Don't quote me on this, but the name Mike seems to be popping up in my head! I remember seeing it on here somewhere a while back!

Mike's the name of the current one, Mike Wooller.

It's funny this thread is going on at the moment- I'm not 100% sure, but I think there might be a new female voice over on the way. Have a listen to this, especially the "one" at the end of the ID. It doesn't sound like the normal female VO, so could she be replaced soon? I've heard her doing the "one" on one of the top of the hour song-ramps (those songs with the extended intro they play as the third song each hour) as well.If she is about to be replaced, it could be why they don't play as many sweepers at the moment (there are virtually none with One Big Weekend live tracks at the top of every hour).

In a way I kind of hope there is a new female VO on the way, Never really liked the current one! I don't think she'll live up to Holly though, she suited Radio1 perfect! I like how Dev still uses Holly and David on his opening ramp on weekend breakfast like he did on early breakfast!

I also like that, but it's a shame he didn't keep the funky intro bed he used on Early Breakfast (

), it was really cool. He could've used that ramp at other points in the show instead, but oh well, at least he's keeping some stuff from the old show.

I remember Dev used to have some really good cheesy beds for his show, but now he always uses the boring R1 Generic Beds. I don't know how long ago he stopped using them, definitely whilst he was still on Early Breakfast, but it's a shame, because it gave his show a distinctive sound. I wish DJ's would be more interesting with bed choices, the only ones who use different ones to the generic beds are Grimmy and *shudders* Gemma Cairney. And I never thought I'd be praising Gemma Cairney.

Yeah, I like that too, but it's a shame he got rid of that funky intro bed he used on early breakfast (

), that was great. Adele Roberts used it when she sat in last week. He could still use that ramp at other points in the show, but oh well, at least he's kept some stuff from the old show.

Holly and David are also still on the I'm Here All Week jingles, formerly of Dev, that Gemma Cairney has nicked on early breakfast.

Isn't this 'one' just an edited version of Holly? It sounds similar to her, they are using editied versions of old voiceovers now and again. Louis Mellis is constantly used as a 'one' voice

I did wonder if it was the pre-Holly voiceover.

Saying that, recent imaging hasn't contained much of the current female voiceover. The Weekend Breakfast Show's jingles are all voiced by the male.

Mike works at Radio 1 i believe so it's probably just easier and cheaper to use him. I've listened a few times now and im pretty certain its the old female voice, not a new one. That said, we're over due a change now!

Are these people that do the voices employed by Radio 1?

Or are they just a production company?

Eh? They're all individuals, most of them have an agency, yes, but they aren't all a big production company. For Mike Wooller (the best one IMO) especially, they're not allowed to voice things for other radio stations (exclusivity).
