Whooooooo?! (1/6)



  1. Just seen that Vick and Jordan are covering breakfast on Friday 1st October
  2. RMC work much better than Clara did in that slot too, and Clara is the most sensible replacement for Annie (who I'll also continue to miss!), and its nice to have Sian Eleri getting more hours so quickly, really like her. Good changes all round on weekdays imo!
  3. Vick and Jordan are sounding so much more at ease today, really promising first few shows. I was a fan of Grimmy so its big shoes to fill for me but they're more than proving they are the right replacement.
  4. While I’m sad to see Grimmy go, it felt like it was around the corner for a while now, especially recently with Annie and Sinead leaving, so I’m not too surprised. Really pleased they didn’t do the obvious thing of just moving Jordan over but have instead decided to add Vick into the mix! Both of them work best when they have someone to bounce off so makes the most sense to put them together. Not too sure how I feel about Dean yet, feels like a very quick promotion! Think I need to hear more before I form a proper opinion, but it is a bit of a shame Katie hasn’t had some sort of promotion here
  5. Arielle is also staying on until 6:30 next friday to cover best new pop for mollie
  6. Just came on here to say the same thing, rarely listen to Jack because indie's not my thing but he sounded really good tonight!
  7. Its supposed to be in the style of the specialist show in question though because its a takeover, so I suspect it will be the same imaging as The Chillest Show
  8. So this is very interesting Bank Holiday Monday (26th August) Radio 1 are doing a nighttime takeover with the following shows 07:00 The Chillest Show with Phil Taggart 10:00 Ricky, Melvin & Charlie 13:00 Pete Tong 16:00 Indie Show with Jack Saunders 19:00 Dan P Carter 22:00 Benji B
  9. I'll be the lone Grimmy fan here and say I think he gets a hard time here. He has an incredible skill of making his shows sound natural but still entertaining and that can be very difficult to pull off for many presenters. I'm a bit lukewarm on Jordan North taking over drive. He's a good presenter but having Greg on breakfast and Jordan on drive all feels too... safe, and we know radio 1 don't like to play safe. Grimmy and Greg have opposite personalities to appeal to different people in Radio 1's demographic during their flagship weekday shows (hence why you usually hear people prefer one to the other), and Greg and Jordan seem to appeal to the same type of people. I personally enjoyed Alice Levine covering on Thursday, but I don't think we'll ever see a scenario where Dev & Alice take over 4-7.
  10. there is every year yet the rule is often broken or ignored. its the only reason i can think of as to why the radio 1 content for big weekend this year has been quite dire
  11. i think with big weekend being fully live there was always the issue of swearing pre-watershed and a lot of the acts would break that rule despite being told not to, so maybe that’s why they aren’t broadcasting as live like usual? A shame indeed as I preferred the pre-2018 BW coverage but I suppose if it stops them from getting into hot water it makes sense
  12. Strange that they've only just changed Scott to Dev and Alice next week. That would mean he's off for two weeks as the week after is Eurovision week.
  13. i would say that eurovision is the reason too. that would be 3 weeks off 1-4 within the space of a month. That being said i can also see Matt & Mollie being the go to cover from now on anyway. It stops the weekday schedule being interrupted and ties in with the weekend schedule nicely.
  14. yeah I have to admit I went to sleep after Unexpected Fluids hour. Felt like they peaked at 10pm when all the DJs came in at the same time, should’ve been spread out more because we didn’t even get to hear some of them! also can’t felt but feel they’re disappointed by the total. Only at £32K so I can’t blame them. Can’t see it happening again if they don’t get that total up asap.
