  1. Pleased for Aled at this news. I didn’t know he’d been in charge since before last Christmas, they kept it quiet! Although I’m sure I read something last year about Ben Cooper possibly moving on. Aled has worked his way up the ranks over the years and he deserves this. I heard Ben Cooper lost out on a popular music role within the BBC and it was awarded to a lady. And then he possibly got the hump with the Beeb and decided to leave.
  2. I hate to say it but you’re right. Scott is slowly drifting away from the station. It’s sad but he is ogling the same way as Sara Cox and Jo Whiley.
  3. I’m sorry to see Alice leave. She’s been a fantastic presenter, and since starting with late night shows, has risen well to deserve the slots she does. Her show with Dev has never been the best, mainly because of Dev and the character that he sometimes portrays (duos just haven’t worked IMO). I haven’t listened to the station much lately, and I read on Facebook that her tone of voice lately gives a vibe that she just doesn’t want to be there anymore. Is this true, would anyone agree? During her time at the station she hasn’t exactly been boosted her to a slot where she could excel in it.
  4. Thanks for that, I have come across that in the past but am looking to find the tracks as seperate pieces, to either stream or download. If anyone knows where this can be found or has any content, please let me know.
  5. 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/
  6. 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. ?
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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 th
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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 list
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. He needs to get Deborah Meaden on. Long overdue!
  16. 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 tha
  17. The “Show” has been dropped and so Greg’s new show is just Radio 1 Breakfast With Greg James. Crap.
  18. 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...
  19. 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.
  20. I think it’s all being blown out of proportion about Tina leaving. “We’ve only” could mean “we” the current Breakfast team. Doesn’t mean to say she’s going.
  21. There’s a lot of speculation here as to whether Grimmy has been asked to leave or whether it was his own decision. But nobody has raised the point about the amount of sickies he has pulled in his time as host. Quite a number! I don’t think I’ve ever known a presenter of any radio station to ever pull as many as he did. I sometimes question whether some were genuine, and maybe Cooper got fed up with it and decided to take him off breakfast. As for Tina staying on breakfast, I’d like that. I can’t see Chris leaping over from his current slot. Tina staying on in 2012 was great and she is doi
  22. Today's announcement of Nick Grimshaw's departure from the breakfast show is one that has been a long time coming. Some may say it's overdue. Grimmy has had a good run in the last 6 years and considering Moyles was at the helm for 8 years, a change in host to the breakfast show was definitely on it's way, even if it happened in 2019 or 2020. Like many others I was never completely happy when Grimmy took over but within the first year I started to enjoy it more. And it's only been in the last couple of years that I feel his show has been going downhill. So for me, today's news of his depa
  23. Ben Cooper needs to have his head checked. These changes must be the most ridiculous I’ve ever heard of in nearly 7 years as a station listener. Greg James was so happy to get the chart duties in 2015, but less than 3 years later it’s being swept from underneath his feet. Recently, his absence on Friday’s are mainly due to his commitment to Sounds Like Friday Night and his possible movement to TV work. Is there a back door open? I’m just speculating here, but on the other hand MistaJam must be pissed about not getting chart duties anymore! He tore it up and did well. Scott taking ove
  24. Does anyone know the date of Scott's anniversary? Its true the station does have a problem. I've enjoyed Adele sitting in for Clara these last 2 weeks, a lot more chirpy and professional. Clara taking over from Fearne was an odd decision, despite what Ben Cooper says about giving upcoming 1Xtra presenters a chance. I've always thought Alice Levine has progressed quick, she is well overdue a regular weekday slot if she wants it. Grimmy's show has been going 5 years in September and I can't see it going much further. His time has been up for a while now, but his replacement is a tough one.
  25. Not overly keen on this new theme. What was wrong with the 2015 one? Nothing, apart from the fact it had old voices on it. A clean cut version is on Soundcloud and must be floating around elsewhere, a simple edit to that with new voices would've worked fine. This one sounds very gameshow type of theme. I thought the 2015 one did at first. The "One" thing is very on trend and not what I'd opt for. However, it does leave a nice echo and music after that for s few seconds. Unfortunately I'm constantly reminded of Grenfell Tower by this theme, as that tragedy happened only 2 days after this l
