  1. A little off-topic, as it relates to a different station, but didn't want to open up a whole new thread just for this, so .... Well done, Craig Charles - and well-deserved too ,,, Craig Charles to host new BBC Radio 6 Music weekday afternoon show - Media Centre
  2. All we need now is DLT dressed as a chicken ,,,
  3. Well, apart from the 'Prince Philip' interlude - but let's not rake over that ground again ,,,
  4. Indeed. Extending my previous idea - Could then throw-in an 'In Concert' hour on 6Music, 9pm Saturdays. So then there would be a run of three hours altogether, of various shades of Rock, over three stations ... Caters amply for the leather-trousered amongst us, without making serious disruptions to any particular schedule - How's that for joined-up thinking?
  5. I still think there's a place for a Rock Show - just not on Sundays! - Neatest solution would be to give it 7pm-8pm on Saturdays. That would just shave the first hour off the '1Xtra Takeover', and dedicated head-bangers could continue their adventure at 8pm with the R2 Rock Show ...
  6. The Rock Show is all wrong on a Sunday, that's for sure.
  7. Consensus on these pages is that R1 is in pretty good shape right now - And I have no quibble with that. HOWEVER! - What's the one* thing that you would fix? If you had the power? - The one thing that is obviously wrong, or not quite working? It could be a matter of presentation, mix of music & speech, scheduling, whatever. Just try to home in on one* thing, cheers 🙂 *Ok - maybe two things -- three at an absolute push ....
  8. Wow, you've got DECADES of turbulence ahead of you 😉
  9. Well, for the old farts amongst us, the early 90's was hard to beat, but yes, the station is certainly in good health at the moment.
  10. Moyles was at his most compelling when you had to accidentally 'discover' him, in the very early morning.
  11. Not particularly. I've always listened to a mixture, since I was a kid. Never really understood why there isn't more 'channel hopping', like there is with TV. The 50th birthday of R1 did re-kindle my innate love for that station though ...
  12. Each to their own. She's not for me - not at that time-slot, at any rate. I now give Matt & Mollie an hour at 1pm, then Paul Gambaccini an hour at 2pm, on R2 ...
  13. For the record, I miss her Saturday show 😞
