    xxladybarefootxx got a reaction from BBCAaron in Scott Mills signs new contract with Radio 1   
    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)

    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.

    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.

    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!
