Aled New Radio 1 Station Controller

Recommended Posts

So proud and excited for Aled. What do we all reckon will happen with the station going forward as it was hinted there will be exciting changes.

There will be a heavier social media and digital presence that's almost a guarantee. 

The daytime music playlist may be looked into a bit more he's such a big pop music fan so can see it becoming more 80% pop chart hits and 20% Alternative genres. 

The schedule will remain un touched for a while as he would've had a real say over changes in the past year or so. However i would expect anytime now an announcement that Jordan North has got Friday-Sundays 10-1 when Lockdown schedule is over. 

What's everyone's thoughts?

I hope they add some more digital features, like for example they could add a webcam feed from the studios to the Sounds website which would be really cool.

I agree about the Schedule, I hope Jordan gets some more air-time. Regarding the music I'm not really fussed about changing to Pop as it's my preferred style too!

Congrats to Aled!

I don’t think it’ll be just pop as commercial stations will whinge - schedule wise move Grimmy to 7pm either Monday-Thur or Friday.
 

Poss put Scott back on drive or give him breakfast and let Greg have a bit of a sabbatical in the next year or so to enable Scott to leave R1 on a high. Make Friday a more normal weekday schedule at least until 1 or 4pm. Have the chart as a hour show with occasional extended specials e.g. Christmas no1, chart of the year.

I'd like Friday back as a normal schedule definitely. Don't know if Greg taking time off is going to happen. I hope not lol. Scott I think may well go back on Drive and we all saw last week how much Grimmy liked doing the Evening shows!

Really can’t see Greg taking any time off, he’s stated loads it’s his dream job and helps his mental health. I’m sure Jordan will get a permanent slot in the next 6-12 months. Not sure where

I could see Scott going back to drive, but I am not so sure if that would be a backward step?

Let's be real. Scott's phasing out of Radio 1. He's no longer breakfast cover, He's hosting more Radio 2 shows now. Next time someone leaves Radio 2 Scott will likely move into that slot.
