  1. My memory escapes me, but didn’t this come up with one of the guest on their 5Live show a few months back? I think they were talking about whether people in the same household could take on each other for it… interested to see if it does come back and how!
  2. I’m afraid I don’t know enough about previous long standing presenters. I do think, though, that Scott is going to stay at R1 for a long time. His style has evolved over the years and proves that he delivers what the listeners want - he’s guided by what listeners, producers and co-hosts say/do - he’s adaptable. The massive shift I noticed when the pandemic started I think is evidence enough, that when everyone was feeling the strain, Scott upped his game massively to deliver the relief that was needed in ways that I’m not sure other DJs could have pulled off. My comparison in thinking this is Moyles when he was on R1 and in the ‘experienced presenter’ category - opinionated, crass, and just all about himself and nothing else (just an observation and not necessarily a criticism, because I enjoyed listening to Moyles back in the day)
  3. I was really apprehensive about this, as I wrote above, but I actually enjoyed listening yesterday and thought it was quite fun having Greg, Vick and Jordan on throughout the day. Today, however I’m back to my original opinion of this being way too planned and forced. Too much repetition I think, and as jordifens said, the password will only be ‘guessed’ when they have planned for it to be over. I would have been happy if he got out on the guess of Albert and they let him out to see the giraffes! They have been to some cool places, so it seems like this could have been pulled off as a road trip as originally billed, and maybe had some Greg vs Vick & Jordan stuff for competition (as it seems to me they are trying to solidify Vick & Jordan as a double act in people’s minds). It could have been fun without all the scripting I think.
  4. I agree, I was hoping for some Chris stark travel guides, and a mayor of where would have been great. I was picturing a similar feel to when they took Chris on the road to the lol-a-thon I suppose. I’m hoping the plan is that Greg will escape before the end of the week so he can spend some time out with Jordan & Vick.
  5. I’m a bit gutted with this evening’s announcement to be honest. I was hoping for a more natural introduction of Vick & Jordan to the weekday team, but this feels much too scripted and set up. As others have said, this idea has been done before, and I can’t help but feel that after over a year of lock downs, I’m not going to find listening to Gregg locked in a small space very entertaining. If they pull it off well, I could be proved wrong, but I would have preferred a true road trip with some cheerful vibes personally.
  6. Thank you for podcasting the lolathon
  7. I’m not a technical radio person, but I have put the muffledness down to Scott not having time to fix his broken tooth on a Saturday morning
  8. This is a long shot maybe - but would anybody have a copy of the podcast from 21/01/2014 they would be happy to share with me please? It is listed here in the podcast archive but there isn't a file to download for that date. It's extreme innuendo bingo and putting the vamps on hold... I believe it's the first time they ever played bamboleo so I'd love to give it a listen
  9. A good few years ago. The first reference I could find on twitter was 2013: https://mobile.twitter.com/chris_stark/status/392642648781369344?lang=en and this clip on Youtube of the actual interview Don’t know if that helps but it may take you back to circa 2013 for your podcast searches
  10. I read the book last week for the first time and loved the story about the guy waiting in reception while he was doing the breakfast show! Brilliant find, thanks @OohErr for sharing this link, I'm giving this a listen tonight!
  11. I’ve been able to watch the musical on youtube, I don’t imagine the movie will be life changing but I was intrigued, and found it a bit bizarre that I couldn’t find it on here or anywhere else. The BBC website still has it listed as a thing but the video is no longer available... all I’ve been able to find is a clip of the dog with his helmet on with Jessie J signing from one of her fan channels ??‍♀️ Guess it’s completely disappeared!
  12. Thank you anothernerd, I hadn’t tried that but searched earlier and could only find a link to the bbc site where the video is no longer available. Trawled Youtube too, I guess it’s just disappeared off the face of the ether! Or is hidden somewhere in the depths of time before metadata was considered important
  13. Hi all, I am massively late to the party, but I've been listening to some old podcasts from here to get me through the freezing cold, wet start to winter. I'm into December 2011, and they've just premiered the Radio 1 movie... but I can't find a video of it online anywhere! Does anyone have a link to view it please? I've managed to be able to catch up with most of the videos mentioned so far without too much hassle (even It's Chris!). If anyone can point me in the right direction I would be very grateful
