  1. I hate to admit it but I think there is an age thing here too. I hadn't given up on Radio 1 as I found Radio 2 too old but I am finding Capital's music is sort of working for me. It helps that outside Breakfast it is pure wallpaper.
  2. The music on Capital is a bit repetitive but I am not sure it is so much worse than Radio 1 these days. Radio 1 probably has the odd more surprising track and a bigger variety of genres. As I have bored people before - I am a big fan of the show. Yes it is pretty structured and yes Jordan is a much more professional and less random version of himself but it's a great listen, fun, warm and feels very familiar in the morning to have everything in the same place each day. I often leave Capital on much of the day partly due to having been really busy at work and it is just wallpaper and partly as the Radio 1 line-up isn't must-listen for me these days.
  3. He stopped himself from saying it in full. Did he say BBC or BBC Radio
  4. Chris' wife made an appearance on Capital Breakfast this morning. Did she ever appear on Radio 1? Jordan called her to ask if Chris could have a sleepover at his tonight before they fly to Scott's wedding after the show tomorrow.
  5. Jordan mentioned that him and Chris are going to Scott's wedding in Barcelona in a few weeks.
  6. It's amazing how stable that slot has been over the past 20 years - 3 presenters only. By comparison, the previous 20 years seen 8 or 10 presenters depending how you measure it. (Whether you treat Kevin and Zoe as separate to Zoe and whether you count Mark Goodier's 4 months on Breakfast as more than just cover).

    Actually the worst tends to be those who comment on Radio Today news stories. People who haven’t listened to younger oriented radio stations in years who say things like “who?” about any job going to any presenter aged younger than 50.

    some people are absurdly critical. On a show like that the key thing is good energy and Connor has that. Though Mistajam is the master of that

    Connor Coates is a great dance presenter and he left Cool FM a while ago so you imagine him and Arielle will be the live shows on Radio 1 Dance
  10. Sad I missed it @xxladybarefootxx - i was too late for tickets for the live show then I had to skip last night as the nearest cinema was an hour on the train and I had a business trip starting today. I imagine it will be released on Amazon Prime or Netflix. Surreal how big it has become.
  11. I get not putting resources into X which these days is a strange mix of angry political debate and adult content only. But you'd think Facebook was still the most popular social channel amongst Radio 2 audiences.
  12. I think at least part of the problem is that a lot of Danny's act is based around Drag humour which (a) isn't for everybody (b) has to be so tamed down for daytime radio, it just becomes silly and (c) it is humour generally consumed on a night out with lots of alcohol taken!
  13. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community my position is exactly yours on female representation. Yes I want representation but only on merit. Even if Radio 1 would like more representation from this sector, there are stacks of better options than Danny Beard.
  14. I think this year has taught us we know nothing 🙂 Nobody would ever have credibly predicted Jordan leaving and all the changes that followed. I have another interest outside radio and it is exactly the same - the stuff you never expect to happen is exactly what does.
  15. I'm guessing there is also a stack of weekend events like Glastonbury
