  1. @jono Was Breakfast called "The Radio one breakfast show with Sara Cox" before "The Chris Moyles Show"? also in Grimmys time it was "The Radio 1 Breakfast Show with" where as now it is "Radio 1 Breakfast" - although Greg always calls it "the Breakfast show" I wonder why?
  2. Also what is funny is on R5L you have Adele followed by Scott which has been the case all week on R1
  3. I am very interested to see how this pans out now Radio 1's "Supply Teacher" is no longer "supply" Arielle I expect will become the new "supply" like Greg was on earlies, cover the other daytime slots maybe RMC can self Cover unless all three are off same with Jordan and Vick so I'd imagine the rest of daytime will be split between Katie and Arielle
  4. The package Annie uses has been in for at least 5 years now hasn't it
  5. It looks like Aled is having a Bannister style clear out
  6. Dean has taken all of Jordans Slots Fri Sat and Sun and will be from Salford The chat box has been broke for days
  7. Now there is a suprise NOT lol
  8. I had Arielle on in the car coming home from work at 6am and she even said "warming u up for Greg James at 7"
  9. Or even Greg - I bet he would if given the call Chris Stark? give him a chance to do it solo
  10. Several elements suprise me here A. why not use Jordan in the week? unless he is going home? B. Why double shift them on Sunday, when someone like Arielle, or any of the weekday DJs could cover Jordans slot, before he went to drivetime, in fact after he did it wasn't unknown for Greg to cover a weekend shift, or Scott for that matter (although in this case Scott is off) Greg used to regularly cover the chart on a Sunday and Scott did too, and cover things like dance anthems and all Chris Moyles used to cover weekend shifts sometimes, when they were at last resort, it seems these days the weekday lot only stray to weekend shows when its something like Big Weekend
  11. Maybe V&K to weekday afternoons from Salford?
  12. Grimshaw and North to swap I suspect and at the same time RMC would get Mids on Friday as well September 2022 Mills to R2 M&M to weekday afternoons Monday - Friday, Jordan takes on chart so is on drive 5 days making Friday daytime back to being part of the week
  13. Scott's departure is speculated all the time, it's like Moyles in about 2008 when they speculated it, I wish people would jjst leave him alone and enjoy the radio he does, when he does finally leave, it will be straight to Radio 2 so we won't loose him, he's in a kind of waiting room at the moment waiting the "slot" to come up on R2
  14. They told us why... because of COVID listening habits have changed, no longer is there a mad commute at 7/730 by car which was the massive listener base in the mornings, 90% of the UK is WFH and many firms are staying as WFH models as they have found it works so well, and saves costs of renting masses of office space when they can just hire conference facilities when they need, therefore more people aren't getting up than before COVID, ergo not listening at 6.30 anymore, more likely listening at 730/8am (My Mrs used to get up at 0530 to leave at 7 for work in the car now she gets up at 645 to start WFH at 830 - see the difference) They also had to deal with the evening listeners not commuting home at the same time, and more likely listening to Annie earlier, so they had to move her earlier as well, now Grimmy catches the teens off the school run as well as the 5pm commuters who may have him on at 5 past 5 in the kicthen after their commute down the stairs while preping dinner as opposed to having him on 530 - 630 while driving home or on the train Does this make sense to you?
  15. Dev's situation was slightly different as in he was covering the 9-11 weeknight slot until they got a new host (RMC) - when he started covering they didn't know who would take the slot This is one week only
  16. I wonder if they would move her to drive if Grim left?
  17. MistaJam had a pop at R1 saying no pre recorded mixes here, do we know how Radio 1 do it? and is Dance Anthems done the same way? I always "assumed" him and Charlie mixed it themselves on the decks
  18. I would like to see "Where ere they" come back as well, it seems the show only has three slots for features, 140, 240 and 310, the first half hour is always and always has been too music heavy for my liking, also I don't see why they have to have a newsbeat at 130, when there is the long one at 1245?
  19. Yeah they are good, makes you wonder why they left Kiss for evenings on R1? and before COVID were they destined for bigger things at R1?
  20. Did they use the old bed and all
  21. Yeash he kind of missed the boat a bit - waited on earlies for a bit then got weekend breakfast which i'd say was less of a gig, then covered weekdays, maybe had Grimmy gone after breakfast completely he would have got drive maybe but - like Scott with breakfast that ship sailed I think in an alternate world Moyles shoudl ahve left in about 2009/10 then Scott on breakfast for 5 years then onto afternoons, like Mayo etc with Greg taking Breakfast then and Grimmy not on weekdays
  22. Indeed - He doesn't want to be doing a Bannister type clear out specially when there is a pandemic on - Dev and all were difficult decisions, can you imagine the uproar there will be if Scott or dare I even say Grimmy moves on? He knows that as well
  23. Yes quite - if they Know Jordan is headed for daytime (drive) then they need to find a cover to cover for him
  24. Will Manning did both? Wes Butters?
