Just a thought, but I reckon Charlie may well outlast Rickie and Melvin at Radio 1. Thoughts?

I thought they sounded good together today as a pairing, with Charlie going solo.

Oh I agree completely. Rickie and Melvin seem to be doing lots together without Charlie. Like they not long ago competed on some Reality TV program together. 
I do think perhaps once the world starts to move back to normal, they’ll quietly take Charlie off of evenings and keep her solely on dance anthems. They do sound better apart in my opinion. Charlie sounds more comfortable doing her dance anthems, whilst the lads seem happier on the night shift.

I would of thought if Charlie was going to be taken off she would of already been so they didn't need to have a remote connection.

I suppose do have a long career before Charlie joined them think it will be the case possibly when clubs and festivals open again there maybe more times when it’s just Rickie or Melvin and when may take the odd dance anthems. Think it’s a wonder when Rickie and Melvin are up for a better slot since been over from Kiss for a few years and are quite renowned names could possibly take over drive after Grimmy leaves or replace Matt and Mollie if they get a daytime slot. Think it will be thing could capital dance ever offere  her a more prime time slot but also want to know is if they prepping Sarah Storey for joining the R1 Dance probably if Charlie doesn’t go capital Dance she could have a more specialist dance show. Though I think it would be good if they chucked them to do the three of them do bank holiday breakfast and the odd breakfast cover

Yeah they are good, makes you wonder why they left Kiss for evenings on R1? and before COVID were they destined for bigger things at R1?

Think it could been a matter of more flexible contracts and timing or maybe better money offer maybe the nighttime slot would allow them to easily take up more tv or DJ work without clashing with Kiss FM schedules did find it an odd jump at the time know of course radio 1 is bigger but not to be anywhere in peak daytime was an odd shift and has the flagship show over there at kiss but Ben Cooper at Bauer is atleast making kiss sound bir more complitive with kiss nights and DJs like A track doing stuff

I can’t see Charlie going back to a commercial station. She’s only recently taken over Dance Anthems anyway.

I believe shortly after RMC left Kiss, the big boss there also departed. I believe the 2 are connected. They’d had a good run on Breakfast and probably expected some changes under new management.

Rickie & Melvin have always done more TV together/solo than Charlie anyway. I can’t really see them splitting them up on a permanent R1 basis anytime soon.

Yes can’t see them splitting but don’t have a clue what’s it is going to be like for the foceable think see dance anthems with Charlie running for atleast 3-4 years. Don’t see a major split of them happening for a while see Rickie and Melvin will be working together on radio and in other realms likely for decades to come where ever that work is be as see them having bit longer in rsdio 1 but maybe at most one or two years left in slot but think bout the move all what is offfered and what suits them. But think the evening time slot will last a short longer but think as one of weekend or daytime slots change they may have a more daytime slot
