Whooooooo?! (1/6)



  1. Yasser is in for Scott on the Official Chart this Friday (13th August)

  3. I get what you mean here but Radio 1 is a music station and does already have long links compared to Capital. Especially on Scott & Greg there are easily 5 min gaps between songs at times with features etc. Capital you literally never get more than 30 seconds. I personally think Radio 1 strikes the perfect balance on this
  4. Sad to see Grimmy go as he has been on Radio 1 ever since I started listening. I think Vick & Jordan will be a great combo though. I do believe, from September, R1 will have one of the best schedules it has ever had. Solid shows across the board. Looking forward to hearing it.
  5. Completely agree here. Personally Radio 1 Breakfast is my fav it's ever been (was never a fan of Moyles but I was probs a little too young really) - Greg provides exactly what you need in the morning, a laugh, some stupid stuff that takes you away from what's actually happening in the crazy world and loads of decent (and a wide variety) of music. As others have said I think this is the best R1 has ever been. There isn't a time when I don't want to listen (whereas previously I would have only listened to selective shows). Even most of the cover is pretty good, like Radio 1 Breakfast with Matt & Mollie works really well when Greg isn't there, likewise with Vick & Katie covering for Scott & Chris.
  6. Not entirely related... but I’ve always wondered why ‘6 Music’ is not ‘Radio 2 Extra’, as it basically is to Radio 2 listeners what 1Xtra, 4 Extra, 5LSX are to their sister stations.
  7. 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 though, they can scrap that ?).
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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 for BBC TV yesterday, why on earth they shut down BBC Four and simulcast BBC One, Two, News and Parliament I have no idea. BBC One should have focused on the news coverage and BBC Two should have provided light entertainment (quiz programmes, Attenborough docs or something).
  13. 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 well. From 17:00-18:00 I would have had a Newsbeat Special and then from 6pm Scott Mills could have taken over with regular Newsbeat bulletins and chilled tunes through the evening (Danny then could have taken over through the night etc to continue the chill). From 7am this morning Radio 1 should have returned to usual schedule but with no specialist shows throughout the weekend (The Official Chart should have replaced Dance Anthems). From Monday Radio 1 should be back to normal. I think the above better serves Radio 1’s young target audience as what they have currently is just making people turn off.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
