Quite sad that out of that really strong weekend lineup of 

6am: Dev

10am: Matt Edmondson 

1pm: Alice Levine

None of them will have reached a weekday slot, both Dev and Alice are gone, and it’s looking less and less likely as time goes on that Matt and Mollie will go to weekdays, after an effective demotion taking them off Friday breakfast.  Matt was 100% Scott’s designated successor for a few years but Scott outlasted Edmondson’s viability for that position in the eyes of R1 management!😂

Don’t think he was ever to take over from Scott as very rare the over presenter takes over the show but felt times Matt and Chris Stark would present was good do miss Matt Edmonson having a podcast of his show

I felt bad for Jam. I think he was destine for R1 Friday nights as he covered Annie a few times, but got bored of waiting I guess. I think at Capital Dance, he's just happy about being the main man an

I'm going to stick my oar in here (again!) and say that I think Jack Saunders at 8pm is a great move. Entertainment at mid-morning (RM&C) should be a higher priority, and I've always found Saunder

It’s going to be sad to Annie leave after so many years at Radio 1, but it definitely feels like she wasn’t pushed and that it was her own decision. Clara getting Future Sounds is a promotion for

I feel on Friday not doing breakfast slight demotion but assume that there could be more listeners on afternoons than breakfast at the weekends they sounding good on that slot a good duo I did feel that they could’ve countinued in that slot for continuity as have been switched around abit 

Agreed, a slight demotion, but it balances out, higher profile slot on Sat and Sun, much lower profile on Fri.

One thing I think they could’ve done in a switch around got Mollie King to present a flagship pop and mainstream show in more primetime slot as a half an hour of new pop playlist could’ve been done better. As think it could do some new music Friday stuff better as it was better when the music releases went to Friday as they seemed to then better on the Friday reflect discuss and play the new music of the day

Maybe just me, but I never thought that lineup was so strong. I am a fan of Matt, but neither Dev nor Alice alone really impressed me. The current weekend lineup is way better - albeit Adele is on the way out rather than the way up, and M&M are probably destined to remain weekend / cover presenters.

Honestly agreed with you did feel bit disappointed sometime when he presented sitting in on Greg James drive. Alice was ok neither impressive not terrible sometimes she did over talk ‘avant--garden was a phrase she often said was annoying. Bit petty to mention they weren’t as bad together kind of made eachother sound better she was good from what remember in the early Phil and Alice. Did also find it was annoying when people came on to play a pretty average features he would say ‘play nicely’.

Wow, this reshuffle has the best and the worst changes at the same time. Impressive.

I'm okay with Annie leaving the weekday show, I've always thought that someone else should have followed Zane to begin with, someone with the same energy, like Phil Taggart (he even said in his last show how odd was to him at first to get the chill show) or now Jack Saunders (that guy is so enthusiastic about music, he could even sell Macarena to me if he had to i swear). She did a great job though, but it could have been better.

Friday evenings on the other hand... without Annie, Thursdays are going to be followed by Saturdays i'm afraid. An iconic show gone, end of an era. (But who's gonna do the "Danny Mac" pun on air first? My money is on Scott.)

But the worst part is her departure makes a new Grimmy & Annie show impossible. Whenever these two end up together on air is pure radio gold. Could've been the greatest sendoff for both of them, doing a show together again for a few years, maybe on weekend evenings, for example.

RMC's monotone mumbling rap playlist is off 8PM and Jack is in: best change ever! Not sure about Clara, but we'll see, I really like her voice, and if the music is fine, I'm in. Daily Sian, thumbs up, then it gets problematic... really problematic. So, a single hour of Sian (odd), René/Annie/Benji cut back to an hour (WHAT?! why?!), and then 5 hours of N-O-T-H-I-N-G (but recyclable filler and podcasts I assume)?! This must be a joke! Or a typo. Actual new music content: 1 hour, filler crap: 5? This is mad. I hope i got that wrong...
