The UM Dream Schedule for R1


Recommended Posts


I have created this google form we can do, giving our dream R1 schedule.

Please complete before 12:00 GMT (midday) on Sunday 19 April. I will then use results to determine our ideal schedule.

Very interesting indeed. A few votes for Dev on earlies and TCMS at breakfast. My favourite R1 Schedule. I have two ideas for a schedule one I submitted to the GDrive poll. The other I'll post here as it's more fantasy than reality (Mix of 00s-early 10s presenters) More so if a spinoff station launched..

4-6 Dev

6-10 Chris Moyles

10-1 Sara Cox

1-4 Matt Edmondson 

4-7 Scott Mills

7-9 Zane Lowe

9-11 Jo Whiley 

11-1 Huw Stephens


4-6 Chart with Reggie

6-7 Anthems with Reggie

7-9 Annie Mac

9-11 Pete Tong

11-1 Judge Jules


9-11 Chappers and Dave

4-7 Nick Grimshaw and Annie Mac

7-8 Anthems with Colin Murray(Pre Record)

8-11 Westwood Rap Show

11-1 As 1Xtra


9-11 Edith Bowman

4-7 The Surgery with Aled

7-8 Anthems with.. (Guest Host- Pre Record)

8-9 Radio 1 Documentary 


6-9 Vernon Kay

1-4 Greg James

The UM Dream Schedule for R1

The Results

There are four parts to this results post:

  1. My interpretation of the dream schedule based on the results
  2. Pie charts for the votes for each show
  3. Chart of the top 25 presenters based on total number of votes across the poll
  4. Other fun facts (including popularity of double acts)

My interpretation of the dream schedule based on the results

Where a presenter is the most popular choice for multiple slots, they are chosen for the one where there is no alternative who is both popular and available (i.e. the presenter in second place has been chosen elsewhere).

Despite the fact that Matt and Mollie were voted most popular for weekend breakfast, as Matt was more popular on his own overall (throughout the entire poll), I have decided to put Matt solo down for that slot.

Weekdays (Mon to Fri)

04:00 to 06:30 – Adele Roberts

06:30 to 10:00 – Greg James

10:00 to 13:00 – Arielle Free

13:00 to 16:00 – Scott and Chris

16:00 to 19:00 – Jordan North

                            Scott Mills for Chart on Fridays

19:00 to 21:00 – Annie Mac

21:00 to 23:00 – Rickie, Melvin and Charlie

23:00 to 01:00 – Jack Saunders

Weekend (Sat to Sun)

04:00 to 06:30 – Gregor Davidson

06:30 to 10:00 – Matt Edmondson

10:00 to 13:00 – Nick Grimshaw

13:00 to 16:00 – Dev and Alice

16:00 to 19:00 – MistaJam for Dance Anthems on Saturdays

                            Cel and Katie for Life Hacks on Sundays

Thank you for organising this! The results are very interesting but mostly what I expected really. Although I didn’t realise this forum had so much love for Arielle but I don’t think that’s a bad thing. I would be very happy for a future radio 1 schedule to look like that.
