Schedule Changes

Recommended Posts

Getting known names on weekend presenting roles is nothing new although I think this monthly double act with Matt is a good way of radio 1 seeing what known names also make good radio presenters and how the audience warm to them through these taster shows. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see one of the names lined up to present with Matt his year,  getting their own show in the future.

Maya's link into the news just now:

HAIM - The Wire is interrupted before the end with the news jingle. No comment from Maya. No back announcement of the song. A few seconds of the news jingle. She eventually speaks and says "it's time for Newsbeat with Hannah Morris". 

So not only did she screw up the backtiming, crash the song with the news jingle and forget to announce the name of the song or trail ahead - she managed to get the name of the newsreader - the same newsreader she's already introduced twice today without incident - wrong. 

I've gotta stop posting about Maya Jama. It's a problem. Promise this is the last one. It was just quite funny.

It's Molly King's last show with Matt today (shame), he just said that it's Example from next week. Wasn't it supposed to be Scarlett Moffatt next? I think she's doing a show on Heart over the bank holiday weekend, so maybe that's got something to do with it?

Delighted to see Jordan covering Greg. Long over-due. Him and Alice are just a million times more entertaining than Dev.

Have to agree Jordan has brought some fresh energy into covering Greg's show and is more in tune with the usual style of programme.

Jordan absolutely smashed it - got better and better each day, sounded right at home and especially loved Saving Grace on Thursday. Hope they let him do it again sometime.

Also Adele's on again at 1pm today, her second show of the day.

I think Jordan may well take breakfast once grimmmy leaves 

This would be good but surely he's too much of an unknown and it's probably too early in his career. Although I'm assuming Grimmy goes some time soon. He could still be around for Radio 1's 100th birthday.

Phil Taggart also sounding good in for Annie Mac tonight :)

I'm glad he seems to be out of the cold at last.

Right, this is very random but I was thinking earlier that since the rest of the weekend schedule has had a refresh, I think the Sunday evening one really needs one so I think it really should be like this: 

4:00 Life Hacks with Katie and Dr Radha (continues until 7, get rid of the awful Most Played Chart and also get rid of Cel)

7:00 Radio 1’s best of the week with Scott Mills (would also be like a request show type thing, could then get rid of the Greatest Hits show as they would be on this show)

9:00 Rock Show (Doesn’t need to be in such a prominent slot and doesn’t need to be as long)

11:00 Phil Taggart (Like his show currently is, just slightly shorter)

This would also line up with the rest of the week. Any suggestions welcome?

What I’d do is give Jordan North both Greatest Hits shows, and move Maya Jama to a new Sunday 7-9 slot. Totally agree with you about making the rock show 9-11 and Phil Taggart 11-1.

 

It’s got to the point where it seems as though Phil doesn’t really know what to do with the last hour of the show. When he first took the show over the last hour was mellow music like the first two hours. But then around the time he lost his old Thursday 9-10 show the last hour of the Sunday one just strangely derailed into rock and alternative which really didn’t seem appropriate under the title “The chillest show on planet Earth”. I can only assume that move was to compensate for his lost airtime on a Thursday where he’d normally have played that music, because when the Specialist Chart came into existence last year the final hour returned to something of a more mellow theme, albeit not quite as much as 10-midnight.

I hope so, Dev is boring. Jordan did the end of year chart as well so at least he has done it before!

Whats suprising about this is that Scott is not filling in now hes the new host - and Jordan doing his show or earlies to allow Adele to do 1-4

Now that the changes have been announced, perhaps they want to keep Scott off the chart until he officially takes over. He'll probably have some new imaging to play with too, which will be a shame as I like the current chart imaging.
