  1. I know that rule definitely applied to Radio 1 Dance but the R1 Relax stuff doesn’t seem to have all aired previously although it’s definitely already on BBC Sounds before it airs so maybe that’s the rule. Some of the stuff seems to have come from 6 Music as well which is interesting, different stations sharing content. Personally I’ve never really listened to the R1 Dance stream but have to say I’ve been listening to R1 Relax pretty much every evening (and I’m very much the target audience) so think this is a great move from Radio 1. Been really enjoying it (not into the asmr stuff
  2. This sounds great! (Excuse the pun). How does this work with the ofcom rules? Obvs anything on R1 Dance has to have already aired on Radio 1, some of the stuff in the press release sounds specifically made for r1 relax?
  3. I think if she was going to any other BBC station they would have happely announced that on Radio 1/Press Release. I agree, don’t think there is anything commercial that really fits her show but can definitely see her at a streaming service as a music curator (maybe something like Phil Taggart does on Spotify) or even a specialist podcast or something.
  4. As Greg said it’s so nice for this all to spill out live on air. You wouldn’t get this on commercial, there would be a press release at most and then the presenter would just disappear from the station without much notice
  5. Apart from the weird times I think the current schedule is the best we have had in years. I very rarely find myself wanting to switch now. Hope it stays the same for a good while.
  6. I understand this...and yeah these decisions are made right at the top of management. Doubt anyone had a say that actually works at Radio 1! However, as a state broadcaster, surely (as we here all the time from the BBC themselves), there job is to provide something for everyone. Some radio stations completely dedicated to the news and extensive coverage (BBC Radio 4, 5 Live) but other providing light entertainment (music stations)....then as there duty as a state broadcaster they still provide regular updates on the music stations (through Newsbeat etc). The same could be said
  7. Completely agree with the above. I think BBC News stations (4/5) can provide the extensive coverage but music stations should not have basically been shut down. In my opinion, yesterday, Radio 1 should have taken BBC Radio 4 from 12:10-13:00. Then Matt & Mollie should taken over from 13:00-17:00 with chilled music (with lyrics though!)and a few links/general chat but no games/normal show content. Newsbeat updates should then have been every 30 mins throughout the day. I think it’s probs appropriate to suspend the chart as you can’t really control the content of it particularly we
  8. She occasionally does at the weekends I'm fairly sure. Probs just as it's Radio 1 Breakfast she may not feel as confident this week/Matt is a safe pair of hands
  9. They will still have to break for the news at 10:30 on the Sunday though, so doesn't really make sense why next presenter can't takeover as normal. Just seems inconsistent.
  10. Interesting! Vick Hope obviously has experience as she just came from Capital Breakfast. Will be great to hear them at that time!

    As the news is simulcast across three stations I believe it’s a little more complex then this as each station uses its own Newsbeat intro. BBCR1 uses ‘1’, 1Xtra uses ‘1Xtra’ and AN uses ‘Asian Network’. So I believe what happens is each presenter plays there own ramp into the news (the bit where they talk over e.g ‘it’s 9:30 on Radio 1, it’s time for Newsbeat with Roisin Hastie’), then after the ‘1’, ‘1Xtra’ etc they will quickly fade up the Newsbeat studio which which will have the headline bed playing on a loop for the reader to read the headline over . Then the newsreader will press p

    On Matts story at the weekend he showed the play out screen. as expected it looks like Anthems is pre-mixed in chunks (I don’t think full 30 mins though), I think chucks of 10-15 mins as he accidentally played the same one twice. Hit play on a track and it started playing one 3 or 4 tracks earlier and then went “woops we’ve already played that” so obviously has the wrong mix cued. They all seem to have whooshes as ins and outs. in terms of meta, on the play out screen it had the mix highlighted and then each track was just added as a note below, obvs for DJ reference but don
  13. I don’t think he will go anytime soon. His show performs really well on Radio 1 and him and Chris work really well with the target audience. Can’t see why they would.
  14. Will be interesting to see who covers the chart. I have a feeling it will be Vick & Katie
  15. I agree I don’t really like Anthems anymore, feels unnecessary. They could just slip a couple of classic turns into the playlist throughout the day. Or make some classic mixes available on BBC Sounds. I always thought Party Anthems was good 6-7 as it kind of symbolised end of the working week and start of the weekend. Bit pointless 3-4. If they wanted to bring Annie Mac forward I would of done Official Chart 3-5 and Party Anthems 5-5:45.
