  1. Wish they went for a dance music presenter to cover Charlie Hedges Dance Anthems like one of the Christmas future talent names
  2. I think that when it comes to if they are the next Breakfast duo do think maybe the breakfast show being a four day breakfast show again. So that maybe on a Friday they have dedicated day to do anymore projects outside. But someone like Lauren Laverne still manages to have quite a lot of time of her radio breakfast show.

  4. I mean it always has but feels more in real time and more active rather than the natural long evolution of careers of where presenters go after 1. I think we are in the radio industry has spawned new stations throughout the last ten years (many). Think with the stations approach of Future Sounds, Relax etc may influence moves by the industry for ways to come. Think it’s what Radio 1 is doing great now and are slowly getting around to managing some diversity issues that Radio 1 and the industry have had to work on think Aled is passionate about giving people of different backgrounds and more people on a whole a platform
  5. I think this will still likely end up being good for them even if they dont work with Radio 1 in the end It can raise a presenters profile and get people jobs on stations like Capital, Kiss FM, Hits (+Hits Pride), Virgin Pride, Radio X think it’s helps for both Radio 1 and careers in the commercial sector. Do wonder whether the rise of the profiles of people who might not end up on Radio 1 may inspire stronger creative competition in the commercial sector.
  6. Think so and probably Tiffany Calver’s Rap Show may bring highlights of the performance on the following Saturday after Kendrick Lamar’s performance
  7. I think it could be ok for him as may give him some leave and rest from doing his show without having anyone to sit in for him. But imagine for listeners of the show will be happy with that and the new rock introducing stuff
  8. Thought would post the schedule changes for Glastonbury (Featuring Sian Eleri Introducing Friday Night’s Billie Eilish Performance Radio 1 and Radio 1 Dance Coverage kicks off on Radio 1 Dance on Thursday 23rd June from 7pm-12am, with a live broadcast of Radio 1 Dance’s takeover of the BBC Music Introducing Stage, hosted by Danny Howard and Jaguar. The programme will be simulcast on BBC Radio Somerset DAB and feature sets from some of the biggest names from the world of Introducing Dance. Sian Eleri will be live from Pilton from 10pm-12am on the Friday night on Radio 1, to bring listeners the Pyramid Stage headline set from Billie Eilish. Plus, on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Vick Hope will be giving Radio 1 listeners regular live updates from Worthy Farm between 11am-3pm each day. Following the festival, Radio 1’s Essential Mix will take listeners back to Shangri-La, broadcasting set highlights from this famous late-night area of Glastonbury on Friday 1st July (into Saturday (2nd July), 12am-2am). Radio 1Xtra Tiffany Calver and DJ Target co-host a special show on the Saturday (9pm-11pm), which will be simulcast on Radio 1 and will feature live performances from some of 1Xtra’s favourite artists at Glastonbury. Tiffany is back on the Sunday (9pm-12am) with Kendrick Lamar live on the Pyramid Stage.
  9. Id quite like to see Sarah Storey do the full cover of Dance Anthems and maybe give it the feel that Danny did when he hosted it.
  10. I mean it could be bit like how Alice Levine, Huw Stephens and Clara Amfo done shows from Glastonbury over the years kind of think Jack Saunders would be a good co-host with Katie on that day of Glastonbury
  11. Kind of think maybe on BBC Two as they often re-run competition shows, game shows and light entertainment that have already been played. Do hope that there’s consideration for maybe featuring stuff like newsround, bitesize stuff and educational-entertainment stuff for more school aged children in those slots
  12. With announcements for today wonder what this means for future generations of BBC with… Plans to accelerate digital growth in audio and drive listeners to BBC Sounds, simplifying schedules and cancelling shows that do not deliver; Changes in local radio and regional news to ensure high-quality, distinctive BBC local journalism is available every day when and where audiences want it; Plans to accelerate digital growth in audio and drive listeners to BBC Sounds, simplifying schedules and cancelling shows that do not deliver; wonder what in the longterm it will affect BBC’s Radio output would be affected. Quite possibly some changes to youth news content in the shake-up. Even there’s nothing about newsbeat in it but wonder how this will change BBC’s youth programming etc
  13. I think if there was ever to be a return of the evening entertainment show may do it in something like ‘the 8th’ but would tend to go maybe with one permanent presenter and different co-host for each week with different regular and reoccurring talent going for new and emerging comedic talent and some established names maybe people who may produce content for BBC’s comedy social media channels. Comedians with experiences doing podcasting or more guesting if more digital comedy talent. Maybe a show with purpose of some rest breaks within the year to trial different pilot ideas or seasonal music shows maybe if say round post big weekend if wanted to reflect festival highlights in such a slot or do some dance shows around Ibiza weekend and some summer weeks
  14. I think that it would be wrong to move Rickie, Melvin and Charlie back to evenings as think it would be a demotion and indicative of an unclear future career at the station. I think Radio 1 could do with maybe having a mid morning flagship show with more longterm feature driven content and something that could build a growing audience. Think theres room to play around as that is turning into for few stations one of the most listened time slots and listeners then like a show well branded, packaged with content. As thought before either bring something like future sounds to mid-morning or something like a rebranded lifehacks to that time or the evening that could reflect topical stories, listener conversations (interactive stuff) and looking at the best culture highlight and releases in more of a review style format.
