Level of Geekiness: Getting started

Level of Geekiness: Getting started (2/6)



  1. No Greg is off for 2 weeks,then he’s back for the final week of Scott & Chris then he’s just got a few days after the following Monday (which is a bank holiday) he’s back mid week
  2. I wonder if Rickie’s partner is due soon and he’ll take a few weeks paternity in August, hence why they’ve got Vicky in?
  3. Yeah, if anything the regular cover of Breakfast and afternoons/drive if both are away would probably be a bit of a sweetener for Matt & Mollie remaining on weekends.
  4. That’s interesting, as July is his Early Breakfast month? Is that the first time someone’s covered a show (not EB) during their month?
  5. Wow! Was not excepting that news. There’s a quote from Roman welcoming him alongside Sonny & Sian, so appears no one is leaving that show
  6. I think Bluestraw meant Katie and Dean, because they’ve listed who’d replace Dean
  7. Glad I wasn’t the only one who was confused by Aled’s quote about lockdown. Maybe a mistake? I don’t think this is such bad news for Radio 1 - or Greg on Breakfast - because all youth stations are down. If you look at Matt Deegan’s blog, he states it’s higher % of older listeners who are going. There is just not enough younger people coming in to replace them. This is kinda good news for the Radio 1 team as it means the content is on target. There’s just a wider issue that the target audience doesn’t listen to radio overall as much. Adam Bowie’s blog states the % for which each show is down. We don’t know the numbers, so it’s hard to gauge too much. But it’s the first time we’ve had a breakdown of any sort: Greg is down 7.9% RM&C 12.4% Scott & Chris 4.5% Vick & Jordan 7.5% The BBC Sounds data out today also shows Under 35’s listening and RM&C are the only daytime show not to make the Top 10, plus losing the highest %. Does not look great for them.
  8. Should Vick & Jordan take some holiday coordinated together? Easier said than done, I know, but that’s another week with the drive show not quite being “normal”. They’ve not had a long run together in a few months now? (Including by this time next month!)
  9. Not sure if it’s been noted here that next Monday, is Katie & Vicky on for Scott and Dean is in for Jordan with Vick. Then it’s Katie & Dean on 1pm for the rest of the week.
  10. Not sure I agree with that comment from Moyles. He did not want to adapt his style (he's still doing the same type of show on Radio X!) - whereas I see Greg as much more of a Scott style presenter. He adapts, changes to suit the 'current' sound of Radio 1 and more importantly keeping the listener as the star of the show means he could easily go on for 6+ years. (Whereas Grimmy had the celebrity culture that was getting a little bit boring towards the end of his time).
  11. Mollie isn’t pregnant? Unless I’ve missed something? I can totally see Rickie and Melvin just doing mid mornings between them, no need to add a third person into an already established duo. I think Sarah makes more sense for Dance Anthems. It gives her a nice profile boost for a few months & like has been said, Arielle does a lot of DJing at the weekend. R2 is a bit more of a up in the air situation. But I think Sara is definitely a more long term solution for Breakfast. Scott on Drive would be great and then maybe Tina Daheley or Victoria Derbyshire to take the midday show eventually - from Salford.
  12. To answer my own question, I guess Matt & Mollie fit this. As they did 1-4 before Weekend Breakfast. Are there any examples on the weekday schedule?
  13. Isn’t his Radio 4 show quite jokey anyway? It’s basically clips from the BBC archive alongside some tedious theme… if Greg was to move away from music radio, I expect 5Live would be more his bag than Radio 4. But, there’s no reason why Greg couldn’t remain on R1 in a lower profile slot after his Breakfast stint eventually (hopefully not anytime soon!) ends. There were those rumours that they offered Moyles the 10pm slot, for example. Has anyone ever returned to a slot? Just thinking that Greg has obviously already done the 1pm show, so the only “new” move would be the Live Lounge.
  14. I love Katie and Jordan together. But it’s a shame we’ve not had any solo Jordan since he started on Drive! We’ve had 2 weeks of Vick (when J had Covid and the week after next!). Obviously it seems R1 are in a bit of a pickle week after next as Matt & Mollie are away filming still, Scott and Jordan off too. I still don’t understand why they haven’t put Katie on Drive like she always covers and someone else in for Scott? I’d quite like to have heard Sam & Danni do it for a week. Also on the subject on them, shame they can’t cover Matt & Mollie!
  15. I don’t think these are going to be streams like Relax or Dance. They’re already on Sounds under the Music tab, it’s just a collection of playlists?
