    I had a drink or two with him at the Big Weekend in Middlesborough, and he still wanted to take the beer cups back to get 10p in return. So down to earth 😂

    So proud and excited for Aled. What do we all reckon will happen with the station going forward as it was hinted there will be exciting changes.
    There will be a heavier social media and digital presence that's almost a guarantee. 
    The daytime music playlist may be looked into a bit more he's such a big pop music fan so can see it becoming more 80% pop chart hits and 20% Alternative genres. 
    The schedule will remain un touched for a while as he would've had a real say over changes in the past year or so. However i would expect anytime now an announcement that Jordan North has got Friday-Sundays 10-1 when Lockdown schedule is over. 
    What's everyone's thoughts?

    Hi everyone!

    My name is Isaac and I’m currently a Computer Science student. I am also a massive radio geek as well – I’ve been listening to Radio 1 now for 6 years and to The Official Chart for nearly 6 and a half years.

    I’ve been a long time lurker on this forum (5 years I think!) and I’ve loved reading the comments and posts about Radio 1 ever since I found this. I’ve always wanted to join in the fun with comments and posts of my own but I’ve either delayed putting it off or been too shy to make a move. Hopefully, with everything strange going on, now is the right time.

    I look forward to getting more involved with the forum during times of big discussion here, whatever happens to Radio 1. Maybe a new presenter might join. Maybe Scott Mills will do 9 years in the afternoons. Maybe Jordan North will get the primetime slot he deserves. But for now … thanks for having me!

    Thank you for organising this! The results are very interesting but mostly what I expected really. Although I didn’t realise this forum had so much love for Arielle but I don’t think that’s a bad thing. I would be very happy for a future radio 1 schedule to look like that.

    The Results
    There are four parts to this results post:
    My interpretation of the dream schedule based on the results Pie charts for the votes for each show Chart of the top 25 presenters based on total number of votes across the poll Other fun facts (including popularity of double acts) My interpretation of the dream schedule based on the results
    Where a presenter is the most popular choice for multiple slots, they are chosen for the one where there is no alternative who is both popular and available (i.e. the presenter in second place has been chosen elsewhere).
    Despite the fact that Matt and Mollie were voted most popular for weekend breakfast, as Matt was more popular on his own overall (throughout the entire poll), I have decided to put Matt solo down for that slot.
    Weekdays (Mon to Fri)
    04:00 to 06:30 – Adele Roberts
    06:30 to 10:00 – Greg James
    10:00 to 13:00 – Arielle Free
    13:00 to 16:00 – Scott and Chris
    16:00 to 19:00 – Jordan North
                                Scott Mills for Chart on Fridays

    There were 63 responses. 67% of responses favoured including Friday in the weekday schedule, leaving only 33% favouring a three day weekend. The most popular new presenters were (in no particular order): Riyadh Khalaf, Abbie McCarthy, Gregor Davidson, Jessica Maciel and Vick Hope. Matt Edmondson is more popular alone than with Mollie. Dev and Alice are more popular together than apart. Dev was slightly more popular than Alice. Cel and Katie are more popular together than apart. Katie is more popular than Cel. Scott and Chris are more popular as a duo than Scott is solo. The only new double act suggested a significant number of times is Annie and Grimmy. Rickie, Melvin and Charlie were always voted as a trio other than for dance anthems where Charlie was preferred solo.

    Mollie on Mids would be dreadful. I really don’t think it’ll happen. She’s not got the right style to do it, she sort of talks in sound bites a lot when on her own a bit like Maya, and just doesn’t come across as authentic.

    anothernerd reacted to OohErr in Saturday sports show on Radio 1   
    That's an interesting suggestion - sport is generally something you don't hear much about on Radio 1, outside of breakfast news. I wonder if it would just be too much of a risk, given that for a lot of people, sport is just a turn off. Still, I think it's something Radio 1 could do very well, particularly coverage of women's sports.

