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.

    • Jordan talks of his move on the Weekend Release edition of Help I Sexted My Boss but doesn't give much away that we don't know. You soon realise the only bit of all of this that is shock or sudden is Radio 1 removing him without warning.   It might have been nice for them to tell him even Thursday that that show was his last.
    • It's not the craziest idea, ha. 
    • We’ll be getting a Sian Eleri and Jack Saunders pairing at breakfast next! 😂
    • Make that the forum motto 😂 Whatever you expect to happen there's usually a curveball. Nobody predicted Vick and Jordan pairing in the first place! 
    • Interesting comment on Chris post from Jordan. "Mate, I can’t wait to get started. Thank you for all your help and support over the past few months, wouldn’t be here without you! ❤"
    • Vick and Katie could still be a thing, but Katie is good by herself. There's still a lot of good talent on R1 remember. James could have easily done drive with Vick, but replacing a Jordan v2 might be too jarring. I'm on nights here and listening back to Nat and James' show after he posted a clip on his instagram. He's naturally funny without trying and when the caller doesn't pick up and ruins the game, it isn't cringe, he actually styles it out with the music backing and says, right we'll just block you then. Reminds me of how scott would deal with it. Disappointed that Mollie and James isn't a thing again and its just Mollie solo as they were really good together, but then he's on the show himself the next day
    • Very good point.   What is Katie's future now?  Plus she is bound to be hurting?  She doesn't need Radio 1.  More TV work? Higher profile role at another radio station....   I have been a Radio 1 listener for 30 years and can never remember the situation that has arisen with Jordan..closest was Chris Evans' disappearing act in 1997 but that was quite different.
    • She’s one of the biggest assets to the station that could have a more prolonged career at the station than a fair few of those who currently on daytime. One with Jordan’s departure could risk losing.
    • True that. If he does get to take on a show permanently it would likely be when the next major presenter(s) leave daytime or even likely to leave weekends.
    • After last Friday the one thing we have learnt is that all our speculation means nothing 😛 
    • James cussack must be next in line for a show but I don’t know where he would go now 
    • Whatever management feel, I imagine the past week has been very tough on many of the presenters as they are actual friends with Jordan and whilst they will have known what was going on the suddenness of his exit will have hit them.  Katie probably knew nothing of Jordan's axing until she was listening to Newsbeat immediately before her show last Friday.  I genuinely felt sorry for her as you could tell she was shocked and upset. It's such a shame they didn't get to do breakfast together.  Their breakfast shows last summer were some of the best radio I have heard in years.
    • Now changed to say that James Cusack is solo on the 3rd March. I noticed that on the 11th March that there is a generic Radio 1 Breakfast placeholder but the rest of the week is normal. May suggest that someone is covering Breakfast that day.
    • Nice reference from Greg to Jordan when talking about Sparks FM to Chris Howard. At least they're not treating him like he's dead to Radio 1 😂