  15. I find Jack Saunders better at future sounds and music shows than Clara Amfo. She has some passion but not strong enough as a music curating presenter breathing new and exciting sounds to platform the next generation of music talent.
  16. Today RAJAR stats have been published https://t.co/RcCDUCZnkB https://t.co/u0GwQl69PO Radio 1, Kiss and Capital are at all time lows. While talk radio stations at all time highs. Only real growth in youth market is Capital Dance which think for ravers and those who like to work out only DAB station that offer Dance Radio outside of Radio 1s dance programming
  17. This about TV or Radio could see chances of Clara Amfo and Jack Saunders being involved
  18. Nothing to much to it if referring to myself since she’s using her surname in full for her most recent projects feels more formality rather than the shortened DJ name.
  19. By the looks of it certain bits of the schedule yet to update on the website schedule. Assume maybe you’d have them joined by presenters from across the schedule. Used to enjoy it when presenting teams were a rarity where Annie Macmanus, Scott Mills and Cel Spellman could present together and Huw Stephens, Charlie Sloth and Danny Howard could be doing it together very dated examples
  20. Its not a day that would expect for a mid may non-bank holiday Friday of cover. No longer you’d have someone like Jordan or Dev that would end up covering for a seven day week and the odd multiple shows a day. Its been a while since we had days where the evening presenters covering daytime shows like Annie Macmanus when she’d covered for Fearne C/ Clara A on a small few occasions. Huw Stephens various shows covered likewise Phil Taggart
  21. Press release from ITV states that it isn’t a back up and would be broadcasted think early 2023 in addition to its usual series as one off additional series as a best of contenders from years gone by
  22. The series is less of a back-up but something that will be a best of the contestants from the years think
  23. Someone speculated that could be doing television recordings could be presenting or competing in something that they can’t press out just yet
  24. Including Huw Stephens. Considering that theres future soul, chillest show, future dance it wouldve been good if they announced that there would be 1 soul spotlight artist on Future Sounds stage giving Victoria Jane’s show bit of content a few piano session and maybe run a Piano Session Introducing event on BBC Introducing stages across festivals like R&L, R1BW, GLAST as cross BBC INTRO + RELAX Promo. Think it will be good to hear presenter like Jack Saunders presenting from Big Weekend as for an event like that he’s got the needed energy and enthusiasm that will carry it with doing interviews and such. Maybe will hope to hear him or even see him doing Glasto coverage later this summer with Clara Amfo. Think presenter like Greg James will be excited to get back out there as he works on the listener interaction and can tell likes being involved in events where he can chat with listeners. Jordan at the station for 6 years. Will be the first time with such household recognition as will be more name and face recognised from TV too
  25. Think with Newsbeat it offers representation that isnt always reflected across over BBC News outlets its focus on teenage mental health, eating disorders, sexual assault, online abuse, climate change. It I often isn’t given the power to do more of the good stuff it does. Its one of the best news youth brands and good when comes to doing Q&A’s and breaking information to easily digestible and readable chunk. I do think it’s approach to news and representing youth issues of public importance playing new music from new talent is definately strong bit of the stations USP