    anothernerd reacted to OohErr in What Radio 1 Presenters do we miss?   
    It's interesting actually, maybe I'm just remembering wrong but at the time, although he was controversial generally, amongst Radio 1 fans Moyles was universally popular. But as time has passed since the show ended, the collective memory of it seems to have changed and it's treated like an embarrassing relic. 
    For me the show was the thing that made me fall in love with radio, it was everything a breakfast show should be and I think Lee has it right when he uses the word "magic" to describe what Chris created. But Toby also has a valid point when he mentions the racist and homophobic incidents, and as a huge fan of the show I'm not really sure how to reconcile the two. What is clear though is that Chris has been on a huge journey in recent years, maybe sped up by friends like Aled and Hirsty, and it's hard to believe when you hear some of the things he's come out with recently that he's the same guy who used the word "gay" in a derogatory way and constantly perved over female guests/team members. I'd expect and hope he looks back on the way he used to be and cringes - I read his book recently and whilst fascinating, it made for some pretty uncomfortable reading in parts. I guess the show has to be looked back on, like most things, as a product of its time, and appreciate the things that made it so brilliant and compelling whilst acknowledging the aspects that were problematic.

    anothernerd reacted to DC in Origin Of Whoooing   
    It started with Mark & Lard's afternoon show on Radio 1, who were on that slot from 1998 - 2004. For me they were genius but you have to have to that sense of humor to get them. Basically they used to do a multitude of 'spoof' quizzes, where Lard (Marc Riley) would go into the other studio and pretend to be some wayward maniac caller into the show to play the quiz.
    The 'whooooo' came from one called 'It's a Mystery'. Where there would be weird clues to guess who the celeb was, Lard on the other end of the phone would never get the answer. And when revealed (someone usually well known) there would be a few seconds silence followed by a loud 'WHHOOOOOOOOOO!!!' You can hear a clip here.

    Scott and Chris are probaly the best thing on radio 1, they’re always funny. They are one of the best radio shows in the whole UK. Even if they leave radio 1- id follow them to wherever they go.
    ive been enjoying it a lot this year with the return of innuendo bingo! And ‘superfan Steve’ that’s wicked- shows how few celebs listen to R1? I seem to remember people like Olly Murs and Graham Norton used to listen back in the day! 
    I think Scott’s 2nd LOLathon just shows how funny him and Chris are- at least there a duo that get on and doesn’t feel constructed *cough cough Matt and mollie*. 
    Despite Scott being in his 40s he sounds more young and fresh then ever!

    Actually I think your theory could be one that’s correct - after all Scott is already doing drive on a Friday so why not add the other four 
    His Dance anthems has been renamed too to Party Anthems 
    What I think will happen is there will be major changes when the new controller for Radio 1&2 is announced (has it been?) if this is Ben Cooper as predicted maybe he’ll make major changes 
     
    But yes I 100% agree Scott’s show sounds fresher than ever and it’s also been really good to hear him solo as well

    It's funny you say that - literally this week, someone sent me a load of episodes of the Hirsty's Overdose podcast. They're all here (I wouldn't have used Telegram to host them but oh well): https://t.me/hirstysdailydose
    That show was legendary, like you I'm too young to have heard it when it was broadcast (I'm also not from Yorkshire). If you want to hear some breathtaking pre-Sachsgate radio, have a search on YouTube for "Danny Dumps". I'd love to hear more if anyone else has recordings.
    Another show from before my time I'm very keen on - Mark and Lard. And one from my time, The Matt Edmondson Show on Wednesday nights. I've never heard another show like it since.

    For me, theres been loads of great radio- im either too young or i didn't even knew existed or possibly forgetten about 
    The Chris Moyles Show - Obviously one of my all time fav radio shows. The relaxed format was just so different to anything i was used to. Same with Scott's Drivetime show.- I miss Chappers and Beccy and Laura. Chris is good as well.
    Ive been getting quite into a local radio show called "Hirsty's Daily Dose" Though i can only find clips or the odd podcast here or there. From what i have heard it sounded brilliant. Does anyone have any podcasts/shows they can send me? I'd really like to listen some more.
    I also miss both Dev and Matt's weekend shows(before greatest hits). They were brill. Honeslty both were worth waking up for. Not like him and Mollie who seem to be average. But i really do like Dev and Alice. The format is amazing they get on so well. They seem like a perfect match. 
    What shows do you guys miss?
