  1. Lots of interesting changes there - nice to see Dean McCullough covering already, it will be nice to see what he sounds like bouncing off another presenter. Also good to see Sam and Danni off the Christmas line up being used again and Vick in for Annie is an unexpected choice but one that I can definitely see working!
  2. As much as I like Vick and Katie, it feels like R1 have more than enough cover for them to have to do 8 days in a row and possibly 2 shows in 1 day as well.
  3. I’m surprised there’s not been anymore announcements about Big Weekend yet - it’s supposed to happen in about a month and so far there’s been almost nothing said apart from the initial announcement.
  4. I completely agree with that, maybe radio 1 need a specific evening commissioner? Daytimes sound like they’ll be really great with the new changes and an Arielle/ Greg/ RMC/ Scott and Chris/ Grimmy line up is very strong and weekend daytimes are very strong now too. However, the evenings look like they’ll be a complete mess now, there’s literally going to be 4 hours of basically nothing every night. Then there’s the fact that the specialist shows seem to have been halved in length, the fact that live shows seem to be ending at 10pm now, the random mix of power down playlist and intro
  5. It’s a bit disappointing that they’ve got rid of the evening entertainment slot really, I could have seen Grimmy fitting in there nicely between Clara and Jack Saunders but obviously that won’t happen now. Hopefully they are able to bring it back again in the future, maybe when RMC leave and aren’t taking up what seems like a lot of R1’s budget 😂
  6. Just noticed too that the specialist shows have been cut to an hour so now only seem to be from 11pm - midnight. I wonder what the 12-4 slot will be? Just repeats and mixes because that’s a very long time not to have any particular shows!
  7. Definitely a shame that there looks like there’s more cost cutting involved though with live shows now ending at 11pm rather than midnight and no direct replacement for RMC.
  8. God this all looks complicated and I’ve already read through the article twice! I’ll share my thoughts properly once I work out what’s actually happening.
  9. Not sure what exactly is happening but radio 1 seem to have an ‘Earth Day’ theme of shows on Thursday evening: 6-8 Power Down Playlist with Annie Mac 8-10 Radio 1’s Chillest Show with Sian Eleri 10-11 Radio 1’s Decompression Session 11-12 Radio 1’s Movie Mixtapes: Classical Chilled Piano Mixtape 12am-4am Earth Day on Radio 1 Not quite sure what this is about, other than it seems to be a chilled theme of shows - Radio 1 seem to be very into the chilled theme at the moment especially with the whole day of shows on bank holiday Monday too.
  10. The plan said that all the moves had to be implemented by 2027 I think so I’m guessing Radio 1 management are guessing that at least 1 of Clara, Scott and Grimmy will have left by then (probably all 3) and then they can decide who and which slot to move up North!
  11. Really enjoyed hearing him this afternoon! Genuinely think he would be perfect for Annie’s show and a great cover for Clara and Grimmys daytime shows
  12. I’ll throw in a few: • I don’t really like Greg’s breakfast show and much preferred him on drive • Scott is sounding better in his current 1-3:30 slot than he has ever done before • Annie Mac isn’t really suited to the Monday - Thursday Future Sounds show and Jack Saunders would be much better on it. She can definitely stay on Friday nights though.
  13. I’ve been meaning to make this topic for a while but what are you favourite features on R1 currently? In my opinion, Scott’s show is very strong, the Don’t Look It Up quiz is great, and I really like both Brother or Lover and Granny Tinder too (along with Bamboleo). In the other shows, Matt vs Mollie is great, along with quite a lot of content in their show. I also really enjoy What’s My Age Again? The few time that Greg does it anymore, and although simple, I think Reasons to be Cheerful is a really nice feature in Arielle’s early breakfast show. So, what are all of your fav
  14. think it’s just Fridays when Greg’s show has more mixed tracks @OohErr they are usually older tracks too I think.
  15. 1xtra seems to be going back to usual just after Easter! I think a couple of their presenters have had to shield so obviously haven’t been able to be inside the building to do their shows.
  16. Yes, the first hour of Dance Anthems does seem to be requests. I would guess that Sunday Breakfast finishes at 11 because the Chillout Anthems have been made into 1 hour long shows with 4 put together, a bit like the R1 Dance shows.
  17. Full Easter schedule: Good Friday (R1 Dance) 5-7 Dean McCullough 7-10 Arielle Free 10-1 Adele Roberts 1-4 Sarah Storey 4-6 Official Chart with Scott Mills 6-Midnight (R1 Dance Takeover) Saturday (10 hour takeover) 7-10:30 Adele Roberts 10:30-1 Jordan North 1-4 Rickie and Melvin After 4 As normal Sunday (Chillout?) 7-11 Chillout Anthems with Jess Iszatt 11-1 Jordan North 1-4 Rickie, Melvin and Charlie After 4 As normal Monday (Anthems) 4-6 R1 Dance 6-10 James Cusack 10-2 Vicky Hawkesworth 2-6 Robyn Richford 6-8 Power Down
  18. Ooh that’s interesting - correct me if I’m wrong but I think that’s the first time he’s covered a proper daytime show as opposed to him doing the Indie Show on the nighttime takeover?

  20. Matt and Vick have hosted together once before I think and they sounded good together so looking forward to hearing them on breakfast!
  21. Looks like Vick and Katie are actually covering Breakfast on the Friday of the week that Greg is off and Matt and Mollie will be staying on their usual show. Not who I expected to see as breakfast cover at all but it will be interesting to see how they manage it!
  22. https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/2021/radio-1-lolathon Press release with all the details, nice to see that it involves all the presenters and good to see that it looks like lots of money is being spent on it. Very intrigued to see how they’ll do some of those things with Covid measures too!
  23. Why’s it on the 5th March? That’s a Friday!
  24. I think their new show sounds really great, really nice to have a really strong weekend schedule again and good to have a weekend afternoon entertainment show. In my opinion, it’s the strongest Matt has sounded since he had his 10-1 shows. Depending on when Scott goes, I could see them taking over his show, as I think Jordan is definitely favourite for Drive. Hopefully they take their producer (Louis) with them if they do ever move shows.
