    The best radio is when the whole Radio 1 Family comes together, I think! It's why I love shows when all of the DJs come on and get a bit of freedom. Non-Innuendo Bingo with Greg James during the LOLathon was one of my favourite bits of radio ever (Chris Sawyer producing again), and I even enjoyed Fearne Cotton's last show, even though I didn't particularly gravitate towards her show normally (except the Versus segments with Zane Lowe).
    It's why I want Real Or No Real back! (Scott, Chris and Greg laughing about Bruce Forsyth being older than cubed ice , etc.)

    I think it's the first time in a long while that I'm waiting for the songs to be played, because I'm so glued to the radio that I can't even go to the bathroom.

    This is so brilliant. Grimmy's now saying he's packed 6 T-Shirts for this. And they have sleeping bags with them.

    That's true, it was a great show that had an amazing run. There's always catch-up and the podcast. And if you really miss the old show, there's a few on www.radio1archive.blogspot.com and I'll keep adding more when I have time.

    I'm not good with changes and all these features that Greg's going to bring back this week just make me quite weepy.

    I love listening to R1 in the afternoons, both Scott and Greg make all the woes of the day disappear with their kindness and silliness. I know that Breakfast Show is massive and Greg deserves doing it, but at the same time, can't help but feeling quite sad. I won't be able to listen to Greg everyday, as I am now. And not having Chris Smith 'with the news' on with Greg isn't helping at all. So it's all really bittersweet for me.

    I think this is gonna be a really good week on Greg's show - he's bringing back loads of old features. So far today we've had Count the Cocks and What Is This Song In Panpipes with Chris Smith, and and he's doing Wronguns as well.

    Maybe I'm overreacting but my excitement about the new show has just dropped significantly. Very poor decision. 
    I think it's clear we won't be getting the breakfast show we're hoping for.

    As much as I agree that Greg and Chris belong together as they always create great radio, I think its definitely an age thing why theyre being ‘broke up’.
    It might just be me, but I think a lot of the features and radio that involves both Greg and Chris together seems to cater more to an older audience. Things such as the Mayor of Where, as crazy as it may seem, most teenagers probably dont even understand what a mayor is! 
    They seem to have that ‘witty’ humour what would appeal to an older listener compared to when Greg is with other presenters or guests (although I’m firmly in their target audience and think greg and chris work great together, but then I am a radio geek), so maybe its just another case of Radio 1 breaking it up so that Greg can appeal more to the TA, although I do agree its a shame considering what Chris has brought to the show in the past and their friendship! Greg must not be happy about this.

    That would be good but I'm not sure how likely it is - if they want it to be fresher when he starts the new show, the might as well just give Greg two months off. But I hope this is true. Alternatively, maybe it's just a case of Newsbeat rotas or staff cuts meaning he's not free to spend as much time in the studio away from his proper job as he used to be, but if he's the breakfast newsreader that could free him up.
    I'm currently listening back to an old Greg show from 2014, back when they had Chris Smith doing Rage with him every week instead of a guest, and god it was brilliant. Those two are brilliant together.

    Ah, the old Wednesday night Matt Edmondson Show. I miss it too, it was the first radio show that I made sure that I didn't miss each week. Still one of the best things I've ever heard.
    Dev has been sounding good covering the 8th recently – still entertaining without the I-want-the-whole-universe-to-hear-me shouting. He makes the show much more listenable.

    Oh yes*, I love all of these, but couldn't name them all even if I tried. I can add one though: the fake BBC Three promos which always sounded real for a few moments, and these "shows" were always hosted by the same "former Atomic Kitten member", that was where I always lost it. Saved a few episodes back then, I might give them a listen when I can.
    *YAAAAAAASS!

