  1. I can't see changes this drastic all at once. Would turn away so many listeners who dislike change. Breakfast with Greg will stay for a few years I think, I think Scott has a bit longer too (just doing more R2 cover as well). I can see Grimmy going in 2020, maybe Clara Amfo as well.
  2. Last minute Jordan in for Maya this morning according to his tweet!
  3. It's Jamie Theakston & Amanda Holden duo isn't it? Yeah interesting 6:30 til 10. I still think Radio 1 Breakfast needs to be 6-10 tho. Compete with Capital better.
  4. The current jingles and imaging are custom made for the breakfast show. He did a cool little video on it all: https://youtu.be/qtVd5wtPIlg
  5. I'm late teens so am pretty much exactly R1's target audience. I only started listening R1 Breakfast since Greg started, I was not a fan of Grimmy (although I do think he has been better on drive). Absolutely love Greg. Genuinely funny and as @Vorti said above, he is a nice boost in the morning. Some light entertainment with his randomness. I do agree, I feel like he needs a co host like Chris Smith - someone to bounce his stupid banter off haha. Biggest thing though is I think we just need a refresh of features as he's been doing the same ones since the start. If he did that it would sound like a new show again. I am going to give Capital Breakfast With Roman Kemp a try next week. My local capital station had the most annoying breakfast presenters of all time so I've never listened but will be interesting to listen to the new national show next week.
  6. I can't see them splitting Matt & Mollie up. I think they will both be on together quite a bit I we Christmas but not separately. I'll probably be wrong though!
  7. Following up on Welovemoylespart2's post about Fantasy Christmas schedules, I was thinking, If you were the controller of Radio 1, what would your dream schedule be? What would keep you listening 24/7! Here's mine: Weekdays 6:30-10:00: Radio 1 Breakfast With Greg James 10:00-13:00: Adele Roberts (Feat. Live Lounge) 13:00-16:00: Matt & Mollie 16:00-19:00: Scott & Chris 19:00-21:00: Future Sounds With Annie Mac & Nick Grimshaw 21:00-23:00: Charlie Sloth Weekends 6:30-10:00: Weekend Breakfast With Dev 10:00-13:00: Jordan North 13:00-16:00: Alice Levine 16:00-19:00: Chart With Scott/Dance Anthems with Mistajam/Life Hacks with cel&katie.
  8. There has to be a Radio 1 Breakfast With Greg James on Christmas Day this year. Just because its his first year I think he would want to do it as well as the bosses. ...also really hope Jordan does New Years Eve Party thing again, that was quality last year.
  9. Hi!....and Welcome Interesting list there....for me: 1) Radio 1 Breakfast With Greg James 2) Scott Mills (and Chris) 3) Matt & Mollie 4) Jordan North 5) The 8th With Charlie Sloth 6) Adele Roberts
  10. Very interesting changes. Yes I thought breakfast was going to be named in that way. Also surprises me they haven't added "Weekend Breakfast" back to "Dev & Alice" yet now they have finished drive time. Ultimately I think they are trying to create "Shows" rather then just the presenter/personality (as this is what happens on commercial - Capital is the same all the time just with different presenters). They want Radio 1 to have "shows" that people specifically choose to listen too.
  11. Least this was consistent but I still think it has been done wrong. It should be..... Dev & Alice Arielle and Will sit in. Radio 1's Greatest Hits with Cel Spellman Jordan North Cel sits in for Jordan Matt & Mollie Jordan Sits in for Matt & Mollie. I just then thing when they are doing show features like "Get Your Clips Out" or "Best New Pop" the iPlayer version goes into the right show category so people can find it.
  12. At the end of breakfast today Greg said that he would be back on Tuesday after bank holiday but the schedule on Monday says his show is still on. Anyone know what's happening? Also....I always thought they should just do Weekend Schedule on bank holidays, just makes sense.
  13. I think this mornings shows was REALLY good. They nailed it. Balance between music and chat/features was spot on the type of music played fits what R1 is all about. You can really tell they care about this show because so much work has gone into to it to actually make it sound good. The jingles, imaging and 'highlights' and 'coming up' packages sound so smooth - this is something that I really hope stays and doesn't disappear over time with laziness. A little more interaction with everyone in the studio would be nice but I guess that may come when the show is not quite as busy! Really looking forward to tomorrow now!
  14. Yes I agree. I think the consistency has been horrendous recently. Especially regarding cover DJs, I feel the BBC have allowed to many key people at R1 to have time off at once. It means we are getting random shows all the time.
  15. Whenever there is loads of cover on R1 I always find it proper confusing how they title the shows... Do you think the show should remain the same with "sits in" in the subtitle or do you think the cover DJs show title should be used: E.G: When Jordan covers Adele, should it be... Adele Roberts Jordan North Sits in OR Jordan North Jordan Sits in for Adele I always thought the first one made more sense if Jordan is doing Adele's features such as new music friday or best new pop because then it means that all of this falls into the same section on iPlayer in catch up. I don't know, R1 just seem to be all over the place with how they are titling stuff at the moment anyway.
  16. i think a "Going To Work" song would be pretty funny start for the first few weeks. Then they can ditch it like "Going Home Song". But think that would really set up the kind of show it will be.
  17. Does anyone thing BBC Podcasts will ever be on Spotify? I always listen to Podcasts on there so find myself forgetting about the BBC ones every now and then purely because all my podcasts are in the same place (apart from BBC). Also, you cannot listen to BBC iPlayer Radio App with Sonos which is how I pretty much how I listen to everything. Just a hit inconvenient really. Would be nice for them to publish on Spotify as well as iTunes etc.
  18. really surprises me that Grimmy goes to DriveTime, not sure what that is going to be like. Breakfast with Greg is going to be really good though.
  19. I thought they were reverting to playing the Top 40 in full? Not enough time to do that in 1hr45? Glad to see Dance Anthems staying though.
  20. ahh interesting stuff. Thanks! just out of interest, how much do you think the BBC pay for a jingle package like this? Sure will!
  21. Hi, Been reading the blog for a while but never posted. Really interesting discussion so I thought I would join! Been listening to Matt for ages, love his style. Always hear this backing music on his show, really like the sound of it. Is it a song or is it something custom the BBC will have had made for them? Clip from todays show: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1poki1Xqe5ha8dka4YGLxnA_EHRY0pbGx/view?usp=sharing Thanks, James
