September marked a big change for radio 1, with numerous new shows launching across the station.
My thoughts on the changes were very mixed. I really like the new drive show, Vick and Jordan are the new big stars of the station and they are definitely future breakfast presenters. Rickie, Melvin and Charlie have been a bit more mixed for me. They seem too muted and constrained by the format of their show, I really want them back on evenings where they can get a bit louder and exciting, where they’re at their best for me. Future Artists at 8pm just doesn’t do anything for me at all, it’s too niche and the majority of the music is indie which gets very boring very quickly. Clara on Future Sounds is fine, she’s picking good music and she’s better there than in daytime. On weekends, I know Dean has been a bit marmite but I’m loving his show, great features and chat, very similar to Jordan.
But what do you think?
