Going Home with Vick and Jordan on Radio 1

 I agree, it makes it easier to promote and stand out from other Radio 1 output

In the trails for drivetime it's got 'gong home with Vick and Jordan' as the tag - makes sense too they have a more unique name for what I presume will be a well-formatted show...

Reminds me of when Chris Moyles kicked up a fuss because his Channel 5 show wasn't going to be named after him. He said it made it easier for him to be cut out of the equation, which eventually they did. Although I note after his Radio 1 stint, breakfast became 'Radio 1 Breakfast' and Grimmy was there for yonks, so means nothing...

Looking down the BBC Sounds schedule for Monday now, it literally leaves Ricky, Melvin & Charlie and Scott Mills as the only shows without Radio 1 in their title. 

(Newsbeat doesn’t either, but that’s a 1X & Asian simulcast)

Only others can think of Benji, Dean, Matt & Mollie, Tong, Howard. It’s interesting compared to Radio 2 and 6 Music even 1 Xtra there’s less of this do think if it’s some of the specialist shows would be better for less on Radio 1s or on Radio 1. I do feel that when it comes to some of the stuff on the schedule like Future Soul, Rock Show, Indie Show … should be promoted snd marketed to the listeners across Radio 1 Xtra/2/3/6 and in sounds in general

@jono

Was Breakfast called "The Radio one breakfast show with Sara Cox" before "The Chris Moyles Show"? 

 

also in Grimmys time it was "The Radio 1 Breakfast Show with" where as now it is "Radio 1 Breakfast" - although Greg always calls it "the Breakfast show" I wonder why?

The title is just... Dreadful! Call it "Going Home with Vick & Jordan" if they must, but the "..on Radio 1" is clunky and unnecessary. 13 syllables! 

I understand not calling it "Drivetime", as it sounds a bit 'local commercial radio' and not everyone drives, but not everyone's going home at that time either. I don't know what the answer is, but GHwVaJoR1 isn't it!

The new photos also look kinda cheap. As with some of the names, they're also inconsistent between different shows. It's just these little points that they surely has loads of meetings to discuss but still ended up being a bit naff and lacking polish.

It really bugs me that Greg does this - I know there are much better things to use my energy on, but I can't help it! He went through BBC Sounds earlier and still referred to it as "The Radio 1 Breakfast Show" even though the correct name "Radio 1 Breakfast with..." would've been right there! Either use its proper name or change it, I think "Radio 1 Breakfast" is better anyway.

Whilst I'm having a pointless rant, the shows that end "with [presenter]" sound so daft when the named presenter is off. Just put the name of the stand-in or leave it off. "Radio 1's Dance Party with Annie Mac with Danny Howard" is not good. (Not that that'll be back again ?).

Think with Radio Dance cover could be Friday Night Radio 1 Dance something generic for cover. Think if it’s Daytime with presenter who hasn’t got a show Lunchtime on Radio 1, Early Mornings on Radio 1 feel with most stations having reformed as X station’s breakfast show with X presenter works as it’s the headline show when cover simply X station breakfast. Think outside of that X station x show with isn’t always needed

Get that I felt it’s inaccurate with descriptions Jack Saunders, Katie Thistleton in for Jordan North pass few weeks when pretty much been filling the void think then descriptions should’ve been Katie presents Radio 1 weekend mid morning show filling the gap this summer something like that

Katie has her own show page so her shows have been put under the show name ‘Katie Thistleton’ not under ‘Jordan North.’ When Jack covered (and for that matter when Harpz covered Matt and Mollie as well) they put it under the show title ‘Jordan North’ but the episode was called ‘Jack Saunders in for Jordan North.’

It just a point on continuity when there’s a transition period think that it’s inaccurate for Jordan sitting in would’ve just called it Weekend Bruch on Radio 1 description X presenter keeping the seat warm for Deans arrival. Katie Thistleton has best hits and new music same for Jack Saunders or Harpz.

Most sure will be the sense of dun comes from a sense of evolution not repeating history to a state of boredom and losing interest @radio1fan feel like it’s going to be the most freshest and bssf quality drive time programming for some years Greg James did some of his best stuff on drive time in my opinion. Not hearing Jordan & Vick doing anything together before it’s going to be good listening. Looking forward to find out what their big signature features. As they are at the start of their daytime weekday radio 1 careers feel there’s going to be some strong bounce of quality. Looking forward to Future Soul and seeing what Clara does with future sounds which feel it’s going to be interesting whether she can bring a sense of energy and unique style that has been fixed for years.

An hour in and it’s such a fun listen, Vick and Jordan have great chemistry, the links feel fresh and completely right for 2021, and there’s plenty of listener interaction. It’s a 10/10 from me. 

I definitely think they will be the next hosts of the breakfast show whenever that may be.

Grimmy's show seemed to be the home of the celebrity guests? Do you think that practice will continue on the new drive show? I've noticed there is a lot less reliance on celebrity guests, even pre covid.. instead favouring the 'Greg' approach of making the listeners star of the show
