    OohErr got a reaction from anothernerd in Saturday sports show on Radio 1   
    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.

    OohErr got a reaction from Jinglefied in Scott and Chris to present new Radio 5 Live show   
    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.

    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.

    OohErr got a reaction from anothernerd in What Radio 1 Presenters do we miss?   
    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.

    OohErr got a reaction from forde52 in Really Geeky studio tech Newsbeat question   
    I have no insider knowledge, but I would assume they wouldn't bother handing over control of the network to the news just for a two minute bulletin - I would guess they just fade up the news studio during the bulletin and down again at the end, with the newsreader or maybe a tech-op pressing the buttons for the bulletin. Not sure about the 15 minute programmes though, could be different although it seems unlikely to me. But bear in mind that all news outside of breakfast is shared between 1 and 1Xtra so everything you described would be doubly complicated (and also means that network news bulletins would never come from the Radio 1 studio, including Chris Smith's old 16:30/17:00 bulletins that you mentioned).
    I would imagine that the presenter's role in this is to hit play on the news in jingle at xx:29:50, fade up the news studio at some point before or during the ramp, then fade down the bed after the newsreader has read the headline and hit play on the main bed with the Newsbeat ID at the start. Less technically capable presenters have struggled with this in the past - notably Maya Jama and Gemma Cairney. Then they just press play on the next song at the end of the bulletin.
    I remember once being told that presenters were discouraged from talking to the newsreaders afterwards in case the 1Xtra presenter had left the news studio faded up and the newsreader's half of the conversation could be heard on there. I think Greg also left the news studio faded up once during a song and little bits of the ents journo speaking could be heard over a song - think it was Sinead Garvan, or maybe even Natalie Jamieson depending on how long ago it was. So merely fading up the news studio seems more likely. 
    I'm not sure how accurate this is, but it seems like it would make sense based on what I know and what I've heard as a listener.

    I recorded a load of Scott mills for this site from 2005-2007. I plan to try and get them up onto my mixcloud but it's gonna take a hell of a long time. I have already got some local radio such as BRMB up on there, and my Mark & Lard collection too. I have so much Scott Mills to get on there though it's outrageous.
     
    Keep your eyes on it all though

    Hello everyone
    Aled here, Head of Programmes at Radio 1. Thank you for all your passion for Scott,  Chris and Radio 1 - the station’s success relies on fans like yourselves caring about radio and what we do and all of us at Radio 1 really appreciate it. 
    Don't worry - I’m not planning on hanging around and cramping your style, I’m trying to get hold of Jono. I’ve used the ‘Contact us’ section but I’ve heard nothing yet, if someone on the board has his contact please ask him to email me. 
    (It’s nothing bad!) 
    Keep up the amazing work everyone, be as critical as you like, I’m sure Scott appreciates it. 
    Thanks,
    Aled.

    OohErr got a reaction from anothernerd in What radio shows/podcasts do you miss?   
    It's funny you say that - literally this week, someone sent me a load of episodes of the Hirsty's Overdose podcast. They're all here (I wouldn't have used Telegram to host them but oh well): https://t.me/hirstysdailydose
    That show was legendary, like you I'm too young to have heard it when it was broadcast (I'm also not from Yorkshire). If you want to hear some breathtaking pre-Sachsgate radio, have a search on YouTube for "Danny Dumps". I'd love to hear more if anyone else has recordings.
    Another show from before my time I'm very keen on - Mark and Lard. And one from my time, The Matt Edmondson Show on Wednesday nights. I've never heard another show like it since.

    For me, theres been loads of great radio- im either too young or i didn't even knew existed or possibly forgetten about 
    The Chris Moyles Show - Obviously one of my all time fav radio shows. The relaxed format was just so different to anything i was used to. Same with Scott's Drivetime show.- I miss Chappers and Beccy and Laura. Chris is good as well.
    Ive been getting quite into a local radio show called "Hirsty's Daily Dose" Though i can only find clips or the odd podcast here or there. From what i have heard it sounded brilliant. Does anyone have any podcasts/shows they can send me? I'd really like to listen some more.
    I also miss both Dev and Matt's weekend shows(before greatest hits). They were brill. Honeslty both were worth waking up for. Not like him and Mollie who seem to be average. But i really do like Dev and Alice. The format is amazing they get on so well. They seem like a perfect match. 
    What shows do you guys miss?

    Annie Mac 7-9pm weekdays for new music.  People always make digs on here about Capital and the like.  Maybe some don't like the music (a lot of the target demo do), maybe you don't like the high rotation (it works for their aim), maybe you don't like the quick links or style (up to you), but none of that means it isn't a very high quality product, incredibly slick, and employs very very talented people, talented in a fast paced, less obvious way than the likes of Radio 1 DJs.  It's not massively my cup of tea, but it's very good at what it does.

    OohErr got a reaction from anothernerd in Radio 1 Breakfast with Greg James - First Thoughts   
    Been seeing a few quotes on Twitter today from a speech Greg gave at some European Radio Conference. To summarise, Greg really doubling down on the whole "the listeners are more interesting than me so I make it about them" thing.
    Honestly, I can't say I agree. If that's the case then anyone could be doing the show - the reason Greg does it is because listeners are interested in him and his stories. He never used to do that shtick in the afternoons - it was HIS show, so I don't know where the whole modesty thing comes from. It's almost like he's embarassed to be there. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy listener's stories when they're funny and weird like on Scott's show, but not when they're the main attraction. I DO want to hear banter between presenters and stories from their own lives, that's why I listen - I've built up that relationship with the presenter over the years.
    I'm really sad about how little Greg's breakfast show does for me, I'd wanted him to get the gig for years and I really wanted to like the show but whenever I listen I just get fed up with how safe it is. And I used to love his afternoon show with Chris Smith. Haven't listened for months, although with local breakfast shows on Capital ending I'm not sure where I'll end up. Danny Mylo on Pulse 1 in West Yorkshire does a good show. Maybe I'll come back to Greg at some point, but for now I've gone right off.
