  1. I'm impressed too. He was pretty good paired with Mollie King too a few months back when he stepped in for Matt Edmondson. The show is coming from Broadcasting House today (I assume tomorrow and Sunday as well).
  2. Nice that R1 are continuing to open up the opportunity for new voices to be heard however... I can't help but think there will be very little room for further opportunities in the near future to reappear. Sam & Danni and James Cusack seem to have got regular cover slots on the station
  3. So Yasser is leaving Asian Network? Any ideas if he's leaving the BBC entirely? He's back on Radio 1 tomorrow on chart duties.
  4. I hope he reintroduces knock offs soon. It's a simple feature but from what I can tell... one of the popular features on R1. As they settle in, I'm sure they'll have time to find what works well and what doesn't.
  5. They did do a full week, yeah. I cannot remember exactly when but I certainly remember them doing it. Edit: It was Monday 9th through to Thursday 12th September 2019.
  6. Grimmy's show seemed to be the home of the celebrity guests? Do you think that practice will continue on the new drive show? I've noticed there is a lot less reliance on celebrity guests, even pre covid.. instead favouring the 'Greg' approach of making the listeners star of the show
  7. As expected... Every show has sounded fresh and on form today. No doubt Jack Saunders will deliver a good show, as he often does and it's good he gets an earlier timeslot. Will be intriguing to listen to how Dean gets on at the weekend. What's great is the line up is also strong on Saturday & Sundays. There's not many weak links with the regular cover voices popping up (James Cusack and Sam & Danni) have both been decent listens too. In terms of cover now, I'm assuming RMC and Vick & Jordan will rarely be all off at once. If they are on occasion, I'll say the likes of Adele Roberts and Arielle Free will still be there to be called upon. Greg- Matt & Mollie as per before Clara- Hopefully Jack although Sian Eleri will pop up on occasion Future Artists- mix of Sian Eleri and Jess Iszatt (the latter popping up on the Power Down Playlist show on occasion) Indie Show- Nels Hylton If Dean is off, is there obligation of the show still coming from Salford? If so, might be another opportunity for James Cusack to get cover slots on the station, as he's already based in the North as a cover DJ for Heart Yorkshire drivetime. Any ideas who will become Scott's cover? In recent times it's been Vick & Katie, and RMC, and before that... Jordan (with Chris). As they usually favour a duo to cover, there's only really Matt & Mollie... and they already have a fair few weeks a year on breakfast duties in addition to their own show.
  8. Indeed. The Music Week article with Aled mentions that he put the feelers out to Clara when she started covering the slot last year how she would feel taking on Future Sounds. It's presumably what was being alluded to in the article about DJ's not being moved out of London... and Clara being at the forefront of their future plans.
  9. Less than an hour in and I think they're onto a winner pairing these two up. Capital's loss is Radio 1's gain where Vick is concerned. And we still have Vick & Katie on Sundays which is always a good listen.

    Ha ha, Scott and Chris announcing it: "03700 100100 on whatsapp or come and find us on Only Fans"
  11. Was going to pretty much start the same thread tomorrow so you've saved me a job ha ha. I'm looking forward to hearing drivetime in particular. I enjoyed Jordan very much as a standalone presenter, which is how he's established himself. However, Jordan works well with pretty much everyone he's shared the Radio 1 airways with so I have no doubt they will click instantly as a duo. It does really feel like a new era, and it feels both like yesterday and a long time since Grimmy and Annie left, so I'm excited to hear how the new schedule sounds after a few weeks of temporary schedules and fill ins.
  12. I agree. Jack's been sounding good on daytimes. I could see him there in the future, depends if he's offered it and wants that chance. I can see him being at the helm of Future Sounds within the coming years though.
  13. When 'new music Friday' came about in 2015, Radio 1 did make a big deal of it, playing most of the weeks new releases on early breakfast after 5am, along with giving those that hadn't been instantly added spot plays throughout Friday. Gradually that's reduced over time
  14. Jamie & Spencer off of Made In Chelsea? I spoke to soon about Radio 1 not relying on tv personalities lol (i know they host a Radio 1 produced podcast, so presumably how that came about). You can tell we're in the middle of summer and inbetween a major schedule changes.
  15. Some people forget he was a specialist DJ before breakfast. Those that criticise on social media saying "i stopped listening to R1 when he joined", forgetting he started 5 years before on Sundays then the evening show. As Chris Stark put it, he's "completed Radio 1". Sunday nights with Annie Mac, Weekend Breakfast, late night, breakfast and drive, he's had a good run and sounds like he's made the decision himself leaving with goodwill on both sides. Will he eventually turn up elsewhere i wonder? I can certainly see him popping up on the TV more now.
  16. Jordan will be really pleased to hear Scott bigging him up. It's not the first time either. Jordan did come through a similar way to Scott, working his way through commercial radio before making it at the BBC. With his pairing with Vick... unless they want a radical change up once Greg decides to pack up on brekkie, i do think they are the next breakfast hosts.
  17. Indeed, although i think she will be great in the Future Sounds slot and it will showcase her love of music. It will be interesting to see if there will be a noticeable difference in the style of music championed. I get the impression, especially where dance music is concerned, that Annie had a big hand in the artists she supported. Although, i imagine Clara will still be required to support these dance artists during Future Sounds. Having both FS, and the Dance Party... there was huge crossover with the artists and music supported. Will the show be exactly the same or will there be a change up? Hottest Record will stay, that's for sure.
  18. I'd hazard a guess Vick & Katie (or Katie on her own) will remain chart cover. I'm assuming with them doing cover for Jordan (and Vick i assume will be off part of August anyway) is the reason Yasser has been drafted in. It's been a good while since he appeared on Radio 1. I recall he used to stand in for Dev on weekend breakfast on occasion (he used to do weekend brekkie during Big Weekend) so it's good to hear some existing BBC voices being drafted in as well as giving new voices a chance. Harpz Kaur off of Asian Network is covering Matt & Mollie in a few weeks
  19. 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).
  20. 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).
  21. 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 playlist track.

  23. 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.
  24. 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 and Sinead leaving newsbeat played a little part in considering moving on. They're both a big part of his show.
  25. 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.
