  1. He sounds great. But I’d like to think Scott has a high chance of taking on R2 Breakfast eventually, considering he missed out on R1. So maybe a few years on afternoons then a switch? But probably not anytime soon!
  2. Matt appears to be off the weekend after, but also no Best New Pop scheduled.
  3. Isn’t it produced by a company who are based in Salford?

  5. Didn’t Maya do Friday’s with Scott alongside Saturday 10-1 straight away? Then moved to 10-1 both days when Friday officially became part of the weekend? Vick is an interesting signing, be good to hear how she copes away from commercial radio. I don’t rate Katie much when covering other shows, she’s fine on Life Hacks though

  8. Alice should’ve made it onto a weekday daytime slot really
  9. I’ll be honest, don’t rate Arielle - but I’m never awake for weekend early breakfast, so didn’t bother me. But I think she’ll clearly be the weekend cover for Dev/Jordan now. It’s a shame about the inconsistency, would be nice to at least have weekdays vs weekends in line. I wonder if Anthems will see Matt & Mollie do the first set and then Jordan from 10:30 (just to mirror the week day show times?) Very happy Jordan has 3 shows a week, overdue!
  10. What do you mean? Anthems 10-11 isn’t pre recorded? As they regularly give out mentions.
  11. They have still been appearing on each other’s weeks to play features like Beat Fighter. i wondered if it was more a technical arrangement that meant they weren’t together. The first week of the new schedule they were (Alice in the Studio, Dev at Home) but when their show came round again with Dev in the Studio... Alice wasn’t on because “She has rubbish WiFi” ??‍♂️
  12. Not true. It’s her style & has not really changed in the last few years. I am really going to miss Dev & Alice together. It is definitely the best weekend show right now by a mile. Once they found their stride, they gelled well together & it’s my type of humour.
  13. I’m missing the 6:30 till 7am bit of Greg’s show. Usually a space for a bit of random silliness and just a little “club” for those listening. It’s going to be a shame this week when we effectively lose the 10-11 hour to Anthems. I agree it’s hit & miss on the 11-3 slot. Scott’s weeks are great, I like the golden moments & the quiz is great fun everyday too. But then Clara’s weeks leave a lot to be desired as they’re just bland shows. You could argue it suits the slot better though (work day etc) but I don’t want to talk Scott out of his show!! Weekends. The rotation is fine, but yes, like you’ve said I do miss Dev & Alice being on together. How haven’t they made it work? Matt & Mollie seem to alternate who is at home/in the studio, so do Ricky, Melvin & Charlie. Jordan’s shows have been great too, he’s got some really fun features. Ironically more regular features from his 1 show a week than Matt & Mollie seem to have running at the moment. I do wonder if reverting back for the ‘normal’ schedule could be an easy way to make a few changes. Possibly to weekends yeah.
  14. Not great if that’s still apart of Greg’s show!
  15. They’re not! I think it’s changed to better pool resources over the outbreak.
  16. I agree, as I’m a few months behind it means I can listen at my leisure. I do wonder what the stats are for older (18 months ish) podcasts. Because surely there’s no widespread appeal apart from amongst geeks like us!
  17. They’re all on the BBC Website still... https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02nrv1j/episodes/downloads
  18. Betty Lish is the female breakfast VO.
  19. Like has previously been pointed out, people with kids won’t work Christmas Day. As he’s now regular breakfast host, Greg is also ruled out. I suppose the obvious idea would be Jordan North on Breakfast and Arielle Free on Afternoons once Scott has done his last Christmas morning.
  20. BBC planning biggest expansion of its national radio network since 2002. New ‘spin-off’ streams in Sounds could include 24hr rolling news version of 5Live, and extensions of R1 and R2 with different playlists. https://twitter.com/mattkmoore/status/1198183515159965696 Full details in The Times, but their website is behind a paywall. I’m sure it won’t be long before someone else picks it up though...
  21. Chris is very much Scott’s “sidekick”. The others are all “co-presenters”.
  22. So far this year, Scott has been covered by: Dev & Alice (twice), RMC & now Jordan?
  23. Is this show live? As I am pretty sure Claudia usually pre-records it. Which actually puts you in the strange situation where Claudia doesn’t do her pre-recorded Radio 2 show for 3 months a year because she’s on BBC One pre-recorded for Strictly results on a Sunday evening.
  24. So because of Strictly, Dev only seems to be doing Sundays for now? He was off last Fri/Sat too.
  25. I wonder if the changes to the start time of ‘Weekend Breakfast’ will mean we’ll see a shake up to features and content in the show? For example, they open the lines for “Pop Luck” about 6:50 and play it about 7:15. I think the show is sounding quite stale already, so could probably do with it?
