  1. 4/10. Hasn’t been a great year for music really.

  3. Well said, would be nice of them to air some classic dance recordings from Pete Jules etc. Maybe just some classic mixes or interviews to fill an hour or two. Seems a waste to use content you’ve already heard in the week on the main station when they must have years worth of classic shows recorded.
  4. As another wanting to work in radio. My guess would be podcasting. Other than that, I really have no clue I’m sorry.
  5. Defiantly, All tough the odd indie classic may sneak into anthems. (Probably something like seven nation army) I guess they’re just trying to keep up with what’s popular within their target demographic. I do think the indie show was a good wind down. Annie has her future sounds show- Jack has his future artists show. Surely they could have just merged that into Annie’s show and kept the indie show as it was?
  6. I’d say Yasmin Evans as well for the RMC slot. Other then that I completely agree with your guesses.
  7. Surprised Abbie McCarthy hasn’t joined to replace Huw. (Has she even done any cover this year?) I miss Alice a lot, she was one of my fav R1 presenters (up there with Scott and Greg). Used to love her weekend afternoon show, then loved her even more when she moved to weekend breakfast with Dev. Phil’s Sunday shows are nothing short of relaxing. From what I’ve listened to (thanks to the kind people on here) his show with Alice was amazing as well. Dev was a great host, So so funny. I miss the days of ‘The 8th’. He did a great job as the caretaker host better then Sloth in my opinion. I had a feeling he’d be off soon. Once Alice left, he felt a bit out of place. Like he’d outgrown the station. In regards to the new stuff, I Wanted Arielle to get weekend afternoons. Adele seems an odd choice but granted she’s used to the early start Excited to hear the new guys. Especially the Sunday night shows. I wonder if the rotation show will keep the ‘Best New Pop’ branding? I used to really hate Matt and Mollie, but I’ve grown to like them this year. Sad they’re off breakfast now. But good they’re back on the weekend afternoons where they started (they swapped shifts with D+A after about 6 months) I don’t sleep that well, so I’m sure I’ll be hearing lots of Arielle (well deserved). I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. Jordan and Arielle should have their own show. Maybe 5-6 years down the line. The new introducing show is the one I’m looking forward to the most. Feels right to have a new face front it. Huw was great. But once he got bumped off nights. Felt this was him clinging on. Roll on, 2021
  8. What a year 2020’s been (espically for R1) We lose , Alice, Mistajam and Dev oh and Maya + Dotty and Ace from 1xtra also left. BUT we gain One new host (Vick) Four Down. I personally miss Alice. (Still hoping she’s got a better gig lined up) Dev, I’ll miss too. Really used to like his/her weakened breakfast show They were the better duo. Hope a station has swiped both Dev and Alice.
  9. Hmmm... I for one I have never heard of the feature. But the ‘No Need’ clip I believe was a regular play out with Mark and Lard!
  10. 3 shows in one day for Vick... Breakfast, Life Hacks, Chart 1st Look?!
  11. Think he was more on 1xtra back then.
  12. Always thought Grimmy is better when he has a co-host.
  13. Greg or Jordan, they’d be great fun I reckon. Arielle is someone I’d like to chat to as well. Same goes for Charlie from RMC. They all seem so nice on the radio.
  14. They’d never do that. Could see Greg doing more for Radio 2 In the next 5 years, but’s that’s it.
  15. Grimmys been there for years. He’s done breakfast done drive done nights. He’ll be out in the next couple years. His drive time show isn’t great tbh
  16. Good thread, maybe the Moyles marathon or more recently- hide and seek. Great radio bringing listeners and DJ'S together
  17. Aled, yes I know he’s now the boss. But as a presenter I thought it would’ve been great to hear the surgery on daytimes. Maybe after Chris Moyles left?
  18. So Arielle is only on on a Friday? That blows. I want to see her and or and Jordan take drive from Grimmy and move someone new into the old slot.
  19. Shame about Alice. She was one of the few presenters keeping me interested in Radio 1. Been a fan of hers for a few years now. It’s a shame she’s leaving. I wonder with Maya and Alice leaving, Could Vick Hope move in to one of those slots?
  20. Let's be real. Scott's phasing out of Radio 1. He's no longer breakfast cover, He's hosting more Radio 2 shows now. Next time someone leaves Radio 2 Scott will likely move into that slot.
  21. My thoughts, Will anyone care she's left?

    The Nixtape

    Not the biggest Grimmy fan but credit to Grimmy for that! Used to love that feature!
  23. Very interesting indeed. A few votes for Dev on earlies and TCMS at breakfast. My favourite R1 Schedule. I have two ideas for a schedule one I submitted to the GDrive poll. The other I'll post here as it's more fantasy than reality (Mix of 00s-early 10s presenters) More so if a spinoff station launched.. 4-6 Dev 6-10 Chris Moyles 10-1 Sara Cox 1-4 Matt Edmondson 4-7 Scott Mills 7-9 Zane Lowe 9-11 Jo Whiley 11-1 Huw Stephens Friday 4-6 Chart with Reggie 6-7 Anthems with Reggie 7-9 Annie Mac 9-11 Pete Tong 11-1 Judge Jules Saturday 9-11 Chappers and Dave 4-7 Nick Grimshaw and Annie Mac 7-8 Anthems with Colin Murray(Pre Record) 8-11 Westwood Rap Show 11-1 As 1Xtra Sun 9-11 Edith Bowman 4-7 The Surgery with Aled 7-8 Anthems with.. (Guest Host- Pre Record) 8-9 Radio 1 Documentary Weekend 6-9 Vernon Kay 1-4 Greg James
  24. Yeah, I reckon theyll have good chemistry together.
