Go Home with Jordan North

Recommended Posts


He sounds so much fuller of life than Grimmy - the man just needs to go IMO put Scott back on drive for a few years after all he is already back on it Friday now just give him the other 4 to make it consistent and then give Jordan or D&A 1-4

Jordan was brilliant last week on breakfast, deserves a decent slot ASAP. He’s not afraid to bring his features across like North’s knock offs.

I’m not a Grimmy fan so hopefully he will get drive in the next 6 months or so. Management must rate him as they have trusted him in every slot now.

He has actually covered every daytime show now hasn't he which is something older hands like Dev, Greg, Scott etc haven't done 

Grimmy covered for Fearne, Scott on drive and afternoons and Greg - (that was funny Grimmy covering for Scott who was covering for Moyles when Moyles was on holiday during his notice being replaced with Grimmy) 

Has Scott ever covered a show out of daytime times apart from special events?

I don’t think so anyone else’s think there will be a big schedule change next year 

I certainly think the new Pop Controller will want her stamp on things - which have been very stagnant under Ben Cooper until Aled has changed a few things lately 

Ben Cooper the man who made massive change in 2012/13 

 

I think there will be a bannister style operation soon

I'll be the lone Grimmy fan here and say I think he gets a hard time here. He has an incredible skill of making his shows sound natural but still entertaining and that can be very difficult to pull off for many presenters. I'm a bit lukewarm on Jordan North taking over drive. He's a good presenter but having Greg on breakfast and Jordan on drive all feels too... safe, and we know radio 1 don't like to play safe. Grimmy and Greg have opposite personalities to appeal to different people in Radio 1's demographic during their flagship weekday shows (hence why you usually hear people prefer one to the other), and Greg and Jordan seem to appeal to the same type of people.

I personally enjoyed Alice Levine covering on Thursday, but I don't think we'll ever see a scenario where Dev & Alice take over 4-7.

I like Grimmy sometimes - for me he will always be the guy who took breakfast off Moyles - not took but took over - neither made the decision it was Ben Cooper but things were never the same IMO Scott should have had breakfast 

Anyway I digress - YES loved Alice covering last week she was natural and worked well in the slot, the producer of Grimmys show is Jenny who used to be with Alice on weekends so they work well anyway 

I cannot see D&A taking the slot either but I feel sorry for Dev he is always short changed of a regular weekday show I could see Alice replacing Clara one day?

Scott was covering everyone 15/20 years ago, Greg was the Jordan North about 10 years ago before he replaced Edith in the afternoons with Dev after that. 10am was generally covered with a female - usually Sara but occasionally Fearne (when was Jo Whiley or Annie MAC)
