and I think Lee has it right when he uses the word "magic" to describe what Chris created. But Toby also has a valid point when he mentions the racist and homophobic incidents, and as a huge fan of the show I'm not really sure how to reconcile the two. What is clear though is that Chris has been on a huge journey in recent years, maybe sped up by friends like Aled and Hirsty, and it's hard to believe when you hear some of the things he's come out with recently that he's the same guy who used the word "gay" in a derogatory way and constantly perved over female guests/team members. I'd expect and hope he looks back on the way he used to be and cringes - I read his book recently and whilst fascinating, it made for some pretty uncomfortable reading in parts. I guess the show has to be looked back on, like most things, as a product of its time, and appreciate the things that made it so brilliant and compelling whilst acknowledging the aspects that were problematic.
