    LSR1 reacted to Tea20 in Alice Levine leaves Radio 1 after 9 years   
    It's a bit sad knowing that this is the last ever time Alice will be on R1. She's always been one of my favourite presenters and listening to her show has always manged to put a smile on my face and often had me laughing out loud. Best of luck to her in whatever she does next.

    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

    LSR1 got a reaction from Mike123 in Go Home with Jordan North   
    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.

    LSR1 reacted to OohErr in Radio 1 Breakfast with Greg James - First Thoughts   
    Been seeing a few quotes on Twitter today from a speech Greg gave at some European Radio Conference. To summarise, Greg really doubling down on the whole "the listeners are more interesting than me so I make it about them" thing.
    Honestly, I can't say I agree. If that's the case then anyone could be doing the show - the reason Greg does it is because listeners are interested in him and his stories. He never used to do that shtick in the afternoons - it was HIS show, so I don't know where the whole modesty thing comes from. It's almost like he's embarassed to be there. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy listener's stories when they're funny and weird like on Scott's show, but not when they're the main attraction. I DO want to hear banter between presenters and stories from their own lives, that's why I listen - I've built up that relationship with the presenter over the years.
    I'm really sad about how little Greg's breakfast show does for me, I'd wanted him to get the gig for years and I really wanted to like the show but whenever I listen I just get fed up with how safe it is. And I used to love his afternoon show with Chris Smith. Haven't listened for months, although with local breakfast shows on Capital ending I'm not sure where I'll end up. Danny Mylo on Pulse 1 in West Yorkshire does a good show. Maybe I'll come back to Greg at some point, but for now I've gone right off.

    THIS IS WHY I LOVE RADIO. None of that dull shit that's so safe you want to cry. This rude af film quiz is something else.

    Actual LOL at Jordan and Scott just now:
    Jordan: oh god, they're gonna send me back to local radio - oh wait, all the jobs have gone.
    Scott: it's all coming from London now babes, Rock FM's not on anymore.

    LSR1 reacted to Fourcandles in Maya Jama (sigh)   
    So, Maya
    She's on twice a week and has been for nearly a year now, but does anyone else just feel like she doesn't fit in to radio 1? She never seems part of the team or that she cares about her show, there's literally no mention of her on any other show unless they're taking the piss out of her, she never covers and still makes basic mistakes, does anyone else just feel like she doesn't fit in at the station? I'm surprised she hasn't been sacked yet to be honest
    Or does anyone have a very different opinion and want to talk me around?

    For those that missed the original, all I can explain the imaging as is it had a sung theme, which sounded like it could be quite chanty. They had a tagline like 'The one to wake up with' or something

    LSR1 got a reaction from Aleks_ in Dev and Alice: interim drivetime   
    This is actually so true. I actually end up preferring Alice chatting with a fellow R1 DJ compared to a listener, whereas Dev works better with the listeners. They literally are chalk and cheese, but I like them both! 
     
    I do think theres potential in the show. I like the bit at the start of the show where they have a chat about things that have happened on the day (even though Greg already did this). There’s just a feeling they’ve scripted the direction of their links before they go on air, which sometimes doesnt sound right when it comes to double acts, as we’re so used to that natural zoo format approach when there’s more than one on air voice. Scott and Chris can sometimes be the like that but their constant listner interaction makes it sound more subtle. But Dev and Alice still have time to find their feet and these 6 weeks are the perfect opportunity for them to improve!

    I've been thinking about this a lot, and I think there's something in it. The thing Alice Levine lacks as a radio presenter is a bond with the audience. I can't put my finger on why - maybe it's the regular absences, maybe it's the sarcastic and slightly cutting sense of humour. But you never quite feel like she's talking to you in the same way you do with Greg, or Scott, or Dev, or Matt, or Grimmy. Weird. But sadly I think she's brought that over to the show with Dev - it now feels a bit more insular with him than when he's by himself. I'm not sure why - I like double acts and zoo formats in general. There's just something that doesn't feel quite right with her. I miss Dev's solo shows.

    Well, I'm also pro-school. The gong might have just been in the Music classroom, right? The thing is, it doesn't really narrow down the possibilities that much. 
    There's plenty of teachers that listen to R1 and they'd be up for it too.

    Surely all the chat about it being ‘end of term fun’ has to be a clue? Im thinking it has to be some sort of school, as its really quiet where they are and no school would be open at this time? Maybe they’ll be spotted when school starts in the morning?
