  1. If we're talking the later end of the timescale for shows to move to other parts of the country.. it could be possible that there will be some movement with either Ken or Steve's slot on Radio 2. OJ Borg i can see moving to daytimes from Salford (where he broadcasts his overnight shows from).
  2. I'm glad we're getting an outside broadcast. I very much enjoy 'event' radio which i think no other station tops Radio 1 on. The family feel with all the DJ's that comes across on air is especially a highlight which i enjoy. I assume they'll be popping up at various points during the day on Clara, Scott & Grimmy's shows. These summer road trips remind me a bit of the noughties on R1, they did a fair bit of this, especially with Moyles and his team... so it's very reminicent of that (for me at least).
  3. I agree on this too. I'm not a fan of the shortening and mixing of songs. When Greatest Hits first started 10-1, the songs were played in full. Radio 1 aren't fully against playing older tracks from the mid 90's and earlier, especially where dance music is concerned. The likes of Spice Girls and Oasis seem to get a regular look in on features like 10 minute takeover etc. Goes without saying that younger people like older tracks, but as CHR station, it'd be quite jarring if they went back further more often. Still, better than Capital who go back 5-6 years at most if they chuck in a non p

  5. An on air joint farewell party (i know Grimmy doesn't leave until a few weeks after Annie) with the pair of them would make good listening. I hope we get something along those lines.
  6. Who knows. He's well connected in the showbiz world, and of all the R1 DJ's that have left.. he's the one likely to branch out elsewhere. Like Annie, it does sound like it was his decision not to renew his contract. I can see why.. he's took his show as far as he could go and he's going out on a (fairly) high... he's done the top gig with brekkie. I will actually miss him. 14 years is good going. Many of the general listenership tend to disagree but he was the right choice at that time for breakfast. I do think he is a genuinely funny and engaging broadcaster. I wonder if Annie leaving an
  7. The Vick/Jordan pairing probably allows there to be less need for cover, as one can do the show when the other isn't on. Or at least bring in someone else to pair occasionally, as has happened with Matt & Mollie before. As Vick is still paired with Katie on Sundays, it wouldn't surprise me if she fills in with her on occasion.
  8. I'm not surprised he's leaving. He's done the top job, and 3 years on drive. His show is starting to sound a little tired so it'll be a welcome change.. and much deserved promotions for Jordan & Vick, who i'm sure will bounce of each other well... as Jordan works about well with everyone he's on air with at R1. Jordan's moment is finally here... and it was obvious when Vick joined that she would have a bigger role further down the line. That's two major daytime shows changing so hopefully it's secures Scott's future for a while yet.
  9. Just came to say this. He's just announced it on air. Interesting they've paired Jordan with Vick. I'm surprised they haven't kept Vick & Katie together to replace Jordan Fri-Sun.
  10. Hopefully we get a epic big name live lounge on Clara's final show/week. She's been a good strong music DJ in that slot, keeping it consistent and she is the best fit for Future Sounds at this stage (that'll probably be where Jack Saunders ends up eventually though). Same goes for Annie. I'm hoping we get a big send off show for Annie. She's a big figure in the music industry as well as on the radio. For me, it'll be one of those 'end of an era' things that come round every so often. Zane Lowe was probably the last person to leave who left a big hole in a lot of listeners, and before that
  11. In terms of DJ's. You'll just have the opposite impact if you suddenly turn over the daytime schedule, just like that... because of the nature of the station, the listeners listen often for the personalities themselves. Just because presenters have been there a long time, doesn't mean they should be moved on. Scott & Greg's recent awards.. plus regular listener feedback on air and online proves they're doing something right. I'm sure Aled and his team will have a good idea if they're connecting with their target audience. The problem R1 had in the past was the overall station sounded out o
  12. I'm a bit late to the party... but some very interesting points on both sides, i can certainly see valid points about change etc. However, i certainly think that Radio 1 are already in a good place... and that Aled has actually made brilliant progress in the short time he has been in the job. Radio in general has already had an issue in attracting younger listeners, i do not think the radical changes suggested would achieve that. You'd just put off your existing audience. They've always done well to place themselves where their audience are, especially on social media. They jumped straigh
  13. I think that would fall to Matt & Mollie, personally... with them potentially becoming next hosts, talking hypothetically. I do think Greg will have a few more years on breakfast, if he wants it of course.
  14. You're probably right about succession planning. Gradually introducing these 'new' voices to get the listeners used to them is exactly how both Jordan and Arielle came through before getting permanent shows. I can't see anyone pushed out the door for the next year or so, the September changes are quite major It certainly seems like Dean will become a regular daytime cover, especially with his early breakfast stint done.. and he's since been on air several times in recent weeks. Rakeem being part of big weekend can probably be explained by him being this months Friday EB host. Whoever was
  15. They're broadcasting from the roof of broadcasting house looking at instagram. Good to have Scott & Chris on with Jordan, a straight through double shift from their 5live show, now on R1. A little odd that Ricky is broadcasting with another duo/trio of presenters and at different times to Melvin and Charlie, i'm sure there's some logic there, no doubt. It'll be nice to hear presenters on the air together who usually wouldn't be.