    So has anyone listened much today? I heard a bit of Dev and Alice, who I do like a lot, more than Grimmy, but it just didn't sound quite right - it's a weekend breakfast show, which is obvious because that's the point of the weekend starting early, but weekday breakfast shows are a completely different beast to their weekend counterparts. 
    Weekday breakfast shows need to feel a lot more topical and "of the day", whereas weekend breakfast shows are mostly for people travelling or finishing up on overnights. They can feel a bit more timeless, but when you have a timeless weekend breakfast show on a weekday, it doesn't quite work. That's before you get into the whole "woooo it's the weekend" thing whilst Susan, 29 from Northampton is getting ready to go to her job as a middle manager at a call centre. Or something like that. Although Dev and Alice did acknowledge that.
    Didn't hear Maya (nothing but respect for MY mid-mornings presenter, James. O'Brien) but I did see in the chatbox that the greatest hits stopped after 11. What stupidity. Although not too many complaints from me that they're not having too much more Greatest Hits. Should've been Jordan though, he could do with a less restrictive format. 
    As for Matt and Molly, I didn't hear them today either but I like them and I feel like Matt's act is the one that translates best to weekdays - not to mention the fact that he's had a lot of weekday experience covering that timeslot over the years, so he knows what he's doing. 
    But Scott on the chart is just great, I'm gonna miss having an extra day of show content but at least that awful Maya Jama arrangement is over. 
    The trails are pretty good too, I must admit. Especially the one where Alice Levine is the Queen.
    Will it last? I'm not sure yet. But even if it's a dismal failure Ben Cooper would rather drive the figures into the ground before admitting he got it wrong.

    "We'll cobble something together".
    Not to forget Gary the Psychic Moth, Funty the Fun Time Puppet Pal, Warwick Hunt (the BBC's Head of Editorial Compliance), Peter Spendthrift (Radio 1's original Money Saving Expert) and Tim the Twitter Trending Expert. Plus Matt's Rich Uncle Alan, Doc Beige and Taio Cruz's secret diary. It was only one hour once a week for 18 months, and yet it had so many memorable moments.
    It would really suit the 3am comedy slot, they should bring it back.

    Agreed, I'd love it. But even at the time Moyles's jingles were totally out of whack with the rest of the station - you had his classical Morning Movie stuff alongside the Pure Tonic RA-DI-OH-ONE stuff and it sounded very disjointed. Now Radio 1 sounds slicker than ever, I can't see them returning to cheesy jingles.
    Maybe - if they can find a way to do it that doesn't sound naff and dated - they might bring back sung jingles. But I wouldn't hold my breath, like Ben, I reckon it'll basically be new versions in the same style as now. 
    Remember when it was actual news that they were getting rid of sung jingles? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-19255742

    I wondered the same, but I doubt they'd let that happen - it would be too inconsistent & backwards now. I reckon the audio imaging will be pretty similar to current.

    Hopefully Greg pulled an "I'll only go if Chris Smith comes with me". Maybe I'm wrong, but I feel like I remember Moyles doing something similar about someone, although I can't remember who.

    OohErr got a reaction from bensteele in Grimmy beats blackburn   
    I think I've mentioned this before, but his show just doesn't deserve to have lasted this long. It doesn't deserve to be up there with the greats. It just doesn't. It doesn't hold a candle to The Chris Moyles Show. It was quite good at first as well, the first two or three years managed to be different to Moyles but still relatively entertaining. But by 2015 it had run it's course. I would've preferred it if Greg had got breakfast in 2012 anyway. 
    Did Grimmy mark it on his show otherwise? I remember Moyles did a week long tour when he beat Blackburn's record, although back then he was becoming longest serving, not second longest.

    Based on what I can work out from the descriptions on the schedules on the Radio 1 website, no, although this is partly guesswork.
    2008: Chris Moyles, not sure where
    2009: Scott, not sure where
    2010: Chris Moyles, live from Bangor
    2011: Chris Moyles, live from Cumbria
    2012: Chris Moyles, Hackney Weekend so in the studio as normal
    2013: Grimmy, live from Northern Ireland
    2014: Grimmy, not sure where
    2016: Grimmy, in the studio
    2017: Grimmy, probably live from Hull (because Adele and Clara were that day)
    Speaking of genre diversity, am I right in saying there was no In New Music We Trust/Where It Begins stage this year?
    And one more thing: is there a video anywhere of Scott and Chris doing live Bangers on stage? It was just mentioned on air.
