    matthewm192 got a reaction from Ryan Pannell in BBC Radio 1 OFCOM Changes   
    It looks like they're gonna have to put a 15 minute bulletin in the breakfast show to me... (not that I'll mind as it's 15 mins less Grimmy in the morning)
    I've always loved how seriously they take the 1 hour day time news rule it's exactly right to the minute:
    6:30, 7:00, 7:30, 8:00, 8:30, 9:30 all 3 mins so 18 mins. 10:30 and 11:30 are 2 mins each bringing it to 22. 1:30 is 1 min (23), 2:30 and 3:30 2 mins (26), 4:30 3 mins (29), and 5:00 1 min (30) - add the 15 min bulletins and there is your hour!

    10 Hour takeovers annoy me - all the people who request songs on the playlist wind me up. I bet the most requested dog will be bloody Harry Styles.

    There is definitely a lack of hype this year - I don't understand why they'd release the location and three acts, then basically forget about it for two months!

    matthewm192 got a reaction from thebeuter in The new chart style   
    This has been done before (Christmas last year), but doubt the OCC would agree to it, they want a prime time slot; also they'd have to turn the data around fast, and R1 would have to turn it around even faster to get it on air and produced to a decent standard! Although from our perspective it makes some sense, I can't see R1 or OCC ever going for it.

    matthewm192 got a reaction from thebeuter in The new chart style   
    Disagree here, we were behind the rest of the world with the chart - with songs being released on Fridays/Saturdays, meaning they'd be part of the UK chart on the Sunday yet would place low as only being around for a few hours, thus not reaching their possible potential. Moving the chart to a Friday is better for artists, and allows for a more accurate representation of their album sales in the chart - it therefore makes it more interesting for the listeners too. 
    I do agree however that it was better for programming when it was on a Sunday, and it's definitely a shame to have lost Greg's Friday show; the chart is bigger than Radio 1 however, and they have to move for the chart and the music industry, not the other way round.

    matthewm192 reacted to murste in Greg for Capital breakfast?   
    Well firstly, he doesn't work for BBC News so the need to be balanced isn't as important and the things he posts on social media are to try and make positive cases to his followers as well as being funny so can't see anything wrong with that. Not like he's slagging off Theresa May or being really political- it's his private account anyway.
    Secondly, I would put money on Greg not being the new Capital Breakfast host. I'd say it'll be Will Manning or Roman Kemp- two brilliant presenters Capital already have who would be perfect for the target audience and would fit in with George and Lilah. Greg's style is just SO different to Capital- his games, features, chats with Chris Smith, use of language and expression etc wouldn't go with the Capital style. He has so much freedom on Radio 1, gets to do other things like Children in Need, the Gregathlon and has been allowed to take the BT Sport cricket job (if he took Capital Breakfast, he'd have to quit the cricket job because most of it's in the middle of the night). And of course, he's probably next in line for the Radio 1 Breakfast Show. Really can't see it happening

    matthewm192 reacted to ThinkTank in Clean versions of songs   
    Radio 1 are a different ball game to commercial radio, which is seen with sexual being turned to sensual (but no idea where they source that kind of edit though) Most of the muted swear words are added by the promo companies and record labels, we have some email us for the community station I work at, they prove the original track and a clean radio edit, from what I can tell all these radio edits sound the same so if it's deemed ok by the music team they'll just use the version sent to them like we do.

    The easy way to ALWAYS know:
    Normal: "It's 2:30 on BBC Radio 1, let's get the news with Chris Smith"
    Pre-record: "It's 2:30 on BBC Radio 1, and it's time for the news with the Newsbeat team"
    They never ever say the newsreader's name. Also the bulletin will be two minutes long to the second.

    Surely pre recording "the freshest chart around" that is supposed to keep running while the show is still going is completely counter productive? I mean I didn't hear it but even conceptually it sounds like a complete mess!

    I highly doubt Scott and Chris recorded 'as-live' - Scott's just really good at what he does, so voice tracking a show to sound natural would be child's play. Grimmy on the other hand is not, hence why his pre-rec sounded slightly wooden, same goes for Clara.
    Time checks for the news aren't rocket science either - the news happens on the half-hour dead, and even if it didn't nobody would notice a time check that's only a minute or two out.

    Thanks to the power of Iplayer I've gone back through the years to look at who had what live shows on Christmas Day since 2007. Sadly its impossible to just see a schedule, you've gotta search by DJ, but here's what I've figured: (links provided to programme pages which include the music played)
    2007 - Breakfast with Greg 6-10
    2008 - Breakfast with Scott 7-10 / 10-1 with Greg
    2009 - Breakfast with Greg 6-10
    2010 - Breakfast with Greg 7-10 (this was a Saturday - still had a weekday presenter)
    2011 - Breakfast with Greg 7-10 (was a Sunday) / Official Chart with Reggie
    2012 - Breakfast with Greg 6-10 / Fearne Cotton 10-1 (may have been a pre record) / Scott Mills 1-4
    2013 - Adele 4-6:30 / Breakfast with Scott 6:30-10 / Huw Stephens 10-1
    2014 - Gemma 4-6:30 (probably a pre record) / Scott 6:30-10 /  Fearne 10-1 (probably pre record) / Huw Stephens 1-4 
    2015 - Adele 4-6:30 (pre record) / Breakfast with Scott 6:30-10 / Official Chart with Greg 10-1
    2016 - Dev 6-10
    Kind of demonstrates how little live content there is this year compared to previous years actually...

    I don't want to be the one that says it - but I think radio is slowly dying. There's just not the investment anymore, be it in money or skills - unless R1 come up with some fresh ideas I think that too many people will be lost to downloads and streaming; which sadly could ultimately result in the end of R1 forever [emoji22]

    I still stand by the fact that the show sounded pretty fresh and fun in 2012 and 2013, but since Fincham's departure, I feel it's gone on a downward trajectory. 
    However, saying that, Moyles' Radio X show is really quite poor. The "half hour chat" is full of pauses, erms and boring bits. It's also always very Chris-centric. I listened this morning and in fairness it's the first time I've properly laughed twice at the radio in ages, but it just all sounded a bit unnecessarily drawn out. And naff imaging. Everything feels redundant.

    I haven't heard much of him on early breakfast - tbh most of his weekend cover annoys me so idk if he'll get a slot. Saying that he jacked his job in at his Manchester station recently so maybe he heard there might be something up for grabs...

    On a separate note I LOVE Adele in for Clara - she's much more up beat, professional, has a better way with words. She's just simply more enjoyable to listen to and doesn't bore me like Clara so often does!
