  1. Tomorrow's a bit different... Mollie and Dean (in for Matt) in for Greg tomorrow Sian Eleri in for Dean James Cusack in for Matt & Mollie Jack Saunders in for Scott on the Official Chart.
  2. He seems to be very much a big deal for festival bookings atm, Capital have announced him as their main billing for the Summertime Ball as well. Pà Salieu and Rina Sawayama have been added to the Future Sounds stage on Saturday and Sunday respectively.
  3. Harry Styles is the Sunday headliner for Big Weekend.
  4. Can guarantee Clive Myrie wouldn't do Newsnight at this stage. His profile is way to high at the BBC for that... I'd imagine he'll gradually become the main face of the BBC News At Six or Ten when either Huw or George decide to step down, he's already one of the main deputies on both programmes. I doubt the main newsroom will want to lose him to a late night programme on BBC Two. That's my take on it anyay. Going back to R1, you could be right in regards to Dean & Katie. My comments were based off if they wanted to replace Scott & Chris with another duo, and the fact both are based in Salford.
  5. At one point, I'd agree on the latter point... But I'm starting to think he'll get a better slot. We'll see I suppose. I think Victoria Derbyshire may well actually be a shoe in for the the vacant Newsnight job. She was stuck on News Channel shifts after the loss of her show, but she's increasingly been reading the main BBC One bullitens as well. Tina Daheley would be an excellent replacement for Jeremy Vine (who I think would probably be the next change on daytime), although of course relocating out of London can always limit taking the job on (see BBC Breakfast). Going back on topic... They've paired up Dean and Katie several times now, although they are good broadcasters in their own right (Katie, especially), if they wanted to maintain a duo on afternoons, I think this is the route they're going down now. Ricky, Melvin & Charlie may well remain where they are for the rest of their R1 career, although any change to afternoons or drive, it wouldn't be a bad punt to put them there.
  6. With them wanting to move a daytime R2 show out of London, I could see OJ Borg getting a promotion from overnights, of course... He broadcasts from Salford already. I'd say he's one to watch for either Ken or Steve Wright's show. I can definitely see a scenario where Zoë leaves entirely and Scott gets drive. I think it's almost a guarantee that Sara Cox will make it to the breakfast slot eventually.
  7. Not weekdays but... Dev did two stints on weekend breakfast. He did a very short stint when he moved over from 1xtra, replacing Nick Grimshaw... before he then moved to Early Breakfast. Of course, he moved back to Weekends in 2014.
  8. That'll be Eurovision week, with Scott doing the Semi Final coverage with Rylan again. Nice to see James Cusack getting some more regular cover as well, wouldn't mind hearing him covering early breakfast... Which I don't think he's actually done yet.
  9. Didn't they cover for Adele Roberts on weekend breakfast one weekend?
  10. James Cusack is a particular one I hope they hold onto in a Jordan North type role (before he gained Sunday mornings). He's covered across the weekend, and although they still try and class it as the weekend... he's covering the Friday afternoon show in a few weeks, which is still a weekday slot. I don't think he's covered early breakfast yet though.
  11. I assume they'll update it closer to the time.
  12. 21:00-22:00 on Easter Monday now listed as: 15 years since Favourite Worst Nightmare Arctic Monkeys on Radio 1 Celebrating Arctic Monkeys' second album - Favourite Worst Nightmare, released in 2007.
  13. Yes, he's this month's Friday early breakfast presenter.
  14. They did the same kind of thing with This Morning a couple of years back, and it was obvious then. It is Scott's birthday so I couldn't tell at first if they were just being silly today... But it's obvious now. Did Arielle and Greg sound any 'different' ttoday
  15. Scott & Chris are acting odd now too. Got to be something to do with Saturday Night Takeaway...
  16. Bangers is being played early today. It's not often they move it from 14:40.
  17. They do it annually, which is enough. I wasn't suggesting replacing the Radio 1 Relax day on the bank holiday Monday, but they did it on the Saturday last year. I'm just talking from a personal point of view, but I do look forward to it, and it generates a lot of listener interaction.
  18. Urgh. I really couldn't listen to them the last time they were on. It was actually painful to listen to imo. Presumably one massive plug for their podcast. I really don't understand why they can't use the opportunity for previous Christmas/Friday EB to cover instead. Feels like a wasted opportunity. Would make sense than Jamie & Spencer, and Scarlett Moffatt randomly being paired up with Katie Thistleton (who is great on her own anyway). No sign of a 10 hour takeover over the Easter Bank Holiday, unless they're holding it back for one of the bank holiday weekends later in the year. It would be a shame if they've ditched it for good (hopefully not).
  19. I assume it'll change closer to the time but they have both the lunchtime and teatime Newsbeat listed for Good Friday, which being a bank holiday.. won't be the case.
  20. Surely 'in theory'... the logical cover for drive if Vick and Jordan are ever off at the same time is Katie Thistleton, who is the main dep on drive for both of them anyway. If they insist on a duo, stick Dean on with her. He's not done any cover since that week in for Scott alongside Katie.
  21. As good as it would be... I think Radio 1 have moved on from The Killers. They've firmly made the transition to 'Radio 2' artists
  22. Not 100% but I'm in the Midlands so don't want to pass up the opportunity to go with it being fairly local so it'll be a shame if I miss out on tickets.
  23. This has been discussed numerous times before. I'm sure he's more than capable (he's equal to Scott on 5live as a co host) but I'm sure if he wanted to or the bosses wanted him to after all these years, it would've happened. The dynamic works well, and personally I like when someone else comes in on the show. It's been a while since it's happened as S&C are both off at the same time nowadays. I used to enjoy the dynamic between Chris and Matt Edmondson, and later Jordan when they used to sit in.
  24. She's done bullitens before, and she's been doing the Asian Network afternoon bullitens when they split them last year. I assume that means that AN will no longer have the seperate bullitens, and ALL of them will be simulcast again?
  25. There's been a fair few 'new names' reading bullitens recently I've noticed. Rebecca Swash, Mitch Mansfield and Jordan Kenney to name a few.
