  1. Scott & Chris are off 5 Live for the Olympics with Adrian Chiles on in that timeslot. Makes mores sense as they will be frequently crossing to live play-by-play of the events.
  2. Not meaning this in a mean way but did you look at the Unofficial Mills podcast archive? Think it's the September 7th one here: https://unofficialmills.co.uk/download/september-2012-scott-mills-daily-podcasts/
  3. Does anyone have a copy of the 10-23-2019 Scott Mills Daily episode titled A Very Loud Yungblud? Seems to have disappeared from the podcast feed and isn't in the Unofficial Mills archive. Thanks!
  4. @THIS IS THE BBC Could you share the original spreadsheet of this?
  5. As great as ever - loving the mix of Greg's features as well as their own. Unfortunate that the Coronavirus is likely is the reason for them being back on brekkie but glad they've been on. Clara's alright but it's been night-and-day hearing their shows back-to-back. Her show serves a purpose but Scott and Chris is what we need in these times.
  6. Dating back to late Aug 2018 in fact. Better than how they use to delete them after 30 days as it's more convenient to get to them in my podcast app than downloading from the UM archive.
  7. Good show thus far (but what would you expect?)... even a good luck message from Andy King off of the Fyre Festival ?
  8. Radio 1 was on there until around 2011 I think. SiriusXM costs around $200/yr although you can often work out a better offer. Much more variety than what's on AM and FM and like I said COMMERCIAL-FREE.
  9. I'd say Spotify + podcasts comprise the majority of my listening. Our equivalent of DAB in the U.S., "HD Radio", is not prevalent outside of major cities and their are only 7 HD stations in our area. I do listen to the local FM/AM stations for NPR, BBC World Service, sports programming, college radio (shoutout LCC Radio and The Impact), and even the two local Top-40 stations (which have a glut of commercials and a narrow playlist). As far as online streaming of "traditional" stations - BBC Radio 1, 5Live, World Service, and TalkSport, more live sports (I have an MLB audio subscription for baseball), and whatever random ones I find in the TuneIn app. Over here we have SiriusXM satellite radio - a subscription service with tons of commercial-free music + talk, news, sports, comedy, etc. That usually takes precedent in the car. They even had Radio 1 at one point - it's a shame they can't make room for that but have a Kidz Bop channel FFS. As far as audiobooks I'm not a fan. I'd much rather read the paper copy myself.
  10. I've been using get_iPlayer. It can be finicky at times but it gets the job done.
  11. Make sure on the the device toolbar that "Windows WASAPI" and "Stereo/Headphones" is selected on the two left boxes. If the toolbar is missing go to View >> Toolbars to enable it.
  12. The Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw - whooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
  13. It's been about 4 years exactly since I've been listening to Radio 1. I'm a 19-year old radio nerd from the U.S. and had been flipping through international stations on TuneIn when I first came across Grimmy on breakfast, which I thought was alright at the time but when Scott & Chris ended up covering I realized I was missing something great. I've listened to every Scott Mills Daily since then. I added Greg James' podcast as well and podcasts continue to be my typical method of consuming R1. When I do "tune" in live I've enjoyed Alice Levine, Jordan North, and Annie Mac when they're on. Matt Edmondson is pretty meh to me but I haven't heard him with Mollie to make a judgment there. Likewise, the breakfast show (1:30a-5a) and Clara Amfo (5-8) aren't on at good times to listen over here. I do appreciate Adele Roberts (11p-1:30a) who has provided a soundtrack to many a late-evening homework/study sesh. She's an underrated talent IMO. I'd probably listen a lot more if SiriusXM put Radio 1 back on over one of the duplicate top-40 stations they have. It would be a unique addition to their lineup.
  14. It worked fine for me... https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0b4yxh3 Can't wait to hear Scott tomorrow!
  15. Not exactly as he's off to Eurovision that week.
  16. Along with no mention across Scott's social media, the results page shows that Scott didn't run the Marathon. Adele Roberts finished in 3:30:38 , Dev in 4:30:56 , and Danny Howard in 5:41:16 .
  17. Hmm... so much to unravel here! Scott gets the chart show (well deserved) and Grimmy gets reduced to four days a week (must be on the way out now). Also, why bother putting Maya Jama on Mills' show on Fridays just to split it up a few months later?
  18. Also hoping that Scott & Chris do a couple red button commentaries again like the last World Cup and Euros.
  20. I wonder if there is some sort of sliding scale in play as well with better-known artists having more freedom with their cover choice? I'm sure the Radio 1 folks think that a well-known track or cover of one would have more YouTube views.
  22. Funny thing that I was flipping through channels a few months ago and saw her on an NBC comedy "The Good Place", where she co-stars along with Kristen Bell and Ted Danson.
  23. I haven't heard much of Maya Jama but I don't like that she's being wedged in with Scott & Chris on Fridays. Jordan North really got shafted just getting three hours on a Sunday. Also re: Alice, she will be over in the US & Canada for the My Dad Wrote A Porno tour from February 22nd to March 7th. P.S. Ugh - don't understand why the Greatest Hits show is staying on!
