Going Home with Vick, Katie and Jamie

Good to see some things never change about Going Home. Not even a week in and there's already an absence!

Did chuckle at Vick's 'bets back on' about how long Jamie would be back (to give context this was after Katie said 'put your bets away' about 7th March being the day somebody would be away on 'Going Home'). Said in jest but you could say many a true word said in jest. 

The last-minute addition of Katie, Jamie not having a contract and then being off within the first week does make it all seem a bit messy. If the plan was always that Jamie would be off today why not just do another week of Sam & Danni which at least gives more time to plan for the new show.

I never listened to going home with Jordan after the first two weeks, I thought Vick and Katie are a great combo and Jordan and Katie are a good combo but Vick and Jordan were a terrible combo as Jordan is such a wooden presenter when he’s paired with someone he fancies. It changed towards the end but I couldn’t stand the show. Jordan’s podcast is great and he’s more relaxed then. 
 

However, I have loved listening to Jamie and thought the show was far more enjoyable than it has ever been. I do think that Jamie is a spare and maybe in the long run he won’t work but he’s matured and actually got better at announcements.

I suspect they wanted Vick back to anchor the show next week when they are taking it on the road.

All of these seems very messy, and could’ve been avoided if there wasn’t pettiness from the bosses at Jordan choosing to leave…

Seems a lot more straight forward when there are just two voices. 

The 3 presenter format rarely works on any show on tv or radio. Look at awards shows or entertainment shows. It's very difficult to get all 3 equal airtime without it being messy. I can't think of a successful full time trio other than RMC.

From the listening I've done so far it seems Katie and Vick are against Jamie and he's there temporarily to try and attract a new audience. 

I also think Vick would have been looking to move on as she was going from Life hacks before Jordan went. She will obviously want to travel the world with Calvin and bosses won't agree to that much time off. 

It's a waiting game to see who leaves 1st Vick or Jamie.

Katie is in for the long haul now

Jordan didn’t fancy Vick haha. I actually disagree, they were great together

Listen to their first week of shows and tell me that he doesn’t fancy her. He’s super wooden, awkward and robotic. He was like that when they swapped Katie for Mollie on breakfast. He’s totally unlistenable. But as I’ve said I love his podcast, he’s so relaxed on that.

Vick isn't Jordans type. There's a reason he doesn't talk about those things.

I don't think they know what to do with Jamie. Some links they are desperate to switch off the mics and play a song.

I have to agree, I haven’t been listening every day, but I was today and it was messy… like they were trying to let him speak and then almost immediately trying to cut him off because what he was saying was either inappropriate or just not good radio… I had a feeling it wouldn’t work as a trio. I’m not Vick’s biggest fan, but she and Katie have good chemistry on air and I feel like the current dynamic is getting in the way of any good broadcasting that could be happening

I was invested in the show when it was Vick and Jordan / Katie - now I don't pay attention and might leave the station when Jordan starts on Capital.  What I do hear is a mix of formulaic and awful.

 

It's strange how one person leaving a station can affect your outlook on the whole station.

Yesterday when Katie was off was nearly unlistenable. Shows how vital she is in the show dynamic.

See I don’t agree…I think the three way dynamic is not really working. Vick & Katie are really great together and I enjoy Vick & Jamie together. It’s something between Katie & Jamie that’s not gelling for me. However it’s early days and they are still much better than some other combos. Plus Matt & Jamie were radio comedy gold for me so I don’t think Jamie’s the problem. Just maybe didn’t need to be a three.

Jamie is definitely very divisive though.  Some people's "radio comedy gold" is other people's "unlistenable".  I have liked Matt and Mollie, Matt on his own, Mollie and Jordan etc etc.  But couldn't listen to Matt with Jamie.

No hate on Jamie but I just don't like his sense of humour.

    • Conor Knight is in for Sam & Danni on Sunday 23rd June.
    • James Cusack on 19th July at 1pm.
    • I think it looks Ore in the weekend slot for the summer
    • Best New Pop is disappearing from the schedule after next Friday as well.    Long overdue decision, although it made more sense having the Friday EB presenters do it than Mollie pre-recording it, it should’ve been removed when Matt and Mollie moved to weekend afternoons back in 2021 and replaced with a wider new music show.
    • Still now news on AFTRNOONS T WEEKENDS   
    • I wonder if those Charlie Hedges dance anthems will be repeats of the ones on Saturdays or new programmes. She’s posted on Instagram so I wonder if they’ll be new editions.
    • Hopefully it will cut into their Rickie Melvin or Charlie time lol, it's getting tiresome (to me).
    • This is getting ridiculous. Launching all these schedule changes and still not announcing a new host for weekend afternoons. They’re a bit late on announcing the festivals bit as well. 
    • So RMC show will basically be 'Hello, it's us', followed by the news, then the Live Lounge and 'Goodbye, see you tomorrow'. 1.45 four days a week seems like a bit too short for three hosts 😁 Btw, still no news on weekend afternoons.
    • Roundup: - Radio 1 Breakfast extending to 11am Monday-Thursday only - Sam and Danni hosting Friday EB until January 2025 from Cardiff - New Dance shows: Arielle Free on Radio 1 Dance Morning from 15th July, Danny Howard on Thursday nights, Pete Tong on Saturdays. All on the BBC Sounds Dance stream. - Martha taking over Annie Nightingale’s slot permanently.
    • Later this summer Radio 1 will also launch a number of new shows on the BBC Sounds Radio 1 Dance stream. Arielle Free will host Radio 1 Dance Morning, which will launch on 15 July and be available Monday to Sunday. Danny Howard will present Radio 1’s Dance Party Warm Up, a weekly show available every Thursday (6pm – 8pm) getting listeners ready for the weekend. Pete Tong will curate his Essential History of Dance a weekly show (Saturdays, 7pm – 8pm) dedicated to telling the story of the Dance genre. There will also be a new evening specialist series which will see Radio 1 Dance collaborate with key Dance music labels Defected Records, HE.SHE.THEY. and DnB Allstars. Additionally, Connor Coates will present a daily playlist – Radio 1 Dance – which will come from Northern Ireland, playing the best new, current and classic Dance tracks, and Charlie Hedges’ Radio 1 Dance Anthems will be streamed daily across afternoons. https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/2024/radio-1-summer-schedule-2024/
    • Longer Greg with Sam and Danni covering early breakfast on Fridays until January 2025. Martha is presenting Annie Nightingale's show permanently.
    • I never really started, my association with that 102.2 frequency around my way stopped when Galaxy did. Radio 1 do go mad on artists too, they used to over 20 years ago during my peak listening. These days it's Raye for instance who's severely overrated. But their main playlist is far more expansive. Stuff like Jungle Back on 74 last year which I liked was played by Radio 1, never saw it make Capitals playlist.
    • I find frankly with certain tracks or artists Radio 1 can be just as bad sometimes as Capital at overplaying them. Plus there's certainly an overlap in playlist - whether I tune in to either I'm not too far from Espresso, Rudimental, Benson Boone or Teddy Swims. I'm a bit of a nomad really - the Radio 1 playlist can often be a bit of a miss for me but I wouldn't listen to Capital for long periods either as it understandably feels very commercial.  But also I'm not ready to be pensioned off to Radio 2 yet. Basically I end up a mix of Jordan at Breakfast (but have tuned in to Matt & Mol and Sam & Danni covering Breakfast the past few weeks), dropping into Radio 1 if a DJ or show I like are on and I'll also have a healthy dose of Capital Dance.
    • Calum Leslie in for Shanequa on Life Hacks on 30th June.
