    20th December - Radio 1 Decade Of Dance from 7pm-11pm with Annie Mac & Pete Tong

    THIS IS THE BBC got a reaction from OohErr in Biggest Weekend 2018   
    Still no sets on iPlayer from the other stage on Saturday, watching the ive main stage thing is great but missing the djs on screen and the lack of radio coverage, the bbc staff are probably just stretched with the 4 sites

    THIS IS THE BBC got a reaction from Acelink in Radio 1 Podcasts   
    Is anyone else listening to the comedy podcasts?
    I quite enjoyed the Ed and Lauren Get On podcast (which has recently finished) due to their funny but down to earth style. It just feels very relaxed and I could see this being brought back as they seem to be quite natural on the radio. General discussions about the funny side of life in a great partnership of real-world comedians. Niki and Sammy's Peachy Podcast however hasn't been great as they spend most of the time talking about themselves and often have to have guests for the show to sound entertaining - it seems very similar to Grimmy's show - forced fun, reliance on guests and awful features (description friction in this case). They are just run-of-the-mill youtubers though so no great expectations here! Scott and Chris' Best in Show is great, replaying games and features from the past couple of years, I t would be better though if they went back even further to things we won't all remember or have heard before bu overall, it works well and is a great idea as a lot of radio is never repeated but Scott's show deserves to be promoted in this way due to its long history for being so entertaining. The Kench podcast will feature many shorter series', the current of which being Ray Moss - No Stone Unturned. This is very different from the others as it is a fictional, light-hearted detective series in which he tries to investigate mock-up cases sent in by listeners. It seems very good in the way the stories are quite funny and interesting and he is a great character. So all in all these new podcasts are a great addition to the R1 collection and I would recommend them to people who enjoy the existing podcasts. In my eyes a much better idea than the constant documentaries and R1 takeover's we were bombarded in this slot before!

    When will the station learn to stop using these youtubers: dan and phil, jack and dean and Niki and Sammy are all exactly the same, NOT FUNNY and not worthy of R1 Shows. They always give them new ideas eg video request show, click bait show, comedy podcast but really they are a waste of time and are over promoted by R1. There is a reason all of these shows have ground to a halt within weeks in the past because no-one cares about z-list youtubers.

    Hopefully, his replacement would take up all of these features as they are perfect for the slot on R1 and far better than some of the ideas they would have.

    I'd just let Chris do the one-off shows for Scott being off sick etc. but then get Alice or Matt on in long-term absences of Scott. Chris is easily as good as DJs like Clara or Cel but just not up to the standard of those like SCOTT AND GREG.

    Keep MistaJam on weeknights, move Dan P Carter to 6Music or something and get Annie back on Fridays and Sunday nights. Then bring either Dan and Phil or Jack and Dean or even Jordan North on 9-10 on Thursdays.

    THIS IS THE BBC got a reaction from thebeuter in Streaming has ruined the radio 1 playlist!   
    Even weekly podcasts for Greg and Grimmy are much less than they used to be. Grimmy only has enough content to fill half an hour for the whole week. Gregs is now only 50 mins when it used to last well over an hour.

    I reckon a good move would be Adele to weekend breakfast, Jordan to early breakfast and an Alice and Clara swap I think Dev's days are limited now.

    Or move newsbeat to 7 and have Danny Howard playing dance anthems until 8 then a more free variety from 8.

    Totally agree, one of the most important shows on the station squished into the smallest slot. Get rid of or delay dance anthems or the news and go through the whole chart like the Jameela Jamil days.

    Sorry got timings wrong, 3 two hour shows in the evening giving more time for music on stories and surgery and longer shows for Danny and Charlie. This pushes back Phil Taggart to later for a more relaxing show after a night out.
    As for MistaJam and the 1Xtra takeover, if you want that just switch over to 1Xtra.
    ICYMI would be a show similar to Chris on IPlayer with a Sunday evening recap of key moments in the last week replayed.
