1st-2nd December

1pm-4pm: No Matt Edmondson so Jamie Lang joins Mollie King

3rd December

1pm-4pm: Matt Edmondson is solo. 

I'm not a fan of Jamie Lang as it all seems a bit inwards facing and posh. Surely a Jamie Lang and Mollie combination could be a posh overload. I'd much prefer to hear James Cusack with Mollie again, it was the best of both worlds with him being northern and very down to earth, they complemented each other well and sounded great together.

Argh! Not anthems!!! I was hoping this year it would be different. I literally cannot stand basically a whole week of anthems, it's lazy and boring. I guess I won't be listening for a 5th year straight, unfortunately.

I feel the same, but it's probably more convenient for them in terms of production staff as mixing could be done before Christmas and they can put less experienced staff and presenters on air. Plus people (except geeks) seem to like Anthems and the music scene is weird few weeks following Christmas as there not much new releases and Christmas songs are not suitable anymore.

Having said that, I remember that 'special' shows between Christmas and New Year's being really interesting and fun listen before they went all Anthems. It felt like there were almost no rules in the format during Scott's, Dev's, and Matt's shows. I'd love to have at least normal Breakfast show again during that period.

Yes, remember Scott and Chris having celebrity guests in the crimbo limbo think even Eddie Redmain and few of listeners favourites features and lively entertaining chat that filled the chat which was great radio. Nick Grimshaw even did some New Year’s Eve stuff and Nixtape highlighters in the crimbo limbo. Nixtapes trump Anthems any day. 

I understand your point about new music but considering radio 1’s audience is gen z and gen a having days where have couple when its back to back music from twenty and fifteen years ago didn’t feel the best fit. As the station should still play few up to date recent tracks in with the throwbacks not to lose their younger audience.

Charlie Tee is seeing in the New Year this time, 10pm-1am on 31st Dec.

Would like it if they allowed her the ability to pick her own selection of tracks to put in the mix that suit the spirit of her drum and bass show and the usual Friday and Saturday night party vibes that is vastly lacking from the stations New Years programming.

Jack seems to be off on the chart lots I wonder if a newbie will get the show 

I mean it’s only been a couple of frequent days recently but it much feels that it has been the indie show that has been more vacated especially when Jack was covering Clara this summer on future sounds.

One host still to be confirmed for Party Anthems, specifically at 7pm.

Workout Anthems is on 31st Dec, whilst Radio 1 Happy is on 1st Jan. 

The Chillest Show airs on 1st Jan 6am, I suspect this will be pre recorded. 

The other three days of that work look normal aside from the fact there is no Dean and Vicky, so RMC go from 10.30-3.00 and Vick and Jordan go from 3.00-5.45.

It's Matt & Jamie on the 1st & 2nd, not Mollie & Jamie.  Seems to fit that Mollie is off, as she's not on the show on the 3rd or on Future Pop this evening.

I wonder how long it will be before we find out who is on over Christmas. I noticed that it's missing and that's a prime slot for people heading out or to parties. If Charlie Tee is on after, I'd expect it to be a good presenter to take the lead on the 7pm show

Jerry, Charlie Hedges or James Cuisack are most obvious possibilities...

I never do much on NYE but sit in and drink wine with the dog and I must say Jordan made that slot special.

