Radio One is still in need of a shake up!

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Please answer this. What have they done to Radio 1? Edith needs a move to weekends, or give her a job on a movie channel. I don't listen for movies, where is the correlation there between music and movies.

Give JK And Joel the job before Scott. Somebody like Vernon or Sara could easily do the early breakfast show, or even Nihal permanently.

Failing that stick Fearne and Reggie on mornings and give weekend breakfast to a more capable DJ.

Totally argee with you about Edith, she never shuts up about movies and hypes everything up to ridiculous proportions. Coxy is terrible as well, he show is just basically Heat magazine in radio form. Wouldn't mind seeing the back of Vernon and Fearne & Reggie as well.

I've grown to like Coxy recently, I would have agreed with you about her being annoying and I couldn't stand her on the breakfast show all those years ago nor when she was on during the afternoons but I have been listening to more of her weekend show as of late.

I don't listen to Edith usually as I tend to be at college then.

well most movies now HAVE songs that end up in the chart in them... :roll:

My question is why NOT have something about movies? or other stuff than JUST music?

I STILL hate Cox-ucker

I agree that Edith's show is slanted too much towards movies but I think that's something that management have encouraged and they can easily reduce the focus on movies. I don't care about what movies are out. I appreciate that some people do, but they seem to have overdone it.

Totally agree about Vernon who's lost touch already and needs to go to work in middle of the road showbiz - like Edith though, she cheers me up lunchtimes when I escape from work for a while, also like Coxy but then I'm a Mum too - don't see how her chat is any worse than Moyles's constant going on about Sophie, football and Longman. Fearne and Reggie? Never actually heard them but saw them on TV, they seemed like Blue Peter Presenters or something.

I Edith (though she does tend to talk about movies alot) but I still like her and think her slot is suitble. Sara Cox is ace and should clearly replace Scott if he goes on holiday. JK and Joel kind of annoy me. I think its the fact they are always on together and I always feel that their discussions are so scripted. Chris Moyles can do no wrong and Fearne and Reg are good too. I've got no real thoughts about Vernon.

I really enjoy the radio one lineup throughout the day. The lineup gives something different every show.... If u listen all day then u know ur gonna hear someting different from every presenter pretty much.... u dont just get the same stuff regurgitated all day...


Where would we be if we did'ht have rules....?

I like the daytime line-up. I only really listen to Scott and Chris (REALLY wakes you up in a morning!) but I do like Jo, she plays very good music, and Edith is still lovely (although I did prefer Colin and Edith).

I don't think they should have given Edith/Colin & Edith the 1-4pm slot. It was better 1pm till 3pm, but I don't think I'd want the drivetime slot to start at 3pm.

it used to be 2-4 back in the old days with mark & lard, in 2000 i think. then it went to 1-3, then 1-4. when simon mayo left in 2000/1 it changed everything around.

Yeah, but now the schedule is much more organised than it once was:

2.00am Vicky Marsden

4.00am Radio 1's Early Breakfast Show with Scott Mills

6.30am Sara Cox

9.00am Simon Mayo

12.00pm Jo Whiley's Live Lounge

2.00pm Mark and Lard

4.00pm Chris Moyles

6.00pm Dave Pearce

Thats 8 DAYTIME DJS! Now we only have 5...and I think the schedule is much better for it.

I'm not a fan of Jo Whiley at all, i'd rather not hear her during the day. I tend to listen to a couple of CD's during her slot.

In general I like Edith but as a Radio DJ, not so much :( I prefered when it was Colin & Edith. I like a bit of banter :)

I like the idea of whoever suggested Drivetime from 3, I'd like to listen to Scott from 3 :)

just becuase it is organised it dosent mean that it is better for the viewers. back then there was more variety of dj, and the station didn't seem so based around celebs and films etc. also if you didn't like a certain dj then you wouldn't have to wait as long as you do now for them to go off of the air. except for simon mayo, but i thought he was good anyway so i didn't have a problem with him.

one day i can imagine radio 1 to be imitated on those strongbow adverts where they take the pi*s out of cheesyness and crap ringtones.
