  1. Yeah looks that way to me The week before usually loads of weekday shows are from the place too, not mentioned next week until Friday breakfast unless the others are going up in the week - wonder if Scott has to be in London for the chart Friday then travel up
  2. Big weekend schedule is out Friday is a combo of Greg and Matt and Mollie on breakfast branded as Gregs show so wonder if he will use his imaging etc? Also Arielle in for Matt and Mollie Sat and Sun Maya and Jordan doubling up 10-1 and Dev and Alice on at 1, but no other DJs on schedule so wonder if theyll just float about or do a bit each - last year Scott was in evening on Sunday IIRC
  3. Scott of course and Chris has revitalized his show Moyles from yesteryear - I would also say Sara as well in her later years at R1 Currently Dev and Alice are upping their game and I really like the new three from Kiss they've fitted in really well and I'd take a punt that it won't be too long until they appear on daytime
  4. Also of note on this playlist is that Scott is in for Moyles but also shown as In for Greg - what was that about? Suspect Sara was in for Scott that week
  5. When Greg first started it continued, Scott covered the day he got married a few weeks after taking over, then he was the anchor man for the escape room show Scott also covered it a bit over Christmas; its clear they always intended Scott to cover as they had imaging done for him Matt and Mollie covered over Christmas for the second week (Greg had two weeks off over Xmas) because Scott was off too, and now seem to have been used for this period of leave, my guessing is that A because of last week nearly every other show was cover, so Scott was consistent and B because Scott may have had this massive Taylor Swift thing today so needed to be on afternoons, which IMO would have been better him doing it on breakfast, C Scott has eurovision stuff happening and D Radio 2 cover work I'd say a domino effect has now happened starting with Chris Evans and Simon Mayo leaving R2, TBF if that hadn't happened and a route to R2 wasn't open now, then maybe Scott just may have taken the Heart job? So with Evans leaving and Mayo, that opened the door for Zoe and Sara therefore opened the door for Scott to start covering more, like Sara did in about 2011/12/13 time
  6. Talking about that, noted that Adele has dropped the Friday resident DJ segment for the earlier finish "Film friday" dropped
  7. What I am wondering is; who decides who the cover presenters are and what they do; how do they allocate it, I assume someone like Scotts agents talk to R1 management and say when he's off so they have to cover I wonder if they have like a rota person who produces it all
  8. I wonder if Scott's Monday special is a pre record then, if they are off to eurovision I am glad its Dev and Alice as well I can see Dev getting 1-4 going forward actually as he's not got other weekday commitments like Alice has and Alice going solo weekends also Chris would work well with Dev if Scott went to R2 and Chris stayed at R1 It looks to me that the current way of covering seems to be weekend guys do their slot weekdays if the equivalent is off now
  9. Yeah it was rather odd, but then Scott has never been one to play on the fact he's been there that long, he doesn't like reminding people he has been TBF most of his younger audience probably wouldn't know he'd been there that long anyway, or even remember him on drive CM would have played on it big time on the contrary if he had made 20 years on R1 and 10 on breakfast on 2014, but he'd never be on daytime now, maybe if he'd taken Grimmys old slot he was offered he still wouldn't be there now and only one day at weekends and some R2 work Scott is bang on target still and caters for his right audience, older studying students and uni people and people at home in the day and driving for work, which are generally late 20s early 30s upwards He adapts to the chart and Dance Anthems well and he has proven countless times he can become more R2 style in an instant so much so we had him on in the car Sat and my Mrs asked me to put Mr Jam back on ! as she thought it was boring talking to people about marathons and all What he has done on R2 in three hours Saturday is more speech than a whole week on 1-4 shows I bet he did more voice in hour 1 than a whole weekday show 3hrs I seriously think he is no longer primary breakfast cover now, and instead he's being given opportunity to cover on R2
  10. I am hedging a bet with the new joint controller role coming in, that Scott makes a permanent move to R2 in the next year maybe bar the Chart on a Friday, and he replaces Steve Wright or Ken Bruce or Vine but as a music show not what Vine does now
  11. Report on Radio today that all Pop stations will have one controller, rumored to be Ben Cooper https://radiotoday.co.uk/2019/04/bbc-to-create-single-role-to-control-radio-1-and-radio-2/ This could open the door for more change to schedules and presenter roles, and could ease Scott's transition to R2

    Mollie Solo?

    It seems to me that these last couple weeks Mollie has been doing the buttons etc and Matt has been the Chris Stark side of the desk, I imagine they take it in turns usually so they alternate every other weekend driving the desk, suspect Dev and Alice do the same too, but with Mollie still pretty green to it she's getting her hours in learning the buttons and maybe doing Pilots on off days to practice Wonder if she'll be on weekend breakfast alone or cover another show
  13. Serious question; I've noticed that your'e covering Radio 2 shows a bit now, is the start of the transition? and why aren't you covering Greg's leave these weeks Would you consider being interviewed on my Community radio drivetime show by phone to support the cause and endorse such projects and share any tips for aspiring presenters What is your five year plan What has been your most memorable radio moment
  14. And to add to that, notice over Xmas Matt and Mollie had a breakfast jingle package made for weekdays, meaning this must have been in pipeline Ironic as CM used to rip Matts voice and now Matt is breakfast cover
  15. I kind of agree with that My theory would be they need somewhere for all these presenters to make way for the newer generation, it could be just a DAB and online station maybe? I can see someone like Scott moving to Greatest hits soon, maybe he'll do Chart Friday then GH Sat and Sun with Maya Fridays only and Jordan taking 1-4 weekdays? To me it looks like they've dropped him as breakfast cover now and Matt is doing it
