Jack Saunders going from strength to strength right now - sounding excellent at night, and really strong filling in on daytimes. Do we think his future is on daytimes in the medium to long term, or just a strong future as a specialist DJ?

I agree. Jack's been sounding good on daytimes. I could see him there in the future, depends if he's offered it and wants that chance. I can see him being at the helm of Future Sounds within the coming years though.

I do think if he is offered a more mainstream prime time listening slot like when Huw did it would be good I’d managed to keep a specialist show to lose him from specialist music would simply be wasting.

He’s got a talent that if did end up in a prime time slot he may end up only doing a short period before switching as like Matt Wilkinson on. Beats 1, Dotty, MistaJam feel he’d simply move forward. He did Vernon Kay’s slot he’s a star quality presenter

I think he's great - I thought it was interesting the pairing with Katie Thistleton. I wondered if there was a future there in the short-term. I won't stop finding it funny hearing him introducing some of the cheesy pop though, given his indie music credentials.

When think Nick Grimshaw & Alice Levine came from Late night specialist slots. when Grimmy had his last week on Drive looked back of the night time show selections of tracks it shows that both Levine & Grimshaw have passion for music but not really had what it takes to be the breaker of new music and new artists. Jack Saunders is talented in similar level to Annie Mac & Zane Lowe both could be entertaining. If Jack did somehow end up in daytime slot with a playlist of mainstream pop style. It would like when Huw Stephens had weekend afternoons and much like Jamz Supernova when she had weekend afternoons on 1 Xtra having a specialist show though was once a week feels vital to their careers.

I feel like Saunders could be the current best in generation breaker of new music. The odd cover of daytime would work excellent for him tho

In a way him by himself or with Katie could’ve been good for Friday mornings could do odd live lounge chatter and new music Friday stuff
