    OohErr got a reaction from gjquestion123 in Does anyone know the name of Greg James's opening song from 2015?   
    Seeing as this spambot bumped this thread up, I thought I'd make a montage of a few occasions Greg used the Porter Robinson instrumental to start the show.
    I have the first use of it from the 3rd May 2012, then 23rd July 2012 (Greg's first show after Chris Moyles announced he was leaving, to add context to it), 14th September 2012, 7th January 2012 and the last use of it on 9th May 2014.

    Wow DC. Based on your bio/picture  (and the fact that you've been knocking about on these forums for yeeeeeeears), I always assumed you really were a 50-something man who lived in Iraq. Being 27 and living in the midlands has irreversibly changed my perception of you.

    OohErr got a reaction from bensteele in My thoughts on women on Radio 1   
    Woo, I got a shout out!
    The trouble with Clara is that she's still very commercial radio - she has a personality, but she's used to the format of "two songs, short link with shout outs and trails ahead, two songs", with no content other than the music itself. It's a shame - I feel like she's a wasted potential.
    Alice is a very funny woman - she's clearly a believer that "content is king", but admittedly that content isn't that strong. I don't that's a problem with her specifically though - with good production (as she had when Aled produced her) she could be excellent. I do believe that she is the natural heir to Scott Mills - when he leaves (god forbid), I think she could take over from him and have largely the same style and features, even inherit Chris. Again, potential but not fully realised as of yet.
    I like Adele, but I don't think she's particularly funny or original. She's a very enjoyable listen, and clearly loves radio, but I don't see a bigger future for her after Early Breakfast. Her show is basically a continuation of Dev's run on Early Breakfast with a few of her own features thrown in (that awful Gemma period ignored). Adele is good, but not funny or edgy in the same way Scott, Greg, Matt, Dev or Alice are.
    Annie Mac just exudes cool and I'm surprised how successful she's been in that slot considering she was primarily a dance DJ. Her handovers with Greg are nowhere near as good as Zane's though. On a slightly unrelated note, I listened to Zane for the first time in months the other day and he doesn't sound happy. He's moved away from his old shouty energetic enthusiastic style and now sounds very sombre and bored. Maybe it's just a natural progression for him as he matures, but it's just not the Zane I know. Also, without a handover at the top of his show he has no opportunity to show off how funny he is and how he doesn't always take himself seriously.
    Anyway, those are my views on women (on the radio, that is) and everything else under the sun, it seems.

    I'm not a fan of the current idents. They're so slow and plodding, four voices is too many, one of the voices is godawful and the sound effects don't sound fresh in the slightest. As much as I hate to say this, Capital is sounding a lot slicker at the moment - some fast paced, slick idents (like the New Music Friday ones) would do it a lot of good.

    Yeah, I heard those and they weren't amazing, but I'll let him off cause he's otherwise good. Tell the time, stop calling it "Newsbeat" and you'll be fine.
    Is it now station policy to refer to it as "Newsbeat" and not just "the news"? Everybody seems to do it, bar Dev and Greg. Even Scott does it sometimes now. Can't say I'm a fan - "the news" sounds much more casual.
