    Radio 1 Relax

    What is the rule exactly for these streams? I read somewhere, that they can't air anything new, just repeats of R1 shows, is that actually right? If so, that's bad news for live shows on R1. And with the upcoming changes it will get even worse as it seems now. Like R1 really aired this at one point? Radio 1's Relaxing ASMR - Water - BBC Sounds Content warning: this is the direct opposite of relaxing. No joke. Ladies and gentlemen, the world famous new music station presents Instant Bathroom Break: The Show!
  2. Scott on Serbian X-factor WhhhhooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooo!
  3. Wow, this reshuffle has the best and the worst changes at the same time. Impressive. I'm okay with Annie leaving the weekday show, I've always thought that someone else should have followed Zane to begin with, someone with the same energy, like Phil Taggart (he even said in his last show how odd was to him at first to get the chill show) or now Jack Saunders (that guy is so enthusiastic about music, he could even sell Macarena to me if he had to i swear). She did a great job though, but it could have been better. Friday evenings on the other hand... without Annie, Thursdays are going
  4. I'm a regular listener of the Tiktok Chart... oops, I mean the Official Chart since Scott took over, and I prefer this shorter version too, gives them more freedom in picking which songs get played from the lower half. If I remember correctly, it has been moved from Sunday to Friday because it has to match the day of new music releases. If they move it back to Sunday, it becomes outdated.
  5. This was the last post I read yesterday before the site went all 404. Thought the opinions got a little too unpopular... My take on Anthems: Nowadays it's my favourite punching bag, but Greatest Hits started off as my most liked show (even the Maya Jama edition), but then they kept repeating too much, started mixing the songs (and how badly... those awkward mashups), and the presenters got limited to shoutouts and fake excitement, no more "Heaven... or **echo on** HELL" or anything like that. And instead of a few hours per week, now it's on probably every day, sometimes an anthems sho
  6. I thought it was going to be canceled this year, but so happy they managed to do it after all. I was listening live but missed a lot, I'm slowly catching up on Sounds, about halfway through now. I liked the new format and that they dropped the "we always have to tell jokes between songs" rule, it wouldn't have been funny for the third time. I agree on the video stream. When R1 did the Longest Show (10 years ago today!) they did have a non-stop video stream right on the R1 main page, seeing everything that happened in the studio added so much to the experience. Also every time I hear
  7. I wasn't really listening these shows because I'm just sick of anthems, but I've heard yesterday's chart show. The duo got a lot of praise from texters and rightfully so. Introducing almost 40 Christmas songs on New Year's Day is probably not the most grateful job ever, but they nailed it. Alex & Numi get a thumbs up from me.
  8. Finally someone at R1 realised how confusing Friday "Weekend" Breakfast was and let Greg have the slot. Great news! I'm also really happy for Arielle, I was afraid she will just disappear after weekend early breakfast has been practically axed. I'll probably hear her live more, when apocalypse times are over and I have to get up earlier again. Dev's and Phil's announcement was unexpected, Huw's not so much, he's rather been a 6music presenter lately. As for the future I hope they tone down anthems a bit, now it feels like every third hour is an anthems block of some kind. And fi
  9. I know he's still on, but: Phil Taggart. Him getting 10 PM with Alice was fine, then they gave him one hour per week, got moved to 3 AM, and now he has The Chillest Show on Planet Earth, which is decent show in a fitting timeslot, just doesn't fit him at all. For example I'd trade 9 PM RMC for a Loudest Show on Planet Earth with Phil any time.
  10. Thank you for the grid, the best parts at a quick first glance: No one gets axed. Scott is still on Mon-Fri. Earlier Jack & Annie. Jordan getting his well deserved 3 shows a week. The worst changes: 1. Weird and inconsistent timings and show lengths. It will be really hard for a casual listener to remember who's on when. Should've gone with 6-9-12-15h instead (possibly with the lunchtime newsbeat at 11:45). Random anthem shows everywhere (especially the party anthem hour at 3). Weekend evening shows inconsistently still start at 7pm instead of 6
  11. I'm also sad to see her leave, Dev & Alice has become my favourite weekend show, at least after they got moved to afternoons. They were fine on their own before, and felt really forced at the time to pair them up, but somehow 1 + 1 became 3. And now they've had like 1 or 2 weekends on air as a duo this year, Alice was mostly off to do other comedy/podcast stuff (probably this is what she had to gave up radio for), even after Maya left they've got split up for some unknown reason. I don't know what's next for Dev, he probably stays on, I've got nothing against him, it's just a step bac
  12. I'm really happy for Arielle but still find the "Friday is weekend" thing confusing, now more than ever. Just have 3 different schedules for weekdays, Friday and weekends, easy as that.
  13. Wow, this sounds amazing, I've been waiting for something like this since 2013.
  14. Though I'd prefer more new music and a longer playlist, I like this kinda shows, I'm a regular listener of Jordan's one on Sundays for months now. My main criticism is the selection. They tend to pick the same one hit wonders again and again in every few weeks, or stick to the one or two most famous tracks of each artist and ignore the rest. It feels like having a D list, which never changes. (If have have to listen to "Teenage Dirthbag" or "Rude Boy" again with the introduction "What a banger, I haven't heard this in ages!", I'm gonna cry...) I also have mixed feelings on the mix fo
