  1. It’s been a fantastic year for Greg and for Breakfast for the station since the Moyles era began. This morning was fun. He got Beth, the voiceover girl on the jingles, to come on live and do some listener-requested announcers. I quickly noted her name (also short for Elizabeth) and Google’d her up. It was a bit tricky as I had to listen to a podcast about how they made the jingles last year, it didn’t include Beth. But I have found the following for Elizabeth Lishmund which I believe is her: Website - https://www.bethlishmund.com/ Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/bettylish/ It’s nice to finally put a face and name to the jingle. If I’m wrong please let me know.
  2. Has anyone noticed recently how Scott Mills is more open on air about his sexuality? For years he used to say that he “doesn’t have much luck with the ladies.” But now now he sometimes mentions his boyfriend and I think it’s great how he doesn’t hold back like has has done over the years. Everyone knows Scott is gay and when he revealed it many years ago, it didn’t change a thing for him working at Radio 1. Good on him. 👊
  3. Does anyone know where I can find the theme tune music for Greg James’ a Ten Minute Takeover? I want the 30 secound countdown “pips” and also lovely soft music you hear playing when he’s choosing the tracks.
  4. The last 2 weeks have been Greg’s first major time off since taking over Breakfast last year, and we’ve heard Matt and Mollie doing a good job sitting in for him. But what about Scott and the tradition of him taking on Breakfast when the main man is away...? As we know that happened under Moyles and Grimmy, but is it now different under Greg?
  5. I started listening sometime from Monday 18th July 2011. Amy Winehouse died on Saturday 23rd and when this news broke I had only been listening a few days. The way I switched was random - I was listening to Magic 105.4 for months and one evening whilst driving home I got bored and hit a random preset on the radio which happened to be R1. I thought “let’s listen to R1 for a few days” and soon realised I had been missing out on great chart music, new music and fantastic club anthems. Intending to change to another random station soon, I realised I couldn’t because I was hooked. And since then my radio has stayed tuned to R1. I can even remember a song I was listening to within an hour of changing - Barbara Streisand by Duck Sauce.
  6. This week is the only week I’ve properly listened to Grimmy’s new show. Within an hour I was bored of him. Same old Grimmy, same voice, without any other people in the studio. Greg has triumphed. Grimmy has flopped. It’s the truth. Grimmy is only in this slot because the producers are keeping an eye on his performance. I give it 2 years, and that’s being lucky.
  7. 2 mess ups today on Newsbeat... 8:30 this morning on R1 Breakfast with the headline bed 3 times. 2:30 this afternoon on Scott’s show when Steve Holden wasn’t ready...Scott and Chris were trying to get to the bottom of what happened and I’m not actually sure what went wrong here. After the mess up on 25th August and today’s errors, it got me thinking. Since Chris Smith left last month, has there been some changes behind the scenes as to who does what in Newsbeat? Things have gone from smooth to bumpy since then.
  8. I’ll try not to waffle on here and repeat what everyone else has said, but it is without doubt yesterday’s first show was the greatest breakfast show done in years. Clean, fresh, sharp, fun, listener-focused and above all, a fantastic presenter behind that mic. Greg smashed it, this is a bloke who couldn’t! My opinion of him has rocketed in the last few years. Back in 2011 when I started listening to a Radio 1 he was on the 1 to 4 slot and I wasn’t overall keen. On today’s second show my enjoyment continued, and I’m sure it will everyday he’s on the air. Unfortunately I didn’t get to listen to the live start yesterday at 6:33, but thank goodness for iPlayer. I’m glad to see they’ve moved away from the zoo format. Greg doesn’t suit this and keeping him on his own is s good idea. A sidekick every so often is a good one, and yesterday Joe Lycett was actually good, even though I can’t stand him. Roisin Hastie is a good choice for Newsbeat, she’s clear and easy to understand. I love the branding so much. Clean, fresh, imaginative. Yes, the ambient background music used when he’s selecting a song after the countdown is quite cool too. Grimmy had a fine run on the show but it turned sour some 3 years into his 6 year reign. Ben Cooper gave him a big task at his start, he achieved that but Radio 1 has slightly changed in 6 years. Out of Moyles, a Grimmy and Greg’s starts to their shows, they’re all different. Greg has just pissed all over Grimmy’s fire and bought back a huge chunk of listeners who deserted Grimmy in his first year. Greg is a talented bloke going places - it’s been proven on Sounds Like Friday Night on BBC1. Loving it all.
  9. Scott’s chart show, 20th July into 5:45 Newsbeat has a decent quality recording with good listening volumes to it. I’m currently trying to find a iPlayer to mp3 ripper so if anyone knows of a decent one please let me know, it’s this show I want to rip and only has until Saturday before it disappears off iPlayer!
  10. Please can someone recommend a good iPlayer to mp3 ripper? The show I want to rip and cut down only has until Saturday on iPlayer.
  11. He needs to get Deborah Meaden on. Long overdue!
  12. From yesterday’s Evening Standard: There’s a new jingle in the works too: “The first cut was too laddy, we’ve come up with a more mischievous melody.” Anything has got to to be better than the crap jingles that replaced the original Grimmy ones when he started in 2012. Greg is bound to have some input on his own theme, he’s a nerd! Its becoming more evident that Grimmy was pushed out due to falling listening figures. Something had to give. I don’t usually listen to media hype but this is one they’ve got spot on. He will be rubbish at drive time and won’t last long, I’m certain of that.
  13. The “Show” has been dropped and so Greg’s new show is just Radio 1 Breakfast With Greg James. Crap.
  14. Chris leaving is sad news. I’m in mourning. He can’t go! He IS Newsbeat. I can understand Tina going after all the online stuff that’s been floating around recently, but a Chris to?! Noooooooo! 2 of the best presenters gone. No offence to the others but if they haven’t got annoying accents they can’t fade in the jingle with their intro headline properly. Grinds my gears that latter one...
  15. On Monday 13th August, Scott is taking the ropes, probably until Greg takes over. On the schedule it says “Scott and Chrus sit in for Grimmy.” But by then, Grimmy is gone.
