I think that's a glimmer into what could happen in 2024 with some names. I have to be honest and say I found Joel Mitchell quite flat on early breakfast and a bit old hat local radio with content like name things that don't have a name like your hover. It's like come on. Good to see some other voices getting a turn again that haven't been on recently, I think Conor did one of the christmas shows and Shanequa was good.

My predicition, I think next year is the year they promote James after this year and the prime slot on NYE. He's covered a range of shows and could slot in to the R1 family tomorrow. He actually does always remind me of a northern scott and jordan hybrid, a very entertaining listen not to mention one up on global if they took him away.

They would then need some of the above names to cover more.

I agree that James is a good listen, but there's no guarantee he'd be offered a permanent slot should one become available. There has been so much change in pretty much every slot in the past few years that I'd like to see a few years of stability.. rather than a constant merry go round of changes. Any change next year I think will be triggered by either Matt or Greg deciding to leave the station. 

It's a shame those pre mixed 'Anthems' blocks are still in place over Christmas. I used to like it when they had themed days where they still had plenty of chance to talk between the songs.

So it's basically using those tried and tested on Friday early mornings for Christmas.

 

Not a bad idea to be fair.

 

Those of us who have been around longer will remember when the midnight to 0400 and early breakfast presenters (weekdays and weekends) covered periods like this.  Realistically - these days they'd have Arielle, Sam and Danni, Matt and Mollie (who are too big really to work Christmas), Katie (ditto) and Nat to cover.

I agree with you there, he is a good listen and yes there's never any guarantee that someone will get a permanent slot, but predicting based on what seems to be lacking from the station currently, how good the shows have been and where they continue to put James, that is my guess. Stability is always good but I think 2024 is potentially one of the larger shake ups and yes I agree Matt or Greg deciding to leave would be the trigger.

Presenter like Cusack would be potential recruit for next year I kind of feel that if Matt Edmonson were to leave that his successor would have to do it solo as think that BBC national networks and in particular radio 1 maybe at the peril of having to reduce the number of presenters and presenting duos could be be broken up I wonder if Vicky and Dean could be broken up and RMC leave.

I think inevitable soon that with the increase with the liscense fee not matching the state of inflation inevitably going to cause further budget cuts in the same period that operations of certain programmes are being outsourced across the country away from London. We know that there is cuts within BBC News and NewsNight I can assume that Radio 1 will have to make further cuts soon and the station may have to operate on a smaller budget.

Do we think this is future presenters as in newbies, or more to do with tracks from presenters of Future artists and Future sounds?

Great addition to the Christmas billing something I might have to catch up later on sounds after it goes out sounds like a fun show.

Jack Saunders invites presenters from Radio 1’s past, present and future to bring musical gifts for Christmas day.
 

That sounds like “presenters” my theory is that the presenters who came on the chart show anniversary stuck around

    • 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.