    • I do think if you distracted by talking you wouldn’t put a podcast on in the car. To me unless you used to driving so often that you don’t get distracted and drive for long distances it feels suited to podcasts. I find it odd including Ryan Seacrest or Howard Stern as I don’t know who listens to them in the U.K. Can imagine Chris Evans distracting and annoying on radio in general same for Chris Moyles. I can imagine Scott as not too distracting maybe even in his radio 1 days although if I was a driver I could find Innuendo Bingo or Funny Business distracting based on the humour of the features but Scott’s got a very soft gentle tone of voice doesn’t come across as loud or in your face. I think when you are on in the working day where people maybe listening as said in car, in the office or tradespeople on a job listening to the radio theres a certain style needed
    • Yes, good on you doing your own music blog website. I get that point with the 100% all new music can be alienating but think thats more if the station were to do more totally new bands and artists the thing that new music shows that preceded Jack have always have reflected big artists national and international who have been around for a while be that few years to a decade or two whether playing new stuff from artists to Dua Lipa, Coldplay or Nia Archives. I find its bizarre how music curation has changed a lot in the last decade as what I like of what radio can do well is that ability to hear an audible description of a new artist and information about their music with sense of opinion and thought from the presenter and an interview with the switch to sound features and spotify playlists. It’s not that same magazine effect that Steve Lamarq and Jo Whiley could be an audible magazine show like the NME to Zane Lowe’s radio 1 show complimenting Gonzo which Saunders has revived for MTV
    • I would argue against that, I once drove my car into a post listening to Scott Mills.  But it was back in the day, he was doing Stupid Street with Chappers at the time!
    • My perspective when saying ‘alienating’  was from a listener , a new listener to a new music show where every track is unfamiliar can be alienating. When I used to run a music blog website and took my eye off the ball it could be hard to get finger back on pulse. I remember first listening to after 7pm on radio 1 and it feeling like a different world of music completely as a teenager- I think this format knocks them barriers down and makes a smooth transition from daytime playlists to new music show  taking listener deeper down as show progresses yeah you are bang on with setting the agenda - what a great influential role to have  
    • Fair play to Jordan north who’s got himself to 5th least distracting, but Greg has managed 8th MOST distracting, and Rickie who is 12th most distracting.
    • 29th April has Alyx Holcombe in for Daniel P Carter on the Rock show and Nels Hylton in for Alyx on Introducing Rock. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Monday 6th May (May Day Bank Holiday) schedules are completely different. Looks like it's a Countdown to Radio 1's Big Weekend day. Changed timeslots in the morning as well with no presenters listed. 6am-10am (Breakfast slot changed from 7am-10:30am) 10am-1pm (Mid morning/early afternoon slot changed from 10:30-12:45pm) 1pm-3:30pm (As normal) 3:30pm-6pm (No Newsbeat) 6pm-8pm (Replaces New Music Show) Rest of evening schedule as normal.
    • What does that even mean? 😂
    • Not sure what it really means, but Scott Mills is one of the least distracting DJs according to new research. https://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/cars/article-13283609/Most-distracting-radio-podcast-hosts-driving-revealed-Mark-Wright-Chris-Evans-list.html It says Radio 1 though, which is not only inaccurate, but also I can only imagine it applying to his Radio 2 show. How many sounds effects did he used to play on Radio 1, ha.
    • I would rather do the new music show than the breakfast show early starts, being cheery and entertaining isn’t my vibe and being hip and on trend. With new music it’s a different kettle of fish that could get my teeth into and enjoy researching and planning of the show and coming up with ideas and making my mark in away that I don’t think I have the ideas for a breakfast. I don’t see how it could be alienating but I enjoy the niche and speciality of expertise that new music shows gives it’s good spot of giving you the headlines and setting the agenda of mainstream music.
    • Absolutely, Jack is such an incredible broadcaster already, incredibly entertaining with such brilliant music knowledge and his excitement is contagious, I've never really listened to New Music Shows like Future Sounds but I'm instantly invested in new music due to his show, as I'm sure many others are too.  yes the effects are a little strange but after listening back they're strangely charming when you get used to them. 
    • Jack has smashed it He was born for this show, he said he’d been dreaming of it and you could tell. Such passion and energy as always with Jack but in a show that can grab people’s attention and drag them down the rabbit hole of new music if you had a keen interest in discovering new music but haven’t in a while, new music shows can be alienating with no familiarity until you ‘get into it’ - the new show has ensured you can ease into to get back into sync . i love the Zane influences - he will be the forefront of where every emerging and returning artist wants to be with this show . Very excited for this chapter
    • Oh I though they were nbh studios   
    • Yes, I feel that unless it’s for a special sessions with a large ensemble band that for live sessions going out live on the radio. Never saw why they haven’t used the live lounge studio and feel that room could be used more.  
    • Interesting now Zane has for apple interviewed anything from an artists that have charted and doing less interviews with new and emerging talents chatting to Shakira, Usher, Kelly Clarkson and Shania Twain. Yes, that is a positive thing about Jack Saunders. Although I don’t mind it from time to time for a presenter to be honest and spill an unsavoury opinion about music on the station like Annie did with Fall Out Boy.
